Default Starting over tomorrow...

Due to a million reasons (excuses) I've been off program since the week before Christmas and have been putting off getting back on for long enough! Tomorrow is the day.

I've done pretty well at keeping the weight gain to a minimum, only about 4 lbs., but I'm not getting any closer to my goal by doing this.

I read this blog on a regular basis, but I don't post very often. You all are so inspirational, so I just figured that by writing it down, I would do it!

Looking forward to getting back on my journey!

Good decision. While you're writing, you should start writing down the reasons you want to do this. How does the extra weight make you feel? If you start struggling and consider going off track again, read what you wrote to motivate you to stay the course.

You did well to basically maintain, so that tells you once the weight is off you can keep it off. I did your same thing, but put 20 (eek!) back on. It is a struggle to restart but we're here for you. I seem to be restarting regularly (not sure why I'm struggling so much) but like you, willing to give it a go. Let's "get 'er dun!"

This is very true -- my coach has me asking myself similar things to this and to bring my reasons to WI this week really opens your eyes!

I just got back on the wagon on Jan 16th. So, you can do it too. Just remember the first few day/week are the hardest. Hang in there and don't give in - no matter what! After that things are much smoother. So, just tell yourself to get thru that first week. We are all behind you Jen

I did not take such a long break but have eaten poorly this last week, I don't know if it was my aunts surgery or just fearing hitting goal. Who cares those are all excuses I am making. I still exercised everyday but today I just want a break. So I am right there with u, tomorrow back to eating healthy.

I am back on as of this morning. Took a long break and gained. I am so not cured - never will be. I have started working out and won't give that up because I feel so much better, but I am getting back to IP basics. Never give up!!!!

Best of luck, you can do this. Awesome job not gaining as much as you could have. Remember the first week will be tough but after that you know you can get to your goal. Don't be discouraged if your first WI isn't what you expect, I always gave up because it wasn't as high as I know it could have been but it sounds like you probably ate healthier while in hiatus than you did before you started IP.

My day went pretty well....I am feeling it a little, but not nearly as bad as the first time around. Maybe it's just because I knew what to expect.

I sooo appreciate all the encouraging words! :-)

4lbs "regain"? It's most likely water, primarily.

Sounds like you did a great job maintaining which for most people is at least as difficult as losing the fat in the first place.
