Time to get back on track

Monday, March 03, 2014

Well not sure what really happened. Was going along so well. Was eating right, exercising and for the most part in a good state of mind. Lost weight last week and suddenly found my self eating everything I shouldn't be eating. No exercise the last 3 days and today just slept all day on the couch. At least I did something positive today and read some inspirational words that truly opened my mind to what I was doing. I was setting myself up for failure because I let my mind roam around and started hearing that negative voice telling me " I new you couldn't do it. Hear you go again. Lose a little weight and then give up on yourself. You are never going to change." Don't know why but I now know what to do about that voice. SHUT UP I AM NOT THAT PERSON AND I WILL SUCCEED A few days off my plan does not make me a failure. I am getting off here and going to do some exercise and begin a new streak of successes.

    Portia, you are right to ignore that voice because YOU CAN DO IT! Okay, so you had a bit of a backslide, but just move on from it and get back on track and you will see results! You have been doing such an awesome job, that negative voice is just WRONG!

    There must be something in the air because I went through the very same thing.

    Let's all be in lead engine instead of hiding in the caboose!

    "I new you couldn't do it. Lose weight and then give up." Love your answer back.

    Heard that negative voice myself. I also listen carefully and heard her say she was "scared being smaller." She wanted me to eat because she wanted to protect me. Once I heard that, I answered back. Yeah, I hear that you want me to eat that but it's okay, I've got this and it'll be fine trust me.

    So glad you were able to put an end to your slide. Remember how bad you felt lying on the couch because it'll help you when temptation shows up again.
