If Nothing Changes, Nothing Changes

Sunday, July 9
Finally, the added weight gain that ballooned on my body after I thought I could eat a little bit of cheese (my trigger, one of many) is finally gone, and at 210 lbs. I know I still have a long way to go but for now I am grateful to be in the "New Territory."
You see, I haven't been down to 210 since 2005. This weight is a new location on the scale, and unless I protect it with the right thinking, I'm going to revert to the old behaviors that shot my weight up to my high of 283. But if I remember that for today, I have a plan. I know what to do, I have my tools, my support system, my SparkPeople, my motivational cards and journal.
But the most important thing is the simplest...yet often the hardest for me. I must remember that I'm doing this because I love myself enough to care. I deserve to be as healthy and fit as possible. And if I forget, I know those angels on SP will help me out. Isn't that wonderful?

    Beautiful blog; such a deep truth,I want to remember it too:
    "But the most important thing is the simplest...yet often the hardest for me. I must remember that I'm doing this because I love myself enough to care. I deserve to be as healthy and fit as possible"
    Together with another one of your truths"just a little bit won't hurt"
    Thank you for putting it so clearly and bravo for your first 30 lb loss.
    And all the best for the next 30!
