What changed?

Thursday, April 29, 2010

I was doing so good, the motivation was there, I was loving trying and tasting the new foods, the exercise was a little difficult to get started but once I did start, I enjoyed it. I was seeing results, the scale was going down, the bp was going down, the clothes were getting looser, I had more energy.

So why? Why can I no longer get through a single day without eating junk food or a big fatty meal? Why now do I now procrastinate the exercise so long that I don't end up doing any?

I don't know what changed? I still get up in the morning with every intention of eating right and exercising, my head it telling me that this is a new day, new beginning, we can get back on track and do this right but with the slightest temptation presented to me... I cave. :(

I had lost 19.5 pounds, in this last week or so I have gained back 7.5 of it! This is not good! On Monday I have to go for my cholesterol test and the results will dictate whether or not I have to go on another medication, I really don't want that! Backsliding now couldn't be worse timing and not understanding why means I don't know where to begin to try and fix it.

Ugh, why does this have to be so hard? How do I stop this yo-yo from climbing back up the string?

    I couldn't agree with lilpat any more! I try different exercises all the time. Each day I do something new. You also might want to try getting up and getting the exercise out of the way so that you start your day off on the right foot and that might help with the tempations. Also, thinking about your changes as a trying to get healthy and not losing wieght might help!! And can't say enough to LOG your food. If you have to write it down it might stop you from putting it in your mouth to begin with!!!

    Your body and mind get bored doing the same things over and over. New food is good but if you reward yourself with a favorite every now and then it is easier to keep at the "healthy" food.
    Learn new exercises or try new and different exercise classes! emoticon
