So...NO MORE EXCUSES! I've done this before I can do it again.

Thursday, February 28, 2013

I read the title of this blog on another blog and it just was so familiar. This has been a 3rd time journey to lose 30 pounds over the past 15 years. Yes I have done the losing again but I wish I could do the keep off better. I have done Weight Watchers twice and decided to do SparkPeople this time. I will get the weight off but keeping it off is the hard part. Maybe SparkPeople will help. I know some of the reasons the weight comes back but the main one is that I get stressed, feel sorry for myself and then indulge in the high calorie fat filled foods that I crave. Right now the changes going on in my life are making me feel depressed. The non-profit is moving along and although there is a place for me, the work is not making me happy. So I will probably not return after my current commitment. Then what to do is the next question? Part of this is to get out and talk with people to find another group to join. But this time I am spending more time to look at what makes me happy and what that looks like. But finding that has a lot to do with looking inward and really figuring out more about myself. I should be happier, my family cares about me, I don’t really have financial issues, my health is good and I have friends. Maybe I just need to look at the positive and focus on that part of my life.

I just know that although the “I can do it again” looks at losing weight, it also applies to gaining it. So no more excuses, this time I will face the internal reasons. And eat appropriately everyday.

    Stress is my down fall as well.

    Good luck with your plan. It sounds like you are very committed to it and in a good place as far as that goes right now.

    I am sorry your are feeling depressed about work and stuff. You are right to look to fill your life with things that make you feel happy. I get depressed when I am overwhelmed with stuff that needs doing - and feel better when I make progress on them. I am finding jogging is really helping my mood considerably - gives me a sense of achievement and well-being I suppose. I have lost 20lbs and put 10lbs back on in the last 18 months or so - it's like our sub-conscious pulls us back to a comfortable place again - where we are not glorious or radiantly happy, but 'safe'!?
    You can work it out!
