Ok, I've never done this before so bear with me.....I tried sparkpeople almost a year ago and after about 2 weeks gave up because I was too tired, too emotional, too fat, too stressed and whatever other excuse I could come up with. So I wallowed for a few months, then got a little bit of counselling, a little bit of self hypnosis and my best motivation to date, a chocolate lab puppy. I've been at it for 2 weeks and have hardly given cheating a thought..WOW...another first!
I'm pretty sure the weight I have started to lose is being transfered by osmosis or something to my lab, lol. There is nothing like the pitiful look of a dog that is denied his walk. It is definately not worth the guilt refusing him. So out I go, 3 times a day...actually it's more like 5 times a day because I have 2 older toy sized dogs that also expect a walk! The lab, however is far more demanding! Three, at least my three dogs is too many to walk at one time so I have to get out more, regardless of the weather.
It's been a couple of weeks since I have been back at it but I think I have finally given myself the tools I need to succeed!
Wish me luck!
