Back on the Wagon

Well I did it again… I couch slouched and gained almost all the weight I lost last year back. I hopped off the wagon for so many reasons.

  1. I was down to a size 8 and I looked amazing, but I still wasn’t at my goal and I was getting discouraged.
  2. I went to my 20 year reunion. Hearing over and over that I looked the same as I did in high school made me feel like I got close enough to my goal to quit. What else was there to look forward to?
  3. I did not transition into a healthy lifestyle once I let go of the program.
  4. Business picked up dramatically and I spent most of my time working.
  5. Instead of taking a few minutes out of my day to plan my meals, I just grabbed whatever was convenient at the time. As a good friend reminded me once; A failure to plan is a plan for failure. Yes, yes it is…
  6. We moved from Oregon to Florida.
  7. I got depressed.
  8. I couldn’t fit in my jeans anymore and got more depressed.

I feel like I’m back where I started, and in a way, I am. I stopped taking responsibility for myself. I let myself go. So I’m getting back on the wagon again. I know I can do it right this time.

This is Day 1. I’m tired and hungry. It might help if I get my scale back from the shop (where we make Dapper Snappers) so I can at least see some progress in the first week.

Wish me luck! Send prayers my way!

So who wants to join me???

    Happy to hear you’re back on the wagon! YOU GO GIRL!

    Healthy living is made a LOT easier in Florida where the weather is nice most of the year, no? Short walks help clear the head from work and stress.

    Good luck!
