Where do I start...

Thursday, January 07, 2010

I gained so much weight since the beginning of November. I'm not sure what was going through my mind, if it was depression or what it was but I put so much of my weight back on. I always set New Year's resolutions and of course then never come to past. I thought this year I would set New Year's goals. After that decision, I thought where do I start. Decision is to take a day at a time. Baby steps in both cleaning up the eating, getting the water in, and working at getting exercise back into my daily life. That being said, I went to the grocery store and bought fresh fruit and fresh veggies.

Today was my first good day since I don't know when. I have stayed within calories and had no sugar. I could say it was easy but there were some anxious moments for me. I plan on working some exercise into tomorrow.

    Joy...I've neglected myself for the past YEAR and so am also re-starting to lose the weight I've re-gained .....We both know what it takes! Beating ourselves up about isn't the answer....taking ACTION is! Here's to a great year ahead...let's do it!!!! emoticon

    My favorite saying is: It doesn't matter how many times you fall down, only how many times you get up. I've add "and how fast".

    In the past, it could take months. Now I can get back up in days or hours. You can too.

    Take it one day at a time, one step at a time. Your going to fall short, but it's getting back up that counts. Hang in there and never give up.

    It's a great idea to start small and add in more tasks as you see success. I'm working on writing my goals as well. :-)

    Starting is always the hardest part. Even though it may be a rough road the reward at the end is worth the work.

    Good luck to you and keep going.
