Starting Again

Sunday, July 07, 2013

I have always struggled with my weight. I have never really drank, never smoked, never been addicted to anything...........except laziness and food.

I no longer judge those who have other addictions. I think food addiction may be the hardest of all. You can get rid of alcohol and tobacco in your home. You can stay away from places to gamble. You can get rid of your computer if you were addicted to porn. But you have to have food to survive. There is no escaping it.

This is a battle I have to win. I have two boys who need their mom. I have a husband who deserves a wife who has energy to keep going and keep the home a haven.

That is what I want to be. But I can't do that at this weight. I am tired and icky feeling most of the time. That needs to change. I pray SparkPeople is the way I can do that. :)

    One step at a time and small changes will give you results. Don't be to hard on yourself when you have a bad day. Just pick yourself up and keep moving forward. Find an activity that you will enjoy doing so, it doesn't feel like a chore when exercising. Best of luck to you on your journey. emoticon

    You can do this. Do you have a plan for the changes that you want to make? The best advice I can give is to go slowly. Aim for 1 change at a time. Practice being successful at it for 4 - 6 weeks, then add another small change. When you need help or encouragement, just post. emoticon

    I've been on spark for a long time and I lost 33 lbs. using it. Of course, I gained it all back so I'm at it again. Maintenance has always been the hardest part for me. Start with small goals, don't expect to be perfect, and build from there. There's no hurry to getting the weight off. You can do this! Good luck!
