Hard to stay motivated all the time. Sometimes I feel light "what the heck" why keep struggling? I see some improvements but really not enough. I am doing a lot more physically but weight loss I am just not seeing any improvement. I have had a lot of health issues lately. Sometimes I wonder Why do I keep fighting for this. Why don't I just set back and let things be. I can get out around the place, go for short walks. I am never going to do the things I used to do. No more hiking, camping out or climbing mountains. It is a bummer to get older and have an old broken body. I will never have a lean healthy body.
So why keep pushing. I guess because I want to do more. I want to be able to go for walks at the lake and in the woods. I want to be able to enjoy activities with my friends and family. I don't want to have to use a walker or be stuck in a wheel chair. I don't want to be dependent on others. I guess I am just hard headed and independent. That's what my husband used to say.
No I'm not going to quit. I am going to keep working on losing weight and getting stronger and more flexible. I know it will be slow and lots of days I will have to rest but I know I have to stay busy to be healthy. I know I have lots of friends and lots of support here on Spark People. I know I can do It.
Its Friday evening and the start of another weekend. How will you cope? There are games to go to, back yard get-togethers and just down time. For many of us the weekends are the hardest. We manage all week to stay within our nutritonal range but come the week end all bets are off. Why there are so many healthy foods out there to choose from.
Take a look and choose your favorites, eat healthy and enjoy.
Choose healthy and have a great weekend. I know I will.
