About a week ago, I wrote a blog about having hit the 40 pounds lost mark. How exciting, right? Well this week I have to write about re-committing to the program. On weigh in day emoticon I found that I had gained a pound. emoticon

I felt just awful when I looked down and saw that extra pound. All that hard work undone by one week of carelessness and not sticking to the program. It started out being just a day - giving myself a one day break. It turned into almost a whole week of slacking off. I blew two challenges and have to start them both over from the top.

No more slacking, I said. Time to recommit and be consistent, I said. So what do I do first day? Well, I did track everything, even if I did make some poor food choices at my daughters Super Bowl party and missed all my nutrition goals. I got in all my water and then some. I did NOT exercise, not one bit. Some re-commitment, huh?

Even as I write this, I question how committed I really am. Where is my motivation? I think sometime you just have to make something happen despite not having the drive, the motivation. So, I am just going to have to do it. Do it until I believe it.

    I think tracking your food on a day when you know you weren't perfect shows a commitment to be honest with your self. I also use a Dr. Oz and Dr. Roizen technique called a You-turn. The idea is that the very moment you acknowledge a choice you're unhappy with, you start fresh immediately. No guilt, no worries and most importantly not letting one poor choice to snowball into many.

    You can do this!

    emoticon Just take one day at a time. You're building new habits and thinking. As my hubby keeps telling me, "How you are, and think, didn't happen overnight. Be patient with yourself."
