So many things are going through my mind this evening. It's been a while since I blogged. And 'someone' reminded me of that... this past week.

1. Support group
2. Trainer
3. Meals, planning, logging
4. Diet Pop
5. Emotions
6. It's time for change

About a year ago I started a weekly support group. The group is still going. Sometimes I'm there alone. Sometimes 2 or 3 of us. Probably a total of 20 folks have been in the room at one time or another. We are looking at changing the time that will help a few people that haven't been able to come at the present time. There are times I want to quit the group but I know it's another way for me to reach out to others and to help myself in the process.

I texted a trainer this evening that I've worked with before. I let her know I'd gained back up to 300 --- when I was working with her I was in the 270s-280s. I know that I need to be willing to spend time and some money to get back on track.

Meals - planning and logging: I'm thinking of trying some frozen meals again supplemented with lots of added vegetables and fresh fruits as well as some healthy snacks like nuts and dairy. Back to making planning a priority and keep track of the food daily. It used to be a priority for me --- and it worked.

Diet pop streak --- at this time I'm going to work on the food, exercise and water but not worry about the diet pop at the moment. There may be a time when I have to address this again but for now is not the time --- there's an emotional connection with diet pop that I'm just not willing to continue working on at this time.

Emotions --- some of the thought processes today have been having some time off work waiting on a repairman, watching a weight loss program on TV this evening. But it's a good process --- not a poor me thought process but its time to change things up process.

I've let 7 months slip by and I'm where I was in January physically but not where I was emotionally.

I know I have what it takes ---- I just have to take the time to use the tools I have available and take the time it takes for ME.

    A lot of us are trying to "pull ourselves up by our bootstraps" lately! We just need to keep putting one foot in front of the other and making the choice to continue - no matter what! I figure I'm better off in SP and maintaining than I am NOT in SP and gaining!!!

    You ALWAYS have friends here that are looking out for your back!!

    Look at working back one good habit at a time.

    Randy sometimes that's exactly what we must do, ... re-evaluate things, so good for you hon. Do not make hasty decisions, get all your ducks in a row and then make your new start. Starting over is not the sign of failure it is def a sign of success !!!

    Never say never, and never give up the fight. Fall six times get up seven. One day at a time, one pound at a time, that's all it takes. You know you can do it and you will.

    SP and all your friends are here to support you along the way.
