Having a hard time

Monday, December 27, 2010

Yup. I'm back up to 230 and I was down to 220 at one point. I'm having a very hard time getting back into tracking everything I eat. I have been still working out once or twice a week.. I know it isn't enough..
Christmas, Birthday and New Years are rough for me because I don't see my beautiful Daughters and my mom and my sisters Its a long sucky story.. So what do I do I turn to the only thing that makes me feel good in the moment ..FOOD!! I hate that I do this to myself, I know i feel better when I'm doing good.
So Yesterday I started the day off with tracking .. I was going to try to stick with it for the day..Did I NO I didn't.So I wake up and feel even worse.. So here I am again tracked what I had so far today and hopefully will do it all day..
I guess i figured if I blogged about I get some kind of support from my spark friends.. I'm feeling so down right now with everything else thats going on in my life. I know if I stick with it and do good again I will at least feel good about me..

    Decide on three things that you will start doing. Consider a streak with those three things. Don't worry about the past, it is over and there is nothing you can do about it except move past it and move on. One day at a time, one step at a time. You can do it. Just don't try to start everything again all at once. Take it hour by hour if you must. We are here to listen and to help.

    Hey darlin, I was so close to goal before thanksgiving and instead of getting there, i went in the other direction. Its all good we are all in the same boat. The new year is coming and things are going to be looking up! We have our tools on board. Food tracker, got a goal & plan a reward! We are in business baby!Victoria

    It was the holidays...did you really expect to do 100%? I know I didn't. Besides that's all behind you now. What you did yesterday doesn't matter near as much as what your doing now.

    I am UP 4lbs this past week...so try and not beat yourself up too much...holidays are and can be very tough for people...i tend to eat when i am bored..excited..happy mad and/or sad....i eat all the time in other words..lol...so i have to always control what goes into my mouth...if you haven't done so already..try and eliminate most of your food triggers..remove all the food that 'tempt' you the most from your house..for now....and then stock up on healthy snacks...and then try taking it one day at a time...and don't feel bad if you don't succeed right away...we are here to support you..and i am 'just a page away' if you need some extra encouragement!! emoticon

    The holidays are a rough time for a lot of people, especially when circumstances don't let us be with the people we want to be with. I am so sorry you are going through this rough time. You have to remember ... the past is just that .. past. You can't waste the precious gift of this moment beating yourself up about what you did yesterday .. or even 5 minutes ago. There is no way to change the past. All we can do is change the present. Don't even look at what you have to do tomorrow ... just concentrate on this moment, ask for the strength to do what you need to do right now, forgive yourself, and forget the past. Before you know it all these right now, moment to moment victories will become both the past and the future. emoticon

    I know exactly how you feel. So, yesterday I reset Spark. I'm starting over - I'm even going to reread The Spark book. So far, yesterday was a success, except for water. Today I'm going to work on that.

    We can do it. Hang in there.
