I don't wanna...

Tuesday, June 26, 2012

There are a lot of things I don't wanna do...

Pass up the icecream is one that comes to mind....

Same with not eating doritos.

How about exercising every day?

Yeah...I don't wanna...

But today I was perusing a bunch of sparkpages of people who I either "used to know" from previous years or people that I didn't know at all...and maybe it was just one of those days, but every single page seemed to feature a sparker who had lost a bunch of weight...then left spark for a time...then came back and admitted to having gained it all back plus some....and now are MIA and no longer around.

Of all the things I listed above...that last one is the biggest I don't wanna... I don't wanna fail at this process...I don't want to disappear and start the cycle again. I'm just tossing this out there now to make myself accountable.

    I will admit...I am one of those people. I lost 30 lbs about 5 yrs ago and was active on this site like you wouldn't believe. I watched everything I ate, stayed away from everything I was suppose to, walked everyday, worked out everyday and now here I am...I have gained about 1/2 of it back and although I do some "floor exercises" as I call it (lying adduction, lying abduction, planks, side planks, banana, superman) and I have been using a resistance bands to do row and I also do calf raises while putting on makeup or brushing my teeth and I throw in the occasional close-arm push-ups...I haven't done cardio in a long time and I don't watch everything I eat. I am not eating terribly but I can do better.

    I am finding its hard to get that focus back and although I am not 100% diligent, I am about 85& and to me that is better than 0% y'know. I'll get there again...afterall it IS my health!

    I'm feeling you on this one. This cycle is EXHAUSTING.

    We will not disappear again.

    We will finish this.

    You can do it!
    Everyday is a new day, a new opportunity to make good, healthy choices.
    Last night my hubby brought home dark chocolate chip brownie soft bake cookies...are you kidding he didn't know those would temp i'd be able to resist them...i decided to have one, then i promptly went down stairs and jumped on the eliptical. its about can have stuff like that, in moderation, and compensate with some extra cardio.
    I like to visit Kedamak's page occasionally, she has a quote on there that i absolutely love...something like "nothing tastes as good as this feels" and it is soooo true.
    again i say, You Can Do It!
    i'm hear for you!

    I'm one of those "ghosts" I was a member many years ago. Fell off the wagon, got fat, got skinny, got fat again, got skinny again and now i'm back at fat! Ugh! Not ideal, but never too late to pick another starting point!

    I may fall but I will not fail.
    I've noticed in the four months I've been here, lots of MIAs since I began. I wish you continued success on your journey.
    God Bless and Keep Smiling
