Know you are not alone, everyone struggles with weight issues at one time or another, some lucky people actually struggle with the need to gain weight. I am not one of the lucky people!!!
Keep on struggling with the rest of us, it will someday pay off I hope!!!!!

When I need an extra boost, I look at the success stories and the Woo-Hoo msg board posts.
Try that! Three reasons:
1) you can actually SEE that real, live people, just like you, are doing this & succeeding.
2) use imagery to imagine it's YOU making the same or similar post.
3) on the Woo-Hoo board, take the time / opportunity to encourage others. Because it's kind, helpful to them, and in the giving, you receive as well.

Good luck! We all struggle at times; it's not how much you struggle, but the fact that you keep going.

I went to have a wee peek at your SparkPage to see if I could see what was going on, but unfortunately it is private. If you wish to open it, you will find that you will get loads more support and encouragement.

Just remember this

If you THINK you can't, odds are you won't, but if you think you can, then odds are you WILL.

OK, here it is: As soon as you see this, please set a timer for exactly 5 minutes, and think of one thing you can do right here in front of the screen, but that you have been putting off or not doing.

Now push the button, and I will do something too.

CONGRATULATIONS! WAY TO GO! YOU RULE!

I see a GORGEOUS dog on the background of your page. I hope the struggle is over now but taking a dog for a wallk is usually great for your mood!

DUGDIXIE1,

As the old song goes,"accentuate the positive and eliminate the negative". Give yourself credit for all the POSITIVE things you do for yourself and don't beat yourself up because you're not perfect.

You don't have to be perfect to be healthy. Every little bit DOES make a difference.

Focus on the Positive steps you are taking towards better health! Be aware of what you are adding into your Life in nutrition, exercise, and learning. Set realistic goals, and plan on how you will achieve them. Think "slow & steady".....it will get you further than you think!

Definitely don't get caught up in "deprivation" "have to's", "can't's"---that's all negative thinking and will drag you down.

Remember this is a Journey, and like all travels, there are unexpected detours.... AND...unanticipated good things will happen!! Just keep on your road....
All the Best--You Can do this!!
