this is a common problem . one we most of us share . go so far and then lose interest . start again and do some more . as a person this is hard on our sprite . we can never lose sight of the fact that we must go forward . when we need a teacher we find someone that leads to lead. join the group . learn and grow. add information .
Welcome.... I too am a repeat quitter but i've got my mind made up this time... I'm determined! Spparkpeople is a great forum when you start to stray or just need someone to talk to... . Good luck...
Don't be so hard on yourself as you take steps toward living a healthier life. Focus on the positive changes you've made in your life, from new, healthier foods to a new way of thinking about exercise. You've committed yourself to living a longer, better life.Don't set unreasonable goals. Before long you’ll be enjoying an incredible new way of life and continuing forward with more confidence, more energy and a whole new outlook for the future.
Juventas, don't beat yourself up too much. Most of us here have the same ailment. But the positive part of it all, is that you keep coming back. Like most skills, you don't come out of the gate knowing how to do it. You learn and get better every time you practise.

to the team! We don't quit on life so therefore we don't quit on our lifestyle and this is a way of eating for a lifetime.
I like living. I have sometimes been wildly, despairingly, acutely miserable, racked with sorrow, but through it all I still know quite certainly that just to be alive is a grand thing. Agatha Christie ----------------------- Kierae

And in my mind's eye, I see that poster that says something to the effect that if you're tired of starting over, you need to stop QUITTING. Yeah, that's me. I need to stop quitting!
I started Spark's version of the Couch to 5K running program this weekend. Day 1 is under my belt, Day 2 is this afternoon. And of course the diet component of this plan is low-carb because that's the only thing I've ever noticed works for me. I haven't been real great about getting my carbs down to induction levels or anything, but they're in the less-than-100 grams range, so i'm on my way.
About me: Mom of 2 (fourth and sixth grades), married to my college sweetheart of almost 20 years, occsional substitute teacher, online quilt shop proprietress, ranch wife, and (livestock) sale barn clerk. We live in the corner of Kansas, Colorado and Nebraska.
Wish me luck, and more importantly, the determination to quit QUITTING. ;)
A one hour workout is only 4% of the day. No excuses!
