I am with you Capri! I don't want to do it. I have not done it yet. I came to your post looking for motivation.
And guess what? I found it. You made me feel more normal. You have made changes and it helps me know it is possible while still really just wanting to eat chocolate!

Motivation can ebb and flow everyday depending on a lot of circumstances. i find that going through my motivational journal helps remind me why I do all this. I cut pictures, exercises, recipes, quotes etc out and put them in a journal. Have you ever tried anything like that?
Some of my favorite magazines are Oxygen, Clean Eating, Yoga Journal, Muscle & Fitness Hers.
Hope you feel better tomorrow!

Hi, CAPRISONYA !!
Congratulations on those blood tests !! Being "normal" is a wonderful thing ! You've decreased your risk for heart disease, diabetes, cancer, etc...
What you're feeling is perfectly normal. We all have days like this. Would you like to have a piece of chocolate ? Spark People has never been about deprivation. It's all about moderation and portion control. Yes, even a couple of pieces of chocolate CAN be a part of a healthy lifestyle as long as you are mindful of the portion. Sit and savor that chocolate. don't inhale it like a Hoover or you will end up overeating it. Let is dissolve in your mouth. Enjoy the favor. Enjoy the sensation. No one will think less of you if you have a small portion.
A person should never feel guilty for wanting to have a treat. If you know you've been eating right most of the time, it really is okay to have a treat now and then. I can't imagine living a life where I couldn't eat something because I was worried it would make me fat. that's not healthy.
If you'd like a piece of chocolate. have a piece. If you're just feeling a little low today, how about a walk around the neighborhood ? I find walking a great way to reduce stress and relax.
Don't worry, you're doing great !!

I know I used to have it. And it's gone. Just saw my doctor--she is thrilled with my progress so far, and my blood tests came back normal, which is great, and I should be feeling motivated.
And I'm not. At all. I just want to sit here and eat chocolate. Lots of chocolate.
