Day # 23

Tuesday, August 02, 2011

Yesterday was a very hard day. No matter how hard you try to avoid stress in your life sometimes it just sneaks up behind you and knocks you in the back of the head.

That's what happened to me yesterday, out of the blue, no warning. Was I upset? Yes. How did I react? I defended myself. Why? Now that's a good question, I shouldn't have to explain myself. I was trying to make the other person feel better I think? But then they didn't mind making me feel badly did they?

I will make the best of today and not turn to junk food. I didn't turn to any yesterday. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    You said it all.
Stress needs to be handled in other ways other then turning to food or it will kill us!

I am glad you made it through the day.

    S0metimes stress just happens. It isn't anything we plan for or want. But, turning to junk food is "OLD" thinking and is what got us where we stay away from that one. Have a better day today, Karen emoticon

Day # 21

Sunday, July 31, 2011

And how are you doing today?

I love my spark friends, they are so behind me in this 50 day journey that I'm taking

" Our first and last love, is self love! "

I read this quote one of my Spark teams and thought it would be appropriate for today. It's a reminder to me that I must learn to love me to believe and want the best for me.

It's a day to day process and I work at it every day. I know the direction I am working towards and eventually I will get there.

This is 2 years ago. At present I am back to the 3 years ago picture.

Day # 19

Friday, July 29, 2011

Still going strong. My friends say "believe to achieve" and I am working on this. I know when the weight started coming back that I stopped believing.

"Believe and act as if it were impossible to fail."
