Avoiding the scale...

Tuesday, April 12, 2011

You know things are bad when you are avoiding the scale because you know the news won't be good. For months now, really if I'm honest, since last Fall I have been flailing, telling myself lies and generally losing my way. For the past month I've been avoiding the scale all the while lamenting that my smaller clothes are getting uncomfortable.

Today I decided I was done with this insanity and I got on the scale. It wasn't pretty. I've gained back 20 of the 50 lbs I lost last year. Why oh why do I do this to myself? I've been down this road before and I don't like it. So today I am stepping off this road onto a murky path in the woods, in search of the road I was on last year. I liked that one better.

So to my dear spark friends, I am back, hat in hand, I know you're here for me and I thank you in advance...

    I lost my way around Thanksgiving last year and it really got bad around New Years'. But, you absolutely CAN get going in the right direction again. You gained 20 pounds...yes, but you can lose 30,40,50. You absolutely can do it, if you want it enough and just keep working to make it happen.

    One day at a time, one choice at a time. Don't focus on past mistakes, except as a reminder to keep going in the right direction this time. Celebrate all of your successes.
