Last week I lost about 2 lbs and was so happy. This week I gained that back and a bit more. Why didn't I just relax and try and add a bit more to my losses. Why did I self sabotage when I know what to do.? Does anyone else do this? Was I deprived of food in another life? Oh well I will journey on.........
For the sake of my health if nothing else as I am 63 on Canada Day. So I will.....
1. Try a new recipe
2. Walk a little during lunch hour
3.Prepare lots of veggies ahead of time.
4. Write down what I eat.

    I did the same last couple of weeks. lost 2 and added 2! It was infuriating!!! Had visitors for a week and wedding anniversary so I had multiple desserts and scrumptious creamy Italian foods. Just keeping the calorie count is not enough... :(

    Many of us struggle with yo yo dieting. Our bodies often bounce up and down naturally and that can frustrate us. If you look at those ups as failures, it's easy to give up. If you recognize that they are a normal part of losing, you are more likely to stick with it.

    I ping pong even when I stay on program. I am early on so hoping my body is just trying to figure out wha the heck is going on. Just stick with it and keep pressing.

    I struggle with self sabotage (sometimes). My counselor said at times many feel they are unworthy of success so they sabotage themselves not only in weight loss but other aspects of life. Cheer up! You caught yourself and know what to do! 💪
