This is going to be a very short blog. LOL

My dream vacation is to spend at least a month wandering in the highlands of Scotland. While in Scotland I would also like to spend some time around Lewis and the Isle of Skye to practice speaking Gaelic!

How will I prepare for Halloween....

I stay away from buying anything chocolatey. If I buy chocolate, I will eat the chocolate and then end up having to buy more for the trick-or-treaters. Waiting until the day of does not help with chocolate, I will still eat it. So, I buy hard candy instead. Hard candy does not tempt me at all. I can keep it for the trick-or-treaters and then I take the leftovers to work and leave it for my coworkers.

What have I been most proud of since starting my weightloss journey?

The answer to that is a short one. I am most proud of the fact that I have not given up, even though I haven't been as successful as I had hoped to be.

    If you have lost one pound, one inch, changed one thing so you would become more healthy then you have bee successful. Sometimes we have to start slow, or if you started great guns and slow down that is okay too. Be kind and patient to yourself. emoticon emoticon

5 things I'm looking forward to:

There are lots of things I'm looking forward to, but I guess my top 5 would be:

1. being able to fit in an airplane seat without embarrassment
2. being able to shop for clothes without that feeling of dread
3. being able to play with my nephews without getting tired right away
4. my legs not rubbing together when I walk
5. looking decent in a one-piece swimsuit

    These goals are so doable, which is good because most of them are mine too

    Your goals are great visuals. They are always good to go to when tempted to open the fridge. I like your attitude. My progress has been slow as well but I do know that this website has been a God sent to me and keeps me from gaining. I start the day out doing the Sparkpoints and for some reason, everyday, they take me to someones blog or page that has important information or messages for me. Good luck and keep on Blogging.

You can tell by my infrequent writing that I do not like to blog! LOL
However, I will do it for a challenge, so here it is.
Laura asked us to write about our greatest struggle. In the past, I've written that consistency is my greatest struggle, which is still true. However, lately, motivation seems to be a problem as well. I try to stay positive and I'm always telling others not to let slip ups get in the way, but I don't take my own advice. I try not to let it show and I don't talk about it, but staying motivated has become hard work for me. I get mad at myself when I slip up, I'm worried about my mother, I feel stressed at work...all the things that I'm allowing to get in the way of a positive outlook and staying on track. If I were truly motivated, I wouldn't allow anything to get in the way. But everyday, I have to make myself do some sort of exercise, I have to make myself stay in calorie range. I'm so much better at supporting others than supporting myself! I guess what I need to do is-every time I give someone else a positive comment, I need to look in the mirror and say the same to me.

End of ramble emoticon

    I can completely empathize withy you Lucy I am darn good at giving advice but following it I am a work in progress. So look after the exercise ten minutes at a time and the food one meal at a time and the weight loss and motivation will look after itself.......and I too will look in the mirror to help myself

    As long as you can "make" yourself exrecise and stay in calorie range, I think you're staying motivated. I know how hard it is, I have to push myself too, especially for the exercise. I hurt all over, and I want to use this as an excuse every day to not exercise. I talk to myself in the mirror a lot (letting the whole world know how crazy I am here!), so if it helps, do it! The gal in the mirror is always our worst enemy! Take care of youself!
