I’ve lost weight maybe 10 times but each and every time I’ve gained it back so fast as I completely fall off the wagon and start self sabotaging and eating/ boozing like crazy.
I’ve been working with a therapist for 8 months to overcome my perfectionism when is comes to diet and exercise and I’ve built some really good exercise habits.
I fell off the wagon 6 weeks ago, but not like the other times. This time I was drinking beers too often and eating the occasional junk food, but I wasn’t devouring crap or eating two unhealthy meals a day. I kept up my exercise which has become something I really enjoy.
I’ve finally got back on the health kick and I bit the bullet and weighed myself for the first time in 6 weeks and it’s within the range I was at the lowest. Sure maybe in a pound heavier, I can never know as I fluctuate naturally, but no catastrophe.
I feel maintenance in the future is a realistic prospect, but for now I’m back in pursuit of my goal weight.
