2009 is here. I can't look back and wine about what did not happen as I would like. It's time to go forward. It's time to set my face like flint and focus on the now. What am I going to do now to make 2009 mine? First I confer with God and follow His lead. I can do all things through Christ Who strengthens. I am a winner already and I stand on this statement. No matter what happens, I am determined to make my weight loss goal come to fruition this year. I am serious. I do not enjoy being overweight. I grew up most of my days being overweight. Years ago I used to think of it as being cursed. That was ignorance talking. I have since accepted myself and instead of feeling sorry for myself I became proactive and joined Spark in July of 2007. A choice that has changed my life for the good.
I have not lost all the weight I want but I will this year. What is my plan for the year? I have joined the January New You Boot Camp. I feel confident that this will kick start my weight loss success again. I also will kick up the cardio again and use a variety of DVDs and other activities so that I will not be bored with the journey. Sometimes that happens and we slip back into old habits, but we must remember the Prize and keep on moving towards it. We must keep moving up! We can't tread water too long. It's a choice to move towards the healthy side. I am not taking any excuses from myself. No more self pity. I put this weight on all of my life, I can take it off no matter how long it takes. No more excuses! 2009 is mine. Blogging more and staying connected to my teams and the different boards help me stay motivated also. I love the interaction on the boards. I like meeting new friends and helping others to stay encouraged. No one is perfect. We all fall off the wagon, but we must pull our boot straps up and get back on the wagon of successful weight loss again. It is so amazing when that weight comes off, then there is a plateau. But I will not allow that to stop me. I will get past any and all plateaus, distractions, and anything else that may try to get in my way of a great success.
God is on my side and He is on this ride with me till the end and even further. I have faith in His Help. I know that His strength will get me through the hard times. I also will continue to journal on and off of Spark. It helps a lot I believe. To go back and read what happened on a certain day will help you stay on track, or get back on track if you fell left again. My ambition is to be a motivator for others to look up to and gain courage to continue on the journey to fitness and health. We all want to be healthy and sometimes weight is what stands in the way of that health that so many of us desire to manifest. Great things will happen this year. Nothing shall be impossible to them that believe. Lord, I believe!
Blessings and Prayers for all successes.
