Don the SparkCoach. I just started yesterday, listing motivation as an area to focus on. I think it is going to help.

Some say that the first step in solving a problem is recognizing that there IS a problem and the second is to define the problem. You have made the first step and are working on step two as you have identified that you will need support. I strongly advocate keeping it simple and also taking and RECOGNIZING small steps. Even the longest trip starts with the first step.

With love and caring from Nancy ... wishing all of you a wonderful, blessed, and precious day.

In other words; don't try to change EVERYTHING at one time.
If small steps are what you can accomplish; it's something.

Keep moving forward toward your healthy journey, and you'll be making better (and more) great choices as time progresses

Yup, support and a plan. Good advice I was given was to only make simple choices you can keep longterm. Helped keep me from making things overly complex.

You can't do it until your commited right? I don't know if I'm any more depressed about my weight now than I ever have been but I really took a good look at myself in the mirror today. It felt like rock bottom. Once again, I couldn't make myself leave the house to go to the store. I took a picture. I need to make it happen. I will need support.
