My you've got to be kinding me moment of the day :)

Sunday, June 29, 2014

So I walk into the house and there are candles lit. Mind you middle of the day beautiful outside. I ask whats with the candles. The response I get - "The cat litter smells" so I say change it, the response " no its easier to light the candles"

Gotta love it

When I look in the mirror...

Sunday, May 11, 2014

When I look in a mirror I have a hard time seeing that I've lost weight - I know I have ( I lost 2 pant sizes), but I just don't see it.

I needed something to show me how much I've lost.

Here it is:

I've lost 2 16.5 pound bags of dog food:)

Thanks for stopping by

Have a Happy Mothers Day!

    Take a picture of yourself in some of your bigger clothes, that should help. I like the visual of the dog food,however. Congrats!

    I see the new clothes in a smaller size, but I agree. I don't see the amazing healthy change.
I feel it, though

    I always use bags of sugar...dog food is even better as those "puppies" are heavy. Great job!! Happy Mother's Day to you.

What I've learned while losing almost 40 pounds

Sunday, May 04, 2014

To others they are probably obvious - but I can be stubborn

- I like drinking water, soda is now to sweet
- Walking outside is peaceful (and my me time)
- small changes are easier than big ones
- Its not all about the scale, I am down two sizes and I have more energy
- I really like fresh fruit and veggies

Thanks for stopping by

Have an awesome day emoticon

    CONGRATS. Yes, it isn't rocket science ... but only 5% of us will take it off and keep it off.

Not the blog I started to write...

Saturday, February 15, 2014

I sat down feeling all negative...not sure why. I was going to write a really negative blog, I didn't make me feel better, but seemed to drag me down more. So I deleted it

The positive : I feel better than I have in years, I have great kids and a supportive family and a job that I love

There are negatives in my life, many that i wish I didn't have to deal with. There are so many more positives for that I am truly thankful!

Spark on and remember all the positives that you have to be thankful for

    Yes, the glass is half full. It is always better to remember the positives and they hopefully outweight the negatives. Good for you for turning it around!

    What a great start...choosing positive over negativity! That was half the battle. There are always good things to be thankful for....and the negative? Just things that haven't turned positive yet. Look for the good in the negative. There is something good in everything. Sometimes it takes a while to see it but its there. emoticon

I reset my goal board

Sunday, January 19, 2014

I reset my goal board, I didn't think it would make much of a difference to personalize it...but it did

Its great to see things that are all about me, all the accomplishments I have made since I got serious about this

    I set mine up for six months and review it daily. I use the past to help me set realistic goals for the future. It can be a powerful tool for reaching our goals
