2012 This can be the year of success

My birthday was in December, so I gave myself a WW membership. Wasn't doing it on my own. It did keep me in line over the holiday weeks. Now, time to really buckle down and succeed. Why? Because...

I definitely want to be healthier so I can get off cholesterol & BP meds.

I want to look as slim as I was when I was 30--no one ever thought I was too skinny, but I was about 65 pounds thinner. Yikes!

I want to feel in shape and strong, so I can move ...

I want to feel in shape and strong, so I can move more easily, reduce arthritis, and And show off the muscles I know are under the flab.

I want to go shopping and buy pretty dresses.

I need to re-read this frequently, so there will be no backslides. So far, 1/2 down...more to go.

Thanks for being so supportive during the year. When you tell me I helped you, what you fail to see is how much you help me as well. You are great SparkFriend and I am happy to be with you on this journey!
Happy New Year

Your Excuse: I Can't Picture Myself Ever Being In Shape!
The Excuse Buster: Getting healthy and losing weight is most often seen as an external process: eat better quality food, move your body, lose fat, transition to smaller size clothing . . . and so on. But focusing on the outer process alone often leaves you with a sense of disconnection with your mental self-image.

Have you ever walked past a mirror and caught a glimpse of yourself out of the corner of your eye - and did a double take because you couldn't believe that was you? Have you ever looked at photographs of yourself and gasped because you didn't realize you looked like that? These mental jolts take place when there is a gap between your physical appearance and your mental perception of your physical appearance.

Weight loss is not just a physical process. You also need to "shed" the limited self-image that you have become accustomed to seeing in your mind. One of the easiest ways to do this is by visualizing daily the person you are becoming. The act of visualizing is not to make the pounds drop off, but rather to get your mind more familiar with the new person into which you are transforming. The more comfortable you can get with your beautiful new self-image, the more easily you will transition to your new physical state of being.

Tonight, spend some time creating a mental image of the person you wish to be. See yourself as slim, fit, healthy, and strong as you want to be, and put as much detail as you can into the vision. Love and appreciate this new and improved version of yourself, and then make an effort to BE this person in all of your daily activities. Think, speak and act like this person would think, speak and act. Move the way this person would move. The more completely you can do this, the more easily you will find yourself transforming into a better you - mentally, physically and spiritually.

OUCH! Your injury sounds awful... I'll definitely be mindful of my limits and careful to not get hurt. I can see how easy that can happen.

Best of luck to you in the challenge!!
