a fresh start.

Sunday, August 28, 2011

Last week I gave up. I lost my job, now didn't have the money to go to my 50th high school reunion, and in general felt very sorry for myself. I ate two bags of cookies, and a quart of ice cream. I stopped visiting the Spark site because I was too embarressed, and I felt I had simply failed yet again. I have no real friends,and my kids live far away. I even considered suicide. Then the mail came. I had forgotten that I had ordered The Spark. I'm an avid reader so thought I should at least check it out. I started in the middle of the book, and read a few things that caused me to start at the beginning. I still need to work out my real goals. I see now why I wasn't getting anywhere with losing weight, but that's ok because now I will start over. I will read the whole book first this time. I will take it slow, and make small changes. I have my notebook, and Ive made my start. I need a friend this time around too. Wish me persistence.

    The more enlightened one becomes…the more liberated one become!

In STILLNESS & SILENCE one’s “true self is revealed,” as are the’ inner revelations that have the potential to transform one’s life in the best possible way.

If one freely and routinely commits to this “quiet time,” one gradually comes to comprehend the rhythms and cycles that affect all life. For those who consciously and consistently choose to live in harmony with these rhythms & cycles the friction created through opposition to them is gradually diminished and/or eliminated.

Life happens! One may not be empowered to change a negative circumstance but one is empowered to positively change one’s attitude towards it.

CHANGE IS THE’ ONE CONSTANT IN LIFE and why Abraham Lincoln uttered the phrase “This too shall pass.”

Peace, passion and purpose are the powerful gifts one gives one’s self.

Befriend yourself first and gradually true friends will appear. Don’t be hard on yourself…we human beings are flawed by design!!! We are diamonds in the rough and for every lesson learned, every hardship valiantly overcome, a facet of our WHOLE SELF becomes brilliantly realized!

You don’t need good luck, you need Good Light. I wish you abundant Light!

back on track

Been screwing up left and right. Gained back 3 of the poiunds I had lost. Well, last night I resolved to start over. I will start exercing today-something I have been avoiding. I will stop letting my eating get out of control at night. I will do this for me, and no one else. I will not be so hard on myself.

For the last two days I've been eating so badly. It's like I can't stop myself. I ate ice cream, chips, and at work didn't turn down a big piece of apple pie. I had lost 15 pounds, and now I've gained 3 of it back. I know I'm getting laid off my job soon, but I've known that for awhile. Why am I doing this to myself? emoticon

I am so discouraged. My weight hasn't moved in a week. I'm less than enthusiastic about exercising. Can't find my start button. I'm sticking to my diet just great. My clothes fit much better. I'm just so disgusted with myself right now. I even have a gym membership. A co worker suggested maybe it's because I'm so alone. No family or friends in this town. I'm no quitter tho, I will lose this weight.

It's been a struggle at times, but I'm actually losing weight. 14 pounds so far. It's a miracle because I've tried so often to lose weight and have never made it past 5 pounds unless I've used some sort of diet pills. My doctor wants me to cool it with a lot of the exercises until I've lost at least 20 pounds. I was walking and doing Zumba till I fell down my stairs. Sort of did my knee in for a bit. It's getting better all the time and I'm getting close to that 20 pound mark. I hate most veggies so I am absolutely amazed that I'm eating them. I really want to thank Spark People for showing me how it's done! I also want to thank all the great people who have helped me on my way. I've told everyone about this site and I think may be starting to believe me emoticon
