Trying to start over

Saturday, November 28, 2015

I just did a look back and it has been over a year since I was working hard trying to get weight off and life just took some unexpected turns.
It shook me a bit when I saw photos from a year ago and realized I let all that work start to go down hill with me.
I have struggled for 2 months trying to get back onto a plan, trying to just start by at least writing down what I eat, drinking more water but it hasn't really helped. I just sink right back down into a sadness with everything that happens in my life.
So I decided to try to join a group again, get some support and motivation to keep fighting and going and when things get hard just get support.
Not sure where else I can go but here and I hope this time I can succeed like I did before.

    You can, one day at a time. Maybe start with something "small" (and those things are really big!) to give yourself success today. Then success or not, tomorrow is another day. YOU CAN DO THIS!

    You are not alone on restarting. This year has been the worst ever with my husband dying, yet, we must, MUST, continue on to take care of ourselves!

    Good luck. It is great that you are picking yourself back up. We all learn from our mistakes, even it was something you couldn't control in your life.

    It means the world to me.

    Holidays are tough, my weight has been doing a major roller coaster this year. Keep at it, we've got this!

    I figure on this healthy lifestyle journey we ALL hit bumps in the road (heck, I've wandered off the road ENTIRELY before!). The IMPORTANT thing is that you pick yourself back up and continue to head in the right direction. It sounds like that is EXACTLY what you're doing. Know there are lots of us right alongside you, cheering you on!

    I hear ya! I feel the same way! I just started to seriously give this a try again 2 days ago. I'm making small realistic goals that are achievable. I'm checking in on my blog daily to keep me accountable. You can do this... we all can!!! Good luck!!

    We all have been there. Realize when things get hard that you deserve to take care of you! Hugs
