I remember the year I was the most successful at losing weight, I think it was 2010. Best year of my life- I was tracking calories, exercising, and just loving life. I was structured, determined and it was paying off. Then......
By the time I revisited my WL goals again I was back in the hole and I dont even remember how it happened. I had a closet full of new clothes for my new body and I was back in my old one, AGAIN!!!! With more weight to lose than before.
The one thing I remembered that was different when I was succeeding was my mindstate. I remember that one mistake did not throw off all my hard work and I remember even after I had a snack to much or an extra drink or bigger than normal breakfast it did not defeat me. I just got back on the wagon and kept going. I also had realistic goals.
So this year started and already I was feeling the urge to do something drastic like try a fad diet to lose 100lbs in a month.LOL. then I remembered that I had the most success when I took things slow and easy and was actually NOT on a diet.
Just by doing a few things differently I saw the most results. So by just trying this again I am currently down 8lbs for the month already and I am not starving or miserable or doing anything that can potentially harm my body. I am so happy with my results and I am constantly adding one good thing and subtracting one bad thing periodically as I am ready.
Today I am very proud of myself and I just wanted to note this moment so when I feel down or did not do so good in the future I can look back at this and remind myself to get back up and back on my proverbial horse and keep going.
