I’m going to tell you a harsh truth about losing weight; at some point, you’re going to fall off the wagon.
You’ll be chugging along on your plan, losing weight steadily, and then life will happen. Maybe it’s a birthday or anniversary celebration, or an illness in the family, or extra stress at work while working on a big project. One day you’re faithfully tracking your calories, staying on your plan, and losing weight, and the next thing you know, you’re not.
You’re eating all the cookies, chips, soda, and high-calorie foods that you know you shouldn’t. They taste good but you kinda hate yourself for it.
One day off-plan is an anomaly. If it lasts more than a week, you’ve officially fallen off the weight loss wagon. I hate to be the one to have to break it to you, but it’s a harsh truth of weight loss. If you’re off plan for too long, you lose the good habits that were working for you and slip into complacency that caused you to gain weight in the first place.
The good news is that you can get back on the wagon. The fact that you’re here, reading this blog, means that you still care about achieving your weight loss goals. You fundamentally know that you still want to continue losing weight and you don’t want to go back to the “before.” You know where you want to end up, and what that “after” will look like.
So what are you going to do?
You’re going to Start Over. Starting NOW. That’s what you’re going to do!
