Starting Over.... Again
Wednesday, August 06, 2008
I am starting over again with my SP diet plan. I did great for almost six months, then when I didn't meet my first goal of 50lbs by a certain date, I got frustrated. Compound that with the fact that I have been battling some major health issues and emotional ones too; well, I just sort of copped out. My weight slowly but surely crept back up and I now am 12 lbs heavier than I was in May!!!!
So.... I am starting over. My daughter will be leaving for school again next week, and I will be home alone again. I will have to make sure not to give in to emotional eating. Being alone and lonely makes the fridge seem like a long lost friend. I also plan to get more active. I had hoped to do that all along but between my health and a very long history of no exercise--- that didn't happen. Now is the time to put that into action!!!
I am a very big girl-- I can't go work out at Curves yet. Too big for the machines, but I do have a gazelle here at home and there is plenty of wide open spaces to walk or ride a bike. Not to mention I have a ton of exercise videos in my entertainment center. All I lack is proper motivation!
I would so love to meet that goal of 75lbs this year and I am half way there, so with my good friends here at SP and encouragement from my family and friends I can do it. My biggest enemy is ME! I defeat myself all the time! I know what I need to do-- I just don't do it. It is almost like I don't want to believe in myself or I don't want to succeed but that really isn't the case at all.
Yet, here I am--- starting over again, with hopes of doing much better this time!
