How to start ...

Monday, April 30, 2012

I don't know what is wrong with me! I've done weight watchers in the past and NEVER had a problem following it. Now I just can't seem to get it together and for some reason I don't understand THIS program either!!

I want to lose this weight so bad. I'm sick of my C-PAP machine and want to stop taking High Blood Pressure meds. I just can't seem to put it all together. I guess it doesn't help to not have much money and not be able to afford to buy all the "special" food. Can anyone explain to me why when they don't add sugar, or leave out the fat the food costs MORE?!

I thought having my family live with me would make it easier to cook because I/we would be cooking for 3 - 4 and finding recipes for 1 is so hard. But no - didn't work out the way I had hoped at all. There is never enough healthy food and they only cook things that are not so healthy.

I don't know how to get a handle on this but I know I have got to get control. I'm frustrated and discouraged!!

On an up note, I babysat for my twin granddaughters, age 9 months, this Saturday! They are the cutest little girls in the world. I know some of you may think yours are, but seriously, mine are! LOL

Okay - on with my day. Tomorrow I hit the gym again and hope to be in there everyday. Waiting to hear from my cardiologist about my stress test last week before I go back. Wed. is senior citizen day at Kroger so I will go shop for some food then. Just can't afford to buy for all of us and yet they eat my food!!

    I signed up last Wednesday and I still find it a bit confusing, but until yesterday I was mainly trying to get to know this site and paying attention to my habits. So My first real day of my new ME started today.I am using a diet program similar to weight watchers but I am also tracking my foot on here. I just find it easier to use the other programm when I am not at home. Earlier today I noticed under the lifestyle section the topic Spark diet. I kinda wished I would have seen it earlier because it a good way for people that are confused about this program to get started. It doesn't want you to change every little bad habit of yours but slowly explains how little steps can change your life how you can benefit. I believe the creators intended that you read a chapter every week and try to put the topic of the chapter into use. For example, in the first stage you are supposed to get started by watching your eating habits and how you can change or improve them.
Here is the link for the Spark Diet and I really hope it will help you to be less confused about this site emoticon
