Default I Really Need to Post This

This is a confession that I need to make so that I can get back on track. I started at 225 and got down to 135 then started maintenance. I thought I looked really great at 135. Well I started my old eating habits again and I am back up to 145. I haven't even exercised in 5 days! It is like a stereotype of diet failure. The thing is I know it doesn't have to be because 145 is a LOT BETTER than 225. I just need to go back to my healthy eating and exercise habits again. I've started the last 5 days with the best of intentions but gone back to eating junk by the end of the day. But today is the day that changes. I am going to respond to this post at the end of the day and let you guys know that I've stuck to it ALL DAY.

Thanks for readying this post. I just needed to tell someone else what was going on so it didn't feel like a terrible, shameful secret.

Glad you posted. It's good that you are making this committment now instead of 50 pounds from now.

It's time to forgive yourself and start planning so you are back in your healthful routine.

It's sometimes a bit hard getting started - but, once you get back into your swing of things - it will be better.

Great Job!! Think about how much easier it will be to fix this now, rather than after 20 or 25 more pounds have been gained. And please keep us posted, I can't wait to hear about your success in getting over this slip up.

Please join us in the Maintainer's Forum. We have several "daily accountability" threads. Start posting, get back on track!

I would recommend Operation 5-10 For Summer.

Daily accountability is key!!!

I don't think this is "diet failure" at all; you didn't gain 80 pounds back, you have gained 10. The important thing is that you are catching it right now and are doing something to address it. You have accomplished so much; there's no question in my mind that you can turn this around now. And you must!

Keep on keeping on; you have a lot of support here!

Cheers,

J

recognizing what's going on early, like after 10 lbs instead of 50, and posting to stay accountable, and forgiving yourself, seem like really important steps, so you seem to be on a good path.

congratualtions on all that hard work you did to lose the weight. and congrats on what you're doing now to get back to your goal. i'm joining the others here in cheering for you!

Hey how is your day going, your update was uplifting and supportive

Here we go rolling into the middle part of the day, I had my snack which I did not like. Steamed shrimp which is low in cal but the ones I bought were imported from overseas, I was afraid to purchase gulf shrimp and they did not have the same flavor as gulf shrimp (insert oil joke here)

Anyhow I hope you are having a positive and uplifitng day, sounds like you are right on track. I will check back in tonight after I get home and settled. We are going out for sushi tonight which will keep me on track
