Well I sorta strayed off the path, but it could have been worse. Won't go into details but there was chocolate and buttermilk biscuits involved. So today is another day and I am back at it.I am going to do this, just have to tell myself that about a thousand times,
With you there! Sometimes I start the day with the best intentions and just trip up by the late afternoon/early evening but I have found that I can re-motivate myself by doing a bit of exercise to kind of counterbalance whatever it was I tripped up on.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not a gym freak (far from it!) but maybe just a walk or a "ride" on my exercise horse for 30mins whilst watching TV! OK, the day is not a resounding success but it's not been that big a fall of the wagon either....
thanks, it is nice to know I am not alone. Weighed in finally this AM and although I did expect a weight gain it was not as bad as I thought it would be so I am at it again , day by day.
My name is Lee
I need to me more proactive in my health this year.
I just joine this site as a friend of mine likes it alot. I turned 50 in May. I have packed on 30 pounds in ten years. I hate it. I have also started menopause which doesn't help.
I weighed myself today for the first time in 3 months. What a wake up call!!!
My activity level is not good,as I have developed mobility limitations in the last 5 years
Look forward to meeting friends and learning from people who are on their own weight loss journey to inspire each other,
you have company! i had a great week last week...until the weekend...ugh
but it's a new week and a new start. been there, done that lots of times before, but i know i will be where i want to be if i just stay focused on the goal. i keep asking myself why i let it happen every winter and then struggle for a few months to fix it?! oh well...
and also btw...chocolate shouldn't have to count in our calorie total!!! lol
I too have fallen off the wagon. Its funny you put it that way because I use that phrase all the time. Now I say Im on the wagon. I joined a couple of weeks ago, I guess I should say I rejoined. I lost 5 lbs so far and 25 to go. Don't feel bad just make today a new day. If you have a bad day just make the next day a new start. :)
I am just getting back on the wagon, too! I think we all fall down occasionally, and if we just remember that now is a new moment that we can make a good cnoice in, that helps (at least it helps me--otherwise I tend to beat myself over the head about it, which is not a good thing.
i am just getting started again. I had lost 13 lbs last year, but then gained 7 back, which that was my latest wake up call! Now i am determined to DO THIS!
Good for you. I find for me doing the food log is a real motivation .
