Okay so I first created my Spark People account back in February. It's now November and I have yet to make any progress. I was doing so well when I first joined, working out everyday and eating healthier. Now here I am, many months later and 20 lbs heavier. What's wrong with me? I can't keep traveling down this path. But I don't feel happy or motivated. I wish I could be that person who has their stuff figured out. Instead i'm a fat lost girl who hates a majority of her life. I guess in the end I need to stop making excuses. So here I am, ready once again to try this thing out. Make positive changes and take control of my life.

    My friend I have been in your situation many times. I am 60 years old and still have times like you described. I simply try to hang on to the fact that I am bigger than this attitude and it will pass.

Chin up, you're here now so that is a positive change. You are so worth the time and effort you will put forth, so make some small changes to get control of your life and keep going, even when you slip. This from a mud covered at times oldie.

Weekends Suck!

Friday, March 02, 2012

I hate the weekends! Most people would tend to disagree with me though. My job is always ten times busier on Friday and Saturday, so that doesn't leave me much time to workout. Although maybe i'm just using my job as an excuse? If i'm going to stick with my goals and succeed I need to stop saying I CAN'T do something and just DO it! The only person i'm hurting is myself.

Also, it's been 4 days without soda/energy drinks. The headaches are finally starting to kick in. Thank god for ibuprofen!!

  I hate weekends too. They are tough to stay on track. That's great that you have gone 4 days without the soda/energy drinks. Keep up the great work.

Getting this thing started!!

Wednesday, February 29, 2012

I'm done being "fat" Melissa. During 11th grade(2006) I was at my lowest weight. Not only did I feel amazing, I was wearing min-skirts!! Now i'm lucky if I can squeeze into a size 16!! Enough is enough. I've gone 2 days without soda/energy drinks and I've worked out. It's a start. For once i'm also in a very healthy and loving relationship. My boyfriend is wonderful. Sadly i'm very self conscious around him. Hopefully i'll find the motivation to stick with it this time.

I've also added a photo of me for thinspiration!!
