Well what have you got to lose

So trying again, after the millionth time! Surely something in my brain has to click eventually! I've got lots of weight to lose, and lots to gain - I'm not ready to give up on this yet.

The pups and I say Hi! and Thanks for the bloglove on my
After 100 Days - A Subjective Assessment post. It's true - I found the long challenge and the egotistical motivation somewhat unrewarding but I did finish what I started and the whole thing has given me time to think of Other Things I Might Try. For sure, Callie and Juno are glad I spent so much time with them.

I don't know how you got so smart, but no matter how it happened, I'm so glad that you share your wisdom with us. It always baffles me how we can be so hard on ourselves, but we are always so kind to others. When my friends fall off track or overeat I tell them that they can turn it around and not to feel bad, but when I do it I tell myself I'm ridiculous and that I can't believe I would do something so horrible. Just like I see how far I have to go and others see how far I have come. I am definitely working on how I talk to myself and learning to be kinder, but it's a process. emoticon

The question you asked is exactly it! Why is it so hard to just keep going? I can maintain and I can let it not get too far away. I'm like 11 or 12 pounds up from my lowest but I'm getting it back down.... but I have a feeling when I see about 185 that is when I really feel AWESOME and then I get distracted and ago to 190, and the yo yo goes back and forth. I am working on trying to break the cycle but it's not that easy. Although I will say even by the BMI chart that I think is a waste of time and energy, I'm only overweight, no longer obese, and I came from like class 3 obesity, so that's pretty neat. emoticon But I don't put any emotional attachment or thought into that silly chart for the most part LOl.

Thanks for the blog love on my Got The Low Down Blues post. It amazes me how one can slip into self pity when a solution is so easy.
