Lack of motivation is my struggle today. My life has been in a downhill spiral for years. My family is starting to lose hope in my ability to change. Once upon a time, I was a thin, athletic, honors student, accepted to 5 major universities with her whole life ahead of her. Now I am in my late 30s 100 pounds over-weight, unemployed, in a marriage no one approves of, just my high school education...losing my drive. Watching my hope disappear with each new person that turns their back on me. My family believes the only way I can better my life and achieve is to let go of my marriage. It is controlling one minute and lots of promises and spoiling the next minute. I don't know what I am doing. Don't know how to take care of 3 kids by myself without a car or job.....I feel really lost and alone.

Trying to be more positive. Walk the walk and talk the talk until it comes more naturally.

What day is your birthday? You are my moms age! She will be 51 in June. :) White Rock is a little far from me. I'm south Arlington/Mansfield area but if I'm ever in that area I will keep you in mind! Texas can be so big sometimes! LOL

What's important is that you are here now and I can tell that you are ready to make a difference in your life. This group has been quiet for awhile (sad to say) but maybe you and me can bring the SPARK back!

Enjoying life! :)

4 years! That is diligence!! I let myself go for years--then in '09 got serious--lost 40 lbs, and then my Dad broke his hip, Mom could not be alone(dimentia), and time was not my friend, and the stress of caretaking did me in! I am back at it now--Mom is gone now--Dad is still in need of help sometimes(at 89) so I am really really trying to keep at it! I would love to be at the weight that you are now!!
Sometimes I make it to Dallas, to see my kids, and other friends in the city. Maybe sometime we can set up a walk around White Rock or Bauchman, or something!
I am 50 this month! I have already lost 30 lbs, but still have 100 to go!
Keep at it!

I'm in the DFW metroplex. There are a ton of people here but everyone is always so busy or just not on the same page as I am fitness wise so its been a struggle for me too.

I actually just celebrated my emoticon on April 3rd. :) I have fallen away at times over the years but I always come back. This site is awesome if you will use it to help motivate you.

I am in East Texas, very near Canton First Monday. You?
I have a hard time finding people to exercise with around here and cannot motivate myself!
How long have you been on SP?

I wish I had that too TexasBelle but so far what I've found on SP is strictly online. I know of only one group where they all lived in the same area and signed up on here together. I'm a Texan too! Where are you located?

I am struggling with getting enough exercise. As I do every day. Most of the time I can keep check on the food, but the exercise is the hardest part.
Does anyone on here ever meet in person, and exercise together? Or is it just online?
If someone holds me accountable, and it becomes social, I get it done!

LOL I could SO see you doing the eye roll! emoticon

Today I am struggling with lack of sleep. I was up all night last night coughing. It was horrible. By the time I finally got calmed down my alarm was going off! Then I get to work and a co-worker has once again called in sick. She is constantly calling in and it is taking everything I have to be patient with her. Luckily she is just a temp and will only be here until the end of May but man does May seem far off today! LOL

I have started doing just that - thanks for the advise. I have a little notebook and drive everyone crazy cuz I take it with me everywhere. I still miss some things but doing much better. Planning my meals has helped as well. Friday night I made salads for three work days - all exactly the same. I enter it once and copy it to the next two.

Hugs - one thing at a time. Can't ask a person to do anymore than that. Just remember to slow down and take a moment to breath deep and smile.

My struggle today was not going "whatever, I'm already over my calorie intake" and feasting on junk food. Making a cup of tea to compensate. I have that struggle many times.

Can't wait to see what my struggle will be tomorrow (insert eyeroll here).

If I were you I would maybe write down what I eat and when you get to a computer then you can input it. Just a thought. :)

My struggle for today is trying to keep everything straight! I feel like I'm being pulled in so many directions I am trying not to get overwhelmed.

It is pretty early in the day so no struggles yet (well, took me a few minutes to get out of bed I guess but daughter was up and getting ready for school so I didn't need to be up). I am sure later on my struggle will be not snacking at work. My general struggles are keeping my goals of visiting friends/groups on SparkPeople and tracking nutrition. I use shared internet and it is super slow and difficult to get much done. I like to get it done in morning if I can but tracking well I guess I could start doing it the next day. So I guess I am out of excuses ... got packs of gum (love the Extra flavors root beer float and many more). I chew them so I can't snack at work! Got water already so set there!

emoticon Hope you have a winning day over your struggles!

Okay, I just didn't do it yesterday afternoon...Work has finally (after 4 years) lessened to 40 hours a week, but I was so thrilled with a shorter day (8 hours) yesterday that I just went home and relaxed...It was downhill from there. Today there are more excuses to be had, but really...No excuses for me today.

