I have been failing at the game of weight loss!

Monday, July 14, 2014

I have been pretty much on a downward spiral since last November. Not one exact thing, but a multitude of things have added up and I have put on 30lbs. I could list all my reasons and excuses, but at the end of the day it really doesn't matter. I'm depressed. I keep trying to restart my weight loss attempts, and I keep messing up. I feel like it is all mental. I have myself psyched out and feeling like I just can't do it. I know I can. I've lost well over 100lbs before. I just need to get back into the routine. I am restarting now. It feels a little freeing to get this all out in the open lol. Maybe it's just what I needed!

    Thanks for sharing this. No one fails at the "weight loss game" except those that don't keep trying. I hope things have gone better for you this past week.

I can tell you that initially this week has been tough for me, as I was doing a lot of binge eating. I am still not really on track, but getting there. I know that I am eating way too much salt for me & not drinking enough water, so today, I am focusing on getting my 8 glasses of water. Each little step helps move a person in the right direction, keep adding just one or two small goals at a time or slowly increase the goals that you have set for yourself.

I can so appreciate how important routine is for keeping a healthy lifestyle. That is one of the things that kinda frightens me about working nights, is that I will have to get used to that routine again and may loose my current momentum. It has often been when I have been stressed out or trying to do things quickly/"on the fly" that I take the easy way out, which ends up not being a healthy decision.

I want to wish you the best in this great journey to a better life.
