Much better :)

Sunday, January 31, 2010

Wow, resting and prayer really work. I feel a lot better also my grandson too, so today we will head out to the pasture to see the cows. (20 min walk).

There's not much else happening, so I'll be back tomorrow or Tuesday. You all have a blessed week and I'll see you lighter :)

Things happen....

Friday, January 29, 2010

It seems when I am ready to get going things happen emoticon
I was ready to start a walking program, because the rains had stopped, but I got sick with the stomach flu and had to stay near a restroom, this was for 3 days. Now that I am feeling better, my grandson is sick and I can't do what I wanted.
Oh well, tomorrow is a new day emoticon

    As long as you keep trying - that's all that matters.

It's not about being perfect and not all days are perfect - just keep at it emoticon

    Sorry to here things are keeping you from starting Like you want to. That has happened to me with my foot sometimes hurting and swelling up which kept me from going to the gym. So I used that time to do work out with dumb bells and starting light cardio when I was able to.

Have a blessed week Sparkfamily

    Hey sweetie - grab a notebook and write down your food and any thoughts you have any struggles. When you get online, you can post some of the stuff you wrote. I find it a huge thing to keep track of my food - don't stop tracking!!
take care - remember there are people out here thinking of you and walking this journey with you!

My reasons why...

Thursday, January 07, 2010

I started reading "THE SPARK" and the one thing that caught me right away was "why do I want to lose weight?' I've always had general reasons but nothing specific and now I can say for sure why.

1. I want my clothes to fit, I want wear a size 16.
2. I want Hot sex, and I'm being truthful
3. I want my diabetes to be in control. This goes along with these fears
a. I don't want to go blind
b. I don't want my limbs to be amputated.
c. I don't want to have a heart attack

The first chapter was called Focus and through that is how I came upon these specific reasons. Now I just need to break these down in to goals and plan .

    Well, I have been like you were, good reasons but not so specific. I am going to rethink these and be more specific. I like yours a lot, especially the hot sex, but would probably never have thought of it. Does your husband know? He might make that wish come true right now if you tell him!

    These are great reasons to become healthier. It seems like you are getting into your book already. That's great. I wish you all the best with your goals.

    Good for you! When I started to lose weight I wanted to :
1. Reach into my closet and pull out clothes that fit & I liked,
2. Play with my grandkids on the beach,
3. Drum roll - wear high heels.

I have lost 160 with these reasons. I still have about 70lbs to lose. I am working on new reasons, but I am committed to getting it off this year.

This question helped me "What is the cost of not getting it done?" I am not fully living the life I want and I could. Let me know if I can help.
