I'm Back

Friday, October 11, 2013

Ok, I am back, and thankfully I've made it back before I gained everything back. So what happened. Well I hit the 250's and I guess I got cocky, figured I had a good handle on everything. I took a break as we were having a vacation and 2 weeks turned into 2 months, and I went kind of crazy. So what is one to do? You get back up, brush yourself off, and start working at it again. It's only a failure if I don't keep trying, and I'm not giving up that easy.

It's taught me that no matter how in control I may think I am, I am always on the edge of losing control. Well it always be this way, who knows, I sure hope not, but for now I need a lot more time of controlling my eating before I can even think of going back onto auto pilot with my food choices. I knew I shouldn't have let me guard down, intellectually I was very aware of that, but emotionally it's another story, and the emotions won out for a time. But I'm back, hopefully a bit wiser than I was, and certainly just as determined as before. In the past this slip would have likely resulted in my gaining each and every pound back, so I am proud of myself for stopping things before they got worse.

So my next goal, getting the hell out of the 270's again and back into the 260's.

    What's that expression? "Fall down 6 times, get up 7"?
