Almost did it again...

Wednesday, May 08, 2013

I must confess, I lost that pound and got down to 194 and then quit logging on to spark or tracking for a few days. I had to make myself get on this morning and I must say, I feel much better now that I am here. This seems to be where I get into the most trouble, I miss a day or two of logging on and I feel like I have failed, so I just keep NOT logging on. This is the beginning of the end of that for me. I have to know that there will be days that I cannot get on here and log my food or exercise, and just try to make it up or just forget it, and move forward. I need Spark, and I need all of you wonderful people that are dealing and struggling with the same issues that I have been struggling with all of my life. Coming here is a privilege, not something to dread, whether I have done really good or have really screwed up, everyone is always very supportive, and that my friends is very good thing indeed.

Have a wonderful day and God Bless!

    Good for you, getting back here before you did a lot of damage to yourself!
We have so many ways of sabotaging ourselves...
because we're succeeding
because we're not succeeding
just because

Glad to see you taking care of yourself and encouraging the rest of us.

    Yeah, perfectionism is a tough habit to break. "If you can't do it right, then don't do it all" seriously needs to be thrown out of our mindsets. Think Nike instead:

"Just do it"

    Knowledge is key! When you know what you're eating, the truth is revealed -- oh so this is why the weight isn't coming off. Keep on sparking!

    You what you can, but as you go along you find it easier. Plus you learn that eating right and exercising works whether you log in or not. But the more you log into
SP the better you feel. It's such a wonderful site.

Good luck and keep sparking!

    It is so easy to falsely reward ourselves when we reach a goal by sabotaging our actions. I know because I have been there.

Carry on and

Make Today a Great Day!
