I slipped...and finally found my motivatation to restart the journey

Thursday, June 28, 2012

I’m back and I’m motivated again. How I slipped away, I’m not sure. I created so many wonderful habits and stuck with them for a long, long time. I came into a very stressful time in my life and that’s when things slowly started unraveling. The thing is I noticed that I was slipping…I’d describe it as crashing…a downward spiral….and I became aware at some point, however I found myself unable to stop it.

The important point is I’m here, I’m motivated. I’ve done this before and can do it again. I know the steps, I just have to follow them. I am atuned to some of the obstacles I may come across and how to handle them.

It’s been 2 days without sugar and I don’t miss it. I think getting to this point is a tough one. I’m here though. No cravings. I am walking daily. I am drinking water daily. I am getting ready to take a trip so a little nervous about getting through it. Better that I started ahead of time and stay alert and aware for slip ups or triggers!

    Thanks for the support Tashamalie! I agree - sugar is tough. Finding the will and motivation was the hardest part though. Once I finally found that, I only had some cravings the first day. So far so good for the second day.
