Dangerous Backslide Under Control
Thursday, April 29, 2010
Finally got myself anchored from a major backslide. I was going great and had lost 55 pounds when my backslide started about five weeks ago. I regained 18 pounds and was in danger of gaining it all back which is what has happened to me so many times before. I had reacquired the sugar addiction and lost the desire to eat healthy food. I could see myself spiraling out of control. I made an attempt to get under control about a week ago, but it only lasted a day. I went to a baseball game and the ribs, chili dogs, ice cream, beer, french fries were too tempting. I broke down again. Now, I've been on track within my calorie range for three days and I've broken the sugar addiction. I've lost seven of the 18 pounds I gained during my slide, which makes me feel good. I realize I am still in a fragile condition and must be diligent to make sure the addictions do not resurface. I have a chance now and I want to make the most of it.
