I'm sure a lot of people struggle this time of year.

Monday, December 20, 2010

It seems that I always reassure my self that I'm not going to be like my mom - overweight. In the past I have joined weight losing programs, joined gyms and monitor what I eat, but here I am, the heaviest I've been while not pregnant - 182lbs. I currently have a membership to the Wellness Center through my employer, but don't attend regularly. I've been a memeber of Spark for a few months, and use to tools off and on. I struggle daily with the guilt of my weight and how it affects my life. In addition to the stress of the holidays, this next two weeks just make it tough. I brought some work out clothes with me today...and it just stares at me. With so much to do, presents to buy, I already have so many reasons not to go. I know it starts with me, now I just have to do it. emoticon

    If you can just start doing little things, things that you know you can do, walk around your neighborhood for 10 minutes, whatever, it will over time turn into a habit. The Spark book is right, start slow your just not going to become super eater and workout chick because you want to, you have to move into it one step at a time. Changing your routine and eating habits overnight just sets you up to fail. It's taken me since February to get up to walking 3 or 4 miles a day and now it's a serious habit for me but it's taken months. and months to get to this way and re-reading the Sparks book, reading blogs, articles and coming here every day for me to finally feel like I'm getting it, I'm doing good. Making yourself feel bad will set you up to fail. It's a one day at a time thing, be nice to yourself your still trying so you haven't failed!

    You're right this time of year really sucks sometimes...BUT you can do it! Stay focused because you are worth it! Even if you work out for 30 mins...bring your ipod listen to some great tunes, watch tv, read a book and before you know those 30 mins will fly by and you can get on with your errands! You got this chica ; )
