I'm on my way

Monday, May 26, 2014

Well, I am actually DOING it. I have lost almost 15 pounds so far and am finally starting to make headway.

One day I just started to read blogs on here, how people were making progress, how GOOD they felt, and all of the hard work they did. I was so happy for them, and yet so motivated to reach that feeling as well.

I think I just needed to reach that point where I said, you know, there IS no easy route around this. If I am going to do this, it IS going to be difficult. I am going to have to not overeat at times, not go overboard in the kitchen at night and to stop the bargaining thing: "Maybe I will eat just a little. Well, ONE extra piece wont hurt me. Or, the classic: "I"LL START TOMORROW!"

Well guess what! I have been saying that for YEARS and it never happened. One day I just decided, no more tomorrows! NOW is the time! I feel I am finally starting to break the habit. Some nights it is more difficult then others. But I am just plain tired of feeling low energy and not being able to fit into nicer clothes. I am almost pre diabetes, and my triglyceroids are high. this is a WAKEUP call for me. Two family members of mine both had heart attacks in their 30's, and I am 28. I want to change and take care of my body, improve my health.

My depression feels more stable, my anxiety level is going down, and best of all I have HOPE. And Gratitude because I know God is bringing people into my life to motivate and support me. And that I am not alone on my spark journey. People are here, and know what I'm going through. I want you to know friends I am always here, and if you need support/friendship Send me a spark mail. I have always held the attitude a person can never have too many friends.

I am feeling good, and if only just 15 pounds so far, I worked very hard to get rid of those 15, and now I KNOW I am going to keep going!!! I'm not exactly where I want to be, but I know that I am on my way!

    emoticon on the MELT, Amy!! That is sooo emoticon my friend!! Sometimes, when we're saying, "just one," or that we'll "start tomorrow," and it goes on like that for a long time, it's not that it's not working, but that our well meaning plans have to DIG DEEP and get around a lot of negativity that's be PILED UP on us through many years. Once our words have penetrated (through countless repetitions) a little area in the barrier, than it really is a BREAK THROUGH. I am sooo *H*A*P*P*Y* for your Amy!! ::squishes n' squeezes:: emoticon

    Good attitude and may more realizations come pouring in to you. Good results are bound to happen since you are doing it now. Good going - keep it up and congrats on the 15 pounds. Pat yourself on the back and remember that God gives you the desires of your heart and you have Holy Spirit leading and guiding you as you go on with your journey.

    Congrats! 15 pounds is quite an accomplishment!

I agree with you about "now is the time"; that is one reason I don't bother with making New Years resolutions; if I feel I need to break a bad habit, or make a change in my life, I start that day.

I like that quote about transformation too. Even though I am now at my goal weight, I still have work to do. As I say on my Spark page, my life is a continual "work in progress".

ignite the spark

Wednesday, March 26, 2014

The last two months in my personal life I have been struggling quite a bit with things. My depression has been very severe, which is why I have been absent. I hope sp friends understand. I am starting therapy and am trying to build myself up again. I also decided to make a "forgiveness list" which is something that I read about in a book. You write a list of all of the people you have ever felt resentment towards or still harbor ill at ease feelings with when you think of them, even people as far back as grade school. You write down the reason you are angry with them, the lessons you learned from them, burn the paper, and make a promise to go on with your life and release the negativity and hatred. I realized that there were people in my past I was still holding grudges towards that I did not even think about until now, and it felt really good doing this.

I have just been really struggling with some things that are hard to describe in words, but had to work on myself and just really get to the bottom of some core issues in my life. I just wanted to let everyone know that I really have missed everyone. Its always amazing how if you dont come on awhile, friends still care sending notes of encouragement goodies. I just love Spark. There is no other website I have encountered in my life where people promote such kindness and motivation. I just really need to get started again.

I have also been trying Emotional Freedom Technique. If anyone who doesnt know what that is its where you tap on certain accupuncture points on your body and relieve stress and it releases seretonin in the body, I believe there is a spark team for it here too! Its very easy to practice. Its been helping me, and instead of snapping at people or runnning to the kitchen, I have been doing this and am noticing myself feeling better. I recommend this to anyone reading.

I really hope I can get in touch with friends and that I can find my way again.

    Oh, Amy, that's sort a' like it's been for me too!! February had a lot of strange changes going on that really threw confusion into my life, with people who seemed angry and stand offish and then, this past month was creepy and toxic, and just blind-sided me. I almost lost it with the anxiety and depression of it all, but, yes, there were/are those who held me up and helped me through most of the negative and they were people I've met on SP.

I love the therapy you're getting to build yourself back up again and I'm going to have to try that "forgiveness list" you've discovered. Sometimes, I think it's not so much resentment or even ill at ease feeling as much as extremely hurt and feelings of betrayal from people one can trust, but not trust anymore that need to be addressed. I love that the promise is to the one who is trying to heal, rather than to the ones that did the trashing.

Sometimes, those depths you're talking about CAN'T be described using words. Thank the Lord you are going to get to the bottom and find the core. I've missed your loving SWEETNESS and am sooo *happy* you're pressing on despite the fierceness of the battle. You bring such HOPE for the rest of us, m'dear, and I can only wish and pray a hundredfold back to you!! emoticon

    So many good choices you are making for yourself. Depression is tough. But... it is a roller coaster and hopefully your downs will be less frequent, last a shorter time and be less severe. I was in OA and a big part of the 12 steps is forgiveness. It really does make a difference.

    emoticon emoticon I am really impressed how you are taking over your situation and changing what you can and giving the rest to the Lord. At the dollar store you can get plaques with the serinity prayer on it and i would suggest you put one up where you spend the most time in your house. I had been sexually abused by my own dad and some others until i was 12 due to lack of supervision by either parent plus verbal abuse till i was over 18 but it took giving my heart to the Lord before i could come to terms with all the abuse and God worked with me down thru the years in his time and thank the Lord i been a christian for 41 years in June and i am at peace with my life and love living . I am here daily if i can help you in anyway !

    I wish you well and good things. Usually I look back as far as grade school and feel sorry for the little boy I fought with in school, Makes me wonder if he harbors any resentment towards me... !! It's a two way street people have done things to you, and they feel bad later on for doing it, guilt is what they call it. Hope that helps that sometimes people have the problem but on the other end...don't get me wrong I'm not a mean person but I had my moments years and years ago and only a few times.

    I like your stress less poster, too. I gave a short presentation on tapping once, I may have to go back and look again. I hope it helps. I am quite down too, because of failed relationship and was just reading about thought stopping and self-affirmations. I can't believe how much control I let someone else have over my thoughts! May we say, better days will soon be ours.
