Taking care of myself

Wednesday, January 09, 2013

It has a snow ball effect. Taking care of myself - - starting small and continuing to build my skills is making a huge difference in my life. It is true that nothing changes until you do!

Afternoon with the girls

Monday, January 07, 2013

Went to lunch at a friend's house and then spent the rest of the afternoon sitting and talking with friends....and everywhere. Before lunch, lunch, after lunch. I ate. When I logged ALL that food, I had eaten almost 3x what I should have eaten, especially when I got home and DH had cooked his favorite breakfast for dinner. However, I counted it up to "This REALLY doesn't happen all the time" and sometimes I don't have as much control as I want. And this is life. I will be faced with these situations as long as I live and as long as I can do it 75% of the time, I think I will be OK. This will be my life. SP is not a diet for me. So when I got up Sunday, I didn't go all out either way. I did my walking, planned my meals, and it felt good. Thank you SparkPeople!

    Wonderful Blog!
I also know this is going to be our year!
I started in Feb of 2012 and lost 50 lbs.
I've learned so much. Here at this site and all the books I've read.
I feel confident that I can do this.
I'm proud to have you along for the ride.
We can do this!

I am saying my intentions rather than writing my resolutions. I have made small changes and remember that sometimes it is two steps forward and one step back. Sometimes it is four steps forward and sometimes it is standing still. And yes, there have been days when I go backwards but I am kinder to myself and more forgiving. Instead of planning to start tomorrow, I am taking small actions today.

2013 is a wonderful year for me! emoticon

So looking forward to the new year. I have made progress and I am excited to start the new year with SP in January and watch my points and minutes accumulate - - and the pounds lost!
