falling of the non existent wagon...

Monday, May 21, 2012

So, how many times have you done this? Or as there is no actual wagon, claimed to have done it...I think i just got a ahha moment with the whole wagon situation...So many times in my life have i started a 'diet' and lost 20 50 or even 100lbs and then some how just tumbled of this no existent wagon...the problem was i even thought this wagon ran over me taking away all my gumption to eat right or work out...Sigh...but the truth is there is no wagon, having a bad day week or even month the truth be told ur still on the wagon as slow as it might be going life is an ever going journey it dose not stop just because you quit working out or eatting right it also dosent quit when u gain ur weight back...i am just starting to learn this...for most of my life i think iv been either dieting or eatting my way up as high as i can go...when im losing weight i go overboard my whole life is counting calories to make sure i dont get to many or to few for the working out im doing and when im not dieting im all about eating and eating as much as i cant because im not trying to lose weight so why not! Its like there is no middle road iv never quit gotten the fact that this is a LIFESTYLE change nothing more nothing less...everyday i must learn to blance the fact i want to be healthy with the rest of my life and not swing between the two extrems...dose anyone else struggle with this? Im making it my goal to live my life fat or not and learn to just eat real whole foods and less prossed crap...throw in a work out when i can get it and bam lasting weight loss will follow...sometimes at 3am you think of the greatest thing...

    YES!!! I too, am learning to live life regardless. :) I've "fallen off" the wagon so many times, so to speak. This time it's different. I know that for me, I want instant gratification, and if when I do not see that, I just give up. It's a hard habit for me to break. You can and will do this!

    It's definitely a learning process. But that is the key word-learning!! We learn about ourselves and our habits and attitudes and that is how we know which things we need to change and focus on. It's a battle we will fight for the rest of our lives. So the earlier you can overcome this fell-off-the-wagon-again-moment, the better, right?! I am just now starting over with committing to the Spark again after many fall offs since I was pregnant and had my son. It's not easy by any means!! I wish you the very best of luck!! =)

    Great Blog!
    Staying away from the junk food is my biggest problem.
    The sad part is I feel awesome when I eat right.
