I don't make any progress - what is wrong with me?
Monday, April 06, 2015
Am I not working hard enough? Am I making too many excuses? Am I too lazy, not motivated enough, inconsistant, or simply destined to fail? No, I don't believe that last phrase is true, but I really am trying to figure out why I am having such a hard time.
Over a year ago one of my friends and I started at the same weight. One year later she lost 21 lbs and I gained 12.
I keep trying and trying and trying, and for whatever reason I have not discovered how to do it right. Of course I am aware that my sweet tooth and my tendency to eat at night have a lot to do with my lack of success. So I guess I DO know what is wrong. I just don't know how to fix this.
I keep setting goals only to realize that they are unrealistic. If I set realisitc goals, I get sidetracked and forget what I set out to do.
At times I get rather discouraged, but eventually I pick myself up by my bootstraps and keep moving again.
Of course I realize my situation is not unique. As a matter of fact I think I have an equal number of Sparkfriends who are like me and those who are successful. I keep looking at those friends who make things happen, and I try to discover the difference between those who do it and those who struggle.
Normally I probably would end my blog with an "I can do it", but today I really am not all that certain.
Thankfully tomorrow is another day.
