About Me

Six years ago I decided (age) 42 would be my magic number. I stepped on the scale for the first time in a LONG time. It was a BIG number, it was a SCARY number, but mostly I knew I had to own that number. I lost 40 pounds, leaving the obese category behind. In 2014 I committed myself to working out HARD and a low sugar diet, losing more weight and gaining nice definition. Then life happened, and I lost momentum, gaining some weight back. My goals now are different, and include completing my first ever marathon at age 48. GULP! You can read about the next part of my journey here.

Slippy Slide

Several times in my weight loss journey over the past 6 months, I have reached a point where I feel like I could backslide, in a big way, at any time. This is one of those moments.

I ate pretty generously on Thanksgiving, which I planned for. I did not eat leftovers, however, I got sloppy for several days. Going over on calorie counts, and not balancing my meals and foods properly. Really, I have not had an ideal day since last week.

Time to dig deep, as they say. I have gotten past these moments before.

I haaatte it when that happens. It's hard to recover from, but I know you can do it!

You've recognized it, which is big. And you know the steps to fix it. Maybe take a day or two and write down everything you eat and drink? Make yourself accountable until you're able to pull back from the ledge. I know you can do it!
