Trying to regain momentum...

Tuesday, March 12, 2013

The struggle continues. The difference is I know I can do it. I believe!

I am recognizing why I slip up and sometimes fall. I wish I could wish away the extra pounds put on the last few months but know that's not possible. Sooo...I keep tracking and making healthy choices more often than not. I look back at logs and blogs and read about successes and struggles of others to keep myself from denial, traps, hard times. I do still get really discouraged and frustrated that the weight does not just drop off but I keep refocusing. I think back to the initial 30 lb drop that seems to have happened so easily but then I read back and realize it was not so. The last 20 lbs took a lot longer. And so the next 20 may take even longer but I cannot just quit. I am also learning that even in maintenance you cannot ever just quit. Each stage has its own agendas and strategies must be ever-changing.

Sparking has been my guide and plan to continue. I love checking on Spark friends when I need info, motivation, and inspiration. Lets Keep Sparking!

    I'm with you. I gained 7 lbs. since January 1 with death and illness in my family. I started back again March 1 and am not looking back. I'm eating clean and exercising regularly again. We will make it and we won't go back! This is a lifestyle change. It's forever. I'll be watching you! Let's do this! emoticon

    Hang in there...I've been losing the same weight for 5 years but this time it seems different because I'm focusing on life changes instead of just weight loss. Sounds like you are on the right track...GOOD JOB!!
