Why is it embarrassing?

Saturday, June 04, 2011

Why is it that I get so embarrassed when I come back to SparkPeople? I am embarrassed because I was so positive and moving in the right direction when I last wrote in here - which was five months ago. Nearly half a year. I got derailed again. And then when I think I need to get back on here, get back on track and start over - it is like I don't know what to say here. I feel like - why bother? I keep losing my way. But I can't give up. And that is why I am trying to be proud to be back. I haven't given up completely. I know I need to do better. I am off to motivate myself again. Gotta keep at it.

    I always feel the same way! It's hard to come back and not feel like everyone is just going to think "yeah, yeah, you're really going to do it this time...sure...heard that before!" but the thing is, almost ALL of us have "fallen off the wagon" or had to take a Spark-Break before and none of us are here to judge each other, but to support each other.

    When my fellow team members return I am always SO glad to see them back and hoping that my encouragement will help them to do better this time around....and they always welcome me back with open arms even though I've been on and off here for 2 yrs and regained more than half of what I lost.

    We can NEVER give up! My mother has been trying to lose the same 10-25 pounds for as long as I can remember. She'll lose some, and then gain some back, etc....but just think where she might be if she stopped trying!

    Glad you're back, and hope that you find the support and encouragement you need to stay here this time and create the success you are seeking.

    Are you doing The 17 Day Diet? I absolutely LOVE this diet! Check out the team, like Gabby said. Lots of good info there! And I think you are a wonderful, brave woman to keep on trying. I'm a yo-yo dieter, which means I constantly fall off and have to get back on or give up. We can't give up, though! We can do this!

    It's hard to stay motivated, especially when you're doing it on your own. Welcome back!

    Welcome back and welcome to the 17DD team? I saw your name on the team stream. I hope that you got an automated email from me LOL! I just wrote a blog about people who lose their way. Don't be embarrassed - it happens to the best of us. Check out my blog about lost survivors. I also wrote one called the 17DD is viral that has some good info on what to expect. We have a very active nad supportive team - come and introduce yourself and join some discussions. emoticon
