Time for a reality check with myself. I am fat. I am overweight. This is my reality. I need to decide what I want to do about that.
Fact: I have been on Spark for SIX years and have not really lost any weight. Oh I would lose a pound or two and then gain it back again.
Fact: I have diabetes and am on insulin which can make it hard to lose weight.
Fact: I often feel that I have no control over this weight issue.
Fact: I am leader on some teams but I am not active on any of them any more.
Fact: I feel I am drifting through this and getting no where.
So what should I do? Do I give up? Do I fake it 'til I make it?
All I know is this can not continue. It is bad for my health. It is a bad example for my grandkids. It is getting me no where.
Fact: to lose weight, I have to eat less. Measure more. Stop the excuses.
Fact: to lose weight, I have to move more.
Fact: to lose weight, I have to eat more veggies.
Fact: to lose weight, I have to stop eating at night because I lose all control once I start.
Possible: I may need to leave some teams and join others - then become active to get the support I need.
Possible: I may need to keep the friends who support me on a regular basis and let the others go.
Fact: to get support, I need to give support. A smaller friend circle will help me do this. I need to think on this one.
Fact: I have started new spark streaks to help me do this.
I will lose 3 pounds for real this month.
Time to get REAL.
