Positive Change and Challenge

Monday, August 03, 2009

I am in my third week of SPARKPeople and really have been enjoying the experience. But I know that my biggest challenge is sticking with this when the scale or my mood are not in sync with the struggles of staying on an eating plan.

In the last two weeks I have made some very positive changes in my life. I have recorded all of my food. I have been drinking water. I have made healthier eating choices. I have lost 11 pounds. I have just begun moving this body of mine. I have ordered some SPARKPeople exercise items. I have discovered the Wii Fit that my college-aged girls have been using. These are all great discoveries, but keeping them going is the real challenge for me. Finding a way to continue on track, and to improve is going to be a real struggle. So I need to keep my head up and move forward as much as possible.

I need to maintain the positive change, and hopefully increase these changes bit by bit. And I need to challenge myself to stick with it.



Fresh Start

Monday, July 27, 2009

Another fresh start - how many times have I heard that one? Obviously not enough, because here I am again. New website, new program, same goals, new attitude. I hope that this new attitude sticks around a bit.

So yes, I've been down this road many times before, and success is usually not found at the end of the road. Why? A little road construction . . . a big detour . . . I lost my map? My compass? Perhaps all of the above!

I truly want to succeed. I need to succeed. Perhaps I WILL SUCCEED.

I am one week in and recorded a six pound loss. Always starts quick. The key is to keep up the attitude, not the weight loss. The attitude is what will get me through, so I must keep my eyes off the scale and my attention and focus on my attitude . . . how I feel . . . what I've accomplished. Not a number!

Here's to success!
