Here I go again....

Friday, July 12, 2013

but hopefully NOT on my own, unlike the Whitesnake song. Yes, I'm a girl of the '80s and always will be. Hair bands and Heart, that's me. I've been trying to lose weight most of my adult life. At this point though, I'm heavier than I have ever been and I just can't live like this.

I registered for SP six or seven years ago and promptly disappeared. This time I'm back and I intend to stay back. I cannot do this on my own. I just can't. I need the support and encouragement of other people who know just how hard this is to do. I mean, you can give up drugs, alcohol, gambling, cigarettes, etc. but you have to eat. Not saying that those other vices are easy to overcome by any means but I think you get my drift.

This time I'm trying something new. I'm going to take baby steps. I may not exercise everyday or track my food or drink eight glasses of water. But I'm going to come to this site and log in every day. I'm not going to beat myself up for not being perfect and being able to do everything at once. I'm not going to say that I'm going to blog everyday because I may not. And that's okay.

I'm going to be fifty two in September and I want the second half of my life (see how optimistic I am?) to be healthy and filled with good things.

    You came back and that is the important part! When I first joined I didn't do anything with it either. Came back last month and taking it seriously this time and seeing positive results. Visiting the site daily is great! Also track your nutrition and fitness daily and join some teams for encouragement. You can do this. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Thank you for your note on my front page. I left you a note at the bottom of your front page, answering the question about hunger. Is it not showing up? But anyway, no I'm not having any cravings or hunger. The large juice/smoothies actually do keep me full for a long time. I don't even think about food very often. If I do, I just eat a few nuts & fruits, with a glass of almond milk. I love having you watch so closely with my program. The accountability does me good. It makes me want to stay on track, so I don't disappoint those who are watching.
    emoticon So it really keeps me in line. I look forward to watching us do this together. Hang in there.

    Ok, I only see this post. If you log in every day, you need to blog. :D If you come back up to Cherry Log, you have to let me know and we can get together for coffee or lunch or something!!!

    The water thing helps. If you drink coffee, you can count each cup as a 1/2 cup. So since I drink 8 cups a day (I know, I know), I've already got half of my quota out of the way.

    Hope you have been avoiding those nasty storms in St. Pete/Tampa area. Make sure you go get some awesome Cuban food before they close down the pier.

    Thank you for your comments on my blog. I do love the nutribullet. I've actually thought about buying another one, just to have in case this one breaks. lol I'm not prefect either....I'll have a piece of plain dark chocolate occasionally. And I haven't started my exercise program yet. I'm working on getting down the 'food' part first, and then I'll work on the exercise. I'm planning on starting to walk on Monday next week. With this being "my time of month", I'm not pushing myself to hard this week.

    You are doing great. Keep up the good work and find out what works for you!
    I look forward to us doing this together. emoticon
