A little discouraged..

Thursday, July 03, 2014

Just had a rough day emoticon . I thought I was doing everything right the past 7 days, eating right, walking, working in the yard, but then, NO weight loss! I don't know why but I was crushed! I felt like, "why am I doing all this and nothing is happening". And then, well I just sort of gave in.. went out to eat and really over indulged! It was like that "oh, I feel horrible" moments! emoticon I don't know why, I just got so discouraged but I let food get in control! I know it's not the end of the world or diet but it really got me. I'm sure I'm not the only one that has had this happen but this was my "moment". After a few hours, I fought back! I realized this isn't about the Number on that scale, or the instant gratification, it's about me wanting to eat better and make myself healthier! So what if I had a "moment".. that's all it was, 1, (one) moment! I Refocused and am more determined now.
Was it worth it? to over eat, feel uncomfortable, get upset with myself? NO! It was not worth it at all! I'm still down below my first hurdle... I'm still ready to be a healthier me...I'm still in the race, hahaha emoticon It's a new day, the past is just that, Past! So I "continue" my journey ... Focused! Positive! Determined! I also realize that there are others out there that have their moments and get right back at it and succeed!

    Don't focus too much on the scale - it really is not the only definition of success. Some weeks it doesn't move and some weeks it edges up. It can be cruel. You just need to keep moving forward. Do not be your own enemy and self sabotage. Just keep moving forward. I'm so glad you recovered after over-indulging - that is what it is all about! Good luck on this journey!

Yes, we've all been there on this "healthier me" journey. Dusting yourself off and moving forward is what it takes to get you there.

    You overcame that challenge as a winner. Learning about ourselves is a valuable lesson.

    You have a great attitude. One bad moment doesn't change anything and if you stick with your healthy habits, the scale will eventually catch up. emoticon
