Time to Learn and Rally
Friday, January 25, 2019
Wow! It is wonderful reading things that people write and finding so much knowledge in what they have to say. Here are some highlights I read tonight.
Need some more structure to help keep me focused
Doesn't it feel great when you plan something & follow thru with it?
Start out simpler & get some success under my belt.
The reasons to quit are long... and that's why I'm here and sick and wanting to get better... I find it helps to focus on what I can do... just take each day, meal and snack separately... and every morning keep pointing myself forward... I don't know how else to get through this and get better...
I use the SP diabetes food tracker to help me set the amount/ranges for calories overall and for carbs because of the diabetes.
Staying in the challenge has helped me try to do this every day.
You all are going to need to keep pushing me because I'm terrible at following through on things, especially on the weekends. Maybe this is what I need to get me motivated and work myself into exercising again.
I'm glad you joined the challenge too. I need to get more structure and motivation!
Doing this Diabetic challenge is making us so excited. I am so excited. I am finally realizing that the more articles I read and the comments of Spark Friends, the more knowledge I have to help myself. I really feel more in control than I have been in quite awhile.
I am treating this challenge like school. I need this structure to keep me pushing on and showing me what I need to do to succeed. I am tired of this morbidly obese body that I live in. I hate that I cannot do physical things that I wish I could do. I want more for myself. I want to be strong. I am in my 50’s and I feel like I have never been healthy. It is too bad that it has taken me this long to finally do something about it. I have to eat right. I have to exercise. I have to say no to my food addictions. I have to learn. I want this so badly. I want my Spark friends to be proud of me. I want to be able to keep them motivated. We all need this.
We are going to succeed!
