Getting Back On Track

Monday, September 01, 2008


This is a letter to myself:

Dear Mina,

You've already lost 23-24ish lbs. and you are in a stand still point. It's time for you to get back in gear! You have already accomplished so much as it's not time to give up! Yes, granted that you have moments where you end up binging or eating mass amounts of food on any given day (especially holidays), but it doesn't mean you can't move forward from it. Think about what you did today. Even though you ate nearly 3,000 calories, you managed to get your butt up and burn 900 calories!! Look at your motivation, girl!

It takes time to keep moving forward, but you're learning to have discipline in the process. Anything you do CAN be done with God's help and motivation by your side. You only have another 30 lbs. to lose before you hit your goal! Imagine your feelings and how you will look once you get there. Also imagine the ultimate goal of getting others in shape and perhaps inspiring some on SparkPeople. You can do anything as long as you desire it and want it with all of your heart.

Mina, look ahead, and KEEP GOING!

Sincerely yours,

Your Face in the Mirror.

    OMG, this is exactly how I feel too.
    I have about 25 lbs. to go and I am losing steam. I had to readjust my goal and extend it out, so I don't totally give up. I feel like eating all the time now and I always give in. If I can at least make it to 140 by my vacation time, I will feel better.

    But, my goal is 130 by end of-February.

    I know you can do it....and it's good that you keep exercising on those days that you eat more. That will help you maintain and not actually gain anything at all. It's better to be at a standstill than to actually gain it all back.

    I like your letter to yourself!

    Just keep going.
    I know when I eat too many calories one day I try and eat less the next couple of days so that my average is still within my calorie range.
