I stayed up too late last night, so getting up this morning was more difficult than it should have been. I have to start taking better care of myself, starting right now. I packed enough good foods for the entire work day, so I absolutely no excuses. I can do this.

Week 1 is done and gone. Overall I am really proud of myself -- I did very well. I managed to lose 6.2 lbs from Monday through today. I made my best effort to stay within my nutritional ranges, I got on SP every single day and tracked my food, I stayed up to date with my friends and I drank an ocean of water. Sure I ate a couple things that I could have done without. It was hard, I'm not saying it wasn't. But it wasn't the hardest thing I've ever done. I know that the first couple weeks I will lose big. I know my journey moving forward won't always be this smooth. But I know I can do it. I know that if I just continue to do what needs to be done, this weight will come off slowly and surely and I will get stronger and healthier every single week that goes by.
Here's to Spark, here's to starting over, and here's to the Firecrackers for all their support and love!

What would it feel like to know that whatever I wanted to do, my body would respond? No matter what I tried, my body would go where I want it to, do what I ask of it?
I cannot raise both of my legs at the same time, from a lying position. They are too heavy for me. I have to use my hands to help move them. I am not even 38 years old. That is simply ridiculous. It is ridiculous that I have let myself get to weak and out of shape that I have no core strength, no basic strength left. I do not trust myself to jump off anything -- whether it's the tailgate of the truck, a small curb on the street, a stair, anything. I never know if my feet will be where they are supposed to be.
I wonder what it will be like to know that my body is strong and capable, and I can trust it to do what I ask. I can't wait to know hwat it feels like to push my body to its limits.

more than just words on a page. Sometimes it means acknowledging the accomplishments of the past and putting them where they belong...in the past. For me at least. I had been holding desperately onto the fact that I lost 40 lbs on Spark in 2007. My ticker said my starting weight was 235. And now I'm back to 226, and I was hanging onto those 9 lbs I had kept off. For what? I am not discounting what I did before, but now I am moving forward. This morning I made the difficult decision to reset my goal start date to July 31, and reset my ticker to my weight from yesterday. Those 40 lbs I lost....the 9 lbs I kept off.... they are important but they are not so important that I want to be bogged down in the past. My ticker looks like I'm starting fresh, and that's what I'm doing. So here's to watching the ticker really tell the story of this new journey.

I have reset my overal weight loss goal (80 lbs), reset my timeline, and resest my thinking. I was talking to a friend, and then my mom as well, last night and saying the same things I have been thinking: "I know that if I lose weight I will be healthier and feel better. I know that I can't control so many aspects of my Fibromyalgia but I know that the symptoms are relieved somewhat when I lose weight, exercise and eat healthy." So what I am waiting for????? Myself. I'm waiting on myself to make a commitment. Why in the world did I wait so long this time? I am ready. I am really ready to do it right this time, and not give up halfway through like I did before. The past is behind me, and I am not going to walk backwards in my footsteps. I am going to move forward with purpose.
