Gained back 6lbs :( Reset button FIRMLY pressed

Tuesday, March 05, 2013

I weighed myself this weekend and was pretty surprised to see I had gained back every pound that I lost last year in about 3 months. 6lbs poof "We're baaaack", 2 inches poof, "Well hello I'm you're gross new waistline". Ugh! Time for a pep talk!

You're not all the way back at the beginning, but this sure is crappy! Your stomach is sticking out, you feel gross, and you never have any engery. What happened to the promises you made to yourself? You said you'd never go back, EVER, and that's exactly what will happen if you don't start making changes. These past months you've been lazy and stupid. You've been overwhelmed by work, but you are not allowed to use that excuse any longer! You know you've slipped back into old habits, and now you're paying the price. Eating unhealthy snacks while watching tv, ordering fries with ranch at Red Robin and sugary drinks to boot. Child what were you thinking? You're smarter than that!! Fine steal a couple of fries off his plate but don't eat a whole serving! And no more strawberry lemonades or rootbeer floats! Water, water, water. You'll save money and your waistline!

And just how do you expect to lose weight if you're not working out? You won't, so show up and shut up girlfriend. Walk, jog, do yoga or some other dvd, lift weights, just do SOMETHING at least 4 times a week.

You can't change what's happened, but you can make changes for a better future. So press the reset button and don't look back!

    Love you pep talk! I need those every now and then!
    I also love your "no excuses".... Life is what happens while making other plans.... we all have stress ~ it's all in how you learn to deal with it!

    I would tell you ~ don't deny yourself the "treats".... everything in moderation! If you deny yourself, you are more likely to splurge (and go overboard) the next time! Thus the reason I keep Hershey's kisses around... when I get to craving chocolate, I allow myself one or two.... it's much better to do that than to eat the entire bar because I have told myself I can't have it! So you're right ~ steal those fries off his plate ~ or even allow yourself a sugary drink here and there ~ don't get bored with your water :-)

    Reset pressed ~ March forth ~ (oh that was yesterday's date - hee hee) so March on!
