Beating yourself up isn't going to help, frankly. It does take a little while to get your bearings again after you've been gone for a while, but you're better off figuring out WHY you lost your momentum and lost track of what you were doing than beating yourself up about it.
Learn from the past, then let it go. :) Keep up the great work!

Are you hiding from who you could be?

...to go from feeling like "I'm just getting back to SP" to the feeling of "I'm at SP now, although there was a time when I wasn't."

I'm feeling somewhere in the middle. I've been back 6 weeks and I still expend a lot of mental energy beating myself up / going over the reasons why I was away for so long (several years in my case!). At the same time, I'm also focused on what I'm doing now, so I don't think it's hurting me. But I do wonder when I'll be able to let that "I used to be ___" go and just get on with it.

I still compare stuff I do now with stuff I did then. For example I regained my strength and in a few ST exercises, I'm now lifting heavier weight than I ever did before - and this is a big deal to me. And for the other exercises, where I'm "behind" where I was, I feel impatient to get back to where I was.

Anyone have an experience with this to share?
