You're still on your journey… Don't count yourself out!

Always keep the mindset of… "You can never gain too far from your goal that you can't return and lose it!"

Forget the Past!

To get back on track, just stop beating yourself up on how far off track you got. Start with one step in the right direction, like a healthy meal or 10 minutes of exercise and build on from there. Think of each day as a brand new day and keep going! Strive for progress not perfection! And be kind to yourself!

Just Get Back Up

When I stumble or even fall I always try to remember that failing is not falling but choosing to stay down. Sometimes it may take longer to get up but all that matters is that I get there.

It is all in the planning

I try to plan my week on Sunday. I figure out meals for the week, set my workout goals for the week, I like sweets so I let myself have a ww frozen treat each evening. It helps to get me back on track.

Gardening to beat stress, burn calories and grow healthy food.

One of the best ways for me to get back on track after a Winter of too much sitting, is to garden! Great way to exercise and burn calories while growing your own healthy vegetables fruit and flowers. emoticon I also find that being outside surrounded by nature is very Zen and helps to reduce my stress. All good for lowering the numbers on the scale and my Blood Pressure! emoticon

I use little sticky numbers to get back on and stay on track

When I started tracking my weight on SparkPeople last August, I bought a couple of packs of sticky numbers at the office supplies store. I stuck my weight in numbers that day on the tiles in my kitchen. Every time I weigh myself now, I stick the figures under the ones from the time before. 6 months on 1 have a long column of figures documenting my weight loss of nearly 9 kilos. When I feel indecisive about food choices, I look at those little sticky numbers and feel a surge of pride and joy! emoticon

Forgiveness

We all make mistakes, fall off the wagon, gain back the weight we've lost (or some of it), but the best thing we can do is forgive ourselves. We need to look at what we've done wrong, and find what we can learn from our mistakes, but then we need to let it go and move on. Holding on to the guilt and shame will only hold us back. Each day is a new day, a fresh start, a new chance to get things right, to move on and work toward what (or who) we want to become.

Motto to Go

Get a good motto to think about - "It's Not An Option" is a good one - You are going to do what you decided no matter what - It's not an option to not do it !
