Long term goals

Sunday, May 26, 2019

Since this is the third time in over a decade i have started on SP perhaps i should read a bit more into that. Although it can be a tad time consuming, is my health not worth that? As i have watched my cholesterol and sugars slowly rise over the last decade, should i not view a little time tracking food as time well spent? Reflecting back, my issue has never been exercising enough. There have been times i could do more, but mostly i have been a regular runner, hiker, walker for 14years (I started when my daughter was 6 weeks, so it is easy to remember!) When i pay attention to what i eat, i am fairly diligent, and reasonable. Where has it gone wrong? when did i think having a bagel everyday after work or a handful of cookies was OK? Clearly the most difficult part for me is maintaining good habits after the thrill of watching the scale move to where i want it to. (Not that losing the pounds is easy, i just feel so motivated when i am putting my energies into action and accomplishing something.) However self, if you plan to stay healthy you need to work at it, and clearly you need to with high cholesterol and sugars. Don't miss a couple of days and then fall away from the tracking... you deserve better than that. You fancy yourself to be healthy. Just do it and maintain it! Love you, from Me emoticon

    Love your self talk. It is so easy to be hard on ourselves when we need to be thinking positive and giving yourself the best motivation ever. Don't wait for someone else to talk to you. You can be gentle yet firm with yourself.

    Welcome back to SP. You will love it again.
