Getting Started...

Friday, July 26, 2013

This is about my 3rd time on SP and my last 2 times were not successful at all. Now that I am dealing with many health problems, it seems more important than ever for me to get down to a healthy weight. My highest weight ever was a few months ago at 265. I am down to 244 but that is mostly from starvation and not making healthy decisions. I am now pre-diabetic and I have to take medications for my moods being very unstable. My husband is very supportive but it is hard to cook healthy around him because he eats whatever he can find, whenever. I also have IBS and gastritis, so I deal with abdominal pain almost everyday. I have lower back problems so trying to go for walks is very painful 99% of the time.

We just made a big move to another part of the state we live in and I am trying to be hopeful but that is hard to do some days. He is working longer hours and I am stuck at home. I have led a sedentary life for most of my adult life and understand that in order to lose more weight I have to get off my bootay and do some exercising, but I really do lack the motivation to get up. I was doing very well with doing crunches and doing 10 minutes walks before we went on vacation and getting back in the groove is proving to be difficult as well.

I have to gain the motivation mentally, as well as physically, in order to achieve my goals of losing all this excess weight!

    I had my handful of unsuccessful attempts on Spark as well... well they were successful in the fact I lost about 40 pounds, but unsuccessful because I gained them all back. This 3rd time was a charm for me and it can be for you too!
