Still Struggling

I wish I could say that I’ve gotten myself back on track but the truth is it really hasn’t happened yet. I’ve definitely made some steps in the right direction – I’ve gotten my water intake back up, along with my veggie intake and my workout time. However I can tell that I’m not mentally on track yet.

Not too long ago I felt calm and satisfied with my weight loss plan. I was no longer struggling with cutting out desserts or watching what I ate. But then I let myself slip. I think I got too comfortable and confident in my success and subconsciously began to think I didn’t need to be as strict anymore. But nothing could be further from the truth.

I’m sitting here writing this post because I’m desperately craving fresh-baked cookies. I’ve had a very long, exhausting day. I really don’t want to do anything right now, but I would be willing to go through the entire baking process to feed this craving. So I’m falling back on my good old blog to keep myself accountable. I WILL NOT GIVE IN. I know now, more than ever, that it’s my mental outlook that has helped me lose the weight I have. So this is my first step to getting that piece back.

  • Howdy. I’m on a similar journey to lose weight and get healthy, and I also struggle getting back on track after I’ve failed my diet plans. This happened to me (again) last week. It was brutal getting my act together, and ended up taking 7 days before I was able to flip back to doing the healthy habits I had built into my life. Anyway, keep posting and keep being honest with yourself. I’ve found this helpful for me with staying motivated and more importantly, getting back in the groove. I’m sending willpower vibes your way. This will get easier again once you have a couple of successful days under your belt.

    • Thanks for sharing and for the words of encouragement! And good for you for getting back on track. ๐Ÿ™‚ I agree that continuing to post here is important. It’s such a great accountability tool and I can practically line up my decline in my success with the decline in my postings. I appreciate the support. ๐Ÿ™‚
