The Truth is hard to face !

Sunday, September 08, 2013

Since 2007 I have been on and off using

Spark peoples tools and blogs to help motivate me.

I lost a few pounds and have been able to keep them off,

this I am happy with!

Over the last 4 years or so however I have been

yo-yoing from 270 to 285 pounds.

Every plan I start, I end up quitting.

TRUTH:

I want to be in GREAT shape.

TRUTH:

I DO NOT want to be disciplined enough to actually

do the work to get there.

TRUTH:

I must do this for me and live a longer happier life!

To go on hikes without carrying 75 extra pounds and hurt

from the joint and muscle spasms and pain from

such a work out or walk even...

I pray for strength as I start again and again to continue

my journey to better health!





My stress level is 3 today ! Regular homeschool drama again emoticon

    You're so right on, the work of this process gets daunting but you already proved that you have the dedication to keep at it. Keep your eyes on that, build on the strength you already have, let it carry you, and keep patience right alongside your strengths. We believe in you because YOU ROCK! emoticon

You are worth the work- even if you don't like it, LOL. I am too!

    It is hard to always eat right and exercise. Just do your best and keep trying. Remember, it is worth it and so are you!

    Chris, hang in there. I'm right there with you, knowing the truths, but not doing them. We WILL prevail, you and I (and lots of other folks).
