I know I've been holding myself back and I know there are others out there... maybe we can help each other.

Why didn't anyone think of this before?! I'm totally in Christine's camp. ( boy is THAT gonna look funny. A group, huddled at the end of the diving board!)

So,trying to move forward and stay positive I am denouncing my crown (Queen of Self Sabotage) because after reading a few quotes from "The Secret" what you put out there is what you get back. I do not think that label is overly positive! I do love sugar but no dates, no weight loss this week, pants are too tight, I grunt when I tie up my sneakers, are reasons to throw up my hands and go shopping for sugar

I'm going on a week holiday on Tuesday and I've decided that when I get back I will buckle down...make excercise a daily activity and make better food choices but I didn't want to give up this week... who drops healthy eating choices for fast food a week before they go somewhere hot... shorts, bathing suits, tank-tops, ugh... apparently I do...

The minute I hit my WW goal (not my personal goal), literally THAT NIGHT, I started inhaling more food than I had in months. It was absolutely insane. I bought a bag of oreos, and let's just say they are no longer with us. ABSOLUTELY a HORRIBLE and STUPID idea. Instead of being proud of this accomplishment and continuing to be successful, I took a cliff-dive into the hard rocky floor of self-sabotage.
The day after making goal I knew I was going away for a conference where the food was provided and I wouldn't be able to exercise for days (my way...which is another issue I suppose...not trying something different and being flexible to changes). I could have said "I can beat this...look at the 50+ pounds I just lost". But instead I gave up before it even began and gained weight instead. I couldn't embrace my success for even ONE HOUR. That's how bad this is for me. I have no clue how I am going to do anything in my life without self-sabotaging myself. And, like Christine, this pervades all aspects of my life like a disease.
That being said, I found my way back to eating right and exercising and tracking points last Tuesday...yet again. So far, doing very well in the days since. I will keep trying. I don't want to fail. I need to find a new me so badly it hurts.

Erin... I just read your post and I can't believe how similar my experience has been since I reached goal. How many of us are there? What is the answer? I think of the money Oprah has spent trying to get thin and stay thin... she has her own cooks... and she doesn't have the answer (not that she should have all of them). I think it's just hard... it's a way of life... and it's something that I will have to work at every minute (oh great) for the rest of forever.

I think I need this group!

You are right. I did succeed at losing weight. I was happy and thin and still me. I worked really, really hard and now I'm letting it slip away for a couple of chocolate chips and my kids' leftovers. I can succeed at change... now I have to succeed at staying the same.
