The Journey Interrupted

It's very difficult to face the truth but the truth is I have fallen off my weight loss program. While I can analyze and fret over why, I don't think that will benefit me in any way. The consequence of this is weight gain. I've gained some pounds back but am beginning AGAIN today. So, after a break from the program, I desperately want to begin anew today by forgiving myself. This is very very difficult for me. I am naturally more prone to wallow around in self loathing but must move past that into action. Action today is eating my food provided by my plan and preparing a healthy dinner for me and my husband tonight.

OK. Here goes!
If you are reading this, please say a prayer for me.
Blessings!
Vicki

  1. Came from Rhoda's blog and just said a prayer... for us both.

    It IS a journey, after all. If you take a road trip to Florida, and have to stop for an emergency, you don't end your trip and go home, right? Nope, you just get right back in the car and keep on rollin'.

    So keep on rollin', new friend!

    And I don't know what your downfall was, but I know myself that sometimes a weekend full of Mexican food and breakfast out is worth a little setback. :o)

    1. Dear Ian's Girl,
      Thank you so very much for saying a prayer for both of us! With God, nothing is impossible! Love your analogy about the road trip. Yep, I took a prolonged break, but I'm rollin' along toward my immediate destination of 199 lbs. My downfalls do seem to occur over weekends, which my Health Coach reminded me of recently. I just need to be more prepared. Thank you so very much for leaving an inspirational comment! I'm working on developing my blog so please drop by again! God bless YOU, new friend!

  2. I, too, came from Rhoda's blog. I think you look great and wish you well on your journey. I'm on the same journey! LOL It's amazing the difference in your profile after a 10 lb. loss. I think if I gain 5 lbs., 4 of them go to my neck and jawline!!

    1. Hello Cathy! Your comment brought a smile as I can so relate! I've always said that when I lose 5 pounds, they come from my bosom and my face! Not my belly! Grrrr! Thank you for your kind words and and good luck on your own journey! I'm working to develop my blog so please drop by again and let me know how you're doing. Until then, God bless you as you seek optimal health!

  3. I am also from Rhoda's blog, and am also 58 and on a weight loss journey. I was so discouraged a couple of weeks ago when I gained a little after consistent weight loss. I am past that plateau and are a couple of more pounds down. The goal is healthy eating - FOR LIFE! I am already finding myself preferring healthy foods to some of the junk I ate before. Spend calories like money. If you eat something high calorie and it is not worth it, throw the rest away! I just ate half a Bliss chocolate square, and said - this is not even that good and threw out the rest. I hope I am an encouragement to you. BTW - you are beautiful at your current size! But you will probably be healthier at a smaller size. I know I will be.

    1. Wow, Kim, you're an inspiration! The self discipline to trash the rest of the Bliss bar is awesome! Your encouraging words are such a blessing to me and I appreciate you sharing them. So we're both 58! Just think how wise we are compared to say....38! I'm working on developing my blog and hope you'll drop by again. Until then, keep up the healthy habits. You're right, we must choose health FOR LIFE!

  4. I am also joining you Vicki from Rhoda's blog. I am so glad I found you and your blog through Rhoda. Please, please don't beat yourself up over this. Anyone on a weight loss/healthy life journey has been at that point where we trip up. I know I have several times over. We know the I portent thing is to press forward and begin again. Prayers and blessings for you Vicki.

  5. Thank you for visiting my blog and I appreciate your encouraging comments. Yes, we must press toward the mark, focusing on the future and our goals. It is futile to look back with regret and the shoula, coulda, woulda mindset. Together we can accomplish so much! I hope you'll drop by again! Blessings to you and yours!
