NOT SETTING A GOAL WEIGHT!!!

Wednesday, January 01, 2014




You are viewing one of my favorite foods. I love ANYTHING with cheese.


I always have my size on my mind. Not necessarily because of the way I look (hanging out the sides of my clothes and sporting an extra chin)
It's ALSO because of the many ways I'm feeling nowadays because of my weight..as follows:

1.Chronic Fatigue(my diagnosis,not a Dr's)
2. Foot Pain (Plantar Faciitis)
3.Back Pain
4.Headaches
5.Poor self esteem
6.Clothes shopping issues(4'11 frame shopping for size 12's or 14's)
7.Too tired to work out (self diagnosed chronic fatigue again)
8. Knee problems

Things I may look forward to if I don't fix myself:

1.High blood pressure
2.Diabetes
3.Surgery on the problem knee
4.Stroke
5.Heart attack
6.Any type of body system failure(take your pick,Faith)
7.My kids following in my footsteps~!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I will be always thinking about my health,and taking steps to make it better in every way possible. My first step is not setting a goal weight!!!!!

Health is much more than a number on a scale

    emoticon I have a problem with sweets....they are my trigger to binge eat, so over Christmas I re-gained five pounds which I worked hard to lose in 2013. BUT like you I have decided NOT to let this deter me from keeping on going in my plan to make good habits...1 step at a time- and never give up. I am still 20 lbs less than I was at the start of 2013, and I have stopped drinking soda-pop altogether, plus eat almost no wheat now, so there has been improvement. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    emoticon I feel it's so much better to set small "baby-step" goals. Goals that are immediately attainable. This way you stay motivated. I am one who HATES exercise!!! But in reading the SPARK book it made so much sense! Now I only attempt to SPARK 10 minutes - which is so do-able! I normally end up doing more or 10 - 3x's per day --- emoticon

    I think most people set their goal weight way too low anyway. If I had it to do over again I would set 10# goals. Anyway as you start eating healthier and eat less you should start dropping the weight. Have a wonderful 2014! emoticon

    Not setting a goal weight, whether or not you change your mind down the line, sounds excellent. The main objectives are to eat healthfully, do other healthful and whatever else suits your needs and desires. In the process, the scale will slide downward anyway.

Go for it!

    So true with the "no goal weight" thoughts. Eat healthy and be healthy is the main issue. The weight will take care of itself it you take care of you.

Best of luck in 2014, Konrad

    Goal weights are just something to aim for. When I started my Spark journey I set a goal weight that was apparently unattainable and unrealistic for me. I started
Losing and before I knew it I was wearing size 12s and 14s, which was my ultimate goal. I was still about 25 pounds from where I had set my goal weight. I have maintained all but about 10 pounds of the weight loss for over 3 year now. I think my body knew where it should be and just stayed there. I am determined to lose back down to where I was about a year and a half ago. GOOD LUCK!!!!!!
