Here we go again.

Yep. Another try. You would think I'd be black and blue from as many times I have fallen off this 'wagon'. Sometimes I wonder why I keep trying. I really want to, I really do. Even as I sit here I feel like a failure.

This site is awesome. So many great tools at my disposal and what do I do? Talk big and go gung ho for a week then it falls by the wayside when I get stressed or sidetracked. Then find myself eating whatever I can find.

The sad thing is, what should be motivating me is working against me. I think back to what I once was and my health problems now and I get depressed. I feel horrible for letting myself get to this point (mainly for allowing myself to balloon while pregnant. You know, the 'I can eat for two' thing). Then there's the issues where I feel either tired or sore so I tell myself I'll exercise later. Either way, it's a fail.

I can read motivational articles til my eyes blur. It helps for awhile, then like I said, I slide back into my rut. How will I ever get my bearings back?

    Holy Crap!!! Thanks for writing the blog that I should be writing too!!! LOL

    If you think about it, it isn't rocket science to lose weight.... watch what you eat, move as much as possible. BUT.... stress, life, donuts, hormones, work, family, TV, etc invades our brain & we go off the deep end.

    And I started this year saying that I wasn't going to scale-hop & I wasn't going to let the # on the scale define my success... rather how I feel, how my clothes feel, and knowing that I am making the best choices be my measure of success. AND YET, what have I done every day???? SCALE HOPPED.!!! What have I been letting that Evil Scale Troll do to me??? Measure my success!!!

    WTF - I am my own worst enemy LOL.

    Ok, where was I... oh right, trying to make you feel better & help you find the "magic spark" ... and yup, that's no where to be found in this comment. BUT hopefully it got you to laugh & know that you are not alone. OK - let's go drink a glass of water to celebrate!!
