If knowledge were all it took to lose weight, I'd be the skinniest person alive. I have read and reread so many different ideas and ways to do this. I keep trying to tweek and have some success on my own, but it just seems that I consistently do OK for a week or maybe even two and then I'm falling into the trap of "splurging" shall I call it.
Then you have to decide, am I gonna watch calories and eat whatever, or am I going to try and eat healthy. I've found that other than veggies and fruits, which I have been using for almost all of my snacks, everything else throws you over the limit on something. If you are following WW then the protein rich foods seem to use a lot of the points allowed. If you follow calories, then you can't have any of your faves.
Then I start looking at Recipes and think Oh I'll try that, but then I end up cooking for myself and then the rest of my family.
Oh what to do what to do.
I was doing really well on the exercise for a couple of weeks, now here I am AGAIN, slacking on it. Why can I not be disciplined enough to continue on. Why can I never have enough WANT, or Willpower to get through the tough phases and continue on. I've been hanging around this current weight for a year now. It's totally ridiculous that I cannot get motivated long enough to make another 10 pounds go away. I so wanted to have another 20 pounds gone by July 15 and yet, here I am, I've lost my motivation, my desire-although always there-just not strong enough.
I know I need to up my exercise from just walking. Was considering joining Curves to see if I could get some strength training in that way, but when I asked about Curves on this site many felt I would outgrow their program quickly and it would not do me any good. So looms another decision, do I join Curves, do I join the gym, do I try to keep doing my Leslie Sansone DVD's and get some strength training there? Decisions, decisions. I'm no good at making them and I'm no good at sticking to them. I'm always reinventing the wheel if I may.
