I had been feeling disappointed in myself for gaining back ten of the forty-five pounds I lost. It took me two years to lose all of that weight and in one winter I went from 156 pounds to 166 pounds. It was a bitter pill. I knew it was coming. I had gotten overly confident. I relaxed on some of my hard rules. #1) put my snack in a small bowl #2) drink a full glass of water before each meal #3) exercise everyday
Recently I have even allowed some junk food to enter the house--This has been a big No-No until recently.
I have been looking back on previous blogs and I began to feel better about my current disappointment. -I have come such a long way. It is invigorating to know that I was capable of losing 45 pounds in the first place. 10 more is not going to be a big deal.
I have changed so many of my bad habits, only a few had begun to creep back in. I still don't drink soda on a daily basis. This had been the hardest habit to kill. However I have been treating myself to a few a week from the vending machine at work. -this needs to stop right away. Soda is my worst enemy and is not worth my health. -Dark chocolate is a much better alternative.
Today I will start by drinking water before every meal, putting my snack in a small bowl and keep moving throughout the day.
If I pull back on the reigns a bit and follow my own rules I will be back on track in no time.
KAYOTIC Do what works, and it sounds like you know what that is! Kudos to you for making those habits stick, and for recognizing the setback and correcting it! Look forward, not backward!!! 980 days ago
