Hey Chickie!! Sorry I have been out of touch lately...been crazy hectic here!! And even with this sattelite internet, it's STILL s..l..o..o..o..w..w..w..!! UGH!! I get so aggravated that I usually give up! I can either use my time waiting for pages to load or get up and get some exercise, so I have been trying to get moving! NOtice I say "trying" cuz I don't always manage to do it!! LOL
Anyhoo...I hope that you are having a SUPER-FANTABULISTICAL EASY week!!! Talk to ya soon!! 2674 days ago
Thanx for you comments on my page! I WAS doing pretty good...then I fell off the wagon and let it DRAG ME for a while!! LOL! But...it's a new year and I am more determined than ever to get back on track!! And I had to chuckle at your saying you are a "girl in an old lady's body"! That's me! I will still feel like a girl when I am 60!! And I HATE that my body is acting and feeling so old!! UGH!
I read too how you have never shared your struggles with anyone. I was always like that too. I figured that if I tried, but didn't let anyone know, then noone would know when I failed. One thing I have discovered is that it is far better to share this journey. I did so much better when I let everyone I know what I was trying to do and when I stayed involved here at Spark. It so helps to have that constant support and to know that you aren't the only person struggling through these issues. And accountablilty means a LOT. I did well until I got "too busy" to Spark. The less I got on here and got involved, the WORSE I did until I was LOST again. I have to let my weight loss adventure be an OBSESSION. It has to dominate my free time.
As for patience...I HAVE NONE!!! I am def a "I want it & I want it now!" kinda girl. You would think that having 3 boys and being a teacher would totally develop patience in me...WRONG!!! I am SOOOO impatient! That is one of my goals for this year..to work on my patience level! lol
As for TV...I still haven't cut that back much. I try. And try. But, Lordy, sometimes it seems to be ALL that saves my sanity! Nothing like that PEACEFUL nightly reprieve from the chaos and madness that is my world! lol
I wish you all the luck in the world!! You CAN do it!! You already have the RIGHT frame of mind...it DOES just take consistency and support! And if you can be consistent, you will find all the moral support you could possibly hope for right here on Spark! I'm here for you as are (literally) thousands of others who share this wonderful, albeit sometimes very difficult, journey. GOOD LUCK!! 2697 days ago
