great quotes on your page, PJ.
I have been on an exercise regime for about a year. People talk about slow weight loss being 1lb a week. How about 1 lb a month? I'm down about 11 pounds, but I've lost inches here and there and can fit in all the clothes I've been wanting to fit in - except for one pair of pants with an unfair waist size. But now I'm losing incentive. It's been such a long time since I've felt I was at my best weight. I don't think I can imagine a ME smaller than the ME I am now. Anyone else having trouble with 'the vision thing'?

You list out all the things you did wrong, but all I saw was the one thing you did right! You logged into Spark People, shared what happened, and received lots of support and encouragement, which is what we all need. Hooray for you! That took courage -- to admit that backward step and move on forward. We can do this! We all struggle. We don't give up.
Thank you for reminding me I'm not the only one who has days like that. You can't fail if you don't quit. You will make it.

Hi and welcome to the team. Being aware of what you put in your mouth is the first step. It also helps when you are aware of how you feel afterwards. You can do this, and yes, you can always start over again after a bad day.

Hi and welcome to the team emoticon

Smile .... it makes people wonder what you're up to ;-)

The fourth glass of wine is always a good idea before you do it and a really bad idea afterward! ;-)

It is far easier to MAKE time to exercise than it is to FIND time to exercise. You want results???? MAKE it happen.

Welcome to the team, Jonette, and best of luck to you. Your story is a familiar one and think we've all been there at some time or another. Try not to beat yourself up; forget about it and move on. Sounds like you are back on track today and that's a great thing. Looking forward to hearing about your progress!

Dear Jonette, we have all had days like that, and we have all felt bad about our poor choices! emoticon But the good thing to remember is that this is a LONG journey, and you can get right back on track the very next instant, Just like you are doing today, by exercising. emoticon As long as you are following the right path more times than you stray, you will reach your goal. And if it takes a while, no one here in this team will complain. emoticon

Well, it is changing habits and that is not easy. Cupcakes made by a certain store are my weakness, well one of them. I have had to practice marching by the bakery department and also not buying their bread because it is right next to cupcakes.

Also, for my granddaughter, her parents are very particular what she eats (bless them). I would never buy candy for her as a treat. One, the poor little dear inherited my body build and I don't want her to develop my bad habits. That might help you too, in breaking off getting started.

But, am also very good at dusting myself off and starting again. I do see progress though.

Hi, I am Jonette, 67 and living in Michigan or California, depending on the season. Never sure where I will be but I know I am a very slow looser. And now I know why. Yesterday I joined the sugar challenge, ate a good breakfast, great lunch and it was all down hill from there. Went to the eye doctor to have a yag treatment, left there and got the car washed. Then to the hardware. Now you would think a hardware store is a very safe place for a healthy eater, right? WRONG! Along a whole wall were box after box of old fashioned candy, theater candy if you will. So being the good Gramma I am I decide to pick up a treat for the grand sons. (BAD IDEA) So I bought them their treats and maybe just a few Maryjanes for me,,,,,,,. 2nd mistake.... Then came dinner, Pizza. Now I could have one piece and be just fine, but no, had to have not 1, not 2 but three pieces of square pepperoni pizza. And last but not least since I have given up Diet Coke I decided to have a real coke. Could all of this be why I feel so crumby today.....? And the kicker is for the first time in 3 weeks I did not exercise as I have been. Been doing Mon. Tue, Wed. Faithfully and Thur. and Fri. most weeks.
So I feel terrible, overdosed on sugar, did not work out and had a bad night sleep. Can I start over today? I think so. Off to exercise, lower body weight training today and 30 min treadmill. Will I ever get off this up and down treadmill? emoticon
