Off to a good start, but can I keep it going?

Sunday, July 03, 2011

Well I am on Day 8 of my new, life long jourmey to losing weight and keeping it off. This next week will be very important for me, as this is when my motivation starts to slip.

I lost 10 lbs countless times in the last 10 years only to gain it back. It is funny, as soon as I start to feel as bit better, I will relax and slip into old habits. I know it will be different this time though.

I have used the tracker before and tried to exercise. I have come to realize I need more than that to succeed. I need all of you here on sparkpeople. I have been spending alot more time reading blogs, looking at posts, reading receipes. I have come to realize that in order to have success, I am going to need the help and encouragement I get from sparkpeople.

I need to learn how to love myself. I seem to struggle with self-sabbatoge....does anyone else do this....I don't know why I do this.....

This blog is all over the place as I stuggle to understand myself and the reasons I look to food for things that I readily have available to me. (Love/Friendship/Family) I have no excuses for my behaviour...time to shape up and forge forward.

Keep Sparkin! emoticon

    Try not to make TOO many changes all at once...work on two or three at a time and when you have those changes down to regular habit add another and ramp it up.... do the same , make that change a habit before ramping it up again. It works and you will find that you stick with your changes instead of slipping back into old/bad habits.

    emoticon emoticon YOU ARE WORTH IT! make that your mantra every time you feel yourself doubting this journey.... I AM WORTH IT... I AM WORTH IT....

    Do one good thing for yourself today and then honestly appreciate that it was good and that you were the cause of it. Then put more of those together. You aren't perfect, but you are capable of being fantastic. One choice at a time. You can do it.
