REASONS, MOTIVATION, AND OUTCOME

Sunday, October 07, 2012

REASON I wanted to lose weight because I was miserable and kept outgrowing clothes. I stopped exercising three years ago and now that I am more active in my daily life I can't believe how weak I am. I want to exercise to be stronger in order to do all sorts of things that I can't do now without hurting myself. I want to feel energized not sluggish.

MOTIVATION In the past I wanted to be slim and fit to appeal to the opposite sex and to be treated better by others. Today I want to be slim and fit because I am a worthwhile person who deserves to be taken care of, to feel good, to live a full life, to live longer, and to have the freedom to live the life I was designed for.

OUTCOME It's already becoming. Or maybe I should say that I am already becoming the new created me with a sparkle in my eye and a big smile on my face.

    Hi SharonSue, All those reasons are good. As long as you take care of yourself and treat yourself well, you'll have more to share with others. Have a great day! :)

Improvements since getting serious with SP

Tuesday, September 25, 2012

I wake up earlier and getting more of a routine. Am not struggling so much with the eliptical. Am more positive and action oreinted overall. Noticed my legs are toning. Getting more interested in taking care of me and enjoying life as it comes.

I'm starting to sleep more at night and eat less!

Been in 4 weeks and am afraid to weigh myself even though I have been eating healthy and eating less. Time to get on the scale tomorrow and see if that has changed. If not I know life is still good!

  Once you realize all of the benefits of taking care of yourself, the body takes care of you! If you're afraid of the scale or if it doesn't provide you with the results you're looking for or need, try the emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    What a great month you've had! I'm sure you'll be pleasantly surprised when you step on the scale. Even if you're not you're feeling better, sleeping better and have a lot of non-scale victories. Don't get discouraged as everyone loses at a different rate. Good luck the rest of the way!

    Congrats on all your non-scale victories! Remember you'll still have those, no matter what the scale says. And don't forget to take measurements, or pay attention to how your clothes are fitting.
