That's me. Master of the Yo-yo diet. With a little help from Wikipedia I realize the analogies are endless. There is the shape of the yo-yo: Imperial, Modified, and Butterfly, etc. I'm not even going there on my yo-yo shape (including the weight distribution issue). The yo-yo techniques caught my eye: more on that in a second. The friction sources: how quickly the yo-yo returns to the hand of the player. Performance accessories. I might dedicate an entire blog to my performance accessories because they are endless. Those accessories needed every time to succeed on my newest yo-yo journey, only to be left behind cluttering my closets and cupboards. Your welcome Amazon and Target.
There are several yo-yo techniques with the basic one called sleeping. How long the yo-yo can spin before traveling back up is the sleeping state. On average however, I can spin for about 12 weeks before slowly climbing back up to my original weight. I started this blog in January, of course, ready and willing to finally shed the weight. You guessed it: I never wavered for a strong 12ish weeks. Then I started my yo-yo journey back to my original January weight. I succeeded with a bonus pound to boot. Such an over achiever I am. I am discouraged, sad, frustrated, but not without hope. This month I am starting again. Praying I last longer than 12 weeks. A lot happened this spring and summer and I hope to post a catch-up blog soon.
So here I go again. I'm starting slowly; taking one day at a time. I am actually just trying to make it through today, and praying that will turn into a lot of successful days that turn into a lifetime of successful living. I am healthy, here, blessed, thankful, and starting anew. Thank God for new beginnings!!
