if I can just make it one day............disco
uraged, but hopeful

Monday, August 13, 2012

I am truly dragging here. Not to whine, but I'm back where I was 6 months again, again, again. This morning was another resolve, to just make it one day with logging in, counting what I put in my mouth, even if I go over.

The promise helps.

I've done my running, logged my intake, and now here closing in on the afternoon I'm confident I will make it. Just one day
Then another
Then another

I have no reason to give up but I get so tired of trying and failing. When I think to myself that this is just so silly, I have to stop and tell myself the truth. My health is NOT silly. Getting healthy is serious business. Choosing health is really the only wise thing to do. Just wish food wasn't so delicious and available.

So glad Spark is here......and all of you keeping me sane when I want to jump into a mountain of icecream and burrow my way to the other side.

    Here at 10:06 pm I have jogged and logged and stayed the course for this day. What a joy to have all of your messages pop into my email box as the day progressed. I feel blessed. Think I will print them out as encouragement. Thank you!

    One of the wonderful things about SparkPeople is that there are always people who get it and understand and will encourage you no matter where you are at. As someone else already said, every moment is a new chance to do better.

Never Quit Pledge

Today, I promise I will not quit.

I pledge that no matter, how many ups and downs I pass through, I will continue on my journey.

I pledge to make a NEW START today, and forgive myself for my past, and to stop being so critical of myself.

I pledge to take control of myself, to stop making excuses, and stop blaming other people or situations.

I pledge to treat myself as I would my best friend, because that is who I am.

I pledge to stay in the race and to be a WINNER!

I struggle too and am just getting back on track after more than two weeks of company. A few days I just didn't try very hard, and I could not get my usual exercise the last week. That didn't help!
You are worth it and YOU CAN DO IT!!!

    you are not alone. We all struggle. Currently I have gained back some of the weight that I lost. When I lost my job I found myself back into some of my old habits due to stress and emotional eating. but awareness is a big help. I think having a place like spark to share your celebrations and set backs helps to keep going. yesterday I made a menu and went to the grocery store. I kept the list simple and realistic. and felt good that I did something productive. All we can do is keep trying. Set back may come but the key is moving forward no matter how small the step.

    I agree with everyone who posted. I spent a year not on sparkpeople making the same resolves and getting continually discouraged. When I found spark I took off and did really well then started hitting road blocks. One day here four days there another week here all off program with no exercising. But I kept coming back. And it works. If you work the program the program will work. Whet really helped me each time was finding a challenge to join. Being on a team and being accountible motivated me. One time I also joined the 5k your way and since I am a schedule follower I was not breaking the rules so I followed through to the finish since once commited like that I have a hard time quitting. You will find your pace too as long as you keep making strides.
