Two days in...

Tuesday, February 02, 2010

Well, true to my nature, I had a stumble tonight. I seriously thought about giving up and going on a full binge, and this is only my second day!

I had done so good these two days with my calories and learning my way around the website and actually getting on my stationary bike for the first time in a while.

But I don't know...when I got home from work, I just wanted a sandwich. I didn't feel like calculating calories or recording my food. The sandwich was joined by a pile of corn chips, a soft drink, and some M&M's. And then the "so what" mentality kicked in full force. Why not just eat everything I could find and chalk it all up to another failure?

But hubby and I went to the class that one of our church members is teaching on Tuesday nights about healthy eating and weight loss. It was our second weigh-in tonight and I'd gained two pounds since last time, a month ago. That just added more fuel to the fire, and I started planning in my head what I was going to eat when we got home from class!

But somewhere during the class, my momentum came back, and now that I'm home and relaxing, I'm ready to pick up and start moving forward again! Tonight was just a little stumble, I'm sure there'll be more along the way. But I feel better tonight knowing that I CAN start back on my journey, that the little stumble didn't knock me all the way down!

    We all stumble along the way, but don't let it get you down. If you make a little mistake, call it just a small mistake and try your best not to give it all up. It takes a lot of time to get this thing going, but when you start seeing results you'll be so excited... as i see in your status .. you lost 2.2 lbs! Way to go!! Keeping tabs of what I've eaten during the day as I have each meal helps a lot in keeping me on track. The same goes for my new rule - if I want to watch TV at all, I have to be on the treadmill for at least 30 minutes while watching the show or I can't watch it at all. Normally when I hop on I end up walking for more than the 1/2 hour (to my surprise, I get so engrossed in what the show is about I don't realize I've walked farther). Now exercising is starting to feel good. Don't give up... you're getting your momentum now! :) emoticon
