I start each day saying today will be the day, then it's over & I didn't accomplish anything. I hate what I look & feel like, you'd think that would be enough. I don't want to get old & not be able to be active, yet once again, I don't make any changes longer than a day or two. I really need to figure this out! Tue, 2 May 2017 14:04:48 EST Still at it! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6275313 It was a little eye opening yesterday with how much sodium was in the food I was eating, did ok with calories was under in protein & fiber. I will continue with recording today while focusing on getting in at least 10 minutes of exercise & drinking my 8 glasses of water. Small baby steps, I'm really tired of the yo-yo dieting.

Everyone morning I get up saying today I will make changes & yet once again nothing! Last night I got on the scales & I weighed more than I every have, so I ask myself a simple question, "WHY"? I don't have any answers & it makes me feel terrible. I have been in such a funk for the last couple of months. My Mom passed away last March & I've even...

I know I'm the only one that can do this, it just doesn't seem to come to me. I know if I don't make the changes, my health with get worse and as I age I won't have the energy or strength to keep at it, yet I don't make the changes. I get so mad at myself & then I think I sabotage myself. I tell myself every day that today will be the day & then it comes night & I still haven't done an...

How many times have I told myself that this will be the time, that I can do it? How do I get the real motivation to stay with it, now just for a few days or weeks but for my life time? If I don't do something, then my health will go downhill & then it will be too late! So even thought writing everything down is very time consuming, I know it helps & hopefully I can do it! Not tomorrow, not next week, not for New year's but for today right now...

I know what to d yet I don't do it! I ask myself, "WHY?", yet I have no answers. I can't even find the words to write my blog, I don't know what's going on in my mind!

Her health was not the best but she really died from loneliness after losing my father 2 years ago.
