Back again and recommitted

Friday, July 11, 2014

It has taken me a very long time since the birth of my 3rd child to find the motivation and desire to change my eating habits to be able to lose the weight I have regained with my pregnancies. I'm not sure what finally snapped in me, but I just decided that I don't like the way I look and the person I've become. I'm tired of seeing myself in the mirror and wishing I looked better. My husband asked me once what it would take to motivate me to get healthy again, and I told him a trip to Hawaii wouldn't hurt. He said we could find a way to do that if I reach my goal weight. So, here I am once again logging all my food and starting a new exercise program to try and reach my goal. I'm shooting for 170 by November, and then I'll go for 150 after I reach the first goal. Almost 50 pounds to lose. This time I'm really ready to commit and do what it takes to get back to that elusive 150. I know it can be done because I've done it before...6 years ago with the help of Sparkpeople and great friends. Let's do this!

    Hey Paula. - I am with you. I have been in SP for over 8 yrs and I am back where I started from weight wise. WHY? SP has a lot of tools for us to work with and I am familiar with them, but obviously I haven't stuck with them. I have recommitted and doing what I need to do to see that scale go down. I like seeing the scale go down, that's why I joined SparkPeople. That's why we created a weight loss team. We are so tickled to have you on our team. We can do this. MA

    I'm working at re-losing the weight too. Been struggling the last year and now have 55 pounds to lose. I have never been this heavy and am finally finding the motivation to get moving again.

    Best of luck in your journey.

    If you made a vision collage before, be sure it is displayed someone you will see often. If you haven't made one, then make one now. I keep mine in the kitchen.

    We can do this!
