I saw this post Monday. And I so empathized with her that I had to chime in. By the time I was done commenting, it was almost its own post.
Oh, honey…I am SO right there with you. I am FOREVER starting over. To the point where I threw it all to the wind a couple years ago and quit trying.
THAT didn’t work. Backfired in a BIG way.
You know, I worked with a trainer a few years ago who repeatedly berated me for falling off the wagon. When he stopped to take a breath, I chimed in, “Well, at least I started over again.”
Went over like a lead balloon. Said if I stayed on the program to begin with, I’d never have to worry about starting over. To his credit, he got me down to my lowest-ever adult weight. But I couldn’t STAY there without him breathing down my neck.
Heaven knows I don’t have it all figured out. I don’t have hardly ANYTHING figured out. But one thing I have figured out is this: If at first you don’t succeed, try try again. Because trust me…the alternative SUCKS.
That’s the one weight-loss thing I know for sure. Anyone else have any pearls of wisdom?
