A New Phase of Life

Tuesday, July 29, 2008


Well, folks, didn't expect to be writing this kind of info, but it's happened again. I just finished an online college course and one of the points that stood out in my mind is "we are responsible for our failures and our successes -- for we create it all." I dwelled on that new bit of information and realized my life was not what I had hoped for. Only one person could really change it. ME! And so I did; I made the momentuous decision to start over again - alone! Was it the right choice? For me it was, for you it may not be. It takes a special person to make it alone. And I just figured I'd rather be unhappy and alone than unhappy and together. It's hard to open that new door if you haven't got the courage to close the old one.

Life is full of decisions and choices, and each one brings about different results. Life is full of "what if's" but I try not to dwell on those. Face the future with the decisions you have made, go on with the self-confidence that you made the right decision. If you don't say the good words to "yourself" who do you think IS going to say them? You will succeed; just believe in yourself.

I've completed three months on SP

Thursday, February 28, 2008

I've been on SP for 3 months now. Three months of ups and downs, but I feel that I've learned a lot, not just about food and how to eat, what to eat, and when to eat, but I've learned about myself as well.

I've found that it is much easier to stick with a plan and a new lifestyle when you are surrounded by friends and are getting constant feedback and support. I'm amazed each time one of you wonderful people choose to add me as a friend, or send me a "goodie" and it is such a warm fuzzy to get these benefits. I think they are helping me stay focused.

While I haven't lost lots of weight, I have gained a lot of knowledge, and for that I'm thankful. I believe, sincerely, that the next three months will show a marked improvement in my battle for weight loss and a big improvement also in my outlook on life.
