Fell off the Wagon, but am getting back up again

Monday, May 20, 2013

Okay, things were going good and I was flying strong but then I fell down hard and instead of getting back up I just stayed down. I'm not quite sure what happened I was tracking everything but then I think I wanted to see really good numbers so I was eating less and less until I just snapped and started eating too much and stopped tracking. So then I was going over and over in my mind what do I do now, I failed I have to do something else, but the truth was it was working so I just have to go back to tracking everything that goes in my mouth. I will begin immediately, not tomorrow but immediately.
This didn't happen overnight and I have to realize that it's not just about the weight it's about why it got there in the first place and that is a lot harder to deal with.
So I will consider today as Day 1 of Tracking. My goal is to be consistent for 21 days and after that I hope it will be a habit, if not then I'll focus on another 21 days. Little steps, baby steps and I will get there.

    Good idea on the 21 day thing. Adzy turned me on to it... I'm only going in to day 3 tomorrow but it makes things look easier to me doing them in small chunks. Good luck!

    21 days is exactly how I'm tackling this too! Just 21 days at a time. It's soooo much easier that way! I'm on my third 'cycle' of 21's working! Give it a go. You can do it.

    Good for you for getting back on program! The important thing is that you are able to start again with a fresh new slate. I'm trying to break a snacking habit and I am on week two. It's hard but I'm looking forward to the third week and hopefully will have broken the habit. Good luck to you. emoticon Mary
