I feel like that sometimes, and you have to just make yourself do SOMETHING on days like that. Like just eat one healthy meal or make yourself do a 10 minute workout!

It's going to be a life long journey. And the moment you truly accept that, it gets a little easier. The first party of the journey is bumpy and all uphill. But soon you find your footing a little easier and can go a little faster. As long as you are consistent and don't give up, you'll get to a point where it will be second nature to eat an apple instead of a bag of chips. Or to take the stairs instead of the elevator.

Don't get me wrong, even when it's easier going, you will still face challenges. Don't let that scare you. Use the tools that Spark People teaches you, and stick to your guns, and you will get through it. The community believes in you!

Hello Slim.by42,

Silly as it may sound, back when Dr. Phil was only a weekly guest on Oprah, he said, "Either you get real serious or you get real fat" Somehow it was the exact nudge I needed to get real serious.

Life and the quality of life you choose is up to you. There are options and choices we make that add up to make our future. Every healthy choice you make is progress towards a healthier you. Just do it!! Deleting excuses and resolving to succeed are a great way to launch into the process. emoticon

The SparkDiet approach to setting goals that help you change your lifestyle is a process that can help you start out slow and steady and begin making small changes that you can build on as you move forward. You can find an overview of our approach here - www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/stage_overview

.

The start of 2014 is right around the corner. Set up your Fast Break goals and begin the new year with a plan that will help you reach your goals and a healthier set of habits.

Last year I lost 16 pounds from January to May. Then something happened and I became depressed and tired of trying. Today I have gained it all back. Very frustrating. I think the problem is I haven't accepted I need to change my eating/drinking habits permanently. The first half of the year I was drastic and exercised a lot. Then I just got so depressed I stopped exercising and started eating whatever I wanted. I am mad at myself but feeling realistic in that I am not sure I can ever make permanent change. I want to but what if I don't want to enough? I am driving myself crazy with it all.
