Is it worth it?

I was moving in the right direction last year. Down almost 70 pounds. Even though I avoided the holiday sweets, my loss slowed in December.
During the first two months of 2020, off-plan eating crept in. There was serious effort to get back to that strong place, but it wasn't consistent long-term.
Weight went up and down. I am pleased that I did not have major regain. Being a yo-yo has been the death of my progress in the 14 years I've been on Spark.

So once again, I'm in re-start mode...or reversing direction to what I was doing before January. The first week can be hard while my mind adjusts to my unwavering resolve.
I am down 6 pounds since the re-start this month.

There have been times the last few evenings when I felt hungry. I ask myself, Is this head hunger or stomach hunger? It's usually head hunger. I distract myself by doing something else to keep busy and move on.

Is it worth the effort? Yes, it is. My health is worth it.
Our bodies are the vehicles we have to do everything else in life. We take these bodies, healthy or unhealthy, with us everywhere we go, 24/7.
