DO I REALLY WANT THIS????? Think of me. ( A conversation with myself)

Sunday, August 01, 2010

Where to start? I am writing down my reasons and ramblings to hopefully encourage and possibly discourage myself when needed.
WHY???...why am I where I am? If I am reading this, it can only mean that I am
contemplating eating.
DON'T!!!!
Think of Brandon.
Your son loves you = you love your son.
I want to be a part of my sons life forever, in no way do I want to miss one insey bitsey part.
You = I, may not be if you continue to eat.
Think of George.
George loves you = you love George.
I really want to be able to grow old together,
have grandkids together.
You = I won't if you cheat.
think of all of your family and friends.
They love you and you them.
Think of you = me.
I want to be able to enjoy LIFE!
Watch the many sunrises yet to come.
I want to actually feel good and look good.
I want to be able to look myself in the mirror and say
I DID IT!
I don't want to feel sorry for myself anymore.
I don't want others to pity me.
I HATE DIABETES.
I don't want to hate myself.
I want to love myself.
I want to live and love.
I don't want to live crippled or without vital organs.
I DON'T WANT TO DIE.
So....
DO I REALLY WANT THIS?
Think of me.

    When I feel the food calling I try to stop and say WHAT AM I FEELING? ...bored, lonely, sad... not that it always stops me LOL but I try to FEEL the feelings instead of stuff them down with food.

It is great that you are writing blogs to yourself! You can do this! YOU ARE WORTH THE effort to make the lifestyle changes!

Have a successful day!

    I think you just summed how how many of us feel. Think of yourself & how worthy you are of all your hard work & efforts! Keep up the good work.

Pieces of your Soul

Friday, July 30, 2010

Whoo hoo! My first blog. I have to admit I am a little nervous, but why? We are all friends here, if nothing else I am having one of those frequent chats with myself that drives my family nuts! But hey I have to talk to someone who actually listens (most of the time)LOL!
I have been on Spark People for @ 2 weeks now and I love it. I have to admit that I really was not sure what to expect, as I was only looking for a way to track my food and find an easier way to calorie count. When it flashed up on Google, I thought why not give it a try, what have you got to lose? Imagine my surprise with all that I have gained! Tools galore! Friends that support and encourage you! People who CARE! It isn't like I don't have friends out in the 'real' world, but it is like finding pieces of your soul, with people who have the same or similar issues. I send a huge THANK YOU to my spark friends. Those I have already and those who are yet to be.
One downside is I am on the computer a huge amount. As I have to see who is doing what; what success's have been achieved; what goodies have arrived and who to send to; And of course updating all your nutrition and fitness. But I am finding I am getting up earlier in the day to accomplish what needs to be done and more, so that I can spend the time I need to and desire to on the computer.
Thanks for listening! And again thanks for sharing the goodness of your hearts, pieces of your soul!
Hugs,
Angela
