Is It Real?

Tuesday, October 15, 2019

Like many, I have struggled with my weight for years. It always seemed to be a one step forward, two steps back kind of thing. So I would lose a few pounds only to gain them back. Get excited, then disappointed. It never lasted. Why try.

Part of my problem is that I have no one to exercise with, no accountability buddy. I don't need to exercise with someone all the time, but it would be nice to have someone along once in awhile. Someone who understood or even pretended to understand. Someone to do different things with and maybe learn from or try something new with. But either people are too busy with their own life or not interested in getting healthy or think they are healthy and don't want to bother with someone who is still on the journey to become healthy. So I struggle and work through it alone, except for my Sparkbuddies. They are always there for support, but I would still like someone in person.

Another issue I have to try to deal with is having my sister live with me. She has never cared about living healthy and now it has caught up with her. But unfortunately, we cannot afford multiple meals where we all eat different things for dinner. So I work on portion control. My sister does not care if anyone else is trying to be healthy, she just wants what she wants. Period.

When I re-started again three weeks ago, I was at my heaviest ever. My first weigh in I was down 2 lbs. Very happy, very excited. But when I step on the scale again, will it be back or is it Real this time? Sunday was weigh-in time again. Down another 2.2 lbs. totaling 4.2. Perhaps I finally got it in my head, how to make this work for good. I will work at it and maybe, just maybe I will be able to truly believe that it is Real this time.

Have a Wonderful and Blessed Day!!!

    Hello Dar, I also don‘t have an accountability buddy and know how difficult it is to stay persistent when the person we live with is eating tempting foods and we try to eat healthier.. hard it is. Hang in there! 💪🏻 Ivana

    I like to exercise on my own. Keeps me more focused. I find talking distracting. Each to her own. Good luck. Hope you find the right formula for you

    I have buddies and others but I do better on my own. Even my DH eats differently than me, I do not mind b/c I know what my body needs and I give it the fuel. I say I am in control of me. they are in control of them.
