What was I thinking???

******October 12, 2009*******
Ok so this is my official "startover" day. I have been so off track this past month and managed to gain back 6 lbs in that time. I'm ready to start over completely and get back on track.
It's a little...no a LOT scary...how easily I let myself slip back in to eating so terribly. After a year of hardly eating an extra bite without guilt, I have eaten fast food, buffets, ice cream...then more ice cream. What the *beep* was I thinking? I finally get under 200..then so close to the 180's and instead of working harder, I worked hard at almost getting back OVER 200. Bah. Well luckily I didn't and I WILL NOT!
I'm going back to logging every bite, getting the the gym and doing this!

    You are my inspiration.
    Go back and read your blogs, watch your photos. You've become much healthier, won years to your life but you CAN keep up the good work and win even more. You have done exceptionally great but you are still not "there".
    Maybe your body need a little time to adjust to your new under 200 weight, or your mind got bored with the constant diet and exercise watch.
    After you all get out of the tummy bug, please start it all over again. You are still ahead of me with this notch. So come on. emoticon emoticon

    Dunno about you, but when I lost 100+ the first time around, I gained it all back (plus 100 more) because I *wasn't* thinking...
    Management/maintenance is really really hard. The NWCR says you have to keep the weight off for about 5 years before your chances dramatically increase of keeping it off forever. I suspect it takes about 5 years to re-train our brains and habits.
    Good job on catching yourself. Keep up the good fight!

    Musta been the month. There are a lot of us out here! You caught yourself in time. You might need to be a little, and I say little, more lenient with yourself so you don't feel the need to go off so big. (only speaking from experience).

    You can do it! We're behind you!

    I know how easy it is to slide into convenient eating mode, as in not particularly nutritious food .
    Sometimes I lose and gain the same 2 pounds but as long as I can get to 150 or lower and maintain for a bit, I am ok with that. My weight is evenly distributed so I don't look as heavy as I am... but it IS an ongoing battle. Don't give up the fight.

    I commend you for realizing you were getting a little too relaxed and now you are getting back on track. I think that is the biggest thing. Just realizing and accepting it. You know what you need to do and you are willing to get back to those healthy habits that helped you get under 200 lbs. Good luck!
