feeling blue

Thursday, May 30, 2019

I have done my best to stay motivated. Unfortunately I do not regularly exercise. I want to but guess I just put it off and not make it a priority. I should not feel discouraged. I have lost 67 pounds, but gained 2 , lost 4, gained 2 …. you got the picture. Its just I don't see me moving forward. I don't know if my body has gotten comfortable at my weight, or I need to cut calories below 1200. I do know I need to exercise. The question is how bad do I want it. And yesterday I ordered pizza when I knew it was going to put me over my calorie count. but I did it anyway. Today I guess it just got me down that I didn't make a good choice. Tomorrow will be better.

    thanks for your responses ! its a good thing to have supporters. I know one thing that has me down *a little... I retired 3 years ago, then 4 months later took a part time hourly job, no more than 24 hours a week if needed but lately I have dropped from working around 8 days a month to 4.. feeling kinda out of it. I know the hours will increase again, but still. But I am thankful that I can go help my family or be spontaneous day trips. I am so blessed... Wow … Counting my blessings now. You all have a wonderful day !

    Can you find something you like to do?
    For me, I walk a friend's dog for him every morning. Even when I don't really feel like doing anything, I know that sweet girl is waiting for me, and she's always so happy to see me.
    At home I find that if I put on some music, I tend to move around more, instead of sitting and watching TV or messing around on the computer.

    We've all eaten something that we know will put us over on cals for the day - just learn from it, and move on. It's in the past, and you cannot change the past.

    Most important, NEVER giver up on YOU!

    I am facing the same problems. I know I don't make good choices, but I get up the next day and try again. We are our hardest critics. Just keep trying. We are here for you. I have been on Sparkpeople for a few years now.

    Try doing something for just 10 minutes a day. Baby steps. Don’t beat yourself up because your food totals weren’t perfect. One step at a time.

    I kept trying to exercise for a long time and I'm still not where I'd like to be. I tried classes and tried walking but until I started going to the gym pool, nothing lasted for long. I go 3-4 times a week and recently did some walking again which I found more likable than previously. Keep trying different options and once you find something you like then you'll be able to keep it up.

    67 # is great job. I am getting close to 50 but it is a struggle at times.

    Walking is a great exercise. Also, during commercials you can get up and walk in place.

    I've been adding one small exercise. I just go out and walk a mile in the evening. It's not much but it's more than what I was doing before.
