I´m still here!

Thursday, April 08, 2010

Today that fact has to be a focus of mine - I overate yesterday evening after having a great day so today I feel hopeless again... until I search my friends for the sparkers I envied at the beginning because they were losing so much and doing so well.

And - many of them seems to have quitted... maybe not on their health journey but they don´t spark anymore.

So I will try to see my consistancy here as the tool that will bring me to my goals in the end. As long as I ´m sparking there is hope that things will work. I am really tired of losing this battle over and over and I have to find some strateghy that WORKS!

For today I will be happy if I don´t gain any weight this week...

I am searching the net to find something about "fat allergy" - it is common that complusive overeaters say that they can´t eat sugar or white flour. I am beginning to suspect that it is fat that brings me down, eating pork fat really gets me going and maybe it´s the same with butter... but fat is a part of the essential nutrition so I will have to find a way to get it without being triggered - maybe it dould be done through olive or granola oil - I know that a sppon of dressing with oil won´t make me want more (the opposite, just thinking about eating a spoon of oil makes me feel sick)

Thanks for reading

    One of my favorite things about spark - there is always someone home. It is nice whn it is your firends but there are new friends around the corner if you lost the old ones. WHere else can you have friends standing in line waiting to listena dn offer advice??

    Keep going and never give up!

    I feel the same way. I can't imagine my day without sparks.....so I'm not going to think about it. Glad you're still here and doing ok. We chug along till the end, and month for month we make a difference to ourselves and to others.

    Well now that was yesterday today is a new day. I have been slack and gained a few pounds back. I did it now back to the plan. This happens, we must move on. Keep moving, keep tracking.

    Been here a year and a half; lost the weight; gained strength and brains and will still be sparking when Im in a wheelchair! Oh, wait, Im already in a wheelchair! Sorry lol. I even asked Chris Downie if I could stay Forever! I love this site. So many things to learn! (btw, he said yes!) HUGS Laurie

    Glad you're still here. It's funny we both wrote about consistency. Hang in there - you're doing great.

    I am glad you are still here , friend!
    It sounds as if you have found a core point to fight : fat addiction...
    Every one has its own, mine is CARBS and SWEETS and from the moment i started try put protein in almost every meal or snack i feel that balance is tangible.
    It was a revelation and a quite useful tool Dr Lindberg's books upon nutrition and balanced GI.
    Google it and take a look
    Good luck!

    I'm still here too. When I consider leaving it's mostly about time and balance. It's hard to fit everything into one day. I stay because of people like you, who motivate me and are motivated by me. I am struggling with the last 10 lbs of my weight loss journey and some days I think about giving up, but I realize without accountibiliy I'll end up needing to lose more than 10 lbs...Together we can do this!

    I wanted to let you know that your blog has inspired me, I know there will come a time when I feel like giving up (this is my 4th week on SP) and it will be comments like yours that will keep me going. I can tell that you don't give in, you're a fighter and always looking for solutions rather than giving up.

    I'm the same, I really struggle to lose weight, and although I only have about 21lbs to lose it doesn't shift but I know I WILL find an answer. So good luck, and I'm on your bus!

    I am still here too. Not losing weight but wanting to get back. I've noticed that lately quite a few people that were here and doing great are now having trouble staying on track and are leaving. I am going to stay and I hope you decide the same. emoticon emoticon
