Well I'm proud of me. Yesterday I was so busy, going places, people needing attention (granddaughter, got shots) all kinds of things taking my time. About five o'clock I decided I needed to keep my streak alive so I did my 36 minutes on the bike and 20 minutes weight lifting. I was so proud after I did it. I just could not get my points.
I got kind of down this morning after I measured. There was no difference in the measuring tape. I know my blouses are fitting better and other things are looser. I'm not going to weight until February 4 so I thought maybe there would be a difference in the tape. I read some more of my Spark book again and got to feeling better. I have a goal to lose 20 pounds . When I reach that I'll go for the next 20 pounds so on and so on. I have other goals I am doing and I am on a streak of 18 days. I know this is from now on, eating healthy, exercising, drinking plenty water, Sparking, so what is the problem. So what if the scale does not move like I think it should. So what if the measuring tape does not move like I want it too. It will, in time. I get to feeling good and confident and I forget how big I am and what a journey I have before me but that is okay also. All I can do is one day at a time and I am going to do that day the best I can.

greek and lebanese food

Wednesday, January 20, 2010

I am so proud of myself. We went to take care of business and it was time to eat lunch. I knew I wanted to make wise choices but sometimes when we go out to eat I forget everything I have learned and overeat. Wellll we went to a Greek and Lebanese restaurant that we had never been to before and we made healthy choices. I had grilled shrimp, small salad, small serving of hummus and my husband wanted me to taste how tender the beef and lamb was so I had a bite, little bitty,. We had unsweetened tea which was great, it had mint in it. My husband had the beef and lamb but it was a decent serving, not too much. We were satisfied when we left. I was so proud we passed the test of going out to eat. I wondered how I would do. Its been 17 days since I started over and I have been doing great, eating healthy and exercising. I feel so peaceful and content. I am starting to read the Spark again. It really has touched a spot in me that needed motivating.

    Congratulations to you! I just started back three weeks ago myself. It is so exciting and energizing to see that one CAN have self-control, instead of mindlessly consuming food and not living in the moment, enjoying each bite. I have decided that I want to savor each taste. If I must consume the calories, I darned sure want to taste them! :-) Small bites, slowly chewing, and trying new flavorful foods makes this a food journey. Congratulations on your successful outing and I wish you many, many more!

I have the power!!

"What this power is, I cannot say
all I know is that it exists...And it
becomes available only when you are in
that state of mind in which you know exactly what you want...
And are fully determined not to quit until you get it."

Any life run on self-will can hardly be a success. On that basis we are almost always in collision with something or somebody, even though our motives are good. We want to run the whole show. If only people would do as we wished life would be great. We know we could get this weight off. We become self-pitying. Other people and circumstanes are at fault. We are self-centered. From OA

I'm in charge now

We can change subconscious behaviors if we become more conscious of them.
Explain to that part of you that encourages behaviors you want to change that you know its accustomed to being in control, but now you have taken control.
I read this somewhere on line and liked it and thought maybe it might help someone. It gave me an ah ha moment .
Spark on everybody.
