time to re-ignite the spark

Monday, October 05, 2009

Wow, how many times have I said this??? I know what to do. I feel great when i do it. I get disgusted with myself when I don't do it, and it goes downhill from there.I did so great my first year with spark,and rarely strayed from my plan, but now I don't seem to have the discipline that I had when I began.BUT...I will not give up this fight!!! I need to find ways to motivate myself to STAY on track. I track my meals every day, drink my water, am active on the site, exercise most days,yet I still stray.I NEED to keep my head in this game and stay focused on my goal. I REALLY need to do this!!!

    Old habits are our security blanket sometimes. Doesn't matter if the blanket is smothering us, it is still comfortable and familiar. Finding a new way of dealing with the stresses we live with daily takes energy and concentration. When something is new it's easy to maintain the focus. When we've been doing it for awhile it becomes harder to keep the focus on what we want long term and focus a little more on the old small pleasures, "just one won't hurt".

    I have gone through what you are. I know what I need to do but actually getting it done is another matter. However, by using the tools and teams available here, I have never lost total focus of what I want. It is taking longer than I ever thought when I started with Spark People to get to my goal. However, I have not gained any of the weight I initially lost back (for long). I may gain a pound or five, but then it comes right back off with a little time.

    Keep working towards your goals, even if only in your mind, every day and it will come. A healthy lifestyle is about balance and finding your own way. I know you can do it!
