I think I've lost cout of amount of times I've been off and back on the wagon....
Hi all, just thought I'd pop in to (re)introduce myself. Technically I've been a member of this community for a few years (posted a few times under my old name, soldiers_pixie) but haven't frequented the comm much since I haven't really been sticking to program for a while.
Like mentioned above, I really have lost track of how many times I've been off and back on the program. I was first introduced to WW when I was 16, but wasn't very serious about it. Around the fall of my 22nd birthday I moved back home from college, being in the bridal party of a friend's upcomming wedding gave me the push to revisit it. I stuck fairly diligently to it and ended up losing 10%. For reasons I really don't know I fell off the wagon not too long after that, and these past few years have pretty much been rinse and repeat...go back on plan, stay for a while, fall back onto old (unhealthy) habits, stop going to meetings and tracking...pretty much not being on program, decide to go back and more often than not see I've regained all that I lost as well as a little more, again, stay for a whle, fall off wagon, go back at higher new starting weight....and so on and so forth.( Collapse )
So, in case of tl:dr
---pretty much, I've been off and on program a lot these past couple of years. Recent events have led me to really see how out of shape I am [aka I'm a 26 year old with the endurance level of a 80 yr old...] and in general I'm not liking what I see in pictures and in the mirror.
My past experience has shown me that when I stick to the plan I see and feel wonderful results. So, the only hurdle is *staying* on plan, and not giving up for whatever reason (I'll admit, usually it's been just laziness..) like I've been doing.
I just keep thinking 'oh yeah, I'm motivated and good to go NOW, but c'mon we've seen this before, in a few months I'll make up some excuse and fall off the wagon and then in a year I'll be doing this again...' and I'm trying not to let that way of thinking linger in my head since that's pretty much setting myself up for a self fufilling prophecy and being incredibly negative but it's hard. Any words of wisdom on how to stay motivated from anyone who might have had a revolving door in their WW history would definetely be appreciated.
Thanks, and sorry for rambling on and on haha.
