Can't give up

I've been trying to lose weight for 20 years, with no lasting success. The older I get, the harder it is. But just when I think I should give up, I try again. So here I am ... 46 years old and trying again to get back to the healthy weight and lifestyle I once took for granted. I admit I don't have a lot of hope for success this time. I feel beaten down on this quest. I can't quite muster the energy or enthusiasm I've had during previous attempts at weight loss. But I can't seem to give up. I ...

I feel beaten down on this quest. I can't quite muster the energy or enthusiasm I've had during previous attempts at weight loss. But I can't seem to give up. I know what I need to do. It's going to be hard to stay motivated. But I'm willing to try again.

My Goals:
I'm starting very simply. If I can get a piece of fresh fruit into my stomach every day this week, that will be amazing.

My Program:
If I can wake up each morning with the thought that "I need to be healthy" is my only priority, and if I do one thing healthy right off, then my whole day is a success, and that any other "plans" I have for the day take a backseat, then I will be doing better than every day prior to this.

Thanks for commenting on my blogs and for stopping by! I too am 46 and we can do this even at this age,after all 46 is young in the whole scheme of things. The wonderful thing about the body is that we can keep reinventing ourselves and transforming our bodies to be what we want them to be. It is hard, but the effort is soooo worth it! I added you as a friend because we are all in this together! We are only as old as we let ourselves feel! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hi! Thank you so much for the comment on my blog. I'm sorry you got hurt too, but I'm so glad that you were able to find a way to fit some exercise in, too. Here is hoping we're both functioning 100% soon! emoticon

Welcome to SP, and thank you so much for your comment on my blog. I am in the same headspace as you mention in your intro at the top of your page. I have worked hard at losing weight and succeeded, only to find myself back at my starting weight and then to have to watch as I gain even more weight. Well, I have decided to stop watching and to do something about it, but like you, I am feeling very discouraged and finding my motivation very inconsistent. My way of thinking right now is "Take it 1 day at a time". Make some plans for yourself, something small like drinking 8 cups of water every day. Try to include moving every day, even if it is only for 10 minutes. Keep checking in here too!

emoticon Welcome to Spark. You have taken an important step on your journey by joining!
I've been a member almost 3 years. I made fantastic progress and lost 100 pounds in the first year BUT I became careless about nutrition and exercise and have gained a lot of the pounds back! I became disgusted with myself and closed my Spark account, but soon realized I NEEDED to be here. I'm back using the nutrition and exercise trackers now - they are so important. The sense of community and the friendships I have made here keep me going!
Explore the site, make your Sparkpage if you havenít, join teams, and make friends. You will find this site an amazing place full of encouragement, inspiration, advice, and support.
Please let me know if there is anything I can help you with.
Good luck!
Sheila
