Remember---it took many times before learning how to:
-ride a bike
-insert you own ability here

You are able to get online here, type your thoughts, read the thoughts of others, and share...there are many people who still struggle with that simple act (I know, I each several <g>). If you can remember that determination that you had to reach the last goal you set, and that you had to "restart" several times, I am sure you can do this, too.

I am doing the same thing.

I did not have a struggle with weight before, but am now working to lose 50 pounds. I have gotten the idea of working out under my belt. Now I am working on adding the idea of eating correctly. I am realizing that making a mistake is not the end of the road--it is simply a way to learn, just like my students. I have also learned the concept of "restart on the start of the week" does not work when you goof in the middle of the week (for me, it gives too much "free" time)...I simply restart the next day, after analyzing what happened, and try not to do the same thing. I usually don't make the same mistake--I make new ones!

I also agree with the idea of community--I, too do better with others helping me along. That is one reason why I am here as well.

Best of luck to you!

Great advice Buny. I love that warning about "restart at the start of the week" or even I'll start tomorrow. Doesn't work. Even when we slip, we must not put off getting back on track until tomorrow.
