I am trying to break out of my rut right now. I have been "stuck" for about 14 months now. I lost 80 pounds pretty quick, with SBD, basketball and weightlifting. Since then, I have just fallen into bad habits. I'll slip for awhile, slowly gain a few pounds back....and then catch myself and go hardcore SBD to get back where I was. I have been playing this game for 14 months and it is no fun! One week my cloths fit great, next week not so much.
My biggest problem is being too busy and opting for the convenience of fast food now, whereas when I was dedicated to SBD, I would totally avoid fast food because I knew how bad it was. But, if you cheat once, cheat twice, it slowly becomes your new habit.
I have about 35 pounds to go to reach my goal, and I am getting married in 6 months. I know I can easily get there, if I can stay motivated, dedicated and have self-discipline.
I am posting to the SBD forum just so I can declare my goals publicly and be accountable to myself. I'll probably just reply to myself over and over, just so I can keep track of how I'm progressing. =)
The SBD is a great lifestyle, I'm surpised everyone is not living it.
If anyone is interested in "buddying up" to create a support network, just let me know.
