Well - this would be entry #1 - maybe trying to sort through some emotions will help me get back on track.
I've always been a stress eater - it's been part of my escape. Trying to deal with stress created this person who numbed anxiety with calories. Being fit took time I didn't have. It took effort I evidently didn't feel was valuable enough.
But then I found it in myself to get the strength. I found this incredible group of women sharing the same journey - the support is amazing.
I did get off track. I weigh approximately 7 lbs. more than I did before I left for the cruise. And I've been back since the 1st of July. I have remained on vacation from the effort it takes to make progress.
What works for me is maintaining a gym schedule. Logging my food. Pre-planning my next day. Getting on the scale each morning. Drinking my water. That's pretty much it, not daunting at all.
I know it's worth it. I'm going to get myself going and get back to 205. That is my first goal. The next goal is 199.
I just have to stick to my schedule.
