started back today getting on track

Monday, December 24, 2012

Went to the doctor about 3 weeks ago, she said my cholesterol was sky high and I need to loose weight. I work at a non-profit with homeless people and I feel like that saps most of my energy. I need to be able to be there for my boys who are 7 and 12. She said I have to start fighting and stop feeling sorry for myself. I asked myself what is in it for me to keep over eating. Do I like to make myself feel bad, do I want my family to feel sorry for me, what is it? I know that I over eat when I am stressed, tired, mad, depressed. I also know that if I walk daily I am more apt to continue on a good path for the day. I walked yesterday for 45 minutes and today I walked for 30 and did 20 sit ups. I tried this site, but did not stick with it, but I know that another year will just pass me by and I can choose to do something, or I can choose to do nothing. Here is to choosing to do something productive. Let me know if you know where I am coming from! emoticon

    Welcome back! Lots of things can get in the way of our good intentions -- I'm pretty sure most of us that are here can vouch for that... Don't try to change everything all at once, making small changes can add up to big results, and once a change becomes a habit you can work on something else. Using the nutrition tracker has been so valuable to me, I put down everything I've eaten, good or bad, every day -- and if it wasn't such a good day then I'm motivated to do better the next day. I hope to be "seeing" you often around the community -- be sure to come back and check out our "class" team of Sept 9-15, 2012, we've been making some changes and trying to get more of the team members involved.

    Best wishes --

    You have a lot of stress in your life. Get some Vitamin B stress formula to help your body, especially your adrenal glands and that will help with your weight and will trickle down to help your cholesterol walking is a great way to help weight loss and with stress

    I know where you are coming from! What a great gift to give yourself for Christmas; a new start! Set some goals and focus on those instead of the weight loss. That might cause you to look at the process differently and succeed. emoticon
