Getting Off the Roller Coaster

I've been a member on SparkPeople since 2008, and I've done well here. I've also done poorly, when I just get out of the habit of using all of these free resources. (That's self-defeating me - I don't know why I hang out with her so much, but I do).

What I would really like to do is get off of this weight roller coaster. When I manage to establish good exercise and eating habits, I can't let some odd incident end it for months until I become so sick with myself that I need to ...

What I would really like to do is get off of this weight roller coaster. When I manage to establish good exercise and eating habits, I can't let some odd incident end it for months until I become so sick with myself that I need to start over.

I am still a marathoner, and I've finally have a finish time that makes me proud. (It may be a slower pace for many, but for me, it feels right).
I would like to become less reliant on running as my main form of exercise. I need to lift weights with some consistency. I wouldn't mind going back on P90X. It's a tough workout, but I felt like i was making progress.
I would really like to stop using food as a stress reliever, source of comfort, best friend/worst enemy, favorite past time. Really, can't I just see it as a source of nutrition. Why does it so rule my life? (I'm looking at you, Food Network. Stop - Messing - With - My - Head!)

The only thing harder than the first step is the second, but after that, I know that it gets easier..... At least I think it does.
Oh well, here's hoping.

Thanks for the support!

A lot of it comes down to "bad" foods. There's a specific type of candy that can only be purchased in 400 or 500g bins, that I get a hankering for every once in a while. So I can't resolve the craving with a couple, and I'll eat the whole bin in 2 days.

Stuff like that is where it came from. But I'm so active that losing the weight and staying within that range is REALLY hard (harder now than when I lose the weight walking and dancing only).

I'll get there :) Thanks again!

The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now. –Chinese Proverb

Whatever "tree" you're planting right now, may the roots run deep!
Hope to see you over on The Healthy Lunch Club!!

Re: Game of Thrones - Paul has read the entire series and is DYING to get it on Netflix, but I told him I wanted to read it first! I'm actually within sight of finishing, amazing what a week off will do. :-)
