Fallen off the SP train again and can't seem to get back on!!

Wednesday, May 11, 2011

It's been a LONG time now...and I can't seem to get back that initial feeling of "I can do this" that I had back when I joined SP. Everything was going along fine...and then stress and daily life took over -- husband's stroke along with other stressors...and I've never been able to get back to the place I should be!

I start posting what I eat each day...and stop around lunch time...I discuss walking with my friends ...and then don't do it. (I've used my bad knee as the excuse many times) I've now stocked the house with stuff I shouldn't have because my son is back living at home...honestly, I think I eat more of it than he does.

I know my health is suffering because of my inactivity and overeating...yet I'm not proactive like I should be!

Writing this down might help. When I posted what I ate, recorded my walks, wore a pedometer, and read the SP articles, I was successful! NEED TO DO THAT AGAIN...

    I second Skeeter. In all seriousness, I think that would benefit you greatly. I went to counseling in college for a little while, and that's when I started to take more control of my life and eating habits.

    You can do it, Diane! We believe in you. :-)

    I am going to be controversial and make the suggestion that you speak with a counselor. It doesn't have to be a psychologist or psychiatrist, but it should be someone competent to help you discover what is going on inside you. I AM NOT a certified counselor, but you sound so much like I did several years ago that it called out to me. I got into a place in my life where I didn't believe I deserved to be happy and I started some self-defeating habits. I couldn't talk to my close friends because I didn't want them to think less of me; I didn't want to "burden" them with my problems; and I didn't want to sound like a whiner. But talking to a professional gave me a bit of anonymity and I knew that I would not be judged. It truly helped. I will keep you in my prayers and hope you find some peace so that you can start finding that wonderful you again!
