making strides

Monday, October 06, 2008

Today is a good day. Today i did something that i have never done. Even when i was athletic person and did alot of running in school and such i cant ever remember just going out and going for a jog. Today i did just that. I didnt go to far just around the block but i did it, and the first thing that came into my mind was that i was making strides. I know it wasnt a big one ,but a little stride is better then none at all. It wasnt the easiest to do and for a very small part of it i had to bring it to a brisk walk but most of the way i jogged. Was i disappointed in what i had done, no not at all. The reason why i am sharing this is because i want you to know that its not just the big strides that we make in this journey, or in life that count ,but the little strides are just as important to take as well as they help build up confidence and strength to reach our goals and to be able to make those big strides. So in closing i want to say to those who will read this blog, make every step count even the steps that may seem small because they will lead you where you need to go. Thanks for listening.

Tonight as i sit here thinking about my weight lose journey this far i began to think about what helps us get to the goals we want to reach, what motivates us. For me motivations comes in many forms. When i first started my journey i initially started this to prolong my life as well as the quality of my life. wanting to simply just live was definatley a motitvation for me to lose the weight. Wanting to be there for all those special moments for my children was yet another motivation.Motivation means different things to different people. Wheather it be to feel better, look better, to fit into those size 2 jeans. For me one thing that motivated me was my best friend Kim. She was like my own personal cheering squad cheering me along the way. She always encouraged me and believed in me even if i didnt believe in myself. Motivation is such a postive thing in my life and for me it keeps me focused on my goals and makes those goals attanable. ince i have come to spark peoples the people i have met on my spark teams have definatley been an important motivation to keep moving and it helps me get that much closer to my goals. So if your reading this i say thank you because you have all impacted my life some how ,some more than others but you all help motivate me and for that i thank you.

No more hiding

Thursday, September 25, 2008

Tonight i was looking for some photos for a school project and i came across a picture of myself that was taken at the zoo in the summer of 2007. when i looked at the picture i thought to myself, wow was i big. I remember the day we went to the zoo i was snapping lots of photos so that we would have some lasting memories. Most of the pictures were of my kids and husband ,as i felt being as heavy as i was i looked horrid in photos. whenever i did pose in a picture i always tried to hide behind someone or something so it would help hide some of the extra me that i was carrying around. I know i wanted to have some memories of me on the trip but wouldnt have a pic ture taken unless half of me was behind a rock. Then i started thinking about other times like at the beach when my hubby wanted a photo of me and i said he could take one as long as i was in the water to again hide some of me. Now in this short time i have learned to not hide from the camera . I love to smile and now i make sure to get pictures of me . I want lots of pictures of the transformation and as i go along this journey to the new me. I have also decided that once i reach my goal i will go have my picture taken professionally to show off "THE NEW ME", and when that day comes there will be no more hiding.
