Thank for giving me encouragement, I know I can once I put my mind to it! I need to stop the what do I do now? Oh I guess I will look to see what is to eat instead of oh I better go finish that quilt and stay away from the food? Duh? Well, I keep trying. Have to get on that treadmill that is in the other room just for 20, why can't I?

Thanks for the reply, I just have to keep trying, I just don't have a motivation other then I need to do it! I am hoping with the help of this site it will happen, one day at a time.

Hello and Welcome to SparkPeople!

I started Sparking in June of 2007. By using Spark and some self discovery along the way, I'm down 50 pounds, and am holding steady at a healthy weight. Spark is a massive site, you'll be discovering new and exciting things for months to come!

Greetings and welcome to Spark. I wish I had some magic answer for you. You just have to do it. You've got a treadmill - so make a 10 - 20 minute appointment every day that you HAVE TO KEEP.

I think I am ready this time! I am so tired of being overweight. I use to fit in a size 8 and now I am back to the great 14 and do not want to get any higher. I really need help. I am not a good self motivator at this time, must be a slump in my lfe. I wish I could get motivated, I have a treadmill that talks and encourages yet I can't seem to get on it and even do the 20 min, it tells me to do, HELP! I thought maybe if I really commit to this sight I will be able to loose the 20lbs I need to. I have been through a divorce and survived, I have lost my daughter in incarceration, and now what is my excuse? I am just giving up. I have a grandson that I want to be able to do thing with and he is my motivation at times, but because he does not live with me and I do not see him as often as I would like, anyways, I guess I could find all kinds of excuses. Well, just wanted to start somewhere and so here I am, I tried a year ago but never got anywhere because I never took the first step and admitted I have a problem with not just food and no exercise, I also like my beer. Help! emoticon
