You are amazing
YOU are amazing.
You're joined Spark People and you and doing your best to stay healthy.
If it's hard, or if it doesn't seem to be working, remember, YOU are taking steps to improve your health and that makes you amazing.
NEVER feel bad, never feel like you aren't good enough, because you ARE.
Everyone has setbacks. That's a normal part of life, but you are amazing for trying to take control of your health.
It makes you so beautiful.
Don't Put It Off!
If possible, eat when you are hungry, don't put it off! Don't wait for the next proscribed "meal time" or think that not eating when you're hungry will help with weight loss! When you DO finally eat, you'll be even HUNGRIER and end up eating more than you would have otherwise.
When beginning an exercise program, make sure to start out small.
I used to set up big, ambitious goals for myself and quickly fail because it seemed to be TOO MUCH WORK!
This time, I've been able to stick to it for a long time because I started small, making sure to just do 10 minutes of strength training a day. Once that was easy and a normal part of my routine, I GRADUALLY stepped it up so as not to lose motivation.
