First Post in FOUR YEARS...

Wednesday, November 28, 2012

I'm back.

I've recommitted to making myself and my health a priority.

I'm struggling to "be good" and I have been for several years. I try, I lose, I give up. I am re-motivated. I try, I lose, I give up.

I just moved to DC this summer and started a new job and a new step in my life. I'm really hoping this will be the motivation I need to get up and going and make myself REALLY a priority - I don't just want to say it any more! I want it to be true!

I need help. My boyfriend is on this journey with me, but he's still learning the ropes. I need constant motivation and encouragement if this is going to work!!

Here's to reconnecting with SparkPeople :)

    Welcome back! KEEP POSTING! The responses - filled with encouragement and support - are what help me get through the ups and downs of this journey!

I, too, was away for four years and came back last summer. I haven't missed a daily log in yet. I may not get to spend a lot of time on the site every day, but I do log in and spin the sparkwheel. Goofy as it is, it's working! It reminds me of my priorities and goals.

Don't be discouraged that you've fallen off the wagon. Be proud that your back and trying. You will NEVER fail if you don't give up. So here's to not giving up!

    Knowledge is power.

Good luck to you and keep coming here to help get ideas how to move forward with your goals and to help your boyfriend. I read a lot of the articles here as well as reading blogs.

Make it your pace.

    I put a post-it note in my "snack" cupboard and above my desk of my goal weight. That way it is always in mind. I also go grocery shopping right after my workout so "bad" foods are super unappealing then. If it isn't in the house, you can't eat it!!!

Good luck!!!
