I just don't make time to do it, plain and simple. It's not that I don't have a desire to, but it just isn't a passion or comes naturally like it does with some. <BR> I've been at a standstill for at least a year with my weight loss, sad to say. I know I have 10-20 pounds to lose, but just haven't felt the great need to do anything about it. I mean, I complain about being over weight, but don't try as hard as I need to to get to where I... Tue, 24 Jun 2008 19:21:34 EST forever tweaking http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=993688 My body is so weird. Just when I think I am on the right track, I have a setback. At my 2nd Kmart weigh in I had lost 2 1/2 lbs. and was very happy. I continued on with what I thought was working for me--eating more veggies, staying away from sweets and excercising more.

When my friend asked if I wanted to do it, at first I thought "no way". I kept having flash backs to grade school when they weighed us and how humiliated I was weighing so much more than the other kids. Yes, my weight issues started in 1st grade and only got worse. I was constantly teased and taunted about my weight. <BR> My friend helped me overcome that fear and I went with her and it ende... Sun, 13 Jan 2008 16:43:43 EST Starting fresh! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=902470 I am so fed up with my wt. going up and down like a yo-yo! Last week I did so well by losing 2.5 lbs. even after eating pizza and spaghetti and meatballs. Then, I get on the scale this morning and gained is ALL back PLUS 2 more over the weekend! I just don't get it. I was more careful over the weekend. <BR> I'm just SO frustrated and don't know what to do. I used to be carb sensitive, and had to restrict carbs to lose. I lost almost 30 lbs. doing that. Then, all of a sudden nearly 2 yrs. ago... Mon, 7 Jan 2008 19:28:51 EST
