Easier than I thought

Tuesday, December 30, 2008

Falling off the wagon was easier than I thought. Though, I think I jumped off on my own, I didn't quite 'fall', that implies I wasn't in control. I was in full control of every poor choice I made. The guilt seemed to make me eat more, I missed TOPS meetings, I became who I was and not who I want to be. Thank goodness the holidays are followed by the renewed spirit the New Year brings. And thank goodness I still weigh daily! I think doing so helped me mitigate my damages. Instead of losing 6-10 pounds this month, I expect to only lose one or two. I am walking away from this month with my head hung low and ashamed. PITY PARTY for me! Party is officially over and it's time to get back to work.

    Happy New Year!
    How have you been doing this week?
    I just got on the wagon starting Jan 1st. So far exercising each day and staying under 1600 calories.
    I am trying toremind myself on those days when I just want to go back to old habits, How wonderful I feel when I excercise and eat right.
    By your past success I am sure you are off and running again.
    Take care.

    Hey girl,

    It is time to stop the pity party. Goodness knows I was having one myself. You would think that after 4 years of riding the train I would figure out that I always make a stop around the holidays. There is nothing wrong with that. The only time it becomes an issue is when you allow a stop to become your destination when you still have other stops to make. I hope I am making sense. All I am trying to say is that you will have set backs in this adventure. It is called LIFE! So pick yourself up, dust yourself off and hop back on the wagon. Your worth it!

    Hey you've just got to keep on truckin'. It doesn't matter how small the steps are as long as you don't give up and just keep at it! Two pounds is still two whole pounds. Be proud of EVERY success.
