Starting Over

Tuesday, September 20, 2011

Again and again and again. The cycle has not been broken. Life intervenes. I get off track and I come back heavier than ever! I feel great defeat. Will I ever discover the real reason for my obesity? I know the cause is eating more junky foods than I should and eating less healthy foods than I should. I know that the portions I eat are too large. I know what a healthy meal should look like. There has to be an underlying cause. I know all the right things to do and know that I am the one putting my health at risk yet I continue. I certainly wouldn't allow my family members to do something this destructive! So why do I allow myself? How do I end this cycle? I have been so certain in the past that this time would be different and yet here I am again - defeated and heavier. . . and disgusted with myself.

    you may need to take one small step at a time. Pick one thing to change....such as just recording what you eat for maybe 2 weeks. just eat what you normally eat and just record the facts. after that then look at your calorie recommendation from spark and try to eat within those limits.......don't worry about healthy or not...just one step at a time...gradually add another area to work on ..planned exercise (start small and simple ) no need to pull any your injuries and start slow( ask dr for exercise advise)
you are doing great.......just don't overwhelm yourself...Rome wasn't built in a day. Love yourself and be kind to yourself. wishing you peace and happiness in your adventures. emoticon emoticon

    When the going get's tough, the tough keep going. The key is to NEVER give up. You may have to start over and over again, but NEVER give up. emoticon

    So I go on my normal walk this morning with my neighbor and I pulled a quadricep muscle! Are you kidding me!!! Argh! How am I supposed to lose weight if I can't even walk! Even more disappointed with myself now!
