Yikes.....been away way too long.

Thursday, December 10, 2009

Back at it again......yup that is me always in a constant fight to lose weight and stop smoking. Looking back I seem to have patterns. I do well for a period of time (actually becoming almost obcessive about it) then I fall off the wagon and I totally give up. Like "Ok, I messed up....I'm done, not worth it to keep doing it where I already screwed up. I might as well enjoy the bad eating for awhile then get back to it." The problem is the length of time I dwell in my "mess up's" end up going longer and longer.....really reversing all the positive habits I built as well as all the weight coming back (and with friends).

I need to learn you are going to have a bad day once in awhile but not feel I have to throw in the towel "because I messed everything up". I need to be able to step back take a breath and forgive myself and move on from that point........not dive in deeper. I seem to be getting better at that....but it is a conscious effort. I find I talk to myself alot. Like trying to reason with an addict.

I will try to be more forgiving of myself.

    "good times" with intervals of "bad times" is not so bad. As long as during the "bad times" you do not go backwards past your starting points
