Now I've done it!

Wednesday, June 10, 2009

OK. I finally did it. I finally put my weight loss ticker back up. I took it down 'way back in November, when (a mere 4 lbs. from my goal) I started gaining it back, bit by bit. I was embarrassed that I couldn't keep the weight off, but now I'm fessing up. I'm nearly back to where I started over a year ago. Putting it back up represents a new commitment to myself and to my goals. That's a really good step to take. Wish me luck!

    I'm sure this was a tough thing to do, but probably the best step at making the new commitment to positive changes. We all need to let go of the failures and look at making each moment forward count. You know you can and will do this! Best of luck with your "new beginning".... hope you will share your journey with us.

    Now that you've fessed up it will probably come off quicker. I know, as a former 4th grade teacher, that the end of the school year has all sorts of treats and presents. They all add up. Good luck on heading down again -- let's make this a great summer.

    emoticon I have done the yo yo thing once or twice myself! It just means your human. I gain weight when I get stressed out. Life as been a roller coaster ride the last five or six years, like you I would loose it get stressed out and gain it back. Don't give up you can do it! That's what I keep telling myself too! I'm learning to chill out about it--I take each day and try to make healthy choices! That keeps the stress down--if I screw up I shake it off and try to do better the next day--I'm through with the guilt and beating myself up--I'm learning to be my own best friend--only kind and gentle self talk allowed!

    I hope you reach all of your goals! Good Luck! emoticon
