Trying to get the Spark again . . .
Tuesday, January 25, 2011
Remember that old Barry Manilow song, "Trying to Get the Feeling" ? Maybe I am the only Barry Manilow fan - regardless - that is sorta how I feel about Sparkpeople these days. I lurk around, reading everyone's updates and get happy for them, but sorta bummed for me. Most of the weight I lost has slowly creeped back. I did real well unit after Christmas, and now apparently it is open grazing season at my house.
I want to lose and get healthy, I just can't seem to get up and over the hump and do anything about it. I get on the scale and just sigh . . .yes, I know the scale shouldn't be the only measure of success. My biggest issue is this - I LIKE to eat, I LIKE carbs and all things bad for me. I SUBSTITUTE FOOD for pleasure in my life.
But hey, I realize that if it was EASY we would all have the body and health we desire, right? Any tips, tricks, suggestions for getting that Spark feeling again?
