Running Along Side the Wagon

 

Oh about a couple months ago I fell off the wagon of eating and exercise... I am currently running along side of the wagon trying to get back on. And frankly that's the most activity I've had in a long time. The kicker is I know what I need to do. I know what foods are healthy and what activities are good for me but I lack motivation and energy. I know I know if I exercise it will help my energy same thing with my eating. I swear I could write my own diet book. I've been on every plan from Weight Watchers to Slim Fast to Prism to First Place 4 Health. 

I admit I wrestle with this a lot because I'm still the leader of First Place 4 Health but I'm not following the plan as far as eating and exercise. I feel like I'm saying do as I do not as I say. I acknowledged from the beginning that I was in it with them. I struggle and I don't have it all figured out. I know I need to do something. There is a history of heart disease in my family along with other health issues. So I'm working on it. As I said I see the wagon I can almost touch it and I will get back on it.

What do you do to lose weight?

I'm in the same boat as you. I know exactly what I have to do to lose weight. It's not great mystery why I'm not at the weight I want to be. But, having the energy to do it is what gets me. Working has actually helped me out a lot. I work with kids so I'm up on my feet a lot and I don't have time to eat. LOL Not exactly the most healthy approach.

for me I am learning to be happy with my shape and approach food and exercise not as a chore but as something I enjoy more if I do it right. I saw something today that said that dog owners are healthier because dogs keep you more healthy - so maybe you are doing better than you thought :-)
