Back Again

Tuesday, February 11, 2014

I think I read somewhere that when people quit smoking, they have to try several times before they finally succeed. I think it's the same way with losing weight. Although it's a lot harder. With smoking you only have to quit one thing. To really lose and keep it off, you have to make so many changes--more exercise, fewer calories and unhealthful foods, more sleep, more water. I've gotten to the point where I really believe that unless you can make all these changes, and make them permanent, you can't really lose the weight and keep it off. That's a lot harder than just quitting one thing, no matter how addictive it is. I say this by way of trying to avoid the embarrassment of acknowledging the fact that I'm back here yet again, for the umpteenth time. Oh, well. At least I'm back. Made a bunch of changes on my goals on my Spark Page. The fact that I joined SP 6 years ago and still haven't lost the weight doesn't say much for me, does it? But I guess the fact that despite that, I still haven't given up says something. (Naive? Crazy? Stupid?) Anyway, I'm back, and I'm trying. Again. Every day is a choice. That's what I have to keep reminding myself. Today, I'm choosing to be healthy.

    I don't think it says naive, crazy, or stupid. I think it means you're persistent, determined and health conscious.
