My fitness journey is filled with so many ups and downs, I should start charging admission for entry to the theme park! The downs are all due to my lack of motivation, though. I've never been the "fit type" and wasn't athletic in high school (I was the singer, not the sprinter). Making an active decision to make healthier choices AND *gasp* workout have me totally outside of my comfort zone. I've done Weight Watchers (who hasn't?) but I could never stick to it for more than 6-7 months or 30 pounds, whichever came first.

I'm sick of not being comfortable in my own skin and I really want to fit into a bikini this summer. You'd think that knowing that would serve as more motivation but I have my good days and bad WEEKS. My weigh in is tomorrow and, since 4 out of 7 days this week were me eating badly, I already know the scale will not be kind. I lost 4 pounds but I'm almost positive I've gained it all back with my binging. I tried power walking today (my first workout of the week) and couldn't even do 1/2 mile because of shin splints.

Suffice it to say, I'm pretty bummed out but also trying to stay on the realistic side. I didn't gain all this unsightly weight overnight so there's no way I can lose it that quickly; but isn't it nice to imagine?!

    Good luck on your weigh in and you know what, this is not like the last time. Before you would just give up. But now you on here on spark, venting, getting support, making the effort. Doesn't matter how many times you start, just as long as you finish!

    girl, i SO know where you are coming from! i feel the same way SO often. know that you are not alone! the big thing to remember is that it is about the JOURNEY, the destination is great, but enjoy the ride there. i have learned that things that are difficult to achieve are more meaningful to me! and sometimes, the roadblocks are there to see how bad we want something. i can see by what you have written, you are a STRONG, PASSIONATE woman! you can do this! emoticon

    Having shin splints are rough! Maybe try a hot bath and relax those legs? Or if you have pool access it's a great workout and no pressure on your body emoticon Stationary bikes are good too :) Or get a massage - yeah!

Don't worry about the scale - you are doing great! You are eating more mindfully and getting exercise in which means muscle and losing inches. Binges can get you down but just focus on stopping them as soon as possible and focusing on how great tomorrow's eating and exercise will be.

Another sparker recommended only weighing in every two weeks and keep track of your daily accomplishments and exercise on a calendar. emoticon emoticon
