Denial – Not a River in Egypt!
Friday, February 20, 2015
Well, I’m still here, and still trying to get back into a regular weight-loss routine. Unfortunately I’m still not having much luck. I think frustration is getting the better of me.
There are a few things I’ve figured out though…
It’s definitely easier to gain weight than it is to lose…
Why is that???
Exercise doesn’t happen “naturally” for me any more.
It was much more fun to exercise when I was 10!
Winter is a bad time to decide to increase your exercise minutes.
Unless you count walking the dog in the rain….
… or shoveling yourself out of your front door (for my friends in the East)
I thought for awhile that if I just continued with what I was doing maybe the weight would somehow “magically” start melting away. (I hear you can go a little crazy in the winter)
My SparkFriends, Spark teams and the support they provide is VERY important to decreasing my frustration and increasing my chances of success.
I need to stop trying to convince myself that all of the fitness tracking, water drinking and calorie counting is wasting my time
So I’ve decided maybe doing the same thing that hasn’t worked for me in the past probably WON’T work for me in the future.
It’s time for a new plan and a new commitment.
… and maybe some new results
