Without Struggle There Is No Progress

I've been a member of Spark since Aug. of 07, although I didn't start using it until Jan. of 08. I lost 33 lbs. and maintained it for over a year. When I turned 50 I looked and felt the best I had in years.
Life got busy and I slowly gained it all back plus some extra. I've been struggling to get back on track for over a year. I do well for a few days and then I fall off the wagon. I can't seem to find and keep my motivation.

Life got busy and I slowly gained it all back plus some extra. I've been struggling to get back on track for over a year. I do well for a few days and then I fall off the wagon. I can't seem to find and keep my motivation.
Over the years of losing and not learning how to maintain I've learned that I have to do exercise I enjoy, eat some of the foods I like, and not try to be perfect.
I'm going to try again to get this weight off. I felt so much better and better about myself when I was thinner. I'm not going to make promises that I will reach certain goals by specific dates. That has worked for me in the past, but not lately. I don't want to break any more promises to myself so I'll take it slow.

Happy July and it's time to FLY!!

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

So glad to see that you signed up for the FLYING HIGH through JULY Challenge on the WW Team! It's going to be an adventure to remember as we grab Christmas from December! Now that you've pledged your pounds to lose, it's time to impress Santa by being NICE and never NAUGHTY --- so you better watch out, you better not cry, you better not pout, I'm telling you why.........

Santa Claus is coming to town to help us all lose a pound! (or 2 or 10!)

We're getting fired up --- and why?
Because it is Christmas in July and we're FLYING HIGH!

Have a terrific Tuesday! and Jingle Bells all the weigh today! (I know it's corny - but it's all I got!!!)

Jane

Thank you for your sweet comments on my pottery. Most of all the enjoyment of the process is really giving me relief from stress. I rarely go to sugar for stress relief on the days I'm at the studio. This three week break between classes, with the studio closed has gotten me into trouble with sugar. But I bought some clay to play with at home doing "hand-building" Making birdbaths since almost everyone wants one. emoticon

Thanks again!
