I've been around SparkPeople for a while and I've been around weight loss for most of my life! I've had successes and backslides and am just tired of myself lately and need that SPARK to really get me going. I try to remain positive, but do not understand why I just cannot commit.
I came to slowest loser because I've always had teh motto of "TURTLE POWER" --- slow and steady wins the race. I've lost 100 lbs in the past, gained 40, took it off, gained 20 took it off and now am in the process of trying to get this last 10 I gained OFF, but haven't....I've never lost more than about 1 lb per week average. My body either looses with a bigger loss, followed by a few weeks of nothing, then a bigger loss (even when eating the same) or abotu .6 to 1 lb per week. But, when I do the bigger losses, the following weeks wind up averaging it out to 1 lb per week.
For me lately, I just have every excuse in the book and then every "oh, tomorrow is another day" every day. I'm tired of me doing this and me obsessing on it! Cannot I just commit and do one good day of following the meal plan...followed by another good day? I workout regularily, I know what to do with food, I just need to do it.
I have been (my favorite metaphor) flopping around like a fish out of water and I need to do something NOW, before this 10 lbs turns into 20 or more! My downfall = overeating at night and then trying to make up for it the next day by eating little all day (and then the cycle continues, as we know). I want to focus on being healthy with meals, and just STICKING to my plan for the day, which includes eating well throught out the day with one snack at night.
Anyway, I'm just "flopping" around and I that I can find inspiration and motivation to finally have this "click" for me.
