Getting back on the horse

Thursday, January 05, 2012

It's been almost three years since my last blog. Since that time I've fallen off the wagon so many times. At first I felt like starting over again would be a waste of my time. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results. Pretty sure I'm insane because here I go again. I have a better support system now. My friend joined SP and we have agreed to do this together. If we stick with it, her husband has promised that they will take a detour on their next vacation and come visit. I'm very excited and I can't give up. I have a very real and tangible reward to which I'm looking forward.

This is day three and I'm vowing to take it one day at a time. I am also going to try to work really hard at not beating myself up. My goal is to see the numbers on the scale go down but more importantly than that, I want to feel better and be healthy. So, one day at a time and one pound at a time. I can do this. I know I can!

    Welcome back to SP & don't beat yourself up. You aren't insane - you are determined!!! Me too! I'm too stubborn to give up, that's why!

    Went to see my doctor a couple weeks ago. I'm down 20 pounds or so in two years. How slow is that? But it's going in the right direction. I'm eating healthy following a combination of the DASH and Eat To Live "diets" meaning lots of produce, fresh & raw when possible, low sodium, whole grains and higher proteins. I don't watch my portions much at all anymore and let my appetite by my guide. At first it was scary but now I now that when my body gets real nutrition, I don't crave the junk quite so much. I drink lots of water, exercise when I can but I don't make myself crazy anymore. emoticon

    I know you can do this, too. Have a great New Year & here's to a new beginning!
