The Social End of Spark

Saturday, March 30, 2013

This is going to make a huge difference for me. This time around, I am making the effort to visit my teams forums. Not only am I posting on threads, I am also reading comments. I am taking the plunge and adding Sparkers as friends. I am taking the time to read their blogs. By putting forth this effort, I have received great advice, encouraged, and motivated. This was a part of Spark I am doing much differently this time. Part of my reinvention. Reach out to others, for help and encouragement is always one click away. I am so glad I am making this part of my journey a top priority.

    It makes a huge difference. My first time around I didn't reach out either either and tried to do it on my own. It was so difficult. It's easier with support and with friends. For me, the hardest part about being "the fat one", about making this journey is that no one really knows what it's like. Unless you have walked this walk you don't really know about the every day little things that a person can come up against. Having others who know what it's like is crucial. I am glad you have found the advice and encouragement you were looking for!

  There is nothing like having a lot of friends to go to when we need encouragement and to share the wonderful moments with as well.
Keep on inviting others.

    It does help to get a crew of Sparkfriends behind you. I've also been on Spark before with much success, but then I stopped. Here's to a new start for both of us!

Reinvention To My Best Version

Friday, March 29, 2013

New life. I am not a religious person per say, but I could not help but reflect today about Good Friday. This season, as we all know, is about defeat and victory. New life in this victory. Spring rises from the depths of winter and breathes new life into every single one of us. I am here for new life. Not just weight loss, but the best version of myself. I want to feel better physically, and I want to smile more, and I want to be excited about small things in life, to name a few goals of my Reinvention... I lost almost 40 pounds during my first membership, only to gain it back again over a few short years. For the last few years, I have been in the depths of my winter. I was living with defeat. The other day I woke up and said to myself, "Blue, do not settle for this life." That is when my Spring truly began. New life after the depths of my winter. One step closer to my best version....

    I lost 40 pounds the first time on SP, but gained it back when I was pregnant and have even gained a bit more in the four years since then. I have been so discouraged about it, but I am forgiving myself and moving on now! SP worked well last time, and I am ready to work it again. I have been watching the videos on Coach, and they have inspired me to find the time I need to do this.

I always find it to be so funny to look back on my despair once I have gotten in the groove, thinking "Huh, that wasn't SO hard- how come it took me so long to just do it?" I don't know what magic helps you get over the hump, really, but I am sending lots of good vibes your way.

    I know you can do it Blue. Everybody go thru experience of lose and gain. I've been there too. I gained 16 pounds in just a matter of 4 month last year. But I am so glad I lost the pounds and you can too. So glad to know you are waking up from the Winter.
My favorite short quote" Winter always become Spring!! " Remember, I am always here to help, if you need some support Ok?

    I also lost 40 pounds the last time I was on here. And I also gained it back in the last two years. We can do it!!

Changing my Ending

Thursday, March 28, 2013

“Although no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand new ending.”
― Carl Bard
That is what I am all about today, making a brand new ending. I will do it this time!! I believe in myself. I have the confidence I need, and the support when my confidence is low. I will meet my personal goals, and my weight loss goals. Not fast, but I will do it because I found faith in me that I did not have last time. I am changing my ending........YES!
