Default Confession Time

I spent a year working so hard to lose weight and get into shape. I was so proud of myself and I felt so good physically and emotionally. Lately, I have really fallen off the wagon and I am so disappointed in myself.
I have gained back 5 lbs and it made me cry to change my siggy to reflect my actual weight this morning. I have continued my daily exercise but my food has really been bad, obviously since I have gained 5 lbs in about a month and a half. Work has gotten stressful, life has gotten busy and oh so stressful and I just fell apart.
Everyday I was telling myself, today will be better, I will visit 3fatchicks because I need all you lovely chicks to stay on track. I would promise I would eat better and get added exercise but none of that happened and now look at all the weight I have gained back.
Even though I am still a few pounds lighter than my initial goal, I have always wanted to lose 10 more lbs and was slowly working on meeting my second goal before I fell off track.
Enough feeling sorry for myself, I am back, I am committed and I have one and a half days of healthy eating under my belt.
Thanks for reading the book, just had to get it off my chest.

Congrats to you for making your confession. And TRIPLE congrats for reining yourself in at only 5 pounds! You know what you need to do--now go and do it!

I agree with the other girls, congrats for getting back on track with only 5 lbs gained! I'm up 8 lbs from last summer and it's definitely a bummer, but I feel so good now that I'm back on track and making healthier choices.

Thin people fluctuate 5 pounds! Just get back on "diet" plan for a couple weeks, and you'll be good. You know what I mean. It won't take long and you'll be back where you want to be!

Life style change started on Jan 13, 2011. I was going to lose 100 pounds by Christmas.
I lost 93 pounds by Oct 1, 2011 and am holding there for now. We'll see what happens.
New goal: To maintain at about 160 Final Goal: To decide if I need to lose more
Just Keep On Keepin' On

Give yourself a pat on the back for not letting your weight get too out of hand before getting back to your healthy habits and 3FC!

Yup, just correct, get back to where you were, and then continue on. This is a normal part of weight maintenance for most peopl - if you overdo it you cut back and reduce down

I gained a good four pounds eating off plan on my birthday (it was lithe only day of the year I didn't log calories or care what I ate) and have lost three of them in five days of concerted dieting. It may not take you much time at all to get back to where you want to be.

5 lbs. is a salty meal for me! Don't let it get you down, get back on track. You'll be back where you were, in no time!
