My first blog....

Monday, April 30, 2012

Over the past five years I have been out of control. I lost my self esteem and my will power. Im not sure what really happened, but I just feel awful about myself and in turn I dont take care of myself. I have gained over 50 pounds in the last five years and have been eating horribly. Starting in March I decided that I wanted my life back, I wanted to feel better about myself and I wanted to lose weight. But the problem is, I dont really know where to start, I do in my head, but it just doesn't transfer to real life.... I know to eat healthier to exercise more, but I keep falling off track. When I first started out I was going to the gym every day and eating great. But then the people I was working out with decided that it wasnt for them and it took too much time and effort, so therefore I was less motivated to go to the gym. I am trying to stay on track but its hard, especially when people ask you to go to lunch or dinner, and there are all kinds of treats at work. I need to find my will power to say away from sweets and things that are bad for me. My goal is to lose 30lbs by the time I go to Disney world in November. I really would like to lose all 50 but Im not sure that is realistic which the way I have been going. I have joined a ton of sites trying to find motivation and help making meal plans, but all of the meal plans I have seen have foods I have never tried and some I have never heard of and I just dont have the money to buy something I dont end up eating.....well thats all for now. I will update my progess next Monday to see if I do any better.

    You have definitely come to the right place! Everyone here at Spark people is welcoming and helpful and very supportive. We're all going through the same thing. You can do it, just take one day at a time.

    Take the time to look at Spark people recipes. I've made several and my family loves them and doesn't even realize they are healthier than what we had been eating.

    30 lbs by November isn't an unreasonable goal, actually it's very attainable. Just keep working and it and don't let yourself get sidetracked by others. If you find yourself wavering, come back to this site and read other's blog and the message board, it will get you motivated again! Good luck!
