Biting the Bullet After a Bit of a Setback
Wednesday, August 31, 2011
Okay, so I'm one of those people who weighs herself everyday. And I've zigzagged my way down quite a bit. A bit over 38 pounds to be exact. I don't count fluctuations, everyone goes up and down a bit if you weigh everyday, but as long as I was going in the right direction, it was success from day one.
That was until about 2 months ago. I "plateaued" last year. Of course, having guests, enjoying more cocktails and food just might have had something do do with that "plateau". But I managed to ride it out and even lost about 2 or 3 pounds since last summer. Then, 2 months ago, I don't know what happened. I had been sick, stopped exercising, and even stopped journaling my food all the time. BIG MISTAKE.
So this morning, I bit the bullet and reset my weight to today's weight, up about 6 1/2 pounds. Happily I've already lost one so it's reset JUST a bit lower than it would have been two days ago. While I was at it I reset my goal for 5 pounds less than it had been.
I'm hoping this is the "shot in the arm" I need. The motivation that I had for so long. I'm resolved to up my exercise,
, journal EVERYTHING ( back to I can have anything and everything I want, but I MUST admit it), and getting back on track to lose that unhealthy weight, get stronger, and be happier.
Can I do it? You bet I can!!!
