What now?

Sunday, March 27, 2011

Just feeling really lost on this journey. I get random bursts of motivation and I think I can take on the world and will lose the weight, but then next thing I know I'm at the grocery store buying pizza and ice cream. I'm going to Europe in about 2 1/2 months and I so badly want to be able to wear cute little dresses and shorts while I'm there. More importantly I want to be able to have my picture taken at the Eiffel Tower and at Westminster Abby, etc. I started looking at Jenny Craig and Weight Watchers, but it seems that they're not any better than what I can get at Spark for free. However, why CAN'T I stay on track. Why am I so weak? I'm scared to death to get on the scale tomorrow, but I guess I have to start somewhere. Hopefully I don't pass out when I see the number!

    I'm sorry that you're struggling. :( I am too. But every good decision you make will add up in the end,and 2 and a half months is plenty of time to make some good progress! You could drop 20 lbs by then if you stick with it! Imagine how good it would feel to get there and be 20lbs lighter!

    I have a wedding to go to in the beginning of July, so I'm setting a 3 month goal. I'm trying to focus on new ideas for what might work rather than all the stuff that hasn't these past three months. It's definitely easier said than done! Since it's the beginning of a new month I'm going to focus on doing everything I can to make this month great and not thinking about the long term stuff.

    I hope your week is going well! You can do it!!!!!! emoticon

    It's a never ending battle to eat healthy and exercise.

    There's going to be a couple Sparks walking at Highbanks on Saturday morning; check the C-bus boards for more information. Finding LIVE people will help more with staying on track. Almost all of my best friends I've met through Spark.

    BTW. Love the new profile pic.

    I have been in the same place as you..been trying to get back in the swing of things since Jan 1st. Have my ups and downs. I didn't meet my goals before heading to FL at the end of Feb and have slid back even further since then as I head to FL again. Not really digging the idea of putting on a swimming suit..but plan to enjoy myself just the way I am and not give up for the long term.
    Trying to get back in the upswing these last several days and just get back to the basics of eating fruits/veggies before junk...drinking 8+ glasses of just get back into my cardio routine again and have a plan for the week. Hopefully I can continue these small steps as I go on vacation and not gain any weight while I am there.
    Step by by all you can do. Try not to focus on the number on the scale as your last blog on 1/ were so positive then focusing on those things as well. You will do your own time. Don't give up and certainly don't let anything put a damper on your exciting trip :)

    this sounds like something i would have written. and of course i have no answer. something that helped me was a picture of my back fat. its what people see when they are behind me and my motivation has taken on a whole new meaning. keep posting blogs. the support on sparks will help alot. good luck, you got this! (you can see my back fat picture in my album if you want to be scared)
