excuses are not welcome here

i am tired.

that's not an excuse, either.

i am tired of there being a reason for everything. i am tired of blaming my body for what i know in my heart is the root of the problem. i am tired of coming up with excuses as to why i can't do this myself.

it's simple, carrie.

get off your butt and put down the chocolate.

so what if you are tired, so what if you are down. the healthier you are the better you will feel. you know it's ...

so what if you are tired, so what if you are down. the healthier you are the better you will feel. you know it's true. Just because you have forces working against you, doesn't mean you can't do it. plenty of other people have overcome worse than you.

so that's that.

it's time for me to quit blaming myself and hold myself accountable. it's two totally different things.

i am not overweight because
*i had thyroid cancer
*i am sad
*i don't know how to eat
*i always get sick or injure myself when i exercise
*i was a member of the clean plate club
*i had a beer last night
*i night eat because of stress
*i have liver disease
*i am so tired of doing it all myself - i just don't have time.

i am overweight because
*i don't exercise enough
*i don't make wise food choices

i will remedy that situation.

I love your comment "Excuses Not Welcome Here", but as I read you home Spark Page, I had this vibe that you were being a bit harsh on yourself. Yes, you do feel tired. Yes, that is no excuse, but give yourself a break. It is harder now. MUCH harder. You have done a wonderful job loosing 7 pounds. There is more to come (or should I say go?)

Hang in there. My mantra for the week is One Step At A Time. Each step toward my goal!

Thank you for commenting on my blog. Sometimes it is easier to deal with things if we get them out in the open and get fresh eyes on them.
I like your attitude...I too have to stop making excuses and remind myself that I am the one making the decisions that led to my weight problem. I am also the one that can make the decisions to get it off.
Thanks for the "I" opener!! We don't have to do it alone, but in the collective entity that forms Spark, we have multiple resources to help us open our "I's" and do what we need to do. Reaching out is the first step...thank you for taking my hand and helping me up!
Keep up the exercise and keep out of the chocolate!

Laurie
