Starting Over at 203 pounds

Tuesday, February 28, 2012

Yes, it's true, I am back to 203. Oddly, although I know the weight has to come back off, I don't hate myself. It just is what it is.

The reason I gave all those months ago to go off my plan was I got tired of fighting. I did a self-check every now and again between then and now, asking myself if I wanted to stop overeating and go back on my plan, and the answer was no. Again, it was what it was, no excuses.

Something clicked a few days ago, and NOW I am ready. It feels safe to be here again.

It's so neat to see all the same friendly folks on my activity feed. It's good to be back...

    I'm very happy to see you back! emoticon

    I've hit that "Restart" button a few times (++) in my journey - and, you're right, "It just is what it is". Nothing more, nothing less.
    Wonderful to see you again!

    Peace, love & happiness to you and yours,

    Welcome back. I got off track the last 2/3 of last year and am still working on getting it back off. Easy to put on, had to get back off. LOL. I'm glad to see you back and working on it. We can do this!

    I love your attitude.... plain and simple. No excuses. No self-loathing. I love your freshness and not trying to fight against yourself.

    Knowing you are ready is so amazing. Pushing finally feels like a strong and focused effort, not a whining struggle against your own self-set traps.

    Welcome back, I'm just now getting back on top myself. There is so much to catch up on!

    love you so, Maud

    woo hoo!! It is good to see you! I had to take about 6 months or so off too but it was so good coming back. I gained some back and lost a lot of my physical ability too. But like you said it is what it is and we just have to go from here. Stop by spark daily too!! Same small wonderful group of women!!

    Welcome Back!!!!! I've missed you. Starting're not really starting over, you're just continuing on YOUR journey. Sometimes we have to just deal with the bumps in the road. You have such a positive outlook, and I know you will achieve your goal. Namaste, Mary Ann
