Maintaining 80 Pound Loss with SP & Relentless Determination!

I'm 80+ lbs below my all time high and I've lost over 50 pounds since Dec. 2008. In 2009 I achieved a healthy BMI 25. Then with SparkPeople I was able to achieve BMI 21, a weight I always wanted!

That's a great idea, Marsha....as always and I am a person that does lists...but actually, I really do know now that I was just frustrated with ME! I and so pleasantly surprised that as I reread Beck, I DID get most of it before. I want to repeat it so I can quote what she actually SAID in the book to myself (the cards)...so it boiled down to just me being too hard on myself, as usual! I have been fine all day today, after I actually started it again...but those are wonderful ideas if I ever get "frustrated with me again!" I guess I was letting the sabotaging thoughts get me...but I do know how to handle them....this was a lesson for me in itself! Oh, and it wasn't really John's stuff...he doesn't do much messing, but he lets me bounce off him so I can "hear" it and figure it out. emoticon

A Friend is one to whom one may pour out the contents of
one's heart, chaff and grain together, knowing that the
gentlest of hands will take and sift it, keep what is worth
keeping and with a breath of kindness blow the rest away.

THANKS for the great idea on my blog! I think I am out of sorts because I feel "lost" without my book-learning. (I have always loved school and book-learning, so that is an AWESOME idea!

At birth we boarded the train and met our parents, and we believe they will always travel on our side. However, at some station our parents will step down from the train, leaving us on this journey alone. As time goes by, other people will board the train; and they will be significant i.e. our siblings, friends, children, and even the love of your life. Many will step down and leave a permanent vacuum. Others will go so unnoticed that we don't realize that they vacated their seats. This train ride will be full of joy, sorrow, fantasy, expectations, hellos, goodbyes, and farewells. Success consists of having a good relationship with all passengers requiring that we give the best of ourselves.

The mystery to everyone is: We do not know at which station we ourselves will step down. So, we must live in the best way, love, forgive, and offer the best of who we are. It is important to do this because when the time comes for us to step down and leave our seat empty we should leave behind beautiful memories for those who will continue to travel on the train of life.

I wish you a joyful journey on the train of life. Reap success and give lots of love. More importantly, thank God for the journey.

Happy Monday my friend.
Hugs
Pat
