Regaining What I've Lost
So, I weighed in this morning...like I promised I would. I've done some damage, to say the least. The good news is that it could have been worse...also, it can be "fixed." I gained 6.2 lbs in August because I didn't try, because I lost my focus, because I let the stress get to me, because I half gave up, because because because. Bottom line is, it's my fault, I did it to myself and now I have to remedy it. It really sucks because it took me 2 months to lose that 6 lbs, but only 1 month to gain it back. Ugh. I have to make myself stick to my food plans and I have to do my best to make my daily workouts happen. I just have to. If I want to succeed, I don't have a choice. I have to say "no" to free food. I really don't understand my "inability" to say no when offered free food. I mean, well, I guess I kind of understand it, but I don't understand why I can't have the confidence to just say "no, I don't need it but thank you for offering." I don't say no because I don't want to offend the person offering the food, but really, they would understand and just ask someone else. It's a mental block that I need to work myself thru. So, wish me luck as I buckle down and try to regain what I have lost and get back on track.
