One room at a time....

Tuesday, January 15, 2013

Another reason I love my suggested to me last week .. I decided to pick a room in my house and clean it today...I chose my bedroom (since that's where you are supposed to feel relaxed) I got up early this morning and just started cleaning ...I feel great my room looks great and I racked up 2550 steps on my fitbit cleaning my room.... and did I mention I feel GREAT! emoticon

I like that system. It works for me when I feel overwhelmed and want to get something accomplished.

Sometimes....(like today ) I sit and think about how much of my life I have spent trying to change my eating habits and how many times I have succeeded in losing weight only to let it come highest was 260 and my lowest was 129 .... I lost 60 I gained 30 I lost 75 I gained 130 I lost 100 I gained 80 ...those are all such large and drastic numbers but, that is how I spent 1996-2010 .....for the last 2 years I have focused more on losing a little maintaining it losing a little more maintaining it ....and so on ....In hopes that eventually I will get back to 129 and be able to maintain it.

I know I'm not alone ...I know many many others that have the same struggles... emoticon

    You are among friends. It's hard, otherwise Spark would not exist and heart disease, diabetes, etc. would not exist. Nobody said this was easy.

One friend to another. You can do this, you proved to yourself that you can. Key is to own your choices and know that this is not a race to the fastest goal. I would rather lose slowly and know I could maintain than lose very quickly with uncertainty in my future.

You can do this, I am 100% confident you can; keep plugging away and seek to understand your mind and why you make choices.

    You are so right. I am new to this journey but I am learning that it is such a HUGE struggle. At least we all know we are in this struggle together. You are doing amazing!!

    Looking back just lets you know you can do it. Your problem isn't in losing the weight, it's maintaining the weight loss. Your going to get there and when you do, just remember most of us on Spark gain weight easily. We have to count our calories even after we get there just to maintain. And the fact that you are learning to maintain your goals, means that this time will be for keeps! emoticon

    How about baking some high fiber muffins? You could add something to the recipes you've already tried or try something new. Or, go back to the Fiber One bars. Do you still like those? How about veggies or fruit, or oatmeal?

I know what you mean about the emoticons...they have burgers and fries...why no chips?

    I like this concept of "the last time I was at this weight."
