Right now this minute I am struggling to keep going. I know I have to make this change to improve my life and my life expectancy. But today I don't see how I'm going to make it. I feel sad and hopeless but i don't want to give up because I have to much at stake. So I guess I'll cry my tears wipe my eyes and look up to God and ask for His mercy and grace to keep pushing.

    Initially, I spent a couple weeks here . . . just reading and filling out the nutrition tracker. I knew I was overeating and didn't worry - I just tracked it. I was surprised to find, at the end of each day - that I wasn't eating as bad as I had imagined. It took much smaller adjustments than I had imagined.

    Hang in there - YOU WILL FIND the motivation you need to keep going. Reading others success stories is motivating too.

    This little line helps me a LOT:


    Hot tea and blessings!

    I joined at the beginning of April and there are certainly days when the enormity of what you are trying to do will consume you. While I just jumped in to everything, do what you feel comfortable doing. For me, the nutritional tracker was key. I forced myself to log it in every day, even though I knew I wouldn't like the results. It made me start weighing my food, which was an eye opener. The second thing I can't do without is the wonderful encouragement from everyone. It is the heart of this place for me. Don't be afraid to friend someone. They usually friend you back and your support system gets bigger and bigger. You can do this! If you can't jump in because it is so overwhelming, decide to take just one step. We are all here for each other. emoticon Wishing you some emoticon !

    There will be days like this... try doing one good thing for yourself, and let that lead to another. This is just a bump in the road - not a roadblock! You can do this. Blogging about it was a good idea. Also, there are many inspirational posts on SP.
    Stick with it... don't undo the good you've already done. You don't want to have to start over, so DON'T GIVE UP! I'm sending positive thoughts your way.
    Make this a good day for you!

    I think we all have these days but i think you have the right attitude, lean on God when you need to. I struggle with sadness on a regular basis and woke up feeling a similar way as you. Try to take care of yourself today and do something for YOU! You can get through this.
