I may have celebrated to soon

Wednesday, September 05, 2007

On August 14th I was so excited bc I had gotten below 190. Well, in three weeks, I managed to put on 6 pounds. I haven't exercised and I've eaten everything in sight. I knew what I was doing. I was getting cocky. I didn't calculate the fact that I wouldn't have time to exercise. I fell into my old habits.

But, here is what I'm doing different. I'm not staying down. I will get below 190 again and I will get to my next goal.

I've decided this time around, I'm going to let my clothes do the talking. I'm currently wearing a size 16 and I really like the way that feels. Especially since I was wearing 20's and 22's. My 16's are snug this week. I've got to make them more comfortable. I've already donated my 18's and I'm not going back!!! I want my next purchase to be a size 14.

The only way this is going to happen is if I get back on Sparkpeople. It is here that I have had my success. It is bc of the teachings, encouragement and friends I receive and have made that I've gotten as far as I have.

I'm coming back. I've had 3 weeks of slacking off - I'M DONE!

    I told you that you are inspiring. Way to get back on the horse!!!
    I think you look soooo amazing. How wonderful. You are doing great. Everyone has pitfalls...we work through them...sometimes it takes a little time (at least that is what I tell myself.)

    Aha, so that's what you've been up to! LOL Girl, you will get into that 14 do you hear what I'm saying? And if I keep slacking, you'll be handing me your 14s when you go out for you 12s. You look great, Vero. Look where you've come from and don't let those 6 lbs get you down! You are a champion! Every now and then the old self will attempt to creep their way in... you just tell them to "talk to the hand" because you're not putting up with that foolishness! I know you're going to make it! I know it. You are a great encouragement to me!
    (keep up the good work)

    You go girl! You look amazing, you have come so far; you will get to where you are going! There will always be times that are more difficult then others but overcoming those times by stepping back as you have & take notice of them; will get you through!

    I am glad you have took a stand against the gain and taking you life back. I know for myself the food tracking has been key for me, especially when I have made poor choices. Glad to read that you getting back on track to your lifestyle goal.

    It is good to have you back. When we reach goals it is hard not to go back to our bad habits, we just have to remember that this is a life change and we will always have to watch what we eat.

    Hello and thanks for checking in.
    1. Great picture on the carousel.
    2. Now you know what you did and you know not to do it. Problem solved!
    3. Keep going. You really are doing very well!

    Get back to the nutrition tracker so you will know what you are doing. It is helping me to think. I have gained weight back after a big success. i think it has to do with fear of sustaining the habits. I struggle with keeping my life style changes. My clothes are fitting better. Isn't that a great feeling? No binding! You can do it. We will soon be busy with University. Let's Go.

    You go, girl! (As I just finished a Philly Cheesesteak from the lunch truck). Back to your running and eating right! That photo from SF looks fabulous, by the way. I'm proud of you, and appreciate the encouragement I get from you!
