Starting Over

Saturday, January 02, 2010

Well it's a new year and I realized I haven't accomplished much with my weight loss since I joined back in July '07. I'm reading the "Spark" and it woke me up on things. I know I'm not doing something right and I have to find out what it is. I definitely know that I cannot have goodies, whether it's a piece of chocolate or a cookie because like an alcoholic, I can't have just one. I was on a roll before Christmas came and all the goodies with it, and because of it I put a couple of pounds on and I have that bloated feeling all over again.

Spark Guy was talking about his collage and I realized I never made mine, so that is on my list of to do's. I also sat down last night and set up some goals on what weight I want to be by what date. It is so hard for me to drop 5 lbs but I set goals for 6 weeks apart and this time I will do it. I can't believe I've been with SP for over 2 1/2 years and I started out at 167 and I'm only 153.....that is sad. I know what my problem is....I will be so motivated and all and all of a sudden I fall back. I'm still counting my calories and doing I think the right things but it's those darn GOODIES. I live in a junk food house.....DH doesn't have a problem...I do.

I think I'm gonna go back to the beginning with the Stage 1 and so on. I also find myself logging what I eat, and I think it's healthy, and not eating what is set for the day. I think part of my problem is not eating the right food at the right time.

I also need to get more involved and ask for HELP.

Well today is day two....tomorrow will be day three.....I have to do it this time.
I'm tired of all this..................

    I agree also. I live in a house with four children and try as I may to limit the amount of junk food that comes into the house it seems like it reproduces on its own. I too am trying to stay motivated this time to actually get this weight off. I think the key is to find people willing to help you stay on track and motivate you when times are tough. Hang in there. It can be done.

    I think you and I could have written the same blog...I certainly understand what you are going thru. My biggest mistake is going away from SP when I'm not doing good. I guess you said it real clear - ASK FOR SUPPORT. I haven't done that either, and maybe that's the problem. Thanks for sharing - you have helped me see something else that I need to work on! Together we can all do this!! Thanks and Happy New Year!
