Being honest ..

I have slipped off the wagon ! Desperate to get back on and bought Spark Coach, I dont know if anyone else is having this problem but I feel sort of overwhelmed ! I have decided just to go back to the very start and begin over again like I never lost any weight at all , I am 40 pounds down but want to start right from where I am now,
One of the ideas I had is to just concentrate on one thing for each week and having accomplished that then to add another goal and progress etc etc.
So Spark Coach said it was a good idea to join the ten minutes a day Spark Challenge and then a few days later to join the BOOT Camp Challenge !
I havent even finished the Ten Minute Challenge , although I am doing more then ten minutes a day !
I wanted to follow the program to a T but I feel I really need to ingrain habits first before adding new ones ! Also I belong to a few teams that are fantastic but spreading my self out over whelms me ! So I am going to just do one team :) and concentrate on tiny teeny goals over time !
I love Spark Coach dont get me wrong but I need to really retrace my steps one step at a time and also teams and challenges take more time ! Its not ten minutes a day by the time I log in food and exercises minutes , comment on a fews friends pages , log on to my team and read a few articles and mark off my goals for the week ! Anyone else feeling over whelmed and have advice ?
I love the thought for the day and the videos , Today I will try to make my vision board.

    I know exactly what you mean. It can be so difficult. SP could make it sooo much easier if they would make an app for us to access SP from our smartphones....

    The only advice I can suggest is whatever you choose to do little and often will achieve the best results over time. If you do the right thing and you know for sure you are doing the right thing the ultimate weight loss and better health will prevail.
    Just hold in there and be patient - like what I am trying to do and I no doubt you will come through even better for it.

    I think you have hit the nail on the head. Feeling overwhelmed, dump some non-essentials and step back. But keep the basics in place. I've discovered Leslie Sansone "Walk at Home" videos and doing one mile of her video before meals is a great way to get in the 30 minutes daily very efficiently.

    Good for you for seeing a cliff and backing away from it. Most of us seem to share the "all or nothing" thinking error. You're smart to sense you need some corrections to hang on to your 40 pound loss and continue. emoticon

    emoticon on your weight loss and especially your skillful thinking!!!

    Definitely work on the basics and just include other things as you feel you can. Sparkpeople is a tool to help so use it how you need to for success. I concentrate on tracking my nutrition, weight, and fitness and anything else I have time for after that. Also when I need motivation, I spend more time on the website. Good luck with your journey to a healthier you!

    This is the perfect time of year to get outside and really take it in, breathe and distress! Get out there, it really helps me! You are really the only one who has the answers to what you need so trust your instincts so do single yourself down, like you said, less teams and don't feel like you HAVE to comment on every blog or action, stick with what motivates you. You've got this, one step one day at a time!
