Return to Sparking

Friday, January 11, 2013

Well here I am after a long break from Sparking and I have not been taking care of myself. I have gotten back to a more regular exercise routine but my eating has been dreadful. I can say that my success over the summer never lasted though the holidays. I am close to gaining back all that I had lost. I don't have any energy or motivation to tackle my food issues. I hope that coming back to Spark People everyday will help to get me motivated to make some wiser food choices. I am going to try to get off the couch more often as that has been my favorite spot to wallow in depression and self recrimination. I have some problems I am dealing with, relationship, family and loneliness. I know this is not an inspiring post, just getting it out there and hoping it helps.

    Remember, you can make positive changes one babystep emoticon at a time. Don't try to change everything at once. Pick one new habit to focus on for a week or morebefore adding another positive choice to what you are doing.

    Checking in often helps to remind you most of us are struggling & striving in one way or another to make similar changes and improvement in our lives. You got a good response from many folks here. Keep Sparking, dear one! emoticon
    Blessed Be, Amanda emoticon

    it's inspiring to know you haven't given up on yourself. That you are working on taking all of back to where you need to be. It inspires me that no matter how many times I fail all I have to do is get back up and keep going. If you can do it so can I.

    Posting a blog is therapeutic. Putting it all out there for all to see is the first step towards getting better. It's hard losing weight and even harder maintaining the loss. Hang in there, try to track everything and most of all, believe you can do it. Weight loss needs to be done for you and your health, no one should matter more than you.

    You know, however weird it sounds it IS inspiring to know that I am not alone in having a hard time to stay active and positive and it mostly helps me to "put it out there" so I hope it helped you too!

    Been there done that. Went through a bad year, 2010. First my aunt died in feb,my uncle in march, 3 of my grand kids were placed in foster care, my son was in jail, my mother died in Aug and friend in sept and another Aunt also is Sept, Dec. my hubby was in hospital and my son had a blockage and was in there too. My son was lucky because his was in the widow maker. The following Feb, hubby's aunt passed away and latter that year my grand kids were adopted out. Talk about not being able to motivate, I didn't have time to get over one thing before something else happen. I found sp Aug 2012 and every one has helped me through allot of things . So please quit wallowing , things want get any better that way. My granny use to say you think you are back off, but trust me there is always someone out there that is worse off. Grandmothers were so smart. emoticon
