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.
