Getting back on the Wagon@!?

Postby yoyogirl88 » Wed Jan 02, 2008 6:46 pm

ARRRG!!!! I'm having a really hard time getting back to my old routine after nearly 2 weeks being hectic and full of odd days and travel and christmas and drinking. I only put on a few kilos but everytime i change and start to lose weight it works for a few weeks or a month or so and then my routine goes out the window adn I feel like It just doesnt matter. This time I'm trying hard to get back on but I"m finding it hard. Normally my boyfriend is very supportive but he has watched this film so many times i dont think its much fun anymore. I really dont want to dissapoint myself or him again.

Does anyone have any tips!!!?????

the only thing i have to offer, is not think of it as a wagon. Just start the next day back on track... eating better. Forget the days that you cant take back, and just keep going. Everything I have read says that we shouldtn think of eating well as a diet, but a way of life. We sometimes will eat something "bad" but the next meal you can choose to eat somethign that is healthier.

Not sure if it will help, but it is about changing how we think (somethign I need to do!).

Good luck!

i think you've just gotta take one day at a time - you want to keep your overall goal in sight, but sometimes it feels overwhelming so i find it easier to just focus on each day. and i try not to write off a whole day if i choose to eat something that isn't particularly healthy - if i slip up one meal, that doesn't mean the rest of the day has to be the same.

my motivation was gone for ages, but has come flying back in the last few weeks. for me, it was going back to a pt - cos i actually see improvements in other things like my fitness, so i don't obsess so much about the scales, i focus on my health instead.

i read somewhere that you need to start with goals that it's almost impossible not to reach - that way you feel like you've achieved something...and then you can increase the goals as you go.

eek. this isn't making much sense at all, is it?! :?

Getting back on the wagon is everyone's new year's resolution, mine too. Have a great time with it. As a yoyo dieter you must know everything you need to do already, you just need to do it. :lol:

You can do this.. as others have said, you need to see it as a total lifestyle change, or you won't stick to it.

Maybe make small changes more gradually, rather than a whole lot of big changes at once, this may make it easier to stick to?

Just get yourself organised, remove any foods that you know will put you off track, go for a walk and get back into it! (sorry if that was too bossy?) :D.

I always do the classic "I'll start again tomorrow" song and tomorrow turns into next month. It's true you can't take back the days/nights you ate/drank more than you should of, but starting back today you don't have to see 2 kilos turn into 5, or 10kg. Which, we've all seen happen before and you get even more down :(.

You're not letting anyone down hun, just start a fresh, get back into curves and you'll be fine. You CAN do it! Lane xo
