Self Sabotage

Monday, July 23, 2007

I really don't know what its going to take for me to stick to my program. I start out fine, then, get distracted and sabotage myself. I went to visit family last week and ate all the wrong things for four days. No exercise with the exception of walking around a few stores. I wish I had the self discipline to maintain healthy eating with exercise. I tend to make excuses such as "I'm a single parent who has to do it all" or "I work two jobs". However, I'm not the only one who has such responsibilities. Therefore, I should and must do better if I ever plan on achieving my goals. I suppose I should restart with some small attainable goals. Anyone willing to buddy up with me to make me more accountable?

    Hey There! I totally understand. I got to a point where I almost gave up (in my latest blog). I recently joined weight watchers. I witnessed a few friends of mine lose more than 20 lbs with this diet. I figured if they can do it, so can I. So far, I've lost about 3 lbs. Weight watchers will definitely hold you accountable. There are some people at my job that are on weight watchers as well, which helps out a lot. My mom and I joined together. If you ever decide to join, I can help hold you accountable to staying within your points (calories, fat, and fiber). It's not a tough program to follow. It's possible to lose the weight without exercising, but I exercise sometimes just to stay healthy ; ) Be blessed with your weightloss journey. And don't give up just b/c of a couple of mistakes and bad eating days. Just look forward to the next day to do better = )
