Starting over

Tuesday, July 08, 2008

Ok, so here I go again....starting over. Instead of concentrating on becoming a healthier me this summer, I've managed to do the opposite. I've put on 10 lbs more and I feel very unhealthy now. No excuses...just laziness. Just letting the days pass and accepting the fact that I'm not trying. Just the thought of signing onto this site and facing the fact that I've taken "10" steps back has been terrible. But starting today I'm facing my fears and am going to work on "WHY?". I know enough about weight gain to know that it's never just about the love of food. There's always an issue behind a weight gain. I can't understand it with me right now because I am truly happier than I've ever been. But I know that somewhere inside, something is wrong. Something I need to confront head on so I can get on with my life in a healthier manner. I must do this for me...no one else. I have the support, I just need to motivate myself.
So, here we go! Smaller goals...weekly goals instead of this HUGE total weight loss goal. I think that and more exercise, even if it's just walking every day, will help me head in the right direction. Wish me luck!

    I try to look at it this way. The only way I can fail is if I stop getting back up when I fall. Dust yourself off and keep walking forward. You can do it!

    We have all taken steps backwards at some point. You have to just look at it one day at a time. Signing on to this site is my daily dose of motivation to be the best that I can be today! Good Luck on your journey, with SP we can do this together!
