So, last year I lost almost 40 pounds. Between the holidays of last year and now, I’ve managed to gain back about 15 pounds. There. I said it. Well, I wrote it. I’m not pleased, but I’m not gonna flip out about it either. No one made me eat what I wasn’t supposed to eat. Even a broken foot shouldn’t have kept me from exercising. Time to get back to it. By it, I mean strict (98% strict) AIP. Eating something off protocol should be the exception, not the norm. I’ve said that to myself SO MANY TIMES. I’ve got to pull it together, take off the 15 I gained plus more.
I have learned that non-scale victories are often better than scale victories. Fitting in a fabulous dress without having to suck your gut in. Tightening the buckle at your calves on your knee-high boots. Truly seeing your collar bone! Those are the non-scale I have experienced, and I loved them!
I have tons of inspiration around me. I’m going to use that inspiration. I’m going to exercise willpower. I’m going to eat what I’m supposed to eat. I’m ready. I won’t fail. I might backslide a little, but I won’t fail. Honestly, I haven’t failed. I’ve just not done as well as I could lately. I can do this!
