Losing Again! & The lies we tell ourselves

Sunday, April 28, 2013

I am very happy to report that just 2 days after marking that 2lb gain, I saw a 4lb LOSS! emoticon Which brought me down to 218! That's my 10lb mark! WOOHOO! emoticon

I'm also doing good at sticking to my exercise routine, but I have to admit that my nutritional choices have slipped a bit under the weight of some recent life stressors. I've turned a corner, though, and decided to but a emoticon on my backsliding. I've enlisted my husband to get on me from now on if he sees me eating or drinking stuff that's against the rules. It won't be easy, but I refuse to eat away all my hard exercise!

Actually, when I made out my rewards chart I thought it would start getting easier around now so I spread out my rewards at this point. I have to work twice as long to achieve one. Only it's not getting any easier. Some days it's harder than ever. I think once you start losing it can be easy to start taking it for granted. "Oh it won't matter if I just skip one day." or "I did half, that's probably good enough. I've had a long day." Only those things aren't true. It does matter if you skip one day because there's no guarantee missing another day will be within your control. You could get sick the next day and then you'll miss out on even more days. And doing just half effort doesn't gain you the same results that full effort does. But it's so easy to believe the lies when you're tired or you'd rather be doing something else, isn't it?

    Ooooh, so so easy to believe those lies! When all you want to do is crash the LAST thing you want to do is expel more energy exercising. But stand firm! You'll get there.

    Congratulations on your success. What you write about taking it for granted after a while is so true. I find myself doing that from time to time and then having to have a talk with myself and recommit.
