I have been gone so long that I forgot my password. Here I go again, still struggling with my weight. I am such a failure at weight loss. I just don't understand how it is so easy to gain weight and keep the weight on. I must do better. So, I am trying again. Yes.....obviously, I am not a quitter. Just fail at trying. But how do I know if this time is really the time? Will I lose weight? I am trying to make sure I continue with sparkpeople. I seem to do so much better when I come to this site on a daily basis. It is like being accountable. I am making my goal to check in on sparkpeople every day. yay!

    Lose that word "failure". If you keep beating yourself up with language like that, you're sure to be heading down the wrong path.
Set small goals (and not necessarily goals that involve the scale), and use non-food rewards frequently along the way. Some goals might include drinking 8 8-oz glasses of water each day, eating 5 servings of fruits and/or veggies each day, doing 15 minutes of exercise 4 times a week.... Find and participate in SparkTeams that share your interests. Find a SparkBuddy. And talk nicely to and about yourself!

    You're only a failure if you don't get back up and try again. You can do it this time!

I've been gone for some time. I'm not giving up. So, here I go again and this time for good. I was just reading my previous blog entitled, "I ran, I ran" and I am so disappointed for not continuing on with my success. Life got to me and I got stressed out. Well, life happens and I still have to look out for me. So......let's do it right this time!!!


I ran!! I ran!!

This past Thursday evening, I decided to take my daughter to the park and walk on the walking trail. After walking a few minutes, I decided to try to jog a little. I kept walking and told myself I can't jog because I am too big. Well, I started jogging a little and then kept jogging. I KEPT JOGGING!!!! I was so surprised. I shocked myself. I could tell that my lungs were in much better shape and of course, I know I have a long way to go. But......on Thursday I jogged as far as I could and then I walked the rest of the way a few laps around the trail.

    Great job! Sometimes you just have to try and jog, even though you think you can't do it. I've done that a few times, and now I just can't wait to jog for 15-30 mins non-stop.

Keep it up!

I joined weight watchers

Sunday, July 13, 2008

Well, I joined Weight Watchers. I believe it works and I need to be accountable for my actions. I hope that I will finally lose this weight. Gosh....I am so tired of being fat. Just so tired of it. I have accomplished so much. I am independent and successful. How come this fat won't leave me alone? Well, I am ready to do something about it. I must. I am 40 now and I can't keep this up. I don't want this to make me live less years or become a diabetic. Help me Father!

  Weight Watchers does work. Don't let your feeling bad keep you from meetings or keep you from sharing. The face to face is wonderful. When I went back to WW last Fall, I went on a Sunday and then went to a meeting each day that week to find a leader and group that had a vibe I could relate to.
In yoga they say to you 'engage your legs, your fingers. ..'
Engage! Don't feel you're bad. You are engaged in life and that will work for you.

Keep up the good work.

i've been bad

Sunday, June 08, 2008

I have no excuse. Excuses are tools of intolerance, therefore I have no excuse.

I gained weight. I was down to 280, down a few inches, a couple of dress sizes less......I was being successful. One life changing moment in my life and a few months later.....I am back up to 310. I stopped drinking water.......the cheap tea from McDonald's was the replacement!! Bad choices, little exercise, no yoga and just being careless with food has made me see a weight that I thought I would never see. I am ashamed of myself. I need motivation. I am scared. I am tired. I am desperate and I am almost broke. Gas prices mainly are my unexpected price increase and decrease in work. I have 2 jobs but no husband now. So I need to be home more with my girls. God please have mercy. Show me the way.
I had to drop my gym membership. I can't afford Weight Watchers or any other program. So I need to become accountable somehow.Any ideas my dear Spark Family???
