First Time Blogging

Thursday, February 21, 2013

This is my first time blogging. I don't want show my real emotions while blogging because I don't think I'll like what I read when I look back. I want to remain positive. I know weight loss is hard. Keeping that weight off is even harder. My struggle is finding the motivation to keep going. I have a reason to keep going, but that other voice in my head sometimes trumps out those reasons. If we can find a way to overcome that voice, we'd all have it made. We were out of town last weekend. I never make the right choices when I'm out of my routine. It's a problem and I realize that. I also realize changing habits after 30 years isn't going to be easy. It's a slow process. How many times do they say we have to repeat something before it becomes a habit? Many. I will strive to do my best. I'll take one day at a time.

    Oh boy, you don't want to read my blogs through the months!! Talk about emotion, but that's who I am, can't help it!
As far as what you had this weekend here is my thinking... You went away, enjoy yourself. You know to get back on "program" when you are home. Either work out a little harder or cut back by a few calories during the week. It's a give and take.
Welcome to SP, hope your journey goes well!!

Good luck, have a great rest of the weekend.

    I like reading blogs the emotional ones help more sometimes than those with just advice. I ramble a lot in my blogs and I feel like I should write how I feel this isnt an easy journey and I want to be totally honest with my blogs. I also know how you feel getting off the routine I go a lot and im having trouble making the best choices in our eating out times and our family take what we call road trips day long journeys either to the beach or just to look around we stop and grab food on the way and I always end up making some bad choice but every day we are givien a brand new page in our lifes and we are the ones writing our lifes story and what we do that day is what is written down on the page the good stuff and the bad but every single day we are given a brand new 24 hours to redo things and start over when I think of my days like that I know even if I mess up today tomorrow God allows me to start completely over and I can make each day better than the one before.
Just stick to it and soon you will be making more good choices than bad ones and thats when the goal will be reached. take it one day at a time and always be honest with yourself . and keep blogging you will be amazed when you go back at how much you have actually accomplished.
