Gone Long Enough??

Wednesday, December 12, 2012

I sure have been. I used to be such a faithful Sparkie, now I don't even log in, or track my exercise or food, or even drink my water.

I can't even say that starting now I will do it again, but I have been lacking the motivation to make the change again.

I've gained lots of weight back and my clothes do not fit as cute as they used to. And still this is not motivating enough.

I've been so busy...wait no...that's just an excuse. I've been lazy, I'm actually still really lazy and it shows, in my attitude mostly.

It stops now, wait, I said that a few weeks ago, and a month ago, and even day ago, and here I am again, same pit I've been. Aaagghhh!!!!

Worst of it all is...wait for it...I've gotten comfortable in larger size clothing!!! I packed up all my smaller clothes and haven't looked back. Am I ashamed? I think so, but has that changed anything? NOPE!!! Actually, I started buying a size bigger than what I (un)comfortably wear now. Yep, I'm doomed.

A few days ago my husband said "do SparkPeople, you know it works for you". So here I am, following the wise words of that ripped hunk I have for a husband.

So Spark friends, I'm back! For how long? I hope for the long run, I really need to be.

    If at first..............try try again.

Been there done that, bought a larger t shirt...Well that was before....now is now....

We do know what works and it can be time consuming but logging in helps to remind us of what we have to do...tracking shows us where we are and where we're going....Do it! 2013 will be different!

    Sometimes I hate having a super-fit husband...but then again, it's nice to have someone around who knows how to kick me in the seat of the pants when I need it.

    Josie,
I totally get how you feel! It happened to me!! It started with just a few extra lbs and I would think this is not good,but then another side of me would say" oh who cares it just a few lbs". Well now its 50 lbs later!! I just started this new journey 3 days ago!

We can do it!! emoticon

    I just read that Beyonce says it's not your physical strength but your mental strength that will get you to the body you desire. You know your weaknesses. I'm glad you didn't wait until January 1. Today is the perfect day to reboot your health and fitness plan. I have been fooling around on Wii Fit and find it a very motivating tool. It will weigh you and provide you with hours of programs both high energy and not-so-high. My son is my biggest coach and encourager. If you guys already have a Kinect, they say the fitness programs for that are fun and motivating too. I wish you much success in your goals! You will get those small-size clothes back into the front of the closet before you know it!
