Motivation

Tuesday, October 08, 2013

My last Blog entry in March says that I had lost my motivation to continue my weight loss journey. When I re-read that blog entry, I feel bad for the way I was thinking. I hope that I never take such a long hiatus again regarding my Weight Loss. I have to lose about 100 pounds, which seems like such a ridiculously high number. Being an impatient person this is difficult for me. But I am thrilled to see the number on the scale go down a little each week. I know that slow and steady wins the race.

I have a renewed burst of motivation. It seems like I had to wait for a 3 week vacation to be over, then I needed to wait until my son went back to college. I had so many excuses NOT to diet, but could not think of any valid resons to start eating healthier. I started on this new program of mine (high protein / low carb) on Septemebr 16th, and have lost 16 pounds.

I just turned 50, which allows me to join the senior citizen gym in town for $2. a visit. I try to go three days a week, and basically just use the track and the rowing machine. I am amazed at these seniors who, in their 70's and 80's run on a treadmill. They give me such much inpiration, and I realize that I have no excuses for not doing my best.

My clothes are starting to feel a little looser. I look forward to when people will start to notice. And every day, I feel just a little bit healthier.

Many thanks to so many of you who posted words of encouragement on my page, while I was gone When I needed SP the most - I never logged in. You did not give up on me - when I have given up on myself. Many thanks to all of you who have showed your support! Feel so happy to have found SparkPeople again!
