I did it!

Wednesday, November 18, 2009

I got through the night without eating. I've struggled with night time eating for a very long time. The last couple of days it has started to affect something in me. The disappointment I feel every morning when I awake, was making me feel like a failure. I would give myself a pep talk every night before bed saying, " I will NOT eat tonight, I CAN DO THIS!!!" Then wake up a failure every morning. It was beginning to take a toll. Because of my honesty and willingness to share where I am with others, I was given a suggestion by a fellow Sparker. She said to make a sign and put it on the door so when I get up it'll be the first thing I see. I had a open mind and went to the grocers and got a nice size box and wrote," STOP, DANGER, PRAYER CHANGES THINGS(Eat the word of GOD!), SPARK then a arrow pointing in the direction of my computer, Are YOU Hungry, Angry, Lonely, Tired?".

"Don't eat at night" is one of my SparkStreaks and I'm hoping to look back one day and say, "I've conquered that issue" but for now, I settle for ONE more night. One day, ONE step, and ONE pound at a time! Here's to another successful night!

Have A Sparktacular Day!!!

    Way to go Sabrina! Just remember how proud you feel right now compared to the guilt you would normally feel if you had eaten. Keep it up girl!

    Wow, that's a milestone to overcome something you've conditioned yourself to do. You broke a habit last night which is extremely hard to do, and with every night it will become easier and easier. Good luck to you, you're well on your way!

Giving Thanks.

Sunday, November 01, 2009

Each day presents another opportunity to become the best me that I can be.

I have come such a long ways from where I used to be. I'm making good choices in my life and I hope and pray that those choices will have a positive affect for others as well. When I take a look back from where I came from,I cry because I can see and feel the favor that God has shown me. He has done so much for me and I know I could never recount them. 1 Philippians 1:6 says: "Being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ". He is not through with me yet, I still have a mighty long ways to go. But I thank Him for all He has done, Is doing, And about to do in my life.

Have a great day!
Love and Hugs~Sabrina

    WOW I love that scripture verse. Thanks for the reminder. It's all in God's hands and we just have to listen to where He's leading us. Even in the journey to healthy, where He wants our bodies to honor Him.

Team Member Of The Week.

Monday, October 26, 2009

I was so honored yesterday when I was chosen to be EE's team member of the week.

When I finally got serious about doing something about my weight, Emotional Eaters was the first team I joined. They made me feel welcomed and gave me the encouragement I needed to feel secure in my decision. Without people in your corner to cheer you on,it's pretty hard to succeed. So I'm grateful to God for leading me there because if it had not been for the warm welcomes and YOU CAN DO IT!,I don't know if I would be where I am today mentally. You know the saying that goes: You can do anything you put your mind to do? Well it's true,your mind set must change and the rest will follow. So if you're reading this remember that a warm welcome or smile might mean so much to someone else. Even more than you dare to think.

Lets all remember the newcomers for they are the most important person on our Teams. They are what keep the teams growing.

Have a great day! emoticon emoticon

Keep It Simple.

Friday, October 16, 2009

To err is human, but when the eraser wears out ahead of the pencil, you're overdoing it.-Josh Jenkins

It's okay to make mistakes. But we shouldn't live a life of excuses. We shouldn't slide over our mistakes; we should learn from them.
Excuses keeps us apart from ourselves and others. People don't trust us if we won't admit and accept our mistakes. Relying on excuses dooms us to repeat the same mistakes.
In recovery, we admit and accept our behavior. We do this by continuing to take an inventory of our lives. We do this so we can learn from our mistakes. "Owning" our mistakes helps us grow.

I'm a work in progress. Sick but getting better.
Have a great night!

    How can so few words say so much? This one really spoke to me and I am going to print it and share it with my group of friends at the hospital. Thank you so much for sharing.
