Consistently Inconsistent

Friday, April 05, 2019

I created this account and promptly forgot about it. I came here for support. I need it. I have some support at home, but I prefer it come from people who are actively working towards helping themselves. That energy rubs off on me and helps me get my buttinski in gear. Maybe I should make SparkPeople my homepage.

The first few months of this year were horrendous. I lost my dad. I lost my dog. I lost my job. I'm so easily overwhelmed and discouraged that I immediately fall back into bad habits. I don't want to ruminate on that, though. It's not good for those with depression and anxiety. So, for the rest of this year, I want to work on creating new habits that will get me to my goals and support my physical and mental health.

Primary Goals:

Better coping skills
Incorporating stress-relieving activities
Building better habits

Inconsistency is killing me. I know i'm better than this. I can do this.

    It all begins someplace and you just started there. Sp is the way to do it.

    We want to remember it took us a few years to put our weight on and it comes off a little at a time, just like it went on. People get frustrated with it not coming off faster than we put it on. But with consistent focus on doing what we are told on SP we will hit our objective. Like many things it just wont get there overnight.

    Make sure you make one of your most focused goals you water intake. Myself, when I hit plateaus its because I am not doing the water correct. I found using a reminder on my phone to be very helpful in making sure I keep on track with the water

    Welcome to SparkPeople. We are all here for the same reason, no matter what our personal story is. We are here to help each other to get to that healthy point we want to be in our lives. It is not going to be easy, but it is attainable. Make small goals and they will lead to big successes. You have to make you #1 and tell yourself that you are worth it. And remember you didn't gain the weight overnight and you won't lose it overnight. It takes time, determination, motivation and support. You can get it all right here! If you don't take care of yourself you can't take care of anyone else. If I can help in anyway, feel free to reach out to me! You can do it! We are here to help!
