Always re-starting, never getting close to the finish line!

Friday, January 28, 2011

Here I am in France earlier this month...eating normal portions...a little wine with dinner...walking EVERYWHERE.

Yet, when I come home...why do I always revert back to old habits...eating in front of the TV, snacking when I know I shouldn't, walking NOWHERE.

I'm an intelligent woman...in my 34th year of teaching. Yet, when it comes to taking care of myself, I'm doing an awful job of it.

I've lost the same 30 pounds so many times I've lost count. Got to realize that I'm worth it! We all need to realize that we're worth it!!

    Have you ever thought of hiring a personal trainer? Maybe someone outside your close circle of friends and family can give you the necessary motivation to lose the weight for good.

    I blogged about this a while back, about how saying "starting over" may be a negative way to do it.


    Hope this helps!

    I too always feel that I'm restarting. Lose some then gain some back, etc. It is a journey!! We just have to keep hanging in there and if it means re-starting every once in a while, so be it! At least keep re-starting and don't just stop!!

    Isn't that the truth, Diane. Rich & I have to travel somewhere to get back into walking but we're bound and determined to start some good, healthy habits this year and take care of ourselves. We are getting back into Weight Watchers and he's started back at the gym and has been good about working out. It's a start. Wish we lived closer so we could be walking buddies!!

    YOU ARE DEFINITELY WORTH IT!!!! We want you healthy and around for a long, long time. We have so much fun together!!!

    We have to keep trying. If I didn't try all those times to quit smoking, I never would have quit. It seemed to take forever but it finally happened, as frustrating and emotionally draining as it was. It finally paid off. Hang in there, Diane.

    Yes, my friend, you ARE worth it. You are a physically beautiful woman, at whatever weight. So losing weight just couldn't make you a bit cuter. BUT it will make you healthier and ward off diabetes, heart disease and some forms of cancer. I just keep holding that up to myself. I need to remind myself of that just before I scoop up a large bowl of coffee ice cream (my personal weakness). Thanks for sharing and GO GET EM!
