Happier and Healthier
Tuesday, March 07, 2017
Coach Becky's video was what I needed a year ago when my weight was stuck and I started falling back into my old habits and became discouraged with my continued weight loss of 92 pounds - REALLY....discouraged! That was my body telling me something and I did not listen to it!! So over the course of a year I regained 40 pounds and have struggled getting the momentum going again. I discovered yesterday that my exercise habits are through the roof, that my mind set and motivation are returning and now I once again need to refocus on my food choices. Overall I eat very healthy and I track pretty diligently but have been snacking mindlessly during times of boredom. The only thing holding me back at this point the the thoughts of eating as much as I please and at times just making bad food choices and letting the snacking get in my way. Today I will make some healthy snacks and focus more on the food temptations that have lead me off my path to my weight loss goals. I am only weighing once a week now (huge step for me) and measuring once a month. I am aiming for the 2 pounds per week for now and then be happy with one pound, any weight loss is better than a gain, even a stay is progress! I do want to get to goal weight by the end of this year and really need to focus on being happy with how much better I feel and how far I have come. This was definitely a Pacific Coast Highway kind of a year and this year I am hoping for I-90 year of just cruising towards goal. Most of my curves in the road have been because I have taken my eye off the road and in lots of cases just celebrated my weight loss a little too much! I know I can celebrate and lose at the same time so lets get on this next stage of my road trip and try to stay off those windy roads as much as possible!
