A change of focus

Thursday, June 13, 2013

It is ages since I wrote a blog but last night as I got into bed I realised that for some reason I stop myself succeeding. When I have a good weight loss week I will follow it by a weight gain. If i follow my diet plan well I wont exercise. If I exercise well I will end up eating things that I know I shouldn't. I have a wonderful and faithful spark buddy who said this week that she has an urgent need to get on and lose weight. The urgency is catching but with "ME" getting in the way and sabotaging my good efforts I needed to do something different. I have used most of the tools at spark people over time particularly the trackers and the community. But I haven't really bothered about the spark points other than to log my login points. So today I have shifted my focus onto the spark points. I have joined a sparkpoint challenge in one of my teams and I will work through the sparkpoint list each day. I hope that this will keep me active on all aspects of the site, will make me track my food , exercise and water intake daily and will keep me hooked in to the motivational videos and articles. Lets see if I manage to break my self destructive behaviour and move forward towards my goals again

    True! Collecting sparkpoints really helps! So that's what we are going to do from now on. Let's keep a log!

    I thought about you yesterday, could see your picture in my mind but not your ID. I am SO glad you wrote this blog because it had been a while since I heard from you and now I know why.

    By the way, I Do The SAME Thing!! Exactly the same thing. I am so glad your wrote it because we can support each other. Thanks for your honesty since it helped me. emoticon
    Love, Chelsea emoticon

    P.S. Maybe we can journal about the times we do it and why we do it to help us figure out how to stop it.

    Great idea! I think I'll try to do the same. I love how you're not giving into your self destructive behavior. I could learn from that!
