How to re-commit

Sunday, May 26, 2013

I want to re-commit to this process. When I first joined Sparkpeople I did pretty good for a short time but would never commit to the long term. The choices I currently make are not the best, and I am aware of that as I am making them. I don't even bother making excuses anymore.

I know I can change my lifestyle because I have done it in the past. I smoked for over 25 years and I managed to stop that habit. It's been 6 1/2 years now. I started the weight loss journey before locating Sparkpeople. My heaviest weigh in was 234, and I am currently at 204. I seem to stay in that 203-208 range, but I will not stay committed to any regular positive lifestyle.

SO...I am going to re-commit to a healthy lifestyle for my mind, body , and if I can just figure out how to do that........

    Don't try to change everything at once, or even start where you left off. Get back to the basics. Choose 1-2 goals you can succeed at. Get comfortable with those couple, then add something else. You want success. We want to see you succeed too.

    Coming back to sp is a wonderful step. No matter who your ally's or saboteurs are in your real world, you have people here that will be cheering you on every step of the journey.

    Stay connected to the community part of sp. the sparkers here are worth way more than gold. :)

    We are always here and going through many of the things you are going through. Do you have some goals to help you get back on track? I've been increasing my steps gradually. Something you can do on your breaks at work? I'm sure there are things you know that sabotage you like your chips. Can you keep those off your grocery list? Can you find something healthy to replace them that you like?
    It's getting to be the right time of year to get more active. Did you get that bike? Go with your daughter and spend some valuable dad/ daughter time. Go hiking in a park with your family and have a picnic. Kids really value having their dads make time to be with them. Go to a park and play ultimate golf (Frisbee), you are never too old to play. Doing something fun will make exercise more appealing. The better you feel the more you will want to do. Good luck Matt. We'll get through this together. emoticon back!
