Motivation is a grand idea!! That is all it is you know. It is an idea that pops into your head that makes you decide that your going to do something. It can arise from another persons actions or words, from other idea's of who or what you want to be, it can be triggered by senses such as sight, sound etc. and you know what...I am to say that people at motivate me. Thank you!!!

So what motivates you? Here is my list of motivators!

1. My children. I want them to be happy and healthy and I want to set a good example for them. I also want to be healthy enough to enjoy them.

2. SPARKPEOPLE!! I have met some very wonderful people here, two of them in person. They make me accountable. I love that. I love the idea that I can't say no because I would be letting some one else down. Not that I have wanted to say no yet...because I actually crave getting together to walk now. I can't wait until the next time I walk or hike, and I love that too. Its nice when you have such wonderful people to encourage and motivate you. I thank God for bringing me to Sparkpeople.

3. People at work who spend their lunch hours walking, going to yoga and making up challenges to see who can walk the most steps. I really need to join that challenge now that I am walking every day 2-3 times a day!!

4. Photo's. I like to look at photo's of people and places. That makes me want to be fit, and to look beautiful because I want to enjoy certain experiences that make me uncomfortable because of my weight!!

So, thats what motivates me. Thank you Sparkpeople...and I don't mean the site...I mean the people on the site. You are all so wonderful!!

I am very excited about being a part of Spark People. I am excited about meeting my goals. BUT, I have been a little down lately. It seems that I have not been able to find the time to excersize. I work until 7 pm, so it is very hard to squeeze in. I don't know many people, I am a military wife so, needless to say I move so much that my friends are scattered throughout the US.

I need help. I need a buddy. And I am wondering if there is anyone that might be close to the Meridian area in Englewood. Someone who say, could meet me and walk with me on my 45 minute lunch break. Maybe some one I can go hiking with or to the gym with.

I hate to be alone. And since my husband is not an active person, I typically end up doing whatever he is doing, which usually involves a lot of nothing.

If there is ANYONE who may be in that area, or on Buckley AFB who I could buddy up with...please drop me a line. I am in desperate need of a picker upper, a buddy, and some one with similar goals as I have.

Thanks for reading!!!

    I'm in the UK, so i can't be your excersise buddy but i don't have one either so all i can do is make a suggestion. I have invested in a few excersise dvd's at night once my son is in bed i pop my tea on to cook slowly and while it does i put one on and let rip. they are usually broken up into little chunks so you can choose how much time you spend doing it and even which parts. something is always better than nothing and because you are doing it to a dvd it decreases the feelking of excersising alone. Good luck!

The End....

Monday, June 25, 2007

This is the end of my struggles. I just know it!

Yesterday, I joined SparkPeople. Today I began my new diet. I am also began taking Alli, a new FDA approved fat blocker along with multi vitamins and B12.

I have compiled my own notebook for a weight loss journal that I have assembled to meet my needs. I have found those store bought books don't have the things I need. I went to Sparkpeople and made a menu for the week, and a grocery list. I went to and printed their free journals and log pages as well as the cover page and tips. I have put the cover page in the front of my notebook, and assembled it all to fit my needs. ( I don't and never have used Phentormine, but the website is helpful).

This is the end of my past and the beginning of a new me. I am going to be successful, and I am going to win this battle!!


Bad Day

Monday, June 25, 2007

Today was bad day for me. Had to work at AMFAM over the weekend. Today all systems were down and I began to get extremely tired, and bored. Tried to keep myself busy on the internet for a while, but didn't work so well. At lunch I walked to the vending machine. BAD idea. Got one of those dinner buckets with potatoes and ham. Wasn't very good, but I ate it anyway. Then..I had nuts. Went to the mall and I ate a whole box of a 2 entree dinner, 2 snicker doodles, and then went to Champs and had some chips and dip and mudslide!! What is wrong with me? I feel sick now. I just want to throw up.

    I just want you to know that you have company as far as making bad food decisons. I have done the same thing so many times that I can not count them. I don't know why sometimes I binge out until I feel sick or worse - actually get sick from eating wayyyyyyyyyyyyyy to much. Sometimes I feel like an overstuffed ballon - begging for a pin to prick me so I can explode and feel all better.

I remind myself that I can start fresh but it usually takes something like a laxative to help me do this because I have done a system overload and my body shuts down probably because it is in shock. This yo-yo -ing is not good for my body so I have prayed for self-control and I do much better now. However, every now and then I lose it and it happens again.

Don't give up. It is tough but you can do it - live healthy and lose weight. We both can do it!!
