Hi Vicki!

Welcome back! I do think you have the determination and the will to do this! Just listen to what many others have said, believe me I'm not being original here, if you have a bad day, make the next one a really good one. We all have little slips, but the important thing is to not let it make you want to quit. Just keep your eyes on that end goal you have set for yourself and don't let anything or anyone get in your way. The feeling you get when you've shown yourself just how much will power you can display, is such a wonderful feeling. At the end of those days, make sure you give yourself a big ole pat on the back! Focus on those positive days and in a while you'll find that those days really outnumber the days when you slip up!

Good luck in this new journey you've started! I'm retired, I'm here almost every day, so give me a holler if you're feeling down, tempted, or ready to quit! I can be as sweet emoticon
or as mean emoticon as you need me to be!

Hugs,
Marsha

I was a member of sparkpeople a couple times under different user names but since menopause, my thinking gets all screwed up and I let emotions get the best of me. So I end up dropping teams or leaving sparkpeople completely. But I'm back to stay this time, no matter what til I lose this weight.
******************UPDATED 10-27-2012********************
Ok, I had these big plans and guess I'm trying to do too much all at once. So here's an update on what I will be working towards now and hope with everything I have in me, I can stick with.
I went back to weighing and will weigh once a week instead of daily, starting tomorrow. After 30 years of weighing daily; going cold turkey just isn't going to work for me. So it'll be once a week for now.
I plan to do a modified low carb plan. That means I will basically be giving up 98% of the junk carbs but allowing the veggie and fruit carbs that most low carb plans frown on. For now I'm going to allow myself the 150 grams of carbs a day maximum but work to keep it lower.
In the past this would have me so frustrated I'd say to H*** with it and leave sparkpeople. That's not happening this time. I'm determined, come h*** or high water, I'm going to stick it out and do my best each day to eat in moderation of whatever I do eat and get in 30 minutes of some form of exercise and over time maybe add a little more. There will be days when I'm very active and then there will be days where I do good to get in the 30 minutes. It is what it is. All I can do is what I can each day.
I know this is a process but it looks like I could find something that would "click" for me and not be so friggin' hard.
But I'm not leaving and each day I'll do the very best I can.
