Pushing away when I need to be pulling in

Saturday, August 24, 2013

Ok. My weight is not going the way I want. First I got stuck. Then The number started creeping upward.
Of course, I'm not happy about this. I want it to change. But I'm finding it hard to not pull back from Spark. When The going gets tough, it's my instinct to pull away from Sparkpeople.

This time, I'm making it different. I spent a good part of the afternoon on here today. I read blogs. I tracked. I caught up with some of my groups. I visited the message boards. I have yet to rediscover my motivation, but I am trying.

I walked a lot today. I did some yoga. I will do some more as a wind-down before bed. I did 1 st move; I will try to do at least 1 more before bed. I am feeding Nathan (he's trying to feed himself!) and typing this on my phone.
I may not feel like being here. I frankly feel crappy and like I am spinning my wheels. I feel like all I'm doing is going backwards. But I am not giving up. I am going through my daily stuff and sorting out what needs replacing. What is ok, what is awesome.
Part of my problem is that my walks aren't all that challenging anymore. I can work on this. I just need to kick myself in the butt here.
I could use some virtual kicks in the hynee from you all too!! :)

Keep going everyone!!

    Don't give up, if you do you are only giving up on yourself and it sounds to me like you really want to change that. It also looks to me from all the comments that you have a lot of people wanting to support you! One baby step at a time!

    emoticon but lets make it a more soft kick than that! Its hard when your original plan isn't working as well- but that is probably because you have made progress with your walking. Maybe make a small tweak like BigPawsUp said- and look at your plan. You can do it- and keeping plugged in is such a great way to keep the motivation going.

    You will get it going the right way again. Just review your plan and start "tweaking"

    emoticon You can kick this! If you don't do anything else, at least stick with Spark. Nobody on here has had an easy time and there's not one person who has not slipped up. I pulled away before too, and gained back so much weight. Just stick with Spark. Eventually, your motivation will kick in again.

    You've got this! emoticon emoticon

    emoticon I get like this too sometimes. I find that if I set up a goal and a reward it helps keep me motivated. Good luck on your journey!!
