Without Struggle There Is No Progress

I've been a member of Spark since Aug. of 07, although I didn't start using it until Jan. of 08. I lost 33 lbs. and maintained it for over a year. When I turned 50 I looked and felt the best I had in years.
Life got busy and I slowly gained it all back plus some extra. I've been struggling to get back on track for over a year. I do well for a few days and then I fall off the wagon. I can't seem to find and keep my motivation.

Life got busy and I slowly gained it all back plus some extra. I've been struggling to get back on track for over a year. I do well for a few days and then I fall off the wagon. I can't seem to find and keep my motivation.
Over the years of losing and not learning how to maintain I've learned that I have to do exercise I enjoy, eat some of the foods I like, and not try to be perfect.
I'm going to try again to get this weight off. I felt so much better and better about myself when I was thinner. I'm not going to make promises that I will reach certain goals by specific dates. That has worked for me in the past, but not lately. I don't want to break any more promises to myself so I'll take it slow.

Thank you for visitng my blog prayers needed. My brother in laws leg is doing better and he is home from the hosp. My friends dad is still in the hosp, and holding his own. They took the breathing tubes out and had to put a trac in and a feeding tube. There were two days in a row that the CT scan were worse but the last two showed no change so that is a good thing, no better but no worse. They lowered the dose of the sedation for his medicated induced coma. They are able to get him to wake up some enough for him to squeeze their fingers and bend his big toe and that is about it.

Got more bad news on Friday my friend ( been friends since the 3rd grade) she went to her bf's apt on Thursday and found him dead, they should know the reason on Monday.

Tomorrow I finally get my car back after a week and half at the gaarge, so hoping that is a sign that things will start changing to the better for August.

Hope you had a great weekend.

Thanks for the goodie. We were riding our go karts at an OHV park in Fort Dodge. I tried to steer around a tree stump, and the kart tipped and pinned my arm under it. 911 call, 3.5 hours in surgery, 2 plates and screws, 8-10 week healing time. :(

Yep, I'm right in between the calorie range that Sparkpeople recommends so I am clueless about the gain. I'll just keep plugging along and hope for a better weigh in next week. emoticon

110 sounds miserable too. My sister lives in Missouri and it was the same 110 heat index there. 96 was bad enough.
