I need a good swift kick or something. I'm a back-slider in the exercise/healthy eating department. I was doing so well for the first two months of this year, lost about 13 lbs, was feeling great, tracking my sodium, started back to the Y, then kablooie. I'm disgusted with myself. And my ankles swell most every day because of it. And I've gained back about 8 lbs. I'm a mess right now. I have a lot of back pain so don't get around well in the morning, which is the only time I can go to the Y, but I think that, too, is a matter of disciplin. If I just pushed through the pain and got to the pool, I'd feel better. I've done it before, I could do it again. WHY IS IT SO HARD????
I just adjusted my weight from 204 back to 212, it killed me to do it, but maybe seeing that will be the motivation I need. I sure hope so.

I figured out what the deal w/ my exercise or lack of is b/c I was eating breakfast & trying to exercise. So, it got later & later until I quit all together. Now I eat a fruit & drink some water & then I exercise right away. I just need to figure out what I was doing all long & keep doing this. It's been over a week & I've been consistent & I plan on staying that way as long as I live now. It's getting into the nitch & rolling w/ it & not get discourage by the scale.
Every time I rely on Jesus He never lets me down. Faith + grace = salvation

Popped in and out of here off and on and I guess I hadn't posted. Got into an inactive streak, and trying to get back on plan. Too much stress eating as I work to finish my MBA (2.5 weeks to go!) So when I opened the group I got the "leader hadn't posted in 60 days" alert. Sorry about that.
Would love to have another be a co-leader if anyone is interested. Sparkmail me or respond here if interested.
