Sandy, I agree. Old habits can come sneaking in so quickly if we let them come in.
It also take so much longer to establish new healthy habits, bur breaking them and returning to the way we're before is too easy and sometimes tempting.
That's why maintenance takes effort and work that is so worth it. We deserve to be healthy and to take of us first. It's a work in prossess and it can be done!
I remind myself every day how far I've become. How many healthy habits I eastablished already. How I feel great and healthy than ever before.
I'm willing to do whatever it takes. I do NOT want to go back to the "old" me ever again!
Enjoy and appreciate your progress so far. Look at how much you've achieved and accomplished alreday.
Slow and steady wins the race!
You're right. It takes work and commitement to follow our plan especially when life is not as smooth as we want it to be. I believe that it takes lots of practice and awarness, and eventually it might get even easier.....
Let's do it!!! One step at a time. never to feel overwelmed with too much to change.
La La La, la La la, we'll reach our goals! (This is a song. In C major)
