Let me start with the fact that I missed writing a blog. I was dealing with some health issues. Without going big into a lot of details… let’s just say I put my weight on the back burner for too long.
Here’s the thing: Ideal Protein works, and you can keep it off… maintenance works… but you can’t loose your focus.
I lost my focus and put on about 25 pounds. I had maintained for well over a year, got sick, and over the last 6 months I have lost focus.
Getting right back on after a splurge is effective and gives you a deep sense of pride. Getting back on after months of neglect comes with a sense of failure… and success requires you to counteract that feeling.
Today is day 3 for me. I feel like I am back to the beginning of my journey. You remember day 3. The headaches, lack of energy, the feeling of being overwhelmed. I know that I need to suck it up and get it done.
Sheer determination to get the weight back off is guiding me at the moment. I know I can do it. I know that it can be kept off too. I know the health benefits from staying on top of my weight are crucial to my happiness and sanity.
Today I start my day with a fabulous cup of chocolate drink mix, Walden Farms caramel syrup, Kona coffee, and a pinch of sea salt. I put it in my favorite mug.
I’ve got big plans, and being fat doesn’t fit into my plans!
