    Great vision statement. I agree that many of us with weight issues know that we have to deal with our emotional issues as well. I know I do. emoticon emoticon

A morning to be proud of

Wednesday, April 09, 2014

This might be a little corny, but I am so proud of this.....LOL

I got out of the shower and after drying off I wrapped my towel around myself under my arms and tucked it in....then took notice how the towel actually meets and slightly over laps at the bottom. I am so proud of the small things. But that is a great step in my weight loss journey.

Being Proud of myself

Sunday, September 01, 2013

I have been logging in to Speakpeople on a consistent basis for the past 18 day. I know that might not be anything to some people but I am SO proud of myself. I am trying to do better with health issues for me, because if I don't don't I am not any good to help others. I want to be healthier and more active and I am on my way!!!

I have been tracking my food with the help of my phone which a wonderful tool.

    emoticon I struggle to being consistent too Weekends mostly and I almost always undo all my hard work I do Monday to Friday. Everyday I have been here I have gotten better and I have had so many NSV and my health right now is 75 % better than it was three months ago. I cant wait to see what three more months does.

Starting again........

Sunday, January 06, 2013

Well, I am back again to the thousandth time. I want to lose weight like I to do every year. I have been away from my sparkpage for a little while...but I have returned and I am surprised by the my numbers since I've last checked in. My weight isn't a bad as I thought it was going to be, don't get me wrong isn't not were I would like it to be. But get back on here and holding myself accountable.

Things I want to do to help me obtain a healthy life~
* Try to blog or journal
* Keep a food journal
* Drink at least 8 glasses of water daily
* Keep a positive attitude........ I CAN DO THIS!!!!!
* Move more if nothing else DANCE

Since today was my first day that I took the time to REALLY be on"sparkpeople" I am really proud of myself.

I tracked my food, water, veggie and fruit....I am slowly going to incorporate exercise even if it just the basics like sit ups, squats and some dumbbell work for my arms.

I CAN DO IT!!!!! I AM WORTH THE TIME AND EFFORT!!!!!!

OMG I slipped, BAD!!!

Sunday, July 20, 2008

Well, its been awhile since I have been on here and man I didn't like some of the things that happened to me. I really liked the progress I was making and that really took at nose dive. I didn't realize how helpful the visualization of seeing my weight on the tracker was and I was more accountable when I signed in every day to sparks. Since not being on here I have gained 10 pounds. Man in that depressing!!!

But the good news is I am trying it again and I am going to just start being more accountable by writing down what I eat, even if I wish I would not have ate it. That is the first step I need to do and then I need to add small goals. I need to drink more water and less coffee. I also need to start exercising. which means would have to get up earlier in the morning and I need my beauty sleep!!!

I have to remember I am doing this for me and to set an example for my children to live a healthy active life.

    Glad to see you've picked yourself up. I know how you feel as I've gained a lot back in the last year even though I keep trying. I'm just starting to deal with the emotional issues as well as the other things that contributed to the slide. But through it all, I keep getting back on and trying which I think you will find is the most important thing you can do for yourself.
