I fell off the wagon...

Thursday, October 21, 2010

I am hoping that starting to blog will keep me focused again, even. If nobody reads this. Over the last month or so I have not been really good about sticking to my goals. I had lost 15 but had plateaued - I was hovering at the same place and I can see why. I would have about 3 days per week when I would surpass my calorie goals.

In the last two weeks it has all gone down the drain. I have been overeating just like I used to. Business travel, dinner dates, my birthday, weddings...the willpower just disappeared and I even stopped tracking my food every day.

I put on 5 pounds!!!

I need to get back on track but I am worried about next week. I have 3 work receptions, 3 breakfasts and 3 lunches coming up. How will I resist and get back into the swing? What can I tell myself to resist the appetizers and cupcakes and apple crisp?

    You have already identified the problem! Now you need to problem solve how YOU can work it out. If you know there is going to be temptation, then plan ahead. You can get rid of those 5 pounds and get back on track.

    I have been in your shoes many times. I look at it this way. I shed 20 and gain back 10, I am still 10 down, I get back on track, drop 20, gain 10, I am down 20 overall! I can't dwell on my lowest, I can only compare where I am and where I was when I started. I am not in a race, there is no prize for hitting a target rate sooner than later.

    I have also discovered that if I am doing what I should, gaining a few pounds and getting back on track helps break through.

    I also know your upcoming dilemma! I travel for business and often work odd hours on the road. After a long day, starving and on the way to the hotel late at night, fast food looks good.

    So I have lost 50 pounds. Really I have lost 90 pounds, this summer has been tough. A cruise, daughters wedding, road trips, I am the same place I was in June, but am healthier, fitter and thinner than I was a year ago when I was 50 pounds lighter!

    Keep up the good work, stay connected to SP, and you will make it!
