Im not quite sure what has happened to me, but I must stop and refocus immediately! Ive become a little bit relaxed and this does not need to happen.So, as of right now, I am re-commiting myself to do Rockin Robins famous words: "Do what works for you, then keep on doing it".

I re-commit to:

Use Fitday.com every day for all foods eaten!
Start cooking actual meals instead of snacking for a meal!
Start making the weeks lunches on the weekend!
Exercise every day whether its humid or not!
Drink at least two 16.9 oz water per day!
Stop snacking on junk food period!:devil:
Do not buy any more cereal, peanut butter, or low carb bread cause they are binge foods, big time!
Slow down on the boiled eggs with the yolks, I can easily eat 10 a day if I dont watch it...I know, I know!!:o:o

I CAN DO IT!

Does anybody else feel the need to re-commit?????
If so, post away!:D

I know what you mean... I've been feeling the need to refocus as well.

I am working on increasing my water intake again... and I really need to eat more lean protein and veggies, rather than whole grains and fruit.

You go girl! I think everyone needs to recommit every once in a while. I know I did after my surgery and then my trip! You can do this my friend :)

Today is my first day back here in a long time. I ate right yesterday, walked this morning, am eating right today. Why did I stop? Why did I let myself gain SO much weight back? There's always stress, life, etc., but did gaining the weight back make any of that better? NOPE!

So, starting yesterday...

Minimal white stuff
6 fruits and veggies per day
No junk
Walk or jog or bike everyday
Plan meals and snacks
Count the darn calories

Lost over 60 pounds doing that. Why did I stop???

I fell off the wagon big time this weekend. Well maybe not, but it feels like it and that is what matters. I am going to the grocery this afternoon and stock up on yummy on plan food. You can do it Mug! We all can.

I have been trying to recommit and get going again for awhile now, but am really struggling. There is just so much stress right now, like major stress coming from every direction imaginable! I am perfect and feel good all day long, then fall into major binge mode in the evening when the kids are asleep and it's just me and my thoughts.

I know what got me past that in the past and I need to do it again. So, starting right this very second I recommit myself to the following...

1. No eating after 6PM, no matter what.
2. At least 4 bottles water daily.
3. Count every single calorie and stay under daily/weekly limit.

I am okay with exercise, that is about all I have been managing to do right these days :(

I agree, most of us have to do this. I find myself doing it on a somewhat weekly basis.

I realize that I am a carb addict, I don't eat nearly enough protein. When my protein consumption is where it should be then I don't crave the carbs. So, I often have to commit to eating more protein and I'm working on keeping easy sources around. Protein drinks, bars, etc.

It's really about recomitting to a new lifestyle that I know I can live with and not falling back into old habits.

Go MUG Go! You can do this!!!! :carrot:

I haven't slacked off in every area, but I have noticed a slight relaxation with my food plan. Weekends cannot send me off plan. AND I can't justify it because my workouts have been so good. It all works together! So, I'm with you. I'm keeping a more strict accounting of my calories.

We all can do this!

So how is everyone doing? I've stayed on plan - I think in large part because I'm coming here again. DH and I took the bikes to Omaha yesterday and rode across the pedestrian bridge and tried a bunch of new trails. It was such a beautiful day! Took him to a Greek restaurant and introduced him to chicken gyros. It was so much fun!

What a timely thread! I, too, have found myself faltering the last few days.

I recommit to:
Exercising every morning - not putting it off until "later"
Planning my meals.
Staying away from the peanut butter and ww bread (my personal binge triggers).
Getting snacks ready to go in the fridge so I can grab as needed
Getting at least 64 oz. of water daily
Weighing once a week

I need to recommit in a big way. I have known it for about a week now but it seems like something isn't right. I don't know why I am faltering so bad right now. Need to do some inventory on the inside. Need to get er done!

Jeez, Mug, maybe you should be a little harder on yourself. :-) Maybe get one of those flogging things like the strange man in the DaVinci Code has. You know - the albino monk guy?

Or maybe just start again today. Eat clean. Exercise. Re-focus.

Or go with the flogging. :-)

I guess this is more just a commit, not a recommit. today I am cleaning out the junk in the kitchen and boy is there a lot of it. goodbye to the cookies and the chips and making sure there is room for a lot of veggies in the fridge. you are starting with a clean slate today mug, make sure you eat good things today while you think about what happened. the thinking is importatn but maybe the doing the right thing is more important faster?

I always seem to slip in the summer--the doldrums (or the heat and ice cream and too hot to exercise.......etc) so I'm ramping it up again.

I hear you all! I am trying to recommit too. We can all work on this together! Heck, August is almost outta here and September is a whole new ballgame! :carrot:
We can use this last week of August to get back on track for a successful September!
