It Took Me 6 Days

Tuesday, January 12, 2010

Well, I did it. I'm back to the bottom of my goal range (129-135). It took me 6 days after making a poor choice about the portion of chocolate candy I selected.

I really do think I'm making progress. For years I would give up in despair when I messed up. Now I know you just keep trying.

Next time I'm faced with chocolate candy I'll try to remember it took 6 days to get back to where I wanted to be. Maybe I'll make another choice. And if I don't, I'll remember not to panic. It will just take 6 days, give or take a few.

    I did the same thing - got up a bit above my goal range over the holidays and then because of achilles tendonitis, I couldn't run. It took me almost 2 weeks, but I'm down to my low end again. And the tendon is doing better, so I'm able to do a little bit of working out:)

    There you go! Here you are!!

    Lifestyle changes, aren't they awesome?!

    That is why I am not afraid of weight maintenance! Because no matter what happens, I know I can reach my weight again!!

    Freedom from fear is awesome! We will never be overweight again!!

    Well done for taking control and pulling back. All that Bootcamping must have helped.

    Now that you've come down from back up it shows that you can overcome one of the biggest challenges of maintenance. It's a good lesson to chalk up.

    You are doing well!
    If you do mess up some time via unhealthy choice you just have to accept and MOVE ON. Tomorrow's another day!

    It is all about making healthy choices. You are doing a great job because you look great.

    Great job! That is exactly what a healthy lifestyle is about - not letting detours derail you from your destination! It's okay to enjoy a portion-controlled treat, knowing that you can and do make healthy choices the majority of the time...
