Believing that I could have an inspirational story

Saturday, December 29, 2012

Right now, my story is not inspirational in the least. I have actually gained since joining spark people. I'm taking this as a (very) slow learning curve and don't think it's a waste of time. I've learned that I don't have anything wrong with me (thyroid, hormones, etc); I simply eat too much. If I want to lose weight, tracking my food intake is essential. I exercise a lot, but not as much when I eat poorly. Tracking my exercise minutes has shown me this. It's the beginning of the year and the cycle of kooky diets begins, I'm very tempted, but I want to learn how to cook and eat healthy for life. Believing that each step is a learning process will hopefully assist me in having an inspirational story to blog about...stay tuned.

    I disagree that your story is "not inspirational in the least".

Just the fact that you are STILL HERE and have been assessing your strengths and weaknesses is inspirational.

Now that you know what things need working on, you can get a plan in place to do it.

I think that everyone who takes the Spark message to heart is inspirational.

Now swap out that dinner plate for something smaller!!!

Personally, I like the idea of "mindful eating" and try to practice it by paying attention to the eating and not be playing computer games or reading Spark blogs or watching tv, etc. while I am eating.

  You have a great attitude. You realize that obtaining a healthy lifestyle is a PROCESS not an event. If you follow the steps you have laid out and use the tools offered by SP you will be successful.
