I have had so many restarts on this website, but I had a scare with possible kidney problems (protein in my kidneys). My dad's side of the family have had serious kidney problems and I don't want to follow in their footsteps. Just went to the diabetic clinic today (I have type 2 diabetes) and was given "the talk" about exercising and losing weight so I decided to start tracking my food again as of today, and I am going to start exercising regularly as of now. I have been scared sufficiently by my kidney scare to get my act together. Due to meds that I am on I will not be able to get down to a weight that I imagine myself being at, but I now realize that my goal is to be fit, and healthy rather than skinny. Today is Day 1.

Life is certainly interesting. I have started my own blog. http://journey-into-my-life.simplesite.com

that is a quote from Tony Horton, creator of the P90X workout program. After reading his new book I have had to re-examine why I want to change my lifestyle and lose weight. Before it was just to look great (which is still one of my whys) but now I want to do a complete lifestyle change and lose about 60 lbs because I want to be alive to see my grandchildren, and to be able to enjoy life more with my husband and daughter. When they go out to do something, I stay at home because I can not keep up with them. Also I have various illnesses mental and physical which tend to get in the way of living a healthy, happy life. Exercise and good nutrition would greatly improve on how I'm living and feeling.
I'm about to start exercising again and counting calories. Just injured my foot a couple days ago, so I guess I'll get started on nutrition first as of today. Exercise will come in a couple of days. I feel I have nothing to lose, but everything to gain, so I'm going to do my best, and forget the rest!

I joined another weightloss site, because I had one of their videos. I won't say the name, but all I wanted was some help, and all I get is pressured to by shakes, suppliments, and tons of other things. All I want is support doing their video. I'm not interested in shakes and suppliments. I prefer getting my nutrition naturally. The reason I liked this website is that you get a one on one coach who corresponds with you constantly. He seems like a nice guy, but he's just trying to make a living. I feel stressed and let down. I have forgotten about spark for the last couple of weeks because of this new site, but I am now going to try to get back into this again, and forget the other site. I don't need the pressure.

I read the title of this blog in a fitness magazine. I am a perfectionist, and if I don't think I can do it just right, I won't do it at all. That includes eating healthy, staying within my calorie range, and especially exercising. I have this image in my head of what I want to end up looking like, and it looks like I expect to have some "perfect" fitness model body that has been photoshopped in fitness magazines. This particular quote that I read really got to me. "Strive for progress not perfection" I'm striving for perfection and that will never be an end result that will happen for me. I have decided to strive for progress. First I want to see my endurance improve with cardio, and see some definition in my arms with weights. That's all the progress I'm going to look forward to right now. I want to lose weight through healthy eating and staying in my calorie range, along with regular exercise. That is all I can do. I will not stand on the scale every morning any more, I will go to once a week. What weight comes off by trying my best, is what will come off. I haven't set a goal as to how much I want to see come off every week right now, because I'm feeling overwhelmed enough about the calorie counting and exercise. What happens happens especially during this holiday season. It's stressful enough trying to stop the all or nothing thinking, and the constant scrutinizing that I do to myself every day in front of the mirror. I have been down and out with bronchitis and wrist surgery for the past month, so Monday I start. I still need a few more days to recover from the bronchitis and the wrist still needs a little babying.
So until Monday, I'm logging my food, and eating healthy. I feel a little better all ready.
