A loss is a bonus...but not gaining is the more important goal.

Thursday, March 14, 2013

I haven’t felt well in months and have been beating myself up over gaining 10 pounds…So I decided to get online last night and go to my “weight loss forum” for some support and I was checking my journal  and I came to realize that I have maintained a 50lb weight loss for a year this week.

 On 3/18/2012 I hit my 50 pound goal and on 3/18/2013… I will still have them gone!

 That is a big deal. I should be proud instead of hating myself for gaining 10 out of my original 60 back. Would I like to lose more…of course…and I am in process of getting my health, energy and mojo back… so I know I will!

 I just need to focus on the positives and stop the listening to naysayers and saboteurs….because I beat the odds…I didn’t gain my weight back plus 10% like statistics say 90% of people who lose large amounts of weight do in the first year. I had a small detour in a life time journey…and I am ok with that!

    I'm right there with you! I have had my weight off for about 2 years now. I joined SP in 2010 and lost about 60 lbs. I have, since that time, gained and lost the same 7 pounds! I am hoping by recommitting, I can get it off and just stay at my goal weight. But I think I will always struggle with the last few pounds...

    On a positive note, just like you, I am overjoyed that I haven't put all that weight back on plus more. I really credit SP and the tools that this site has to help you kick yourself back into gear!
