I've Not Only Fallen Off the Wagon, It's Run Over Me!

Tuesday, October 16, 2012

I have really fallen away badly from Sparkpeople. And I know it too! The scale and my body can tell. Discipline has never been a strong virtue with me. I start all gung-ho on a project, but eventually it falls by the way-side. I had wished that my healthy goals wouldn't end like that, but sure enough....

So, I'm here to start over again. Perhaps I can overcome my lack of discipline by not seeing the whole big picture but focusing on one day at a time, and one choice at a time. I know I'm in the right place to start over. My friends here are so supportive and encouraging, and I know they will give me a kick in the butt when needed too. haha ***For the next month, my goal is to get back in the habit of tracking my food every day.***That's all. Just track. If I complete that, I'll move on to something more. And I count on everyone here to hold me accountable. I am looking forward to success as I get back on the Spark Wagon.

    HEY MUNCHKIN!
    I HAVE HAD PRETTY GOOD SUCCESS THIS YEAR. I HAD LOST OVER 50 POUNDS BEFORE I DROPPED OUT AND RE-GAINED 19 OF THEM. HOW I DID IT WAS SO SIMPLE. I CANNOT LOOK AT THE TOTAL AMOUNT OF WEIGHT I HAVE TO LOSE. IT IS JUST TOO OVERWHELMING. SO I GO FOR 10% AT A TIME. WHEN I REACH THAT, THEN I WILL CHANGE MY TICKER FOR ANOTHER 10%. I ALSO CANNOT EVEN LOOK AT A WHOLE DAYS MEALS. I GO FROM BREAKFAST AND SAY, "NOW - LET ME JUST MAKE IT TO LUNCH WITHOUT CHEATING ON SOMETHING I DON'T NEED TO EAT". I AM SO PITIFUL THAT THAT, IS THE ONLY WAY I CAN MAKE IT WORK FOR ME. I ALSO HAVE TO MOVE MY BODY EVERY DAY. WITH THE CFS AND THE A.S. I NOW HAVE EXERCISES DESIGNED JUST FOR ME FROM P.T. BUT IT TAKES ME NEARLY 2 HOURS TO GET THROUGH THEM EVERYDAY. BUT IT HAS GOTTEN ME TO BE ABLE TO STAY UPRIGHT FOR LONGER PERIODS OF TIME. MY WHEELCHAIR IS NOW IN STORAGE BUT I STILL NEED THE WALKER. STILL IT'S AN IMPROVEMENT. WHEN I GET A REALLY BAD DAY WITH THE CFS OR THE A.S. I JUST NEED TO GIVE IN TO IT. TO PUSH MYSELF THROUGH IT MAKES ME LOSE "TOO MANY SPOONS" AND IT JUST ISN'T WORTH IT. I KNOW YOU UNDERSTAND THAT. FOR PEOPLE LIKE US, WE CAN ACTUALLY HURT OURSELVES BY PUSHING TOO HARD. SO I DO WHAT I DO BUT SOMETIMES IT'S JUST GENTLE THINGS AND MUCH STRENGTH TRAINING.
