Finding my happiness with SparkPeople Again...

Monday, June 10, 2013

I sat down on Friday night and read a bunch of my blogs I have written on Spark. A recurring theme was happiness. I was so happy at the time in my life and I have really come to see that right now I am not happy...

For nearly 3 years I have fought with yo-yo dieting. I start off strong and then my motivation waivers. I find excuses in the things around me - my kids, my husband, where I live, our schedule and use them to stop myself. Keeping me in this viscous cycle of yo-yo dieting and unhappiness. I want that happiness that I read in my old blogs - even through tough times and stress I kept trudging through the workouts and lost weight, so I know I can do it now!!

I can't change the things around me; the excuses can no longer be the excuses because they will always be there tomorrow. But my happiness won't be unless I start working at finding it. I know I am happy with when I workout, eat healthy, and look good!!

I know it is the 10th, but I am going to set my June Goals:
* Track my food and workouts
* Blog once a week
* Drink my water and then a little more!
* Not weighing myself - going by how I feel or how the clothes are fitting!

If you blog and you haven't done it - go back and read some of your first entries and then some in the middle of your weight loss... it puts life in perspective!!!

    You are wise to start NOW, even though it's the 10th. Sometimes it's hard to get back on track, but the longer we wait, the harder it is. I've been on a low streak myself lately but I will NOT give up. Hang in there and just make those small changes and build the habits you need to get healthier and happier!
