I recently had a major setback & a melt down over it . I did get some caring advice from sparkfriends.
It seems that my "falling off the weight loss wagon" has a pattern to it. Always about the halfway point of my goal it seems to fall apart. Some suggestions were to figure out what psychological issues are holding me back & not to beat myself up over it. I appreciated the advice. I did, however come to a different conclusion.
While I agree with not beating myself up over a mistake, I learned that I can use my anger as a tool. I was just angry enough to really push for a solution.
So, I have come up with a new plan. Even though my goals were not unrealistic, I have had ADHD most of my life. So, sometimes even easy tasks need to be broken down even further. I have decided to aim for 10 lbs at a time in about 2 month (8 week) spans.
If anyone disagrees & thinks that this goal is not realistic please let me know. But I'm feeling much better about this now. I just need baby steps.
