A few new discoveries!

Monday, September 22, 2008

I have been having a time trying to stay on track on the week ends as you all know by now, and I tend to agonize over it, well I've decided to look at things in a new light, and look at the positive side of things.

I eat healthy five days a week and I exercise at least 6 days a week, so I have come a long way, I didn't do any of this before Spark. I am acutely aware of the good foods I eat, I'm feeling so much better, my diabetes is under better control, so I should be happy with all this, that's a lot of changes in a short period of time, the week ends will be something I just have to try a little harder to conquer, so I will stop agonizing over this and carry on with all the good things I have achieved, a 27 lb weight loss so far, better health, meeting a lot of wonderful Spark people. Life is good and it will continue to get better.

Be happy with all the goals you achieve, and don't try to make things so tough you will just stop all together, things will fall in place for you, just give it some time.

    Good solution to the weekend problem. We never give ourselves enough credit for all the good things we do. It's the little things we don't like that loom large and cast the biggest shadow over all we are trying to accomplish. You are making positive changes and great progress.

A long week!

Sunday, September 14, 2008

Here it is Sunday, a whole week has passed, I didn't do as well as I thought I would, had a few food breakdowns, don't know why I seem to have wavered so much.

Lisa and I are starting a challenge between the two of us from now til the end of october, maybe that's what I need to keep me on the straight and narrow! We will see!!!

Tomorrow is my weigh in day, hopefully I didn't mess things up too much and I will show a loss, if not I will try even harder next week! I seem to be building a bit more resolve about diet and exercise, one step at a time, it can't all be done in a snap.

    Sometimes we hit bumps in the road but keep on going. Don't forget muscle weights more than fat so when you start working out a lot, you may not lose.
That is great you have a friend to challenge. That will help motivate you.
Keep up the good work. Mary :)

    Pretty picture. I love flowers.
That's cool that you have buddy to partner with. Good luck with the challenge. With your resolve, you will soon see some progress.
Never give up:)

Day 1

Monday, September 08, 2008

I am not new to Spark, I am here on a second journey to lose 60 lbs, I already lost 27 with Spark the first time around. I left for personal reasons, but missed being a part of Spark I rejoined with a new user name and a fresh start.

Today is day 1 of this journey, wish me luck, I will need it to remain focused and positive.

    You will be glad you came back. We are:) I love this site. The support is phenomenal. This journey is not easy, and that's where SP comes in. It keeps me going and going and going! There are so many success stories here and so many of us reaching for the golden ring. I plan to be one of those success stories. It would be lovely to be there with my spark friends. Together we are strong.
