what if

Friday, September 12, 2008

what if i stuck to my meal and excersize plans.? what if i didnt go back to bed after my son went to school?what if i went to bed at night instead of watching movies and pigging out on junk food?what if i kept drinking water instead of going back to coffee?what if i kept writing in my journal and kept track of what i was eating even if i didnt have a computer available?these are questions that i have been running over and over again every day for the past month.i can answer every one of these questions ,i would be down to 225 lbs by now, i would have more energy, not feel so bloated all the time . so whats stopping me? only one answer. ME. i let myself go again putting things off and the only person i can blame is myself.i know it sounds like i am putting myself down and i am but not in a bad way, in a motivational way.i may have gained all i lost back but i have learned a lot of life lessons along the way. i know what i have to do . i need to stop with the what ifs and work on accomplishing my goals.

    What if you didn't have a ton of people on Spark that care about you? Actually you do... so that's something that you don't have to worry about. WE're here to help you get back on track... but you are the only one who can make that body move. You can do it!!!

    Yes, what if, indeed. One of the first things I wrote on my sparkpage was "I spend too much time wishing and not enough time doing."

    I'm in the same boat...I know what I need to do, I just don't do it consistently.

    But like you said, all we can do is learn from the past and try harder to "do" instead of to "what if".

    Good luck!!!!

    well it looks like you are headed in the right know what you need to do I was told once that admitting the problem is the hardest part.

    It so weird how similar our stories seem to be.... I too have been doing the same thing. "What Ifing". There is one good thing, we both accept that it is "our" choices and not trying to put blame on something else. That is a huge thing.... knowing the cause of the problem is the biggest step to fixing it. As long as you keep getting back to the correct actions that helps. I too am working on being more consistant for longer. You can do it! The thoughts are there now we just need to match them with the action. Let's do it!

    ... and you would be totally awesome looking as well as feeling!

    But you are human, so just keep trying. If you give this the best you can give we will love you all the more for it.

    I go to bed early to stop my munchies and I wake about 5am and go online, to Spark, where else? Then at 6:15 I get ready for my walk.

    So, in answer to your what ifs, I can tell you you will make this happen.

    I'm here for you,
