I'm back-and I'll show my daughter-in-law!

Monday, September 06, 2010

I just posted this to a friend on the "Eating Because You're Bored" Team. She had been away from Spark for awhile and was feeling bad. I thought I'd like to share this with anyone else who might have been slipping a little.

I kind of drifted away because I got a little overconfident. I visited my family in Florida last June and had WAY too much fun, gained a little vacation weight, then came home and kept up my "vacation." All my bad habits came back, and I gained a little more vacation weight - only I wasn't on vacation anymore! I came back to Spark a couple weeks ago and I've managed to re-lose almost 4 of the 10 pounds I've gained since June. But today, I went to visit my son and DIL, and she began making fun of me for gaining weight. She said it's because I no longer live with her and don't have anyone to "nag" me out of bad habits. GRRRR!!!! I was so angry and depressed - I had a snack, but it was the one I had planned for this time of day. (3 p.m. which is always a dangerous time for me--if I'm going to overeat, this is when I do it.) Then I sat down and went to Spark and found the motivation I need to get back on track and stay there. I know I can do it, and I will!

    I believe you can and will do it! Don't give your DL so much power over you. She is not the reason for your successes and she is not the reason for your failures. She may or may not have your best interests at heart but either way, it comes down to you and your decisions. It was and never will be about anyone else but you.

    You know what to do, so follow through and keep on the path. You are going to succeed. emoticon
