I could not have said it better myself! Take some time to surf the site, find some teams and message boards that interest you. Start moving every day, and add some more time every day. You can get there, but only if you truly want to!

It sounds like you have already thrown I. The towel before you have even begun your journey. What you need to understand that this is NOT a diet by no means it is the beginning of a life journey to healing yourself, to making yourself a better you, to the beginning of a new way of life and until you embrace those facts you will continue to... Eat the fast food, make excuses for putting those chips on your plate and all those orher things that you use to sabotage your efforts to become who you are meant to be.
No it is not easy, what change is? but if you have the drive and the determination to change than you will use that drive to go forward and fight those little battles. The advice I give all my Spark friends is this

It is a journey that we take one day at a time and that is all you need to Dix don't beat yourself up over a bad choice of food. Recognize it and change it. It is all up to you. Also, you have to take this journey for yourself and no one else because is you that has to want to change not someone else.

Somewhere there is someone that dreams of your smile, and finds in your presence that life is worthwhile, so when you are lonely remember itís true, someone somewhere is thinking of you. --

How come something that sounds sooo simple is actually the hardest thing in the world to do? I have been battling issues with food and weight since I can remember and I just don't understand why it is so hard. I mean I know exactly what I have to do and how to do it but when it actually comes to just putting the right thing in my mouth there seems to be something blocking it. It is so hard to comprehend, I mean I love fruit and I like a lot or vegetables, and I absolutely hate how I feel knowing I'm eating fastfood but for some reason it wins everytime. It is quite possibly the saddest thing in the world.

I have never really explored the full potential of Sparkpeople. Don't get me wrong I thin it is one of the best things out there for people like me, I just haven't embraced it, but I hope that is about to change. Sometimes I feel that I am just way to lazy for all of this and dieting, but is that the truth? I need someone to tell me differently, I mean if it is that I am lazy can that be changed? I feel like such a loser when I can't commit to things and follow through. I get so excited to start a diet and change my life, I make all these plans and get everything organized and then when it actually comes to starting it, i fall apart and give up. It's weird, its reminds me of when I was 12 years old and I started to smoke. Once I showed everyone how to do it I didn't want to do it anymore. I was done with it and haven't smoked since those 2 weeks of teaching everyone. how wrong is that to teach them to begin with.
Ok, so I am really not to sure why I am going on with this, but what I do no is that I need the group support that Sparkpeople offers. I think talking to people who are in the same boat and understand how i feel helps 100%.

I am going to commit myself to this and hope that there are people out there who are willing to help me and who I can help in return. Wish me luck!
I look forward to hopefully once and for all telling my story and changing my life in the process.
