Fail To Lose!

Sunday, August 04, 2013

Hello Everyone! It's 2:30 AM and I am sitting here beating myself up because I have not really tried to lose any weigh. No motivation at all. No change of eating things I know are not good for me. I look at all the positive blogs, but still not getting it. I am so tired of being tired.

    As the other two Sparkers have said, make one small change until you're comfortable and it becomes a regular part of your lifestyle. Add in a little bit here and there as you get use to it. Exercise a 5 minute walk, even inside your house if you're not ready to take it outside or to a gym. My sister walks inside her house for 30 minutes every day. She started with 10 and built her way up. She has MS and felt comfortable only at home but she's moving. Start with a 5 minute walk and "x" ounces of water a day for a week. If you successfully do that add something else. You can do this we're here to support you. But the main thing is that you have to make a choice to start.

    I agree with KACAR51, small changes are the best way to start. I started with eating whole wheat bread instead of white, eating fresh fruit 2-3 times a week, and cutting back on soda. Once I got used to the those small changes, I added a few more. Sometimes the smaller the changes, the easier they are to stick with. Hang in there. emoticon emoticon

    Take it i small steps! The first thing I did is stop buying things that are bad for me! If it is not in the house you can't eat it!
Then I started buying more fruits and veggies and finding great ways to cook them!
Drinking water really helps too! You CAN do this! Just don't try to do everything at one time! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

My Journey Never Ends!

Thursday, September 22, 2011

Well I must say this is the first time I looked at how far i have come, before relearning how to LOVE myself! So many roads I have traveled to get to where I am. I have not always had problems liking me, up until 5 yrs ago,I was caught up in a shooting, that set me back about 7 yrs now, of not taking care of myself. I have been in therapy for those last 7 years, trying to get my mind connected with my body. That might sound strange, but Mental Illness stopped all actions in my body. I have C.O.P.D., which is control, I have been off Oxygen for 4 ys now.I have type 2 diabetes, which is not in control, due to weigh,High Blood Pressure, PTSS. My main goal is to get back in the work-place, which I am starting a 6 week program, and 6 month Internship....Yea! I am so glad I am no longer STUCK! I know that there will be alot of help here, and look forward to meeting new friends!
