I walked 54 minutes this morning, and wanted to track on the map but flipping map won't come up. I dont know how fast I walked so I don't want to track it this way.

It's been such a long time since I've been on spark. I'm ready to get back on track. I do actually know why I can't lose weight I can certainly maintain. It's really hard sometimes when life gets in the way. so tomorrow morning I'm on the treadmill.and I'll eat healthy all day. I'll do one day at a time. But it amazes me how bitchy and emotional I get when I don't work out. I know it but yet I continue to find one excuse after another not to or I simply don't feel like it. So where in my mind do I find that spot that keeps me going. because after numerous years of doing this I still fall short.

I was reading that a couple of people on this site have trouble with their drinking. I did also. My ex-husband has a huge drinking problem and it was creating one in me. I was drinking on a daily basis and put the pounds on faster than you could say 'jack sprat'.....Now, life is better. I don't drink anymore (well, maybe one or two on a holiday) as the man I am now with does not drink. That has been a HUGE help to me.

If you feel like having a drink, drink some flavored water instead. It tastes much better, doesn't put on the pounds or give you a headache. I know that for a fact. You guys keep plugging away and you'll do well. I'm trying too.....I want to live a long and healthy life with the love of my life.

150's? I'd LOVE TO GET BACK INTO 150's! I can't get out of the 70's...........I was always thin up until the last number of years. But stress will do that to you. Destressed, and moving on in life ;-)

Yesterday I 'started again'..........I have not been successful because of the stress in my life. That stress, for the most part, has now been alleviated. I can get back on track. I did well yesterday as I worked out for 30 minutes. I kept under my 'total' calorie allotment as I have done as well today. I write myself 'spark notes' that I can refer back to. I'm also keeping track of my BP and it has gone WAY down! This is good news for me. I keep reminding myself that I want to get healthier and thinner not only for myself, but for my loved ones. :-)

Note: Anxiety relief= exercise, clean house, and a vacation, from everyone, once again I've slacked for a few days, ate too much crap, drank too much alcohol and I'm feeling the results. So yes, today I get back on track, I work out I run or walk and I eat right, back to taking care of me.

ok so the unhealthy eating must be holding me back, I can't get the scale to budge, I know there's so much that plays a part but it's really discouraging to be working out on a regular basis and see nothing, ok so I wont give up but i might just scream, damn it, it just sucks, errr I just want to get out of the 150's for once and all. Nope I won't give up, I will eat healthy today and I will work out. and I will reach my little goal. And I'm still a little mad. Damnit

a nite of 5 wings, and 2 slices meat lovers pizza, has left me feeling bloated and ugly this morning, it was sabotage on my husband fault, but it was still my choice, kicking my self in the ass, and no work out this morning, makes my miserable, i'm off to do a 20 hour day , on my feet, ugh! but I will eat healthy today and lots of water.

drinking is one of my biggest downfalls, a beautiful day off, plenty of yard work, and beer, stupid!, beer, leads to bad eating, leads to beating myself up the next day to more emotional eating, ugh, so for today I've consumed most of my calories between breakfast n lunch, and most of it processed and or high fat. Still kicking my own ass, but i've got at least 8 or so hours left in this day to redeem myself, fruits, veggies, a lot of water and some more activities, and no more flipping beer.

I'm on the same page, patty's day is over and I'm on a reprieve, my stepdaughter lost 15 lbs just by giving up drinking. but I know that will truly be one day at a time. just part of this weight loss, healthy living journey.

Note: thanks for all the support, it means alot, that one of the reasons I enjoy this site so much. After 2 days off for some recovery from long hours at work, and a stupid head cold, I'm back on track today, today I'll stay on point. I actually feel much better after my 20 min 30 day shred, and later some extra cardio. My mood has lightened. Screw this flipping cold.

I always track my calories for the full day before I eat anything. I find that this usually prevents any caloric surprises later. I usually plan out my meals for the week but I track the food on SP for 2-3 days in advance. That way I always know what I'm eating and how much the next day. I do leave room for some extra calories though because, hey, I'm only human and it happens. I usually keep a lot of healthy filling snacks around when I'm at work so when I do get hungry, I can have any one of my snacks and still be safely within my caloric content for the day. I hope this helps.

Congrats on sticking with it! We're all going to have days we struggle, but the important part is to focus on not giving up.

Thanks for the encouragement, I've always had weight issues, but I'm really determined. I got in 20min with 30 day shred. and a 2+ mile walk, have ate healthy and feel great for doing so. Any more its about how it makes me feel mentally. Without healthy living I become a real biotch.

Good for you for not giving up. I definitely count my calories before I eat...that way I can make any necessary adjustments. I also plan, plan, plan so I do better.

note: get back on track today, 2 days of no exercise and not eating right, is making me miserable, talking self sabotage,get over it, I ran all day with Ed and he'll sabotage me with out even realizing it. no more, but so much work to be done around here and so little time, I wish I was more of a nite person, any way my main goal is a walk/ run and to eat healthy today. YEAH ME!!
