17,037 Spark Points

Monday, June 15, 2009


Should I be embarrassed about 17,037 spark points? I am reading articles, blogs, some of the best fitness advice I have ever found, logging food (sometimes), logging exercise (when I actually do any) and have made some FABULOUSLY supportive friends....and what do I have to show for it?

17,037 spark points.


Why is that? Well, please let me enlighten you. I am LAZY! I want all the rewards but don't want to work for it! How selfish can I be? I read about how people lose 100 pounds or more than that and I think, "I can do that!" But do I? Not yet I haven't.

I didn't want to weigh this much when we get married. But with 68 days until we say I DO! It ain't gonna happen. Am I destined to be FAT my entire life? Probably. Because I can't seem to find the motivation to lose any weight! Well actually the motivation is lingering -- I just can't find the time to MOVE! I think about everything that goes into my mouth ... good and bad. So I am working the Spark -- just not exercising! So very frustrating!

I hope to wake up someday and get a swift kick in the ass of motivation....

It's possible right?

(rant over) and I actually feel better!

    I know just what you mean about the points! I have over 10,000 pts very little weightloss to show as well. I am glad to know that I am not alone.

    I also believe that one day we will wake up and find that right combination of feeling and being and moving that will get that "lifestyle" change in gear! Then all the knowledge we have gained here at SparkPeople will really come in handy!

    Congratulations on your upcoming wedding!

    Attitude is almost everything. If you believe you will always be fat or can not find the time to get some exercise in then that is how it will be. But if you believe that you can get in 20min everyday of some type of activity then it will happen. You may not want to be where you want to be for your wedding, but you can be where you want to be for the rest of your life and that is healthy.

    Enjoy your day and make it healthy!

    I think the idea of "motivation" is given too much power. We all have competing demands on our time, and it just takes a while to figure out how to meet all of the demands and take care of yourself too. Just keep truckin' and I know you'll get there.

    Congrats on the upcoming nuptials too!
