Why am I doing this?

Thursday, November 06, 2014

I cannot seem to get back onto a good eating and exercising program this fall. I am still about 10 pounds over my good weight and I find myself trying to understand why I even care. One of my most motivating reasons is to fit into my clothes. Right now I am not fitting into most of my pants. Skirts are still fine. But really, is this a reason to spend so much time and energy thinking about my weight? I am starting to feel like it is sinful, for lack of a better word, to spend so much time focusing on how I look. I don't think I will ever find the consistency I want without honestly answering this question.

    Maintain your weight is hard and that is a fact. You just have to keep trying .

    In always say mind into gear before you eat and also go for a short walk help.

    You will get there but don't keep thinking about it as life goes on.

    Good luck

    It seems like we all have our hard questions. Why do I eat stuff I know is bad for me, even when I know that it will actually make me feel bad? The self-control issue is big for me. Whatever it is we struggle with, there is always a spiritual dimension to it. I will keep you in my prayers. emoticon
