Drink Water! Track Calories! Move! : ) (reminder to myself)

~~ March 2013 ~~

Spider webs.

That's what this place reminds me of.

Thin, glistening strands, delicately connected.

On their own they're not very strong.

But joined together?

They bear the force of just about anything thrown at them.

I sabotage my own success frequently. I get excited about starting a new meal plan/fitness program/other motivational plan but after a day or two I forget all about it (literally).

I've started over at least a dozen times but have little to show for it (yet).

I know I can do this - I KNOW I can do this. Something is holding me back. I used to be skinny. Am I afraid to be skinny again? Am I using my weight to protect me from something?

I know how to lose weight. I could explain to anyone the steps they would need to take to create a program for weight loss for themselves.

I know how to eat healthfully. I know what my trigger foods are and that I must limit them by not having them in the house.

I know how to exercise within my capabilities, I just don't.

I have my list of ten reasons why I want to...have to...lose weight. I know I'd feel better, be able to move without pain, be able to sleep, be able to buy nice clothes instead of the fat people's clothes that only come in black.

And I still don't.

I don't know the "why" of why I'm fat. I think it matters that I figure it out.

And at the same time, I'm committing to doing the things that I know I need to do:
15 minutes of exercise at least 5 days a week.
Eating within calorie range of 1600-2000.
Tracking.
Staying engaged in the conversations here on SP.

I've gotta do this.
