I just got some advice from a fellow spark friend about journaling & taking pictures to track my progress. I do this from time to time but I always seem to lose focus & momentum when I can't "SEE" my progress. So I guess it is time I start writing down how I am feeling daily as a reminder of my lifestyle changes I am so desperately trying to make.

When I look back at where I used to be, I kind of get discouraged because I have gained back most of the weight that I lost. However, it does give me the push that I need sometimes not to eat from emotional issues or just plain ole boredom!! So this is just random thoughts that I am having now.

I attempted to get my 60 min of cardio in but was only able to complete 25 min. I PLAN to finish the other 35 this evening as well as strength train too. I think its time I do another motivation collage...well a couple of them to keep in places I know I will be as a reminder of what I am working for. I know I can do this

    I believe in tracking my progress and my feelings. When I write out my plans and plan my daily actions... I feel I must finish every task at hand. I have no room for error, that's my day to day motto, and I believe in having faith in what I can do. We are in the same boat. We lost the weight and have gained most of it back, but we keep on pushing and doing our best -we must push, and have faith in what we are doing. Keep on logging, working towards your goals, and start taking pics of your progress and look at them. Trust me. The mirror tells me the truth, but the scale just gives me false hopes. You know, the scale likes to yo-yo around. Up 2 down 2.
    Keep on doing you and loving life to the fullest... YOU GOT THIS!

    I am with you. Wish I had taken some pics to show the journey. For days when I need the motivation or just to be reminded of the changes. Took some legs, but was sure to bury them in a blog post. Haven't been great about blogging, but need to start. Am working on one now. I am long winded and am afraid that my scattered thoughts will confuse.

    Think it is an accomplishment that you recognize the emotional and boredom triggers. I am learning those things and that is a blessing, because I wasn't in touch with them before.

    You can do it! All the best:) Keep blogging....

    Boy, can I relate to what you said! LOL I always start out full-steam-ahead, then burn-out and lose focus. I am trying to begining all over again and take it slow but STEADY!! This will be a challenge for me.

    Best of luck to you. You can do it!
