I have been suffering from a severe case of "AsSoonAs-itis". The last 6 months have been very challenging financially and emotionally and I put back on about half of the weight I recently lost.

I'm starting to feel better and I'm looking for a new job, but I'm waiting for "something" before I start the next chapter. I think starting a new job would be a great day to start the new me, the v2, but what if that doesn't happen for awhile?

I am precariously close to going back into the 300s, which I said "never again" when I left them earlier this year. So today is a new day, and I'm inspired by my friend SUSANPEI who finds time to workout with 2 kids. Time to get back on track.

    Keep your food and exercise plans pre-documented and then track for their completion. That tactic works every time. It cuts out the mind haggle and compromised results. SP has great exercise videos that can be streamed at night when kids are down to sleep. Go for what you want!

    I'm so happy to see you back here!!! emoticon

    Thanks for your comment on my blog. I'm still struggling, but am not giving up!

    I know ALL about AsSoonAs-itis. I've been dealing with that ailment practically my whole life. My biggest piece of advice is to choose something really small to work on. Don't commit to anymore than that. If you feel up for it, add one more small thing. Don't overwhelm yourself, especially at the beginning. That's usually how I end up failing.

    I've been doing weekly check-ins with DAWNERTH101 the same as we used to do. It's been REALLY helpful. If you want to do something like that, let me know. Either way I'll be here for you!! emoticon

    You're right. The time is now -- not as soon as whatever. Keep pushing, you'll do it!

    I completely agree. I think it's wonderful that you are listening to your inner voice and trying to understand what your hesitation to making your new lifestyle changes could be. Looking for a new job in itself is generally a very stressful time. It's easy to think that WHEN you get a new job THEN you will do this that and the other thing. Of course you will work again try spending this time to think about the type of situation you may want focus on healthy habits now so that when you are working you will have a strong healthy foundation. Best of luck.

    Waiting for the ideal circumstances can be like saying never. I tend to be the same way. Keep playing back your mental tapes of what you hated at your heaviest weight. As the WW saying goes -- "Nothing tastes as good as thin feels."
