A Couple of Compliments...and I gain 3 lbs

Tuesday, November 08, 2011

Why is it that the moment I get a compliment about how great I look I sabotage myself, fall off the healthy eating wagon, and stop exercising?

I was happily and faithfully going to the gym 4-6 times a week. I carefully prepared meals, counted calories. Using Spark People, I tracked food and activities, read posts daily.

I lost 15 lbs. Feeling great, looking good. And, yet, a couple of well-intended compliments, and I go flying off the wagon.

In the last 10 days, I have regained 3 lbs. I choose today, to stop the sabotage, to be free of the fear. Today, I commit to my health, my son, and my future.

What pushes you off the path to health? Are you ready to commit?

    Feel good about the compliments and don't let the +3 lbs get to you. You caught yourself (it might just be a natural fluctuation, anyway) and are getting back in the game.

    I've been letting myself slide on the exercise on my week that I work (I work 5 overnight 10 hr shifts in a row every-other-week) so signed up for the 10-minute per day exercise challenge. I've been working really hard to get at least 10 minutes in a day and today was my 11th day straight of doing it. I'm hoping that doing this for 4 weeks straight will be what I need to get me over my little plateau.
