Let's try this again

Sunday, November 25, 2012

Seems I have given up on a lot of things that I love as of late. Not only am I not writing as much as I used to, but I am also the heaviest I have ever been in my life. My new job takes a lot out of me emotionally, which in turns makes me so tired I have little energy to do the things I love: writing, playing games, reading. I manage to get my homework done during my lunch breaks and on the weekends, but as for having enough energy to hop on my new exercise bike or coming up with a fun witty article for my website I've lost it. Yesterday I found out that I could possibly have a very serious condition in my eyes and have been referred to a specialist to find out if it is weight related or genetics. I have to lose weight. I've been reading about lapband, but it seems awfully invasive and kind of scary. This is depressing. I don't see me in the mirror anymore and I certainly don't feel pretty anymore. I'm going to try to commit to SparkPeople once again and see if I can actually follow through with this without being too busy or too tired to login and track my eating and exercise. Wish me luck.

    Please don't ever give in to the 'maybe' syndrome. Determine that you WILL track every day!

    Your eyesight is nothing to fool around with. Just keep on saying to yourself "I CAN DO THIS!" "I CAN DO THIS!!" "I CAN DO THIS!!!"

    Hi! I'm so glad you're here and trying to commit again!! I teach middle school AND I have a 17 (almost 18) month old son. To top it off, I pretty much do it all by myself. My boyfriend works until almost 9 pm every night and isn't much help when he's here due to exhaustion. If I can do it, you can too!!!!

    Here are just a few suggestions that might help you stay active on the site:
    1) Join a good SparkTeam! Utilize your SP Class Team or join a new one since you're starting over. I am the leader of the Looking for Motivation & Support SparkTeam and we would love to have you! Search for us or click on my SparkPage and you should see it!
    2) Download the SparkPeople app to your phone. I have the app on my home screen on my iPhone and it helps so much. This way, if I don't have time to get on the computer, I can log things in on my phone (and I ALWAYS have my phone on me).
    3) Make a SparkBuddy. I'm totally willing to join you on your journey. Send messages back and forth, comment on each other's blogs, etc. Stay on track with one another so you can continue to motivate each other on your new journey.

    You can do this! I have faith in you!
