Highs and Lows

Saturday, February 05, 2011

Well I made it to Edmonton and we are settled into our new home :)

My motivation is always up and down, I'm good for a couple of weeks and then i lose interest. Is this how it always starts out? I mean I really do want to lose the weight if not that even being more toned would be good. How do I stay motivated? My spouse to be is always saying I can do it, I know you can. Even my little girl likes watching me run on the wii. Even my eating habits are up and down, a couple of weeks I/we eat great and then its back down again. :( I just need a little more push and some more patients I guess.

I have managed to lose a 1 1/2 lbs and keep it off, that is a plus side. :) Now if I could just lose a little more.

If anyone has some ideas on how to get past the low points that would be great.

Have a great day all,

    Hello Jo-anne,
    As you see I have visited you on your page...and am guessing you are well and truely settled in now ? emoticon Have read your Blog and do you know , I am not surprised that you find yourself wavering from time to time motivationally . Let's face it moving "house" is huge in itself ! Then too, as we are moving into our Autumn and Winter you will be moving into your Spring and Summer. From what I have read and seen in the papers, and when I watch, TV the Winter in northerly regions has been pretty "rough" at times ! We all go into "downers" when constant snow, cold, rain and grey skies seem to be all but endless. A really good dose of sunshine is what is needed I think. Sometimes we women can judge ourselves so harshly , when really all we need to do is "slow down" a little, be kind to ourselves , take five and give ourselves a break... I am thinking you are doing better than you give yourself credit for ! emoticon Take care , and have a lovely week . Warmest,
