I have become very discouraged over the last couple of weeks. As I'm not seeing the losses that I need to keep me motivated. I look at the successes of my fellow Sparkers and I know that it's possible to lose the weight but I don't know how to get there. My day is so hectic that I have no energy to exercise by the end of the day. I work my butt off at work, rush to pick up my little one, get home cook dinner, try to do some cleaning, spend time with the kids and then plop down to sleep. Where does the time go?? I know that exercising or the lack thereof is part of my problem. But how do I fit it in?? The area in which I work is not an area that I can walk during my lunch hour.
I have cut out fried foods, beefed up my veggies and cut out fast food establishments considerably. Even when I do eat out, I try to stick to the lighter side of the menu and eliminate half of the bread, if not all at McDonalds or BK.
Since starting SP at the end of August 2008, I have lost roughly 7 lbs. Yes, it's a loss but I am a little over 2 months into this and wanted to see more. What else can I do? I hear that I should drink water then I hear that I should not drink all that water b/c it will increase my belly weight. I DON'T NEED ANYMORE BELLY WEIGHT!! Should I try some type of weight loss pill or supplement to help me?? I want to lose weight so badly but I don't know what else to do. This always seem to be my pattern, I start out strong, enthusied and motivated to lose weight but once I get into it...the thrill subsides.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, as I really want to tough this out. I have 2 beautiful children that I want to have the energy to play with and be there for. I'm afraid that my family's medical history will start to wreak havoc in my life if I don't change now!
