Just takes a "Spark"

Inspiration and determination is that "Spark" that will my journey. As a mother of a 7 year old girl, I want to be here for her and model better relationships with food and exercise.

I can not believe that I have gotten to this point. But am grateful that I have woken up to reality, before the situation got any worse as it no doubt would.

I can not believe that I have gotten to this point. But am grateful that I have woken up to reality, before the situation got any worse as it no doubt would.

I have committed to myself. I will not ask for another lap belt extension (nor will I allow embarrasement to stop me from taking my princess to WDW). I am committed to concentrating on the positive (hard for me as I am really good at self flogging) so I will chart my course, record my course in the captain's log but, not concentrate on the far I have to travel.

You wondered my exercise - mostly swimming h2o exercises & one foot in front of the other - nothing strenuous obsessive just fitting it in.

Found this poem while searching for some motivation, hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

Anything is Possible
By Unknown

If there was ever a time to dare, to make a difference, to embark on something worth doing, IT IS NOW.
Not for any grand cause, necessarily...
but for something that tugs at your heart, something that's your inspiration, something that's your dream.
You owe it to yourself to make your days here count.
HAVE FUN.
DIG DEEP.
STRETCH.
DREAM BIG.

Know, though, that things worth doing seldom come easy.
There will be good days.
And there will be bad days.
There will be times when you want to turn around, pack it up, and call it quits.
Those times tell you that you are pushing yourself, that you are not afraid to learn by trying.

PERSIST.
Because with an idea, determination, and the right tools, you can do great things.
Let your instincts, your intellect, and your heart, guide you.

TRUST.
Believe in the incredible power of the human mind.
Of doing something that makes a difference.
Of working hard.
Of laughing and hoping.
Of lazy afternoons.
Of lasting friends.
Of all the things that will cross your path this year.
The start of something new brings the hope of something great, ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE.

emoticon IDEAS FOR DEALING WITH THE OFFICE FOOD POLITICS emoticon :

To take the edge off and not over indulge, eat something before the "fat table" spread is laid out.

Try to visualize the "fat table" ( non-program foods) as a lumpy, cellulite like substance (if you look at any dips after someone else has had a portion you can really see it that way easily).

Try for 2 nibbles of anything that know you love (one to taste it and one because you like it) then you are done.

Go for a short walk after your plate is done (i.e. get away from the "fat table"). That way you will not be tempted for seconds and you get some extra fitness in too.

Today is day 3. This was a successful target day for food and water.

Yesterday I was under on both which helped to compensate for the overage on the frist day. My average daily have been within guidelines.

I have committed to beginning my excercise plan on week 3. This is WW behavioral modification schedule (something that I did successfully for 10 years but allowed to get away from me in the last 10 years).

NOTE TO SELF: Do not stop journaling (accounting for your results), weighing (monitor your progress), verifying portions (which is where my I started to fail), or committment to self and exercise (overall just a really GOOD practice). emoticon
