In the past I lost 40 lbs. 3 years later I gained it back and more.
That time that I was successful was the time I stayed consistent. I wasent perfect on my diet, but if I fell of the wagon I got right back on. If I cheated, I wouldn’t crash and burn, I would just continue on, almost as if it never happened.
And conistency, to me, is the biggest key to weight loss. You can be doing Weight Watchers, counting calories, Atkins, or just eating healthy and working out, but if you give up, and are not consistent, you won’t loose weight (obviously).
Sometimes, when we “cheat” on our diet, we feel guilty, eat more, and quit. But when we stay consistent, even if we mess up here and there, we will see results.
Imagine your weightloss journey (or any kind of journey) is like a train. You get on this train heading to a certain destination (nice body & good health). When you are doing good, you are working toward your destination. If you mess up, imagine the train just stopping. It is not going backwards. It is not falling over. It’s not crashing. All you need to do, is keep eating right and working out, and you will keep going toward your destination. Now, if you catch my drift, if you turn this mess up into a give up, your train is crashing. Don’t let it crash. Don’t give up.
This post may be slightly just a pep talk for myself, but hey if it helps someone great! I fell off the wagon tonight. Usually, I would just straight up give up. But this time, this time it’s different. My train may have had a slight stop tonight, but it will keep going tomorrow.
