I’m terribly short of time today but just have to post something to say how amazed I am at my current efforts. For some time I’ve been processing all the changes I’ve been through and taking inspiration from other Sparkers principally to set up new habits for the future. I am finally Sparked to make something happen and feel things improving in ways I never dreamt – less wine – better portion control and more care put into how to tweak my basically healthy cooked-from-scratch meals so they scrape home to a lower-calorie finish. Even my exercise levels, which have always been my greatest problem, have risen in ten-minute bites and I am deriving a modicum of pleasure from the fact that my body just feels easier and better stretched. I still haven't solved my hula hoop problem but am working on it.
So – all is going is well right now. I haven’t been on the scale yet as I resolved not to worry myself with all of that, but I feel healthier and more energetic which is, after all, what matters most.
What I want to say to Sparkers who are in a phase of struggling with it all – (one that I’ve just emerged from) is that once you find the oomph to restart, the satisfaction factor is pretty high - a real encouragement to continue on the journey with renewed vigour. Give it a go!
