A Big Thank You!

Wednesday, December 28, 2011

OMG I am almost there! A study on getting real and thinking about what you want and getting to what you want! I know it took me awhile I started in "08" at 179lb and I still have an itty bit to go, but I now feel like it is done! I have re-learned... not food but how to take care of myself ! Thank you Spark People! I love what you helped me to do! I have lost 44lb but I have also lost most of the feelings that Became a dismal mind set, that got me to that point I was 21lb from being 200lb, my wake up! Now 7lb from my goal, I am so much better off for taking my time to shed the pounds, my whole life has changed. Learning one step at a time is a huge... repeat HUGE lesson!
Again, Many thanks SparkPeople and all the staff for the thoughtful work each and every one of them do!
Amy in Alaska!

    Amy, Thank You! Reading your blogs and receiving replies from you got me through an extremely difficult time in my weight loss journey. I've got a long way to go, but thanks to you and Sparks People, I didn't give up. emoticon

still here

So here I am at 150lb, my goal is 135lb. I have 15lb's to go. I was looking at my home records. Maaan I had gotten down to 145lb, and have gone up to 156lb in the last year. We all make mistakes, we can go backwards and still go forward. I choose to keep on with going forward! Me, Myself and I make this journey.
I keep this in my mind. I can do it! So can you!

    I'm in the same boat. How easy it was to get to that number the first time, but as things 'got back to normal', so did the weight creep back on . . . goal is to lose those 15 lbs and feel healthy again!

    Yes, we can go back & forth, sometimes...up and down. But, you will move forward and WE can do this!! You go girl!!

What a great time to get going. Being the first day of the week and the first day of the month!
I have had some issues in my personal life since New years day. I have been on hold so to speak. Last night I had an ah-ha moment.
Last I wrote I was 12lbs from my goal. As of today I have 18lb's to go. I do not kick myself for the 6 extra pounds, because of SparkPeople it is not more! I gained those 6lb's in the first 4 months of this year and then have just maintained.

Now, this very morning I started taking up all my good habits from before. I walked my 2 miles, I did stretch and leg lifts and here I am feeling good about myself again. I know what I have to do and I know how to do it. I know I can!

    Yay! Perfect attitude to get things done! I get more excited reading the blogs of people who have mental progress than those of physical progress, because lets face it- there's always going to be things going wrong and getting in the way and whatnot, and until you have the MENTAL edge to deal with it, you'll not have true success. Congrats on being a step ahead of the game! emoticon

HI one and all!

Jem, your right about complacency only I think about it as sitting on your laurel's. And guilt is in the mix! I sit hard and fast on my achievements and then find myself wondering why I have not moved on!
My daughter just did an invitational run for the 1st to 6th graders, her run was a mile and a half. She came in 2nd to last. She thinks everything should be easy and that she can do anything. She finished the race and that is good.(really good) She feels bad about not being better. She thought she was better. What we told her this week, prepare. What we tell her every week, prepare.
Now it dawns on me, prepare! I am in my late forties and I really need to prepare! REALLY!
Hi all, think positive and try to live it!


Marking time.

I'm not sure what a blog is supposed to be. So I decided to copy what was on my spark page and journal out loud so to speak..make sense?
Time is flying by and I am my own worst enemy. It is time to change my mind about what I will do and not do. I will no longer make up lame excuses for not getting out of the house and walking. I will stop being a lazy big butt! I have maintained my 25lb loss and that is GREAT! Now time to move on to better things!
Well here it is a month later and I took my own words to heart and have been out walking! Today I did a 4 mile walk and I am patting myself on the back! June is not over but so far I have walked 44miles, lazy butt no more!
7/25/2009 Time is passing pretty quick! Since the beginning of June I have lost 9lb's and walked 119 miles What a payoff and am now in to a size smaller jeans. I'm not done yet I have 12lb's to go. And guess what? I can do it! I am walking 2 miles every day and just started swimming for 3 days a week an hour or more. Thanks SparkPeople for a place to make me accountable to myself.

    Way to go!! I'm also walking, but am doing about 3 miles each weekday. I unfortunately took the weekend off, but will make up for it this week with my walking buddy at lunchtime. My biggest problem is just getting outside and doing it... Once I'm there I really enjoy it, so my biggest battle is with myself. I'm going to work on motivation this week....

Keep up the great work!! emoticon
