LA Weight Loss - Help I have fallen off the LA wagon

04-18-2007, 11:30 AM
Hi everyone I need some cyber suppport. I reached goal and have been on maintenance and now I have been straying little bits here & there and I am up 8 lbs from goal. (on my home scale) :(
I am going into the center again today- first time in in 3 weeks. But I think I need a cyber kick in the butt girls.

Calling Barb: GET BACK ON TRACK!!!!! :)

Okay that being said, I think it's great that you're going back to the COD today. The center is what really holds me accountable. You'll do great. We all have minor slip ups. Just remember that a few pounds does not equal the 50 you have lost.

ok ok I felt all of those :D I went to the COD today. According to their scale I am only up 7 lbs. SO my fave counselor and I sat down and figured out a plan of attack. I am back on the weight loss portion of the program. And I am going into the center 3 times a week. After I get back down to goal then we are going to set goals for me and a plan to keep on track. She said that I would set a goal of only allowing myself to go up like 3 lbs & then have a plan when I do go up. So that is good. Thanks for the support.
Back on the wagon!!!!

I loved what Lettie shared with me so much, that I'll quote her here. Reading this puts me in a different frame of mind...

pre- LAWL I saw a woman walk by me who was very trim, fit pretty..... I thought to myself "what I wouldn't give to look like that" then I thought to myself, "what would I give???" when I say to myself "what I wouldn't give....." it implied to myself that I would give anything in the world. But then I realized, I don't have to give that much. I don't have to give my first born, my home, my husband, my soul. Then what do I have to give? I have to give the desire to stick to it. When I realized that I could have it all I have to do is do it, then it became clear. This was not something that was off limits to me. I CAN be fit. It is mine for the taking. It is like Dorthy, the ability to go home was there all along, she just had to believe it herself.

Here is a kick from me: :kickbutt:

After what you've lost so far, 7 pounds is just a drop in the bucket. And if you've been off plan, how much of that is water weight?...You'll be back to goal in no time.

But...:kickbutt:...Here's you're kick in the butt anyway;)

Good for you for biting the bullet and getting back on track. I, too, wish that I hadn't let myself get so out of hand after my last successful loss. 7 pounds will go like lightening....more than that turns into a monumental task. Keep up the good work!

I found yesterday it was easier than I thought to get back on the weight loss mode. I was making excuses to go into the COD when I knew I was up. I 'm not sure why I was hesitant to go back in but it was the best thing. I think that act was like a mental recommitment to the program. My home scale was 178 yesterday and 176 this morning. :D Thanks for the kicks in the butt- no wonder my butt is sore today. ;)

Hooray for you!!! I'm working on a little 9 or 12 pound slip up too......although I have a ways until goal. You do realize that you will never be fat again, right? You caught yourself before things got too far out of control.............WTG!!!! :)
