Isn't it so!

Monday, July 12, 2010

I read this somewhere. It seems to fit.
If you have made mistakes there is always another chance for you.
You may have a fresh start any moment you choose, for this thing we call
'failure' is not the falling down, but the staying down.
I'm up and running. No stopping me now.
We have been in the garden today. It really did not do as good as we like but I do have lots of squash, zucchini, sugar baby watermelons and cantaloupe. I think we will plow this garden under soon and plant a fall garden. Can you believe it, fall garden!! Its only five months left in this year. Its hard to believe how fast the time passes.

    It sounds like you had lots of good produce even if it didn't do as well as you would have liked. It is hard to believe it's so late in the year already!

Self-forming power

Saturday, July 10, 2010

"If all the discoveries which men need to make, the most important at the present moment, is that of the self-forming power treasured up in themselves!" William Elllery Channing (1780-1842) Have you found your self-forming power? I see a glimmer. I feel it building in me, a little step at a time. I have taken my life back.
I would be interested to hear what comes to mind when you hear that term "self-forming power." I love words, they are so powerful.

    In general, knowing that I am the reason for failure or success. I don't go for victim mentality.

What ardently we wish, we soon believe." I wish I might have the wish I wish tonight.
I wish to be healthy and weigh 150 pounds. I do believe with hard work I will get my wish.
I believe with hard work I will maintain the weight when I get it off.
I know in my heart I will be the best I can be. I am studying people who have kept the weight off for a few years and they are doing no different from when they first lost the weight. One lady said don't stand around and enjoy the praise, immediately go into maintenance. Don't let the excitement of the transformation let you put your guard down. We have to be ever vigilance. When the excitement is over and you get back to everyday life you may get depressed. That's when you really have to be careful. I experience that now. You lose five pounds get excited, your clothes are looser, you then have to continue on to the next five and the next. Sometimes it gets old and you don't want to eat vegetables or eat healthy but you need to sit down and take a few deep breaths and realize you are ful filling your dream.
This is what I want and I will do what it takes to get it right and stick with it the rest of my life.
I will be happy and I will go on the offense to protect everything I have lost and learned. I will do things that I have dreamed of only if the weight was not in the way. Well soon it will not be there and I can do anything this body can think up to do. I will be doing things that I have not been able to do long before I reach goal and I will enjoy each victory.

    Thank you for writting this this is so true..
wishes are a funny word for me.. cuz.. I think anything you want in life you can make it happen. I dont think you need to wish for it.. I think as long as you sais it you can make it happen, and if being healhy and 150lbs is what you want then make it happen, if being a red head is what you want them make it happen, if having money is what you want them make it happen.. I think we can do just about anything we set our minds out too do. as long as it is legal and moral..
Keep up the good work..

getting naked

Thursday, July 08, 2010

"In order to swim one takes off all one's clothes-in order to aspire to the truth one must undress in a far more inward sense, divest oneself of all one's inward clothes, of thoughts, conceptions, selfishness etc. before one is sufficiently naked." Soren Kierkegaard, journal, 1854
I am learning to get naked and learn who I am. I want to get every bit of enjoyment out of my life. I want to strip all the old negative me away and find the joy and laughter. Come on Sparkies and join me on this adventure.

    I'll join you on the adventure, but when we're in the same room can we at least wear a robe?!

Yeah, woo hoo, I lost another five pounds. So glad I staying consistent I love the way I feel , like I am unwrapping a present to me. I can't wait to see what happens along my journey and what surprises awaits me. It feels real good when I lay down at night and my stomach is growling. I'm enjoying the feeling because I know I have fed my body healthy today and it has enough nourishment and that growling is just my body losing some more fat, so I just smile and sleep very sound indeed and in a few days I will weigh and see what surprises await me.
Good night sweet Spark friends and may your stomach also growl and don't forget to smile. emoticon
