During the day yesterday, I was feeling so frustrated with my weight. I love my Mom dearly, but I get frustrated when I see her hobbling around and saying that she hurts everywhere. She's barely over 50. I just know that I don't want that to be me in another 20 years. And I looked at my own attempts at weight loss and it's hard not to be annoyed at myself. I realized that next week, I'll have been with Spark People for a year, and I've got a 14 pound weight loss to show for it. Part of me says ok, you're 14 pounds less than you were last year. A bigger part of me wishes that I were a lot more less than last year.
It's not that Spark People doesn't work. I think it would work if I were more committed. And that brings us to today. I'm feeling tired of being overweight. And trying to research ways to lose weight gets exhausting. There's so much conflicting information out there. I feel though, that what I need to do is just really commit and just get started. No more sitting around feeling sorry for myself. But I can honestly say I could use some cheerleaders. And I need to work on ways to keep motivation going.
But anyway, this is today, where I really start. I am going to make it happen!
