When you motivate others to be healthy, you can't help being motivated too!
If it doesn't work, do something else.
No idea is too crazy.
- Jim Hightower
Sometimes what we need is just a little motivation to begin. I think really that beginning is the hardest part of this journey. For me it is in the thinking " what will I lose? " I mean I won't be able to eat that, or this, or wow what about all that. But really what do we lose??? The weight, the hate, the disgust. We GAIN so much more. Strength, relaxation, love, energy. So as I end this month and move forward to another i'm given yet another chance to change the bad in my world or in my mind and make it great.
I have a plan for November and it is to plan, move, and smile through the tears. It is time to put me first and the rest will follow or get out of the way.

Take perfection and throw it out the window. There's always something you can make better or do differently — strive to IMPROVE, not attain the impossible.
Remember you will not always win.
Some days, the most resourceful individual will taste defeat.
But there is, in this case, always tomorrow -
after you have done your best to achieve success today.
- Maxwell Maltz
Funny yesterday I was so upset with myself and my journey. This morning as i'm checking my email's all this comes at me. It was like someone upstairs was saying "don't give up on you" So i'm not going to. I will find my happy place in this journey. It may not be today or this week but I will succeed at this one day. I only can take this one step, meal, day at a time. It is up to me whether I succeed or fail.
I think i'm going to do just that.

Instead of thinking of your body as the enemy, think of it as your best friend.
Easier said most days than others. Today I feel like it is the enemy. Though I know I did great this week and moved more, I don't want to hear it is muscle. I have so far to go and as of yet i'm not getting anywhere with this weight loss thing. Call it what you will healthy lifestyle, diet, stress....it all adds up to the same thing in my world right now. Work and work and see no loss just gains and more gains. I try, lord knows I do, I eat right and I've bought the Spark activity counter. I even have walked two days at lunch this week along with the normal routine. Did it help??? Can't prove it by me by the scales. I know I'm not suppose to only use the scales so I measure each month also. The numbers changed here and there but ultimately the total stayed the same. So what does that mean? Means the fat just shifted. Nothing exciting about that. So hum what will I do about this? Work harder, eat less, scream? Mostly cry because hell I already can't fit into my clothes, so what is one more downer.
I'm sorry I don't want to bring any of you down. I'm just feeling at a loss right now and don't really know what to do about it. I could keep going, or I could quit. Really those are the options. So now I need to take time and decide what it is I want out of this journey. Because to be honest i'm not finding it and i'm just getting more and more upset with my body. I already don't like myself much and here it is just fighting me every step of the way.
I guess this is my answer. I have to not give up on myself.
