I agree .... procrastination ... I am a good procrastinator. I have been messing about for so long and getting nowhere.... I have to take some small steps to start with and get on track... instead of making excuses all the time. Thanks for the thought for today. emoticon

With me - I really couldn't see why I should change my life to lose weight when I was having a great time and no ill effects of being over weight!!
Yes I kept going on weight loss programs - token tries - but they didn't fit into MY life style and even though I kept being told I would suffer as I got older - its hard o see ahead when you are young!!
My knees crept up on me - and eventually they and Type 2 diabetes and blood pressure forced me to take action - I haven't regretted losing - I do regret not doing it sooner - but then I know I am not the only person who didn't listen, didn't want to hear as a younger person!!

THAT IS A GOOD QUESTION! I KNOW I DON'T HAVE ANY ANSWERS OTHER THAN SOMETIMES I AM JUST TO LAZY TO START OR THINK "WHY CAN'T I...".

Some of us are stubborn-- Oh I have great blood pressure, no diabetes, great cholesterol then all of a sudden it all happens at once-- some need that wake up call earlier or a dr who is gonna say This weight is going to kill you.. that is me!

One bite, one day, one pound at a time. Remember you are worth the effort!

Procrastination for me is idle hands and time. I am destined for disaster with this combination. I have made small changes from the beginning. A lot of my plan has been thinking about why I want to lose weight and how it will help me with my pain. After a lot of thinking I realized I had to start doing something. Thank goodness for the pool last summer. I couldn't stand walking because of the pounding on my spine and my bad knee. I swam at least 4 times a week. I didn't make any progress with weight loss. Money was really tight and we couldn't afford the fresh fruits and vegetables. Then, I found Sprouts. a local store that sells local farmers produce at unbelievable prices. Now I buy my fish, chicken and lean pork where it is on sale, all my produce at Sprouts and then whole grain pasta and brown rice. We eat the seasonal produce. Right now we are loving the Texas red grapefruit. I add kale to soups and stews. I started walking my dog again in January. At first it was a half block. Gradually we have increase our walks to 8 blocks twice a day. Pugsley and I are trimming down together.
I guess I kind of rambled here. The point that I'm trying to make is that to stop procrastinating I have to take the first step. It's not a race for me. It is a life long journey. Along the way I'm learning about me and what I want for my life.

I think for me it was such a huge thing in my mind on how to even start. When I started SP last March I did not feel motivated but doing the 3 small steps...10 minutes exercise...post goals...track food...gave me the small steps of direction to go in and then as I did those it felt good and then added other goals. The small baby step goals set me in the right direction and the baby step successes encouraged me to keep going..guess that means gave me motivation. Around Christmas I could feel myself slipping back into bad habits then it dawned on me if the small goals helped before do it again and that got me back on track again. I think we can make it too hard in our minds and need the small steps of direction to start and as we have success we want more...

My thoughts today are:
Why do we procrastinate so much when we know in our heart of hearts that the only way to lose weight and get fit is to eat well and exercise ?
