Beckafano, I just now saw your post. I hope you are feeling better about things - I think 13 pounds is fantastic, it's more than I've lost. I always hear that we should visualize how we want to look and feel, instead of beating ourselves down for where we are now. And you have already made progress, so definitely you deserve credit for that, rather than self-criticism. Think about how you would talk to a friend who was feeling discouraged, and talk to yourself that way. If it feels awkward talking to yourself, try writing it out in a journal or even in the "letter to a friend" format. Hang in there!

I saw a picture of myself that my husband had taken and I've been struggling with it ever since. I thought I was doing good, because i had lost 13lb, but after seeing that, it's hard to have hope.

They call it a diet, but it's really my life.

Struggling with follow-through today. I'm good at starting, not so good at keeping up with my plans. I'm sitting here trying to think of a reward to give myself for getting up and taking action, but everything I'm thinking of costs money. I've got a Sunday afternoon at home alone, a great time to tackle a project. Must just get up and set the timer and go.

I understand chaos. The funny thing is that I know I feel better when I eliminate some of the chaos. You would think it would motivate me to get everything clutter free! emoticon

Hope today is looking better, I can relate to your situation.
Everyday I struggle with the chaos around me. I'm not quite a hoarder but I do have piles of stuff and can't keep up with the decluttering that I know has to happen. Today, I am going to work in the kitchen--this is my commitment for the day. I intend to check back in tomorrow and report that I achieved significant progress!

Struggling with depression today. It just feels like a whole bunch of things hit me emotionally all at once. But I guess on the plus side, it's not the worst depression I've ever had.

Struggling with money issues. Struggling with follow-through when it comes to plans (food and otherwise). Struggling with loneliness and low-grade depression. Struggling with housework. Struggling with a spiritual crisis. The past few weeks have been difficult.

I hope they work for you. Good luck

First counseling apt went well. We've decided to work on relationship skills, anger and anxiety management and self esteem issues. I'm a bit nervous about it.

I'm also thankful I'm not as crazy and I thought I was. But I still don't know what to do. I found out that no one in the entire company likes my new boss. I thought I was the only one having trouble with her, but now I'm not sure what to do about it.

Becky, those are great suggestions. They fit with the turtle theory of weightloss that Spark encourages, SLOW and STEADY gets you where you want. Keep going, bit by bit and eventually major progress will be achieved!

I know I've said it before, but I often take one of a few approaches. #1 make a detailed list, the tasks seem smaller and less overwhelming and mark each one off as you do it, before you know it, there is a giant list of things you've done and you're motivated to do more. #2 only focus on one area of the house at a time, for example one room or one item and pretend, while your working on that one item, that nothing else exists, once your done and ready to move on to the next one, you'll get to look at one accomplishment while working on the next, it's great motivation to 'see' what you've accomplished. #3 Schedule it, don't wait till you have some free time, like exercise or taking care of yourself, it needs to be scheduled and you need to make an effort to fit it in, I often think of my home as part of my health, a healthy environment promotes a healthy life. Hope one of these helps someone.

My kitchen table is a foot deep----again--- and I must get it cleared off. Outdoor work hanging over my head as well: I must clear out my two little sheds that are attached to the deck as the plan is to replace the deck on May 18th wkend, Victoria Day long wkend in Canada.

Thanks. I always have such mixed feeling when I am off work. I am seldom off, but feel guilty when I return thinking about all the work I could have done.

Jackie, give yourself a break. You deserve a day or two or three off once in a while. Only worry if it lasts longer that a week or two.

So far doing good with the changes. I had a couple bad weeks recently, but I learned a couple things and then just tried to ride out the storm. This week was much better and I think I'm gonna wait a little while for the next change to give my body a little time to catch up.
.
I've also been noticing a change in the way my clothes fit and how my body feels in general, but I told myself not to get my hopes up or to get upset if I didn't actually loose weight. I got on the scale and lost 5lb. I'm so excited. That's the most I've lost at one time since I've been on Spark.

Never mistake failure as final

They call it a diet, but it's really my life.

Deciding what you want your life to be like is not hard. Deciding what you are willing to do and give up to get it, is the hard part.

I will do what I need to do in order to do what I want to do.

What you do and say is a reflection of who you are, so decide who you want to be and do it.

Suzanne - everyone has those days, just remember, they only last 24 hours and then you get to try again tomorrow morning. Always remind yourself that the last time you struggled it went away and it will this time too. Sometimes its the best you can do.

I'm struggling with whipping the house into shape! Got lots of laundry done today so the laundry area is looking better.

Beckafano, I'm sorry to hear about your kitty, and I hope all your changes are going well.

I am struggling to get things done, everything is taking so long and I keep getting lost in my new city. Now normal life is demanding my time away from moving in: laundry, shopping, cleaning etc.

Changes are going well for the most part, thank you for asking. I'm trying to be patient with myself, but it sure is hard. I started with changing some of my medication and weening off of some of it and adding some vitamines as a replacement. I'm seeing good results already but also some 'side effects.' I expected them, but that doesn't make them easy and sometimes its hard to be patient with the process, but I'm trying to keep my focus on the overall goal and the final outcome, not just how I feel today.

Hiya,
Struggling w/ getting back on track after knocked for indirect flu loop.
Was at DD's babysitting sick GS1&2. Got off track so many ways. Now fingers and toes crossed the flu shot has been continual coverage. So happy to be home. I had to cope w/ using DD's mobile to log in yesterday. I know one phone model I'm not going to get if I ever get a smart phone. I missed my 5Ktraining yesterday and today. Going to jump right back in first thing tomorrow morning by going to fitness center. Still haven't done the treadmill there. Would like to try at least. It's always occupied, especially by one guy whose name, according to others w/long habit there, as TreadMillHogGuy, lol.

The food issue was compounded by sick babies, a recent (I'm not very familiar w/him) boyfriend and futon sleep. Let's just say I'm home and can record and measure at least Dinner for today. I'm grateful to see how my life chaos settling down in general is showing me this is, NOW is my time to handle the food, fitness and mess issues.

BECKAFANO: my sympathies on your precious kitty emoticon . We had to put our little girl down 2 years ago after 14 years together. We were all just speaking of her Mon. night. I know you'll still be blessed w/ the memories of your times together.

I'm going to move on to some other tasks on SparkPpl then catch up around the house.

The Paper Grrrlll delivers each and every day!

Sorry, I've been MIA again. I'm working on some major changes in my life. I started an exercise program that I love and am keeping up with fairly well as well as a new Goal approach / plan. I'm working on changing / quitting some of my medications - after some research I believe I'm taking so much medication that it's starting to do more harm than good. At the same time I will be slowly adding in soem vitamines. After that is under control I think I will have a clearer head to start on my eating issues. I've also given up some extra activities like the Wednesday Woman's Bible study class, Celebrate Recovery at church and we told my niece she had to leave. It was hard, but I believe it was the right thing to do. I still love my job, but it sure keeps me busy, but that's a good thing. On a sad note, I did have to have my cat put down yesterday. We had her for about 10 years and she was MY baby. I was the only person she liked and I'm gonna miss our nightly petting ritual and our morning petting ritual followed by my sharing my breakfast with her. So I guess I'm on to a new phase of life, or at least I hope so.

I know that feeling. That was me on Sunday. And guess what, I barely got out of my pjs. Felt so good.

It takes so much out of me to worry about others. Need to stop that.

Goodmorning, I'm sitting on my couch drinking coffee in my new house, in a nice living room. The Xbox is even set up, some smaller people consider that a priority! BUT, through the doorway I can see a pile of boxes!!! I might have trouble getting off the couch today ...
