I joined SparkPeople 2 weeks ago because I was fed up with my weight and overwhelmed with where I find myself. The thing that bothers me is that I don't each much. Sometimes, in my thoughts, I get whiney because it's not fair that I can't eat the way some can, with no affect on their weight. The more I obsess about certain foods being off limits, the more I want to eat them.
One thing I have going for me is that I do enjoy healthy foods. So that is a plus.
Another positive thing is that I enjoy being on Spark People. I am discovering that the more I come here, the more motivated I get. It's also motivating to learn that even small efforts will have big dividends, namely with making the habit. But the gravy on top (no pun intended) is that I should still see results. I am already beginning to feel better.
For now, I am mostly committed to being on the site daily. If I do no more than that, I haven't broken a goal. However, when I get here, I am getting more and more fired up. My daughter even wants to come along with me in developing good habits. We both exercised today. And because it was only for 10 minutes, she had no complaints.
Yay! I'm excited now. That is fuel for the journey.
