On and off the wagon I go

Saturday, November 07, 2009

Hi, my name is Sarah and have been with SP for 1 and half years now. Now I just wanna say that I love SP and found it immensely helpful (it helped me lose 60 lbs in just over a year) but I have trouble keeping motivated and often seem to slip up. I have recently just finished a Msc and started a new job so for the last 6 months (I am so ashamed to say this), I have not really been using SP and have a bit of the weight back on! I went from 15 stone to 11 stone and now am around 12-13 (but to be honest I don't know to well the exact weight because I'm too afraid to weigh myself). I want to get back into to things - eat healthily, go to the gym, etc. I did feel a lot better when I was in the swing of things because I felt fitter and stronger but recently have felt blobby and kind of weak. I want to get back to before but I don't how. You would think that I should know how to do his but I seem a bit lost now and my motivation has gone. When I was doing my masters I was too busy to exercise and thought that would soon change but now I have to travel 1 and half / 2 hours each way to work because I'm currently commuting from my parents place since my job is only temporary and quite yet move back to London til I have a more job security and can get the guarantee that I can pay the bills unassisted.

I got to get back into the game but am finding it hard. Anyhow, hopefully I will be back working out, eating really well and start posting again.

    Hey I understand what you're going through because I've been there myself. I'd like to invite you to my page and to read some of my blogs because I've written about some of the same issues. I love visitors! Congrats to you on several things -- losing 60 lbs. and getting your masters. Both awesome accomplishments!!

    Well, now you know you can do it, but it is time to figure out how to fit the changes into your life so they are part of the other routines. Maybe you have to modify exercise plans to fit the schedule and use the gym workouts as a treat. Ten minutes here and there in a day can keep things on track. See which habits worked to help you be successful and then see where they would have fit into the last two weeks. That can help you plan for the next week or so.
    Enjoy the refinement! You will make it happen ! emoticon
