Feeling good & staying the course with my REBOOT

Saturday, April 28, 2012

It makes me feel good to see so many folks signing & passing on the PLEDGE TO NEVER QUIT! I think it's great that so many Sparkers are getting serious. I know that I had to really look at myself and get serious or I was going to go right back to where I was several years ago.

Have I gained weight while on Spark People? YES. However... the dream come true for me is that I lost a LOT of weight... and instead of gaining it all back "and then some".... I only regained about half of what I had lost. Now, so far in 2012 I am seeing some good movement in the right direction on the scale. I am feeling really good about myself and my program. I am really having a good time getting serious and staying motivated.

This week has been a very busy one. It's been full of stress and I am happy to share that I have managed to continue to eat CLEAN and have not given in to compulsive overeating. I have been weighing & measuring everything I eat and drink... and have not had any sugar! I am really happy. The scale is showing it too.

Life is good. Bright blessings to you all. Love, Dawn

    Reading a blog like this is an inspiration to me never to give up - even if I have backtracked. emoticon emoticon Rosa

    emoticon emoticon emoticon I am so happy that your reboot is working. Sometimes it is something as simple as going back to the basics. Stress can wreck havoc on one's diet. It is emoticon that you have not given into it and turned to self medicating with food. There have been many times in the past where I have turned to compulsive over eating to make me feel immediately better only to make me feel twice as worse later.

    Continue on the path you are on because you are doing emoticon

    It simply amazes me how you continue to be such an inspiration to this gal, Dawn. I won’t take the time to ‘count the ways’, however, I do want to share that your never give up attitude is a biggie on that list.

    emoticon for all you have inspired along this gal’s life changing pathway.

    Thanks to the REBOOT Pledge I look forward to hearing of your successes & sharing my own as the summer months go by.

    Week two is going along relatively well for this gal. I experienced a bit of a struggle with portion control &, although, I cannot claim that I made the best choices around that issue, I do rejoice in the fact that I made better choices than I probably would have made before taking my REBOOT Pledge. Yesterday was our anniversary & we had dinner out at Red Lobster – hence the struggle, don’t you know? emoticon I did bring home about a third of the portion, so I give myself a pat on the back for that choice. emoticon

    God bless you, my sweet Sister/Friend!

    You are doing great, Dawn! It is a huge victory to have broken the pattern of lose, gain, gain more.

    We can do it!
