Mardew's Struggle

Here it is May 2014. I'm back again for another go. I just don't know why I can't seem to stay on track. Every time I start a new plan, I do really well for a week or so, and then life gets in the way. I get real busy, and forget to track, plan and monitor what I eat.

I'm tired of the roller coaster (used to love roller coasters, now I can't even fit on one). So sad! Getting close to 60 (next April) and feel like my life is over. No energy, feel sick and dizzy all the time, ...
Here it is May 2014. I'm back again for another go. I just don't know why I can't seem to stay on track. Every time I start a new plan, I do really well for a week or so, and then life gets in the way. I get real busy, and forget to track, plan and monitor what I eat.

I'm tired of the roller coaster (used to love roller coasters, now I can't even fit on one). So sad! Getting close to 60 (next April) and feel like my life is over. No energy, feel sick and dizzy all the time, can't focus, no concentration, and lots of pain from Artritus, RA, Neuropathy, etc. It's time I get fit. Wish I could afford a personal trainer, coach, nutritionist, etc. But since I can't, just have to go it alone again.

I spent the last 30 years of my life taking care of my family and always putting myself last. (Typical mother, I guess). Now it's my turn. My sons are all grown and have moved away so the only people I need to take care of now is my husband, my elderly father and my cute little overweight dog. And, of course, me.

I need constant reminders to take care of myself, but because of my "fuzzy head" and lack of ability to focus and concentrate, it's difficult to do.

But I just cannot give up. I need to lose more than 100 pounds and it seems like an impossible task. But then I log on here and see that many people have been able to do it. Why can't I? A question I need to find the answer for.

So...... here goes.....

Fitness Minutes: 165

My Goals:
To learn to eat smaller portions, making better choices and incorporating more fresh fruits and vegetables.

My Program:
I am following a heathy eating plan that includes plenty of veggies, very little carbs and not too much meat, and have found that you can be satisfied with proteins other than meat. So far, so good.

Personal Information:
I am a 55 year old wife, mother, and business owner who has been fighting weight since I was a teenager.

I have tried many diets and yes they do work (at least for the two or three weeks that I am able to stick with it).

Looking for a buddy to help stay focused.





Other Information:
I love reading, surfing the web, travelling, crafts, and music and would like to find the time to do all those things.

Welcome back! Baby steps work wonders. Do one thing at a time until it becomes natural and then move on to something else....it will all come together in the end!

Welcome back. We are glad to hear from you. Just talking small walks is a start. I was the same way at work being disorganized. Then I decided I am going to finish one thing then move on to the next job. I sometimes get off track but I just go back and before I know it I am finished then ready to do the next job on my desk. Just take it one day at a time.
