Tuesday, August 28, 2012

I cannot believe it has been 4 months since I have logged in to Sparkpeople. Time has just flown by.

In the spirit of starting over I am being honest with myself and I have no excuse for not logging in. Sure when I was camping I had no Wifi but when I was home I just didn't.

I have tried for a few weeks now to log in but I knew that when I did I was admitting that I had slipped and fell back in to an old pattern.
Today I finally built up the courage and here I am.

I accept that have slipped.
I accept that I will have to change my ways again.
I accept that I am human and make mistakes.
I accept that today I will start again.

I hope everyone had a great summer and I look forward to seeing you all online.

    Welcome back dizzy and murph! wonderful to see you both!

    Perhaps you changed too many of your favorite foods hon. Try to keep your foods, that you really like and lighten them up in some way by changing something in it or by portion control. This way you are less likely to feel deprived. And you will more likely stay on track easier too.

    Good luck on coming back and looking after yourself

    Welcome back sweetheart,

    We have all been there - and those that say they havn't arn't being honest with themselves - don't beat yourself up too much. You have found your way back, that is what matters. and it takes courage to admit when you have slipped, and strength of character to step foward and admit it - be proud of yourself for that.

    You know what you have to do to put yourself back on an even keel, we will all be here to support you in your efforts - just reach out, and you will see. Don't push yourself too hard, sit down firstly and make yourself a plan - steady does it, remember that old story about the tortoise and the hare - slow and sure is the secret to a steady weight loss, and keeping it off.

    Remember if it's going to work it has to be realistic - I found that allowing myself a cheat meal sorted me out - some people have a cheat day - whatever it takes to make you feel happy with yourself and your healthy weight loss plan.

    I weigh in every Friday at my local Health Centre ( makes me more accountable than doing it at home) - and on Friday evening I have my cheat meal - maybe a curry or fish and chips, whatever I fancy - I look forward to it all week - I REALLY ENJOY IT - and I don't feel guilty about it, because it s part of my plan, and my lifestyle. Then I am careful about my food choices for the next 6 days - try it sweetheart, it may solve your problem of falling off the wagon because of temptations - It works for me, and lots of others I know.

    Again, it's nice to see you back.

    Glad to see you back here, too!
