like swimming upstream

Monday, January 12, 2009

This is so hard this weight loss effort, especially when u have a friend who had gastric bypass and lost 20 lbs in like 3 days.
The daily struggle, just to keep yourself from drinking a soda, or eating a piece of chocolate. Why do some ppl have this life long race to run, and others do not?
I am getting so I feel like I am swimming upstream against the current in a tidal wave.
Maybe tomorrow I will feel better, but to lose 1 lb, its such a fight for me.

    Hang in there!! This is a journey.... Perhaps you can give yourself one "small" goal for today... (i.e. park your car in a spot further than you normally would and walk the extra distance).... then, once you've done it, you will have been successful!!! It really is about making small, but lasting, changes!!

I just started spark people (for the second time) a couple of weeks ago... my first goal was to log on daily and find something that inspires me... (that was it!!) And, since I started small, I have been extremely successful (I log on faithfully)...

so, this week, I started using the nutrition tracker... (I actually LOVE it)!! And it is amazing how much it has affected my eating habits (remember, I haven't yet set a goal to really manage calories, etc.)... but just logging it has led me to eating less (and more healthy)...

So, be kind to yourself!!!
