Picking myself back up and dusting myself off...

Happy March!

I just got back from that trip to the Bahamas that was supposed to motivate me and get me going on my road to being fit. Ha! Well, yeah, that didn't happen. I went to the Bahamas at 250.5 pounds. I swam, I played, I had fun, but deep down inside I was kicking myself for not having followed through with my goals. Shopping for the swimming suit before the trip was a delight too...not!

Now here I am, still overwight, sad and disgusted with myself. Why can I not follow through with goals? How do I get motivated? How do I stick with a plan? How do I face temptation and come out victorious?

I have no real idea what the answers are, but I am picking myself back up and dusting myself off and starting over again.

The trip to the Bahamas was a trip with my husbands company, next years trip was announced to be to the US Virgin Islands. I'm very excited and I would love if I was healthier and more fit when the time comes. I'm building smaller goals...focus on one month at a time, 1.5 pounds a week, get moving, plan ahead for meals...

Wish me luck and whatever else you've got. I could certianly use it.

    Be gentle with yourself. You did the best that you were able to at the time. Now it's about making progress and doing better. emoticon

    emoticon I have more success when I plan ahead...I try to make my meal plan first thing in the morning. I know people say "one day at a time"...but a lot of days I do "one minute at a time"...cravings are tough to get through...I'm always glad when they have passed though. And I have conquered the beast! (my new favorite thing is gum that taste like mint chocolate chip ice cream--it helps)... I hope you still had an amazing trip. Hope you have a great spark-day!
