Default Facing the Facts

Here's the real deal. The new 30 day challenge started 20 days ago. Since then I have earned some points, but most of them being water and exercise. I have managed to gain 4 lbs since then. I feel like saying "How's that working for you?" to myself. I need a swift kick in that pants. I DO NOT want to gain back evey hard earned pound I lost, and baby, I am on my way!!

So today, I am starting over AGAIN. But I knew the first thing I had to do was get out here and get real (as Dr. Phil would say!). I know how to do this. I will do this. I am doing this.

It's 12:00 and so far I have managed to eat a healthy breakfast and lunch. Now to continue and do this for another...lifetime.

The Secret is: CONSISTENCY

We're here for ya. Through the good times and the bad times. Wait....I sound like a sappy love song......but it's true. I too, have not been feeling myself lately. You can tell by the challenge lately. I'm getting quiet a few 0's. I don't know where my motivation went. But I WANT IT BACK! . There's alot going on in this tiny little head of mine, and I need to make my weight #1. I keep telling myself that once I get through the "Fall Cleaning" (I've got 20 boxes of kids clothes to take to storage today) I'll get back into the groove of things. I does feel good to FINALLY get Lucas' room clean. It was 80% storage and 20% room, but my baby girl needs to move into the crib and need to move into the toddler bed, so I had to make room. Have alot more to do, and hoping to get back onthe wagon today and try to deal w/ it all at the same time, because is not a routine. They is ALWAYS gonna be something that's gonna come up.

Sandi I know how you feel, I was in a slump (is that a word or did I make it up?) up until a week ago. Then I went to the bariatric clinic and everything seems to have clicked into place since then. I have learned that if I overeat one meal what's the big deal, I had 2 good days before that. One meal did not make me fat, one piece of pizza did not make me fat, one hamburger did not make me fat. Amazing how it took me 10 years to develop this attitude, I was always a either 100% on or 100% off kinda person no middle of the road and realistically I can not live my life that way. Don't know who slapped that knowledge in my head but I thank God it happened.

Hey, I was gonna say take it "one day at a time" thinking I was soo original and Snowball beats me with "one minute at a time!
Oh well. I feel for you. I am kind of in the same boat. I have been losing and gaining the same few pounds over and over for the past month. I am so over it. It feels better getting it off your chest though.
take care chickie!!

Sandi, you can do this, and you have been keeping up with your water and exercise. Don't just peek in the wagon, jump back in with both feet. You can do this.

One minute at a time.. one pound at a time... you can do this! You've succeeded before.

Perhaps you should try and figure out what you are afraid of? I figured out I was afraid of having to do this every day for the rest of my life - just too much work! My leader had some helpful advice, pretty funny too. She said "are you going to comb your hair every day for the rest of your life? Are you going to brush your teeth every day for the rest of your life? are you going to eat at least one meal every day for the rest of your life? If those things are not overwhelming you, then eating healthy every day for the rest of your life shouldn't either."

I love my WW leader!

Sandi - perhaps you need to put something into this, like money? or going to the meetings again? Or having a bet with your hubby that he'll give you $10 for every pound you lose but you have to give him $20 for every pound you gain? Just some ideas I've heard.
