Heavy Thoughts

Thursday, June 27, 2013

I have been reading through old blogs, from when I first joined SP and lost so much weight.

I don't know why I thought life was smoother back then and that was why things worked for me. I had all sorts of issues back then, maybe even more than now. So why is it so hard for me to find the will and determination that I had four years ago?

I need to think about this.

    I hope that you can think your way through this. The answers are there for you. The ones that make sense to you. I wish you luck and I truly hope you figure this out. In the mean time, like Shannon are still here and THAT is the most important part. Hugs!

    You are not alone, for me I think that its time. In the beginning its so new and great adventure and we have success so we keep going. When our bodies start to give us trouble it can get so discouraging, but as others have said, you are here and that is the big thing.
I too have been struggling, but I just keep going, knowing that all will work out, I just have to keep trying. NOPE its not easy but what else can we do. Just keep trying and you will find what works for you. Just done give up!

Sending lots of hugs and positive thoughts to you.

    I know I'm in the same boat. The key I think, is to never give up. We have too much to live for and we can do this. It IS hard work, but well worth it. We just need to keep reminding ourselves of that and that means being a little more self-focused instead of worrying about everyone and everything else.

Visualization might help. Picture yourself being active and having fun with your family, especially your precious Gino!

You did before and you can do it again. Stay strong! emoticon

    I'm with you. I'm struggling now too. I'm in the process of figuring out what's really holding me back and then trying to remember how I dealt with it in the past. It's been working a bit but I still have a long way to go. I just have to build up some momentum and then I'll be good, but it's just that getting started part again.

I've also been reading some motivational stories here on SP and it sometimes helps too.

Just keep talking about it and thinking about it and you'll hit an epiphany =]
