I have gained a few pounds. I am sure it’s because I haven’t been exercising much this winter, but it’s still disheartening. How do I keep myself from spiraling down again? It is so easy for depression to set in when I’ve gained weight.
I had this problem too last year. I went back to the basics. Track every calorie you consume every day. Sometimes you don’t realize all the things you put in your mouth. A big thing for me was condiments, those calories add up fast!
I’ve learned that diet is 80%, exercise is 20%.
Start setting new goals today and reward yourself when you reach them. It’s easy to get off track, but you will succeed in the end! You got this!
