Hi CRESENTMOONS I agree, Please start treating yourself like your best friend. Do and say the things that you would do for her.
Are you trying to take on too much and feeling overwhelmed? Try to break down your goals into small ones that you know you can achieve. How many times do you feel you need ot work out a week. If it is 6 try starting with only 3 a week and when you are consistent with that add one more on and so on. Same with food don't be so restrictive that you are depriving yourself all the time. Take time to look at what you are doing and see where you can let the reigns out a little until you feel comfortable with that goal. Hope some of this makes sense.
Wishing you a successful day!

Keeping active is so important! classylady~Geri
Sorry, I have no reflections, just a feeling of overwhelm again. I could spend my whole day on SP, but when would I do any exercise? I had to quit this group and then re-up, just because I didn't know how to re-set the frequency with which I received messages from the group. LOL I feel stunned that the morning is gone. I need to detach from the computer, but it is just another obsession.

You need to treat yourself the way you treat others. You wouldn't beat up(verbally) a friend you had messed up what she was trying to do. You would encourage her to keep going anf not give up. Apply that same type of thinking to yourself.

There are two options regarding committment - your either IN or your OUT. There is no such thing as life in-between.

Hope you're having a great Monday so far! You should always encourage YOU...you're worth it!! Promise yourself that next weekend you will get through, without beating yourself up, and following your plan the best way you can. Once you get that one weekend under your belt... you will be so proud of yourself and have the tools to handle the next weekend, and the next and next...

Monday's always seem to be my start over days. I keep telling myself one of these days I'm going to make it through a weekend staying on track and really feel great for Monday morning to come! After another rough one this weekend and a total lack of exercise I think my goal for the week days is to stay on track calorie wise and on the weekends add in as much exercise as possible to make up for the bad eating habits. Maybe if I'm moving all weekend I won't have time to be shoveling in those bad foods KWIM? :-)

I can relate to Monday mornings, especially today. We attended my younger son's birthday celebration at Zio's last night... I ordered grilled steak and potatoes... but ate ALLLL the potatoes and then had dessert... GRRRR... but.. Today... back on the bandwagon.
Hi Everyone Had a rough weekend but am trying to stay positive. I am trying to balance the desire to loose weight with the tendency to beat myself up. I really say mean things to myself when I do not feel good about my body and I want to stop that whatever size I am. Sometimes When I eat poorly and am able to say to myself "its ok tomorrow will be better or one step at a time" it is the only time that I really say kind things to myself. Does that make sense?? And maybe that is why I "cheat" or miss a work out cause I want that encouragement from myslef. I do not know we will see how this week goes but I am getting there. Sorry for the ramble Have a great Monday!!
