Everyone else does it

Sunday, October 20, 2013

You know, I'm so tired of trying and failing. I just cannot power my way through losing weight. I'm tired of getting excited and doing well for a week then losing all motivation and quitting.

I always think that I'm the only one that does this. Everyone else decides they are going to lose weight and then they do it. I KNOW I'm not alone but this is a lonely thing to go through, only because no one can do it for me. I have to make every decision, practice every discipline, get over every obstacle myself.

Well, I sat down and started reading different things on this site - something I've done lots of times - and I happened upon a spark mail from Indygirl. She and her team are reading You: On a Diet and discussing it. I decided to read it because, well what could it hurt. So, I got it and am beginning it today.

I'm still walking to Corpus, still planning to start C25K when I get there, and still doing Weight Watchers. Is this the working combo? I'll have to get back to you on that.

    I do the same thing I am really good for a couple of weeks then I slowly quit tracking then say to heck with it. Not this time I don't care if the scale doesn't move as fast as I would like. I am going to do it and so are you.

    I have been off track many times but since I joined Spark People I have learned to go back to basics when I am struggling. By basics I mean taking little steps every day. Don't be too hard on yourself or you will feel like quitting. I've been there and done that.
