so.. as it seems.. while i was on my way to losing weight and getting healthy.. i lost my way.. i got side tracked and lost and am just now trying to find my way back ... thing is... the way to lose weight is a tough climb.. it seems its all up hill .. and the way im going now.. a slippery slope.. so easy to go down ... but im trying to get back on track and back to exercising and hoping that since the holidays are past me and temption wont be at every corner i can fix this. Im actually terrifed of the scale.. can u believe that? it makes no sense... i mean.. whether i get on the scale or not.. im still the same size but i cant bring myself to get on it.. oh well just another obsticle i will have to overcome .. and im sure i can do it... im not alone.. i tell myself all the time.. im not alone.. i can always come here .. to people who understand.. WEll wish me luck and send me strength :)

    Your steps back will become shorter and closer together as your progress in the journey! All that matters, is that you keep coming back!

    Take care!

    Maybe cleats will help?
    Sorry, that was my attempt at making you smile :)
    I've been there, multiple times this time around, but as long as you don't throw that towel in completely you're doing good. Baby steps and if losing is to hard, make a goal to maintain for a couple weeks then up the exercise (time and intensity)and decrease calories. Decreasing stress and getting quality rest will help too, more than I can tell in mere words!

    I'm in the same place, friend, and we are BOTH going to lick this!! Let's check in with each other each day and see how we are doing for the next week or so. Maybe that will stimulate both of us to get back on track. I'm thinking of you and struggling right along with you. emoticon the emoticon

    You surely not alone. We all go through some up and down slope, but the great thing is you have noticed it and ready to get back on track. That's a start a great accomplishment. I wish you the best of luck on your weight lost. :) emoticon

    Good Morning Pat,
    You are certainly not alone. That's what you gotta love about SparkPeople.
    I respond to only one blog per day (to get a sparkpoint) and you would be surprised how many entries I see that are much like yours. People get discouraged, rue the holiday binge, don't think they'll ever make it.
    So much is up to you but as a SparkPeople community we owe it to you send as much encouragement your way as possible. So here goes:
    -Everything you've eaten up to this point is water under the bridge. No amount of guilt, regret, depression, etc. will take away the calories you've already swallowed. So forget about it. The good news is that everything you're going to eat in the future is totally under your control.
    -Don't focus on what you can't eat. Heaven knows we all miss large slabs of cheesecake, country-fried whatever w/ gravy, etc. but there are so many wonderful things that we can eat - just check out the SparkRecipes (perhaps start a blog asking people what their favorites are and then give them a try)
    -Excellent news that you don't have the diabetes and other obesity-related diseases. Losing the weight now will throw a permanent barrier between you and those diseases.
    -Last of all (one I told my Mom the other day): The biggest favor you can do for your family is to stay healthy now and into your old age.
    I hope this helps and may God bless your efforts with a new freedom to eat right.

    You know you have to do this for YOU! take it one step at a time. Start with the minutes you can put in everyday and work your way up from there.
    Wishing you great success towards your goals to better health and fit you!!! emoticon emoticon
