Starting over again 🙄😕

amiocamioc Member Posts: 90 Member Member Posts: 90 Member
How many times have you all started over? I’ve started over so many times and now I’m at the point where I would love to look like my first before picture 😩!! Every time I start over I say “this is the last time I’m starting over” but so far it never is 😕. I just keep loosing and gaining the same few
lbs but now I have put on an extra 2lbs 😩!! For those of you that have followed through with it how did you make the last starting over count? What was different about it from the last time you started over if that makes sense? Any advice would be fantastic ☺️. I just have to stick to it this time!!!

    Ask yourself why do you keep stopping, what is hindering you, are you afraid of something? Journaling is how I found out what was going on inside of me. Took a bit of time but we (husband and I) got down to the root of my issues. The answer to those questions didn't and won't come immediately. One HUGE help was reading Shaun T's book T is For Transformation. Not only was it personal BUT he gave really good thoughtful advice. After reading his book things started to make sense. Every once in a while I will listen to his podcasts and those are helpful also. Hope that helps and makes sense to you. Good luck!

    Thanks for the suggestions @Nature003Life I'm starting over again for what feels like the millionth time :smiley: I'm excited to get back to feeling stronger both mentally and physically again but really trying to create a community and accountability.

    You're certainly not the only one!! I'm restarting again too! I'm migrating here to MFP from Sparkpeople as it's closing in August. I'm taking this as a fresh start.

    I also just got Shaun T's book. Hoping that'll help.
    All the best!!

    Sorry, meant to say, I’m
    69 and have set a goal to get healthier and lose weight (at least 15) so I can fit into a beautiful silk dress I wore to my daughters wedding 18 years ago. My 17 year old twin granddaughters are having a formal ceremony in February 2022 for an organization they belong to. Grandparents are invited and we’re very excited to be able to attend. That goal may sound a little shallow but I’m not just losing weight for that event. I’m using it as part of my incentive. I want to get in shape, for me!