Thanks to both of you!

emoticon birds of a feather flock together - haha

today my struggle was work, too much work, not enough people; had to put on 3 other hats - oh well, supervisors noticed and thanked me - good stuff for when I write my review I guess.

buddy of mine brought a dvd for me to try - hip hop abs - gonna try it tomorrow

oh another frustration I noticed - as you loose weight the amount of calories burned for the same activity goes down. When I stop to think about it logically it makes sense but goodness it is frustrating to think about having to do more as I have less.

don't want to complain too much despite the topic title

I have many good things too! great weather for walk where I saw cute guys playing softball, new friends on sparkpeople and made plans with sis in law to meet up later this week!

hope you all have a great day! look forward to hearing from you soon!

To PeanutsMom 96:

The weather and what's on sale at the grocery store....It's cool outside, so I've been making more soups and turkey chili. However, when out on our weekly grocery trip I spied a 15 lb bag of potatoes for $5...too good of an offer to pass up. Last night I just gave in and made mashed potatoes for the first time in 9 months. Talk about comforting! However, it's nice enough outside for my run today, so no treadmill, and my new grocery list does not include potatoes emoticon

Hey, the workout classes are a great idea! If nothing else, they give your workout a fresh spin and that alone can help motivate you to make your fitness a priority again emoticon

Poor puppy!! I have a four month old yorkie that definitely makes working out at home hard for me. I also do not live in a good walking neighborhood but I do have a decent sized backyard that I walk her around in. Sadly I haven't been to my gym in almost a month. Here I am paying quite a bit of money a month and I haven't been going. I don't know why but I feel out of place there and I have no workout buddies to hold me accountable. I am thinking about taking a few group classes and seeing how those go. Maybe that'll help motivate me again? All I know is somethings got to give...

@SMNXN10 - isn't it amazing how the weather affects us and the choices we make. I find it more of a challenge to eat right when the weather is bad too... want all the "comfort" "not good for you" food.

@CICI510 - low levels are something to look at - good luck!

I am a little jelous that you both have a gym to go to. I have to strap on my boots, grab the umbrella and battle the elements when it gets cold and wet. Poor dog, I think she likes the rub down with towel when we get home though! I know I could work out at home but she needs to get her exercise too. She is another great motivator for me!

I wish my gym had an indoor track! I hate that if its yucky outside I have no other choice but to walk/jog on the treadmill.

Today is not much better as far as feeling tired. I wonder if some of my levels are low?

Oh, my gosh, it's the bad weather...I love to run outside, but the weather today is making it impossible, so I trained at the gym on a treadmill and indoor track. This was so frustrating to me that I cut my training short a mile.

OH CICI510 - that is fantastic! Way to go girl! Hope you got that tracker updated!

I did not have any real struggles today. Slept in and felt better. Been chugging ice water all day and I think that is helping too. Plan to sleep in tomorrow to kick this cold out.

Wishing you a Wonderful Wednesday! Keep Sparkin'!

@CICI510 - I love mixing it up, I enjoy borrowing different videos from library. You use them for a few weeks and take them back, free to enjoy at your leisure in your home! Always something new to try. PS - love the butterfly tracker!

I did a better job of tracking today.

My struggles are more personal today - lots of drama with work, friends and kids.
Hope to have a few conversations tomorrow and finish working it out.

Wishing the Best Day! TTFN

I've been working a lot of overtime these past 3 weeks and have neglected my diet, workouts, etc. I have to get back on track and figure some things out with regard to my schedule!

I hope everyone is well, pat

I believe in myself, I am a strong woman. I will reach my goals, NOTHING & NOBODY will hold me down. I will live my life with integrity and intention. I will set a good example for my daughters and my son. I will be a woman that makes my grand children proud when they look at pictures of me long after I've left this earth.

Yesterday I had a little bit of emotional eating and went over my calorie limit. Nothing horrible but I usually don't take that route. Still no grandbaby - she is really making us wait. My poor daughter is so disgusted with being pregnant and I don't know what to tell her anymore.

I was very active yesterday and, of course, got in my weights in the morning so there was much damage done - still feeling good. Thanks for letting me emote! Pat emoticon

I believe in myself, I am a strong woman. I will reach my goals, NOTHING & NOBODY will hold me down. I will live my life with integrity and intention. I will set a good example for my daughters and my son. I will be a woman that makes my grand children proud when they look at pictures of me long after I've left this earth.
