Time flies, weight can't get off the ground.

Wednesday, August 10, 2011

I'm going to ramble so be forewarned. I joined SparkPeople two years ago and haven't changed a thing. Same whines, same sizes. WHAT is it going to take??? "If I can do it, you can." I hear that. Yet, why can't I be the one saying it? Well, here I go yet again. I work with a woman doing weight watchers. She has her support system which includes family and friends that go to the meetings together. She has lost 42 pounds thus far. Every week I hear everyone complimenting her and singing praises. I sit there feeling like a failure. How dare she go and lose weight and leave me behind in a melting pot of fat? My son. He has been on a health kick all this time too. He's lost quite a bit and not just eating better and/or right, but he is exercising. Works out just about everyday. If I started when he did, I'd be down 40 as well. But no...I grumble and mumble and hide the ice cream dishes. Yes, still "sneakin' snacks." So what...when. What has to happen for me to do something. I can't have anyone else do it for me. I've considered online Weight Watchers, but not sure I'd stick with it. What turns that switch on in someone when they finally begin their journey with success?
I got on the treadmill today. First time in months. Figured with summer here, the thought of working up a sweat too much to handle. But I did it. It's cooler in the basement anyway. I am so so tired of being the largest one every where we go. I'm getting older. Not much time left to look at least halfway decent. I can lose 40 now and look nice, but if I wait until I'm 80, I'm still gonna be ugly. Negative feelings today. I just hate being "left behind." I want the medal too!!

    I feel the same way all the time. I have tried the Special K Diet, it works but gets expensive after a while. the weight watchers and all those other programs are too expensive for me and i dont want to go every week to a meeting/weigh in. im embarresed as it is.

    All i can say is pack all your food for the day in containers, and plan your dinner for the evening. this has helped a little bit for me. I also keep bags of chocolate at the back of the freezer, like kisses or fun sized hersheys. i split it up in sandwich bags (3 kisses or 2 herseys) and since its in the back i have to suck on them, this helps the chocolate atacks.

    Can i add u as a friend and we can exchange tips and tircks?
