What's the problem here??

Saturday, September 12, 2015

I talk about weight loss all the time. I've joined WW 4 times, lost half the weight but not yet met a goal. I've bought DVDs and weights....and not got past the 3rd week. I've started walking again and by the 2nd month I'm letting other things interfere. I've gotten active on Spark People 3-4 times since I joined in 2009

I've raised kids by myself, bought a house by myself, bought a new car and paid it of by myself. I quit smoking for good, cold turkey, 15 years ago. I've gone from data entry to manager by my own dedication and hard work.

I've proven my work ethic, my financial responsibility, my parental responsibility. But I cannot seem to prove to myself that I can stick to a personal goal. I have not made my goal unreachable. It's a reasonable 50 lbs. People lose a hundred pounds and more.

What's my problem? What should I be addressing here? Do I need counseling?

    I have accomplished amazing things too but struggle with losing weight and keeping it off too. I think a lot has to so with the fact that we have to eat and it is so much a part of our culture. It's hard to learn just to fill the tank. I'm a foodie, I want an experience.

    I've been there too. Try writing down why the weight loss is important. I feel more set this time because I've realized how much I want this for me, not for someone else or to look good for an event.

    (Part3) have an accountability partner? If not, try finding one. If you would like to friend me and or use me as an accountability friend, that would be fine also. Try looking at getting healthy as a job. I hope you figure out what works for you too.

    (Part 2) through our difficult times. I know without this support I would have already given up. I have also made myself exercise. When I have the time but don't want to exercise, I make myself get on the exercise bike for at least 20 min. Do you

    I have had similar issues. What has helped me stick to it this time around is I have a SP friend that we email each other at least 5 days a week. We talk about our goals, fitness and nutrition for the day, we have weekly weigh ins and help each other
