New Beginnings

Thursday, January 15, 2009

I need to restart. Sad truth is that I have lost some hard-earned ground. I sailed through Thanksgiving and Christmas of 2008 with barely an extra calorie. Then a combination of things happened, I lost focus, and before I knew it...eight pounds are back on my body! Yikes! It happened so fast. I had stopped logging my daily food intake. "In order to take a break," I told myself. I allowed myself to eat the much craved chocolate chip cookies, homemade sitting on the counter. But my daily diet is now more cookies than anything else! I thought I would get tired of them, but I think I have discovered that is an experiment I can't afford to keep trying anymore. I have to turn the tides and force myself to take some control...because I want a healthier life, I want to feel better, I want that pain in my hip that had gone away and now come back to go away again....FOREVER! I need any support you can toss my way...much appreciated!!

THANKS A BUNCH! :) Jill

    Jill, I also gained over the holidays. I had to throw out my bad attitude into the town dump. ;-) You can do it, if you want to. If you don't want to, you shouldn't feel bad about it, because you are who you are, no matter what you weigh, and you deserve to feel good about yourself. But if you do want to reduce, then help yourself do it, because you deserve to feel good about yourself. :)

    You'll be leaving 240-ville soon, with your New Attitude. And you know you have a furnished place waiting in 230-ville, as soon as you get there.

    I'm glad you stopped the gaining now. Instead of regretting some bad decisions, let's focus on positive things. Take some deep breaths, close your eyes, and visualize yourself the way you want to look. Kiss and hug yourself. emoticon

    Jill, get right back up and start over sometimes it happens but I know you can do it start out with babysteps and drink your water when you feel the need to eat. eat veggies instead of those cookies or fruit. go walking, brush yourself off and get back on track. keep going you have the support here. take care HUGS KAT
