TWO MONTHS LATER.....

Monday, December 03, 2012

Can hardly believe that it's been almost TWO months since my last blog... and not really sure what to say about those two months. I mentioned in another post that I've been "slipping and sliding," but have at least stayed in the same weight range. The problem is that I "feel comfortable" in my new sizes, have gotten many complements, so am finding it's just too too easy to "glide" eating a little of "this" and a little of "that." But I am reminded that "whatever it was" that I thought I wanted was gone within a minute or two and didn't really satisfy as I had thought it would ,,,, just made me want more.... BUT thankful to SP, so thankful, because it has opened my eyes to what is really important if I want to get to goal. AND it has taught me what really does taste the best.... and it ain't junk, nor fast food, nor huge quantities, nor any of that stuff.... that is "hanging around to entice me."

AGAIN.... WHAT IS IMPORTANT TWO MONTHS LATER....

SP, my SP friends, the trackers, my SP friends, my foundation -- and a strong foundation it is!

    Oh, I hear you loud and strong! Same story here. In fact, last winter I wrote a blog about "Slip, slidin' away!" Do you remember that old song? Anyway, let's do our best to just keep on working at it and eventually, we will succeed!! Love, Jeannie

    I have to agree with everyone also. Too easy to slip and slide especially after you have been complimented about how good you are looking or how nice something fits. I seem to lose focus then instead of pounds. I think I will start turning a deaf ear to compliments and think of myself the way I used to be. Maybe then I would have that spark and motivation. Thanks Lois, for the shot in the arm! (hugs) Noel

    Everything you've said is also true of me and many others. It seems from time to time I slip up and then finally get back on Track with healthy choices. It's easy to stop focusing and start eating unhealthy things and/or big portions that we can don't need but want. I'm glad your back on track and doing well. You've come a long way Lois so keep moving forward.

    Love,

    Jill

    I went through that recently. I was feeling so happy fitting into smaller clothes, that I stopped focusing on continuing, and thoughts of old habits began to surface. Thankfully, I woke up before too much damage was done and got back on the bandwagon. I had to remember that I am not just eating healthy to lose weight, but to BE healthy. The REAL damage doesn't show up on the scale. It is going on inside. So glad I got turned back around, and you, too.

    ITS SO TRUE WHAT YOU SAY LOIS. I KIND OF FEEL THE SAME, BECAUSE I FEEL SO MUCH BETTER THAN WHEN I STARTED, I KIND OF STALLED. THE TRUTH IS THAT I NEED TO WAKE UP AND ACHIEVE MY JOURNEY. THE SKY IS THE LIMIT.
    THANK YOU DEAR FRIEND
    LOVE LISE
