I'm the 'Lazy Quilter' who doesn't always take the time to try to achieve perfection. I prefer to enjoy the process of creating instead of agonizing over being perfect. I am 'Walker Lady' who changed my lifestyle and lost over 70 pounds in the process!

REBOOT!!!

Inserting expletives here.......@$^678(^%^&@!522@!$^*!!!!!!
I have totally fallen to a new low. Dagnabit! After being sick for a week, followed by my two oldest sons' visit from out of town, I gained enough weight to be a hair over 230 pounds. DAMMIT!!! And don't go telling me I have an excuse for the gain. I really do NOT. I've been skating on the edge for a while now and have been in denial about my eating and exercising.

Am I a fake for teaching a healthy living and weight loss class? Heck no! I am demonstrating that everyone has their ups and downs. I am showing I am not Super Woman and am human. And I will be showing that you really DO have to keep a food journal (in most cases) and pay attention to your exercise habits to lose weight or to maintain lost weight.

And after a week of journaling, I was down a bit over a pound. 228.2. Now, if only I could get my mojo back and walk more!

So frustrating, the ups and downs of healthy living! But the important thing is what you're doing right now--rebooting, self-correcting, getting back into balance.

Like you, sometimes I drift towards weight gain and can't get my mind around taking steps until something clicks and says "enough!" I think the cyclical approach to motivation can work fine, it's giving up entirely that does people in. Which you have NOT done.

Good luck on the reboot!

Hi Sherri! It's been ages since I checked in with, but I'm thinking about you. Sorry to hear you are struggling. I just want you to know that reboot is possible. I know, because I have done it myself. I have gone through two or three "gain phases" in my five years of maintenance, and in all cases have managed to get control and recover. Strangely enough, I tend to regain when I am going through a particularly happy time. But to recover, it always comes down to getting back to the basics. But it is undoubtedly different for each person. Whatever it takes for you, I hope you find it. Just don't give up. There's no upside to that. Courage!

Cynthia and Crabby, SO very good of you to stop by and comment. Thank you both!

I will not give up and I don't know if I will ever be in ONE-derland again, but I am much healthier than I was when I began all this.

I really appreciate your comments. Thank you!
