Why is it that I do good at work, all day with my meals, then get home and sabotage any success that I accomplished? Why is it that I don't give a damn when I'm eating something that I hadn't planned and the minute I swallow the last bite... I'm miserable? Why can't I consistently eat healthy on most days? Why do I say that I want to lose weight when it seems I'm only interested in the thought of it, not the physical? Why can't I get it together? Why? I have been 'overweight' since I can remember. I don't know the exact moment I became obsessed with my weight or food, but I'll definitely remember the exact moment when I become un-obsessed!

Member Since: 4/13/2008

Fitness Minutes: 13,525

My Goals:
292- commit to eating healthier and exercising 2 days wkly with no excuses

155-Goal weight: commit to staying within 5lbs of my goal weight by eating healthy and exercising 5-6 days wkly with no excuses

My Program:
Eat three meals and two snacks daily and stay within my set calorie limit.
Exercise 3 times weekly and strength train twice weekly

Personal Information:
I am a mother of three teenagers, a young adult, as well as a foster parent and a grandparent. I'm currently in school for my RN degree and I plan to move south within the next five years.

Other Information:
I think the reason why I have trouble with sustaining motivation is because I'm always looking for instant gratification. I give up too easily. I know that losing weight and living a healthy life style takes time and effort , something that I honestly haven't been giving, and I know that it won't be easy because I will be leaving my comfort zone. That's a scary thing. I will have to keep my eye on my long term goal and make some sacrifices. I have to not get angry with myself if I have something that I didn't plan for and not let it ruin my entire day. I also have to stop giving up so easily because I know in the long run all of the sweat and tears will be worth it.

    Hey McNkab! Thank you for adding me as a friend. I have done likewise! The sweat and tears are definately worth it. Fortunately I am retired so I can go exercise anytime. I am also fortunate that I live with my sister and her DH. I have a built in buddy. It has made my journey so much better! Good luck on your healthy lifestyle changes. It is soooo worth it! emoticon
