One year Already?!?!

Saturday, February 23, 2013

Wow! I've been a member of Spark for one year already and the time has certainly gone by fast. Back when I started on 12 Feb 2012 my weight was 292 lbs I believe and as of today (23 Feb 2013) I weigh (drum roll please)......295 lbs! NOT GOOD!!!

Like so many others this is such a lonely journey but I realize it's one that I need to and must take. I've never giving up on myself in anything and I'm certainly not going to this time either. I'm disappointed that the weight increased a little versus not going down at all but I expected that. I've been so freakin inconsistent this past year. I'll do good for a few weeks then fall off the wagon for a few months. Nobody can succeed with that kind of effort. And the bad part about it is that I know where my faults are yet I didn't take control of them like I knew I should have (will blog on that later).

That said, everyday is a new day and a new chance to do better than the day before. Like I said it's a lonely road but I'm okay with that. All roads lead somewhere so I'm gonna see where and how far this one goes!

    You can do this, make small changes - they will last longer. Cut out soda, or take the stairs instead of the elevator.

    Congrats on your one year on Sparkpeople. Do not look to the past just look ahead and make a choice to stay focused. Keep involved with your teams for support and inspiration.

    5 years into this and I will tell you that consistency is one of the hardest parts of this journey. I will also tell you that this doesn't require perfection. If it did, none of us would succeed. You just need to be consistent more days that not. I am a fan of an occasional cheat day...if you are the type of person who can get yourself back on track without it turning into a cheat week or a cheat month.

Congrats on one year...and congrats even more for showing up and starting again. That shows that you really want it.

    I've been there! I agree with the others never give up! It doesn't have to be all or nothing, start with one small change and keep adding to it! Maybe you'll walk around the block once a day or drink 8 glasses of water or whatever you choose, but make the choice to change your life!

    It doesn't have to be a lonely journey. There are so many people on SparkPeople looking for an honest weight-loss/fitness buddy.

Consider this a fresh start and NEVER GIVE UP girlfriend!
