I saw my doctor today for my physical and now wait for my test results on thyroid and A1C. My blood pressure meds were increased. I was told to lose weight.
Why is it that I know what to do and I am not doing it? I know that I need to eat healthy. I know I need more veggies in my life. I know that I need to make better choices. I know that I can do it, so why am I not doing it? I love my fitbit. I really am motivated to get my 10000 + steps in every day.
Maybe I am making this journey harder than it should be. Maybe I need to focus on only two goals at a time. Not worry about the weight loss right now at this moment. Not focus on blood pressure. I know I need to worry about blood sugars. That is a given. My fitness goal is on a wonderful streak.
New goals: 5 servings of veggies every day and not snacking at night. I think I eat so much at night that it undoes everything I did during the day. Now for the accountability part, I am going to report my progress on my spark streaks..

    I've been having the same problem- knowing I have a problem/knowing what and how to do it, but just not following through. The good news is we know how to do it- and now we just have to believe we can and will do it! Hang in there! Baby steps and we'll get there! emoticon emoticon

    Sounds like you know what to do to improve things. I agree, you may be making it harder than you need to. When my doctor told me in Dec. that I was prediabetic, she only said lose weight. I concentrated on that and made it my #1 goal. I was doing Tai Chi and didn't really get a lot of steps in but my balance etc. was much better and now the weight has come off too. You can do this!!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Focus on less and succeed more. You are making it way too
    hard on yourself. Less can be better so give it a try.

    I have a fasting blood test later this morning. Maybe that will give some insight as to why I don't feel well. Sounds like you got a few things going on with you. I'd pick the one thing you feel you'd have success at and start with it. Blessings

    Good idea to focus on one thing at a time. I'm doing better with eating, but not getting enough exercise. School is taking way too much time! Good luck!

    Good luck on your A1C score results. I have lab work in December.
