I keep telling myself "It's not that much" "I'll start again tomorrow". I have preached the message of "Tomorrow Syndrome" for a long time now but I have let myself get the syndrome again. As of this morning I'm up 30 pounds from my goal weight that I reached in 2009. Every little bit I've had an excuse. I can NOT let myself continue to deny that I am out of control. I've gone back into old eating habits. I have not been exercising like I should. This morning I'm cleaning house and I ran across some size 12 shorts. I tried them on and they wouldn't come over my thighs. WAKE UP CALL !!! It's not "how they are made". It's me.
OK now that I have vented on myself I'll tell you I started today with my weight loss breakfast. I logged it. I'm cleaning house. I did some weight lifting and a few minutes on the stationary bike. It's a start and I'm not done for the day.
I have found myself in maintenance mode and I haven't reached my goal weight yet. I'm glad that I'm not gaining my weight back and I think the key to not gaining it back is to keep moving. Even though you may go back to your old eating habit, exercise will help you maintain what you have lost. 1531 days ago
You can indeed do it! One small, healthy step at a time. Remember, we all fall into "old" habits at times, but the important part is that you have identified the problem and have already started taking steps to remedy it!
I'm in exactly the same boat. I cave when it comes to sugar cravings, eating whatever I want. FitBit (fancy step counter) quit AGAIN and how do I deal with it? By eating TWO pieces of cheesecake!!!!! Time to get back in the game. You've done GREAT today. Thanks for sharing. 1534 days ago
