Down But Determined

Friday, March 22, 2013

I anybody out there? Help, I have gone from 160 lbs to 230 and it's like I candy (for lack of a better word) get myself motivated to do what I know I need to do. I know what I need to do; eat right & exercise, but I lack the motivation. I will start and then the will power dissipate and leaves me. I get so frustrated with myself when I look in the mirror or think about me, gaining 68 pounds back that I worked so hard to get rid of. HELP, is anybody out there??? High blood pressure and diabetes run rampant in my family, but I don't have either and I know if I don't make a change in my life, that it could affect me as well. HELP, is anybody out there???? emoticon emoticon

    I hear you! My motto and scripture is - I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me! And truly God is my help and He is helping me and keeps me motivated. If you have a relationship with Him, He will supply all your needs. I know prayer changes things!

    I was down to 175 and went back up to 205. It goes on so easy and it is so hard to take off. I ignored the scale, stopped working out, did not watch what I was eating. I do have high blood pressure and I was tired of feeling tired. My sister told me about SparkPeople and I decided to take charge of my life again. It keeps you accountable and people are very encouraging. You can join challenges. I am in the 13lbs in 13wks challenge that is wrapping up, but we are starting a new one on 4/1/13. So if you are ready, there are people here to encourage you and give you advice. Start with small changes, get moving, record what you are eating, increase fruits and vegetables, but do not make drastic changes all at once because it will not last. These are changes that you need to make for the rest of your life, so they need to be changes you can live with. You can do it!

    There are a lot of us out here. Don't look at the big picture and beat yourself up. If you did this to yourself, you have the power to undo what is done. Maybe you could start with just one small change for a week or so, or even a day. Small successes add up and gaining control in one small area gives you the confidence to make the next change. Every healthy choice you make gives you a history of being a healthy person and it all adds up. You can do this. emoticon

    I am here!!! I know just how you feel. I lost down to 190 and went back up to 279. But it is possible to get back with it - I am now down to 212. Don't give up. I started walking and going to Curves and it has actually made the journey a pleasure for the most part. You can do it!!!!!!!!!!
