I saved these tips a while ago and I keep reading them over and over again. One might think that it will get easier after following those tips for a while, but I noticed many times that one can fall back into the old habits so fast.
I am like you, Amy, I don't want to go back to where I was at the beginning of this year. I am far from being perfect, but in the past few months I have learned so much about myself, fitness, nutrition and weight loss that I don't want to quit and give up on my accomplishments. I just wish that it would be easier and faster at times emoticon

Not long ago, you were energetic and determined to start your healthy lifestyle. Starting with enthusiasm and hope, you watched your food intake diligently, exercised like it was going out of style, and even avoided the temptation that seemed to lurk around every corner. You were confident that you were going to reach your goals once and for all!

Then certain tragedy struck! You ate an extra piece of birthday cake. Realizing you had “blown” your diet, you ate another and another and couldn’t get it together the next day either. Or worse, you missed one workout, and that turned into a whole week away from the gym. After that, your momentum to start over again was gone, and your gym bag hasn’t left the closet since.

Every time you misstep on your healthy journey, you have two choices: to keep walking backwards, which will surely take you even further away from your goals; or to accept your lack of perfection as normal and forgivable, and take not one, but two positive steps down the path that brings your closer to the future you want.

If you’re reading this, you might have been walking backwards for a while. But instead of waiting for the next day, week, month or even year to overhaul your habits, start TODAY. And start small. You can’t go from the recliner to running or from burgers to Brussels sprouts in an afternoon. But you can do one, two or even a handful of small things that will help you regain your momentum for healthy living.

I found a lot of helpful tips here. I know I have been up and down with staying focused and on track lately that any little tip helps. I don't ever want to get back to where I was 9 months ago. I need to pick myself back up!!!!


Hope some of these help you!

Changing My Life One Day At A Time....
