Yesterday was not a great day but I'm hoping good came out of it. I dropped out of 2 teams because I know know in my state of mind I had become an anchor to both teams. I took some quiet time last night after everyone was asleep to take time out for myself to sit and think about my life and what I did or didnt want. I decided not to ever "start over" but to take the way I think and reboot myself. Actually going back to basics. Log food exercise. Etc as I was. But. This time do it for myself and not the pressure of trying to keep up with others on a team.
Ive been on sp for 2 yrs and never took anything seriously enough to start and actually carry thru on. Ive started over and over so many times I cany count. This i feel is different. Some will understand thatd been others will just another start over
It's okay. I'm no longer letting what others think or say effect how i feel. I've always been a people pleaser. I wont rock the boat. I need to start controlling my own life . I feel I finally had my "Ahh Ha" moment. It's time to move on. With the tools here on SP that I've had access to all along. I know that it will all be better.

    A team is there for support. We need to make the decision to find what works on each of our own journeys. Keep moving forward. emoticon

    emoticon I'm happy to read you have come to the conclusion to take matter in hand. You are so right when you say it is your life, and you should be able to control it. That also applies to your diet. It is time to do for you and nobody else. When this really hits home, will be the time you make the shift of living for yourself and your betterment of your health.

    You don't really realize how diet truly affects our health. It is the determination of what you want more, feeling like you do, or feeling better. You'll get there, just take it one day at a time. Heck most the time I have to take it hour by hour and minute by minute. I can so easily not care, but I know what I want I'm going after it.

    It is so great that you have come to your own conclusions of what to do that is best for you. It is so important to focus on that and not what others think or say. Go at your own pace and don't look back. It doesn't matter what happened in the past. Today is the first day of the rest of your life and you are taking control. Good for you!!! Remember, to be patient with yourself and that it takes time to change old habits in this journey. I wish you the best and know you can do it!
