half way there

Thursday, March 05, 2015

So I haven't been around on sparkpeople for a little while, but I have been checking in on BOBCATGIRL76 everyday. I just love reading her posts and they have inspired me to get my act together.

I'm a married lady now who has also made her way back up to 190 lbs. No bueno. I'm glad I'm not inching close to the 200's though. Being at 190 puts me at 30 lbs away from my goal weight of 160. It also means that I've lost close to 30 lbs. I've been stuck in the middle for too long and need to push myself over that hump. I can do this! I've done it before, so here I am taking it back to the basics.

Step one - getting back into tracking my food, measuring and following the serving suggestions, and making healthy choices/alternatives. It all starts with how I fuel my body.

Step two - making exercise a daily routine even if it is just 20 minutes a day. No more being lazy!

Step three - keeping myself accountable and motivated by creating achievable short and long-term goals

Anyways, I hope by pressing the reset button in my mind that I will be able to get back into the swing of things. I miss the success I had been having and know I can achieve it once again. I hope to be making more blogs too so I feel a little more accountable and keep the fire strong!

Thanks for reading, I shall return soon!

    Good first steps to resume your journey. Recognize and celebrate every healthy choice you make. Be enthusiastic about your successes and victories. Be your own cheerleader. You deserve the success you desire.

    You can only hit the Reset button so many times before it crashes. Hopefully it all works out for you. It sucks restarting but you can do it!

    You can do it! I am restarting too (well, about a month ago). We can encourage each other if you'd like.

    The three "steps" you have created and thought out are do-able. I, especially, like your short vs. long term goals. So many times, we create the "finish line" in our minds and when it doesn't happen when WE think it should, we get discouraged and give up. It makes sense to create short term goals to get to that "finish line". Good for you! emoticon
