how do people stay motivated for the long haul? i read blogs of people that lose a lot of weight and i just cant figure out how they motivate themselves on a daily basis.
i guess to start out, i am gonna concentrate of the way i feel after i eat certain foods. the effect these foods have on my energy level. that way, instead of telling myself that i have to eat this or that cause i am suppose to, i can say, i eat that cause it makes me feel better.
i will also concentrate on positive things that happen to me on a daily basis. the smallest of things, i will take note of and blog about it. i am having problems with self esteem right now, so this will help me.
i will blog every evening about the days events. the foods i ate and positive things. maybe i should keep a little journal during day so i dont forget anything

i am struggling with a lot of feelings right now. i am really in a funk. my sister died a week before thanksgiving and it is making me realize how short life is. right now, i feel like a failure. i dont see anything through. i am 50 and 190 lbs. i need to lose weight and i need to follow through on excercise. i want to live the rest of my life fulfilled and excited. i dont want to sit on sidelines and watch life pass me by on couch.
problem is, i dont know where to start. i need to make short term goals and i just dont know where to start. i am reading other blogs and trying to get some ideas.
anyone with ideas to help me, let me know

just a short note before i leave for work.
todays challenge is to not eat after dinner. i am gonna modify that a bit because i work afternoons and i need something after work. i am gonna have a light snack of cottage cheese and berries. my motto is gonna be: eat that or dont eat anything. after i eat it, kitchen is closed
sometimes when i eat a snack after work, it opens the door for total loss of control. i can eat all healthy food, but i just cant stop eating it. even tho it is all healthy food, i still eat too much of it.
i made some chicken pot pie soup from skinny taste for my dinner tonight. i am gonna eat it all week different ways. today, i have soup with ritz crackers. tmr, i will make a light biscuit and put on top,. later on, i might have a sandwich with it .
i am off for a quick walk before work.
