So I am so sick and tired of my lack of commitment and laziness. I have started and restarted on here at least three times in the past three years. I keep making excuses as to why I don’t stay with it but I do also have reasons why it’s SO hard to keep going. First of all I can’t stand keeping track of calories it takes way too much time out of my day to either find the right food item or to put one in manually I seriously can’t stand the food tracker, the fitness tracker is slightly less annoying but it still doesn’t have all the workouts I do…(when I do them). So because I either waste my whole day tracking everything I put in my food hole or forget to track I lose interest because I don’t want to obsess over it which is what will happen. The other thing that makes me lose interest quickly when I’m on my weight loss goal is not having anyone to experience this journey with I’ve tried to get my boyfriend and friends to do it with me but they get discouraged when I become a weight loss dictator which I try not to do but it just happens because I want it so bad and when it all comes crashing down is when I get back in my slump. I have even tried making it fun, I am a part of the group gamer girls unite, so I tried making a roll playing game out of my weight loss which at first sounded awesome and, in theory, still does but like with the food tracker I would obsess with it writing down every little thing and tracking the entire day. So..I think the point of this entry is to ask you, the lovely community of sparkpeople, if you have any tips or tricks for me to get the interest of my boyfriend or friends to do this with me, and also any ideas on how not to obsess when keeping track of things. It would be greatly appreciated so thank you all in advance. I am also too scared to do a Vlog I am just not comfortable in front of the camera I’d like to be able to do it though…maybe if I had a glass of wine aka liquid courage beforehand haha.
