I am overweight and I have to do something about it.

Wednesday, July 18, 2012

I DVRed The Weight of the Nation and finally had the courage to watch the first episode. I have to face that I am obese and killing myself with poor choices. On top of that, these choices are not making me very happy either. I do not like being this heavy, but I don't do much about it.

At this moment, my first step is to choose not eat anything else today. My second step was to think about how to jumpstart yet another weight loss streak. I have the Spark Diet book on my phone/Kindle so I took a look about what to do to jump start and am attempting to try some of these strategies now and tomorrow. I am trying to get myself plugged into Spark and the supportive community. If you are reading this. I wish you success on your weightloss journey. I hope you will send good thoughts my way. I'm logging off now to try to engage in 10 minutes of exercise.

    I agree with BOOSMOM03...tracking your food is very helpful. It is not just about keeping track of your calories. It is about learning how food fits into your life. Being able to look back on a whole week's worth of food gives a person a new perspective.

    It's hard to get started. It's even harder to STAY started, especially when you feel like you have SO far to go. Been there, done that. All I can tell you is what has worked for me - start SMALL. 10 minutes of exercise is a good start. It's more than zero!! I'd also recommend tracking food intake, if you aren't already. Even if you go over calories for a while, it's good to see those numbers, to really evaluate what you're putting in your body, and to start finding healthier choices.

I will send good thoughts your way for sure. I've been up and down this road a few times myself, and am also bound and determined to make it work this round.
