Weight Loss Journey

Saturday, July 07, 2018

Today as I sit here I wonder, will I ever be the size I dream about being? Most days I feel like things aren't going the way I would like them to. I get easily discouraged. I want to stop doing that because when I feel this way then I turn to food to help comfort me. So not healthy. Now that I have joined spark people and seeing the online support from my spark friends and the community, things have started looking up. I don't indulge into temptation as much anymore. This has been a great experience for me.

    Well, it took me to realize I was never going to have my teen physique back. I am a 65 year old man who was almost 65 years old. I had a goal of getting down to 177 which I was when I got married 42 years ago, but my doctor told me that will never happen nor should it. He has set a goal for me of 200 to 225. It is more realistic and more practical. My body changed over the years and so i won't be what it was then. But shoot for a healthy balance between what is practical and what you want. And reward yourself for the successes as they occur! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    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
