Day # 13

Saturday, July 23, 2011

Day # 13, stepped on scale today after about 3 weeks, was up a bit. She asked if I had started my 50 day challenge and I told her I was on day 13, but the junk is gone. So she wants me to concentrate on portion control, "get out the measuring cups and scale". So back to basics I go !

    Back to basic is a great idea. Could it be due to all your walking too. Thats the hardest part is pinpointing what to change . You can do this just remember to trust the process .Hugs to you

    I agree...
back to basics --sometimes we get portion distortion...since I have been sick it has been wild for portions most times way to little other times too much ---so back to the measuring and scales for me too...

hugs Jo

    Barb, I think that you ARE a winner! You knocked out the junk food and that is the biggest and hardest step. The rest will come naturally. Measuring and weighing is a great idea and I do it when I'm not sure. You CAN do it my friend. emoticon

The above is what I must remind myself daily.

    Hugs emoticon you did it before and you will do it again.

I felt some hunger yesterday and I told myself ,it was OK.
I relaxed and sat down and had an orange.
This is so much better then having a panic attack and grabbing
stuff that I used to eat when I felt a little hunger.

I still think the trick is to eat small very often all day
especially in the early stages of getting fit.

Hugs to you Barbara, we are going to do this.

Day # 10

Wednesday, July 20, 2011

Day 10, the time is moving by quickly and yes it is getting easier. The scale is not showing any progress, however I know that my health is progressing much better. I do see my blood sugars are lowering and for me that is a very important progress.

I am determined to stay the course and go the 50 day streak.

Day # 9

Tuesday, July 19, 2011

Today while I continue on my 50 day journey, on one of my Spark teams, a member posted for us today to "Live, Laugh and Love" so that is what my day is going to be about. I'll continue to eat clean, healthy, and abstinent eating.

Another friend said as each day goes by it gets easier and easier. Yes I have had some obstacles in my path but I have worked around them and at the end of the day was well pleased with my accomplishments.

"Above all Life should be fun!"
"Take time for some Fun in Your Life Today!"

    Live Love and Laugh

it would be nice if we had a key to these words
for one whole day we could turn it on for the world
to all be in harmony with --Live Love and Laughter.

What a day that would be.

    Barb i love this blog. I think in life people dont live laugh or love enough so important to do those three things in life and to do them often. You are doing this and the person who said it gets easier is absoultley right. You may have difficult moments or even difficult days its how we chose to over come those moments that matter most. i can never tell you enough how proud i am of you. i know first hand that this is not an easy thing it takes alot of hard work and dedication. It takes believing in ourselves and believing that we re worth this. We are worth it and i believe you will do this all 50 days and then more. I will be here walking beside you ever day you journey through and i will be cheering you on across the finish line on day 50 .
