Happiness is Catching the Second Wind of Motivation

Friday, April 03, 2009

I've just passed my 5.5 month anniversary since starting this lifestyle change. Now 31 pounds down with 19 to go, I have found a new resolve after a period of lethargy, plateaus, and well, just plain ole inertia. I've now made friends with my elliptical and am feeling that I will make good progress in getting these last 19 pounds off my bones. They are weighing me down, and I will fly when they are off. (not literally though- smiling)

I Feel a New Resolve Pushing Me to the Finish Line

Thursday, April 02, 2009

I've passed to a higher level of dedication in this lifestyle change of healthier eating and more exercise. My brief period of discouragement passed and I've really felt a new resolve take hold.

    It's the greatest thing when your focus zeroes in on what it is that you really want and you move in the direction you need to accomplish what it is that you set out to do.

I too have been like this for some time. If something or someone attempts to redirect my focus...they're OUTTA HERE!

Keep up the good work Jesse!

I Need to Learn To Use This Website Better

Wednesday, April 01, 2009

Although Sparkpeople has been a great asset in my life, I feel that I can be using it better. I seem to have fallen into a pattern of just using tools certain ways and not delving deeper to learn more about the site. In April, I plan to do that.

    I have found so much in the 4 short months I've been active. It has sharpened my focus beyond what I ever thought and has committed me to a healthy lifestyle. It really is working!

Making these Next Three Months Memorable

Tuesday, March 31, 2009

I've got 19 lbs to go and I want to make this next three months very dynamic in getting me to that goal. Not that I can shed all of it during this time, but I want to get a good chunk of it done by the end of June. Thank you to all my Sparkfriends who've been a great support system.

    Wow it just hit me when I read this that there are only have 3 more months until June. I have to make these 3 months count as well. I missed my 15 pound goal by 4 little pounds. I know I will lose that this month but I still want to be at my June goal weight or as close to it as possible. So I am going to make this count more so than the last 3 months. Good luck and I know you will do it.

Making Friends with My Exercise Equipment

Monday, March 30, 2009

Okay, the time has come to kick this last 19 lbs. to the curb with Sparkpeople. I know I can do it, and no time like the present. Welcome Springtime, and here's to that extra push I've felt coming for awhile. No more laziness!
