I just couldn't do it yesterday. It's been a hectice week. Today is Wednesday and I haven't been home before 8:00 pm, and tonight it will be the same. I was eating dinner at 9:30 when the guilt began. " I didn't eat any fruit or veggies today!" <BR> <BR> As I go along my Spark journey, I have come to the conclusion..."It's tough to get the recommended amount of fruit and veggies every day." My morning consists of a fruit with my oatmeal or healthy cereal. "One!" Then a fruit for my morning... Wed, 7 Mar 2012 08:38:54 EST I cried because I'm fat! I can't remember if I've ever done it. I know I've been down about my weight, think constantly about my weight, but today I all out cried about it. I can't even blame my hormones about it. I am 50lbs over weight, and it just seems hopeless to lose ANY of it. My 5'1" frame must be carrying 185lbs. The months of working out and eating sensibly just to lose any weight are enough to make me lose hope. <BR> <BR> I start Zumba tomorrow after not going for 3 weeks. But I go in thinking "Why? It's ... Sun, 19 Jun 2011 21:05:31 EST Not doing anything is getting me nowhere As recently as 3 months ago, I had finally gotten mediocre at balancing my LIFE. But, the nagging pain in my foot was becoming more noticeable, And I didn't want to stop exercising, I was feeling so good in my clothes! So off to ZUMBA & SPINNING I went, and the Treadmill and weights and walking. But there came a day when the just walking around the house doing housework became so painful I just had to stop doing what I had taken for granted. After researching what I think I have, I followe... Wed, 23 Feb 2011 09:02:59 EST Got a 'tip' for Emo / Stress Eating? I need help! Hi I'm Nancy, and I'm an emotional eater. When I am in a stressful 'time', I eat and make bad choices. I'm not talking about a whole package of Oreos or anything, but I will have a bowl of ice cream...every night. I'll have 1/2 a bag of chips, a PB& J when I know I'm not hungry, a grilled cheese....after dinner! I notice when I'm most stressed is when I'm in between paychecks and struggling to make ends meet. I also notice I react the same way when I'm fighting with the kids. I also stre... Mon, 7 Feb 2011 11:34:29 EST I'm sure a lot of people struggle this time of year. It seems that I always reassure my self that I'm not going to be like my mom - overweight. In the past I have joined weight losing programs, joined gyms and monitor what I eat, but here I am, the heaviest I've been while not pregnant - 182lbs. I currently have a membership to the Wellness Center through my employer, but don't attend regularly. I've been a memeber of Spark for a few months, and use to tools off and on. I struggle daily with the guilt of my weight and how it affects my life. I... Mon, 20 Dec 2010 09:55:09 EST Struggling through the holidays Work, children, financial worries, mother in rehab after surgery = not taking care of myself. For about 2 weeks now I haven't tracked my eating, or excercised and I feel it. I also feel that even loosing 1 lb is not possible. So, trying to get back on track. Wish me luck! <em>24</em> Tue, 14 Dec 2010 09:20:23 EST
