Today my Sparkcoach challenge was to record my motivation for wanting to lose weight and get healthier. Well, during this summer break, I was trying to have fun with my kids and we went to ride a roller coaster. I was terrified that the seatbelt and restraints would not fit. Well, I had lost just enough weight that I was able to fasten the seatbelt, but only with it extended all the way out and I felt like a marshmallow smooshed onto that seat. I know if I had not already lost 20 pounds, I could not have ridden that day and my goal is to go back and ride without discomfort. I love being active and I love my kids so I want to be the healthiest I can be to enjoy my kids and before too many years are past, my grandkids.

During the summer I cannot complain about not having enough time for exercise and cooking. I am off all day and can do what I make a priority. I will make taking care of myself a priority!

Feeling the need for some real change

Tuesday, June 18, 2013

Today I woke up with a real sense of determination to do whatever it takes to change my life for the better. I do not feel like I am being all that I can be or being a good role model for my three beautiful daughters. I feel like I can do better for myself and my family so starting today, I will make food choices based on what will be in our best interest rather than what is fastest or cheapest. Also, I will stop letting my weight stop me from getting the activity that my body needs to perform better. emoticon

Well, I am back again. It's only been forever since I have been here and I am returning with the support of my parents. I have quite a bit of work to do since I have about 130# to lose. I am trying to eat much better because I am trying to hold off gallbladder surgery.

I have been pretty good today and my gallbladder isn't hurting too bad.

Not a good girl today

Thursday, December 01, 2011

Just when I am feeling in control, along comes lunchtime at work. I ordered my salad and ate it and fruit but there sat a huge plate of nut covered fudge brownies. I know I should not have eaten one, but everyone was. Children, other teachers were enjoying them and my willpower broke.

I know that this does not make me a bad person or derail all that I have accomplished. Instead of quitting and giving up on myself, I will adjust my calories, add a little extra exercise, and most of all, forgive myself and move on.

    Oh my gosh! I so understand the difficulties that come with work place sabotage. Sometimes, especially near holidays and birthdays all kinds of neat treats show up at work.
Just be honest and track everything- even if it is just a small portion.
You have a good attitude about your choices, keep it up!

Good Luck!

    Don't be too hard on yourself. Tomorrow is a new day with new opportunities. Take your journey one day at a time, one step at a time. You have a positive attitude, and a plan to move on. Way to go!

    Good for you!! You have just jumped over into a new space, learned to love yourself, to forgive yourself and to move on. Hurrah, you deserve a medal for today but I guess just a SP goodie will have to do, ;)
