My 50th, April 2008
Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
Life has many twists and turns. I am starting to learn that all experiences are beneficial, though not all are pleasant or happy. Is there something after all, to the Chinese philosophy of everything in balance? I am not convinced yet.
Perhaps rather, that God makes all things work for the good, for those in Christ Jesus. Perhaps the Chinese are not quite with the God-theory yet...
I have started my second run of SparkPeople on the 7th of May, 2009. The first run ran into the ground in 2007. End of 2007. This time I am in it for the long haul.
I very strongly dislike failing, especially at something as easy as making SP work. But I know that bumps and wobbles will be part of it. So I have to calm my mind, re-group my thinking all the time, and get back on track when I get off...because I AM IN THIS FOR THE LONG HAUL.
This is probably one of the most important projects I have ever tackled. In 51 years (ok, make that 51 minus 15) I have not yet succeeded to keep any amount of weight off for longer than 5 years!
I know that if I can beat myself at this, I would have grown in leaps and bounds, I would be a better, stronger and happier me!!
I have to learn much, so this project will consume quite a bit of energy...
