CHANGING-VICKI, I'm so sorry for your disappointment this morning. As NANCYPAT1 said, it would be great to develop a plan to help you change your lifestyle and eat healthy and exercise. That's what I'm trying to do and I know it's very hard. Maybe you could plan to make a few small changes at a time so they will become a healthy habit.
I'm doing 10 minutes of exercise daily now, which doesn't sound like a lot, but it is for me.
And sometimes, it turns out to be a few more than 10 minutes (every little bit helps!) I'm also tracking my food on the nutrition tracker and looking at the report daily to see what I'm getting too much of and too little of.
I'm spending a lot of time on SP and in groups like this one so that I can stay motivated. What's your hardest challenge? Mine is to give up (or really cut down) sweets/chocolate. I also struggle with nighttime overeating, but the nutrition tracker helps with that, plus I try to get on SP and interact with others or watch music videos to distract me from eating, or go to another room (besides where the TV is) and read a good book, or go ahead and brush my teeth so I won't be temped to eat anymore that night. I have ups and downs - days when i do better than others. But thanks to Spark, I'm having more good days than bad days, now.
Good luck, and let us know how we can help!
