All our weight loss efforts - exercise, planning, tracking, figuring ranges - are all temporary unless we are kind to the person in the mirror. That person is the one we have to learn to love FIRST. Search out the positives........talk to the person in the mirror about those rather than all the hateful things you are used to saying. Learn to be your own best friend! It leads to a whole world of possibilities - not just in weight loss ...........
I tried going it alone on SparkPeople for awhile and found that being part of a team not only helps keep me motivated, but it helps me feel like I'm less alone in this journey. Choose wisely..........and choose groups that seem the most active and that will fill your own personal needs. I belong to a "challenge" team...........just what I need to keep on track!! YOU CAN DO THIS!!
Remember that every journey upon which we embark has roads that are full of potholes and detours. Do not let this discourage you from continuing on to your final destination! Weight loss is the journey, maintenance the destination. Learn from the detours, repair the damage from the potholes and move on!!
I have been on the SP site a grand total of 3 weeks even though I "joined" in January of 2010 and it's now December! The more I've explored and interacted, the more I've received back from the other members here. The key is logging in every day and interacting. You DO feel a part of things here that way.........and you DO get the support you need in your weight loss journey. Good luck!
I discovered Kroger brand Carbmaster Yogurt awhile ago - and the new flavor "Carrot Cake" makes me feel like I'm eating dessert when I'm not! Yoplait also has "dessert" flavor yogurts that are delicious. Keeps that urge to indulge at bay.
