I don't know that I'm ever really going to lose the weight. I try, then I stop. I get motivated, then I stop. I want to, I really do, but can't keep myself motivated.
I'm not consistently on Spark People, to say the least. Oh, I have at least a dozen excuses of why I can't seem to make it, but they are just that, excuses. When I am on here, I'm all gung-ho and ready-to-go... rah, rah, rah, and let's go team
Then.... I fizzle. I come out of the starting gate full force, in the lead
, then....kerplunk...I drop...sigh.
My food weakness' are carbs and diet pepsi.....for shame. Probably the worst things you can eat and drink. Most everyone's I imagine are the sweet taste of those darned carbs, or the taste of the wrong carbs. Mine? Bread with butter, popcorn with butter, red licorice. Those tempting, calling my name, carbs. It also doesn't help that I have a husband who is thin and can eat anything and everything and maintain his weight. Whom, I might add, is a sugaraholic
No matter what I eat, my weight is constant within five pounds. I stopped looking at the scale. It's not my enemy, as some would say, but it is discouraging for me. So I don't bother.
I have hypothyroidism. I'm on medication for it. That makes my challenge of losing weight a little more challenging. But it's not an excuse for me. Everything else is ;-)
I live on the Mountain in Oregon. There are plenty of things to do on the mountain. My main activity is hiking and just walking the trails with my sweet little dog.
I'm active, maybe not as active as I should be, but I'm not lazy. I walk my dog half an hour every morning. He loves it; It makes him happy :-) I hike, not every weekend but every couple of weekends.
I have a sit down job. I bought a computer stand that forces me to stand. But, somehow, I still manage to sit down lol.
I'm on a rah, rah, rah, moment. I'm hoping it only dampers to rah, rah, and not kerplunk.
