My Motivation Station

I started lifting weights when I was 48 & started competing in Figure when I was 50. I loved the diets and the workouts and was really proud of myself even though I didn't do very well on stage. After my third contest I decided that my ego didn't need any more beating and that I didn't need to get on stage to have the body I loved. Then I went straight back to my old habits of eating candies, chocolate bars, crackers and chips and drinking lots of booze. Since then, every time I try to diet or ...
I started lifting weights when I was 48 & started competing in Figure when I was 50. I loved the diets and the workouts and was really proud of myself even though I didn't do very well on stage. After my third contest I decided that my ego didn't need any more beating and that I didn't need to get on stage to have the body I loved. Then I went straight back to my old habits of eating candies, chocolate bars, crackers and chips and drinking lots of booze. Since then, every time I try to diet or even try to just eat clean for one day, something inside freaks out. I won't deny myself anything . . . and on it goes. But, I have a Spark Buddy and I'm checking off all my goals and gathering spark points, so hopefully the motivation will come back soon. :)

HI,
Saw you were looking for a buddy.
I weigh 143 and I'm hoping to get down to 130.
Like you I have done it before but I'd like to have someone to be accountable too when I mess up. Would you like to be my buddy?

Hi- Welcome to the EE team! Great place for support, and encouragement, and a place to vent if you need to!

10 Positive Assumptions

1) I will make and keep my commitments.

2) I will find the right people who can help me.

3) I will look for an answer in every problem.

4) I will give up trying and simply do.

5) I will make it okay to be wrong and make mistakes.

6) I will create my own good luck.

7) I will not be afraid to lose before I win.

8 ) I will do it now!

9) I will be who I am and become what I was meant to be.

10) I will accept that all things are possible.

-Robert Anthony, in his book Betting on Yourself.

Hope to see you on the message boards! Have a great week!
Tina

¸.•♥´ .•´¨¨ ¸´¸.•´¨Welcome to the EE team!!
I’ve belonged to a lot of teams here on spark-- i really do believe that the Emotional Eaters team is one of the very best, it’s a great group of people- very supportive and encouraging-- and it is very refreshing to talk with people who "get" what you're going through!! ¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥.*¸.•´¸.•*¨¸.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*¨) ¸.•*¨)
Check out the main page of the EE team- there are “stickied” topics you may be interested in to get involved- a buddy thread, a place to introduce yourself, weigh-in challenge, a birthday post. ¸.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*¨(¸.•´ (¸.•´ (¸.•´¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥. ¸.•♥´ .•´¨¨ ¸´¸.•´¸.•*¨)¸¸.•´ ..•-~'¸.•*¨)
Spark has a lot of great tools, and you will learn which ones work best for you. The best tools are the people tho, always willing to lend a hand, an ear, or a shoulder. I’ve been here for over a year now, and I still am overwhelmed, every day, by the kindness and goodness of others on this team!! That has made a world of difference for me. I hope you have the same success! ¸¸.•¨¸♥¨`*,¸.•*´¨`*• .¸♥.*.•*¨¸.•´¸.•*
