My last visit to this site was Nov. 17 of last year. At that time, I was at 150 lbs. and working toward my goal of 140 lbs. In November, I started allowing life's worries to get the best of me and I started completely going off my plan. The result is an 8 pound gain in about 4 months and I am certainly not happy with that So, I've picked myself up, dusted myself off, and I'm ready to get losing again.
What did I learn from the last few months? That even after losing 22 pounds and being very happy about it, that I am still very apt to go back to my old bad eating habits if I lose my focus. A little depression, a little bad luck,
financial concerns, sadness over the death of a loved one ... all of these things triggered (and still do) my overeating.
The funny thing is that I really don't think I enjoyed eating all that bad food. I ate it because I thought it would make things better. It doesn't. It never does, and it never will. What makes me happier is knowing that I am making the right choices in all areas of my life, including eating right.
So here I go again. This time I'm going all the way down. This site is a HUGE help to me.
Thanks for listening everyone.
