Today I am thinking that I'm afraid that SP may become an obsession for me. My "addictive" personality has a tendency to latch on to anything that feels this good.
I don't want SP to be just a flash-in-the-pan, here today and gone tomorrow.
I see the changes in myself and feel successful, and I want that to continue. But I have to be careful about spending too much time in front of the PC browsing SP stuff!
So moderation is the key. Moderation has never been easy for me, in ANY area of my life.
Guess I sound a little scattered, huh? Maybe just writing down my thoughts will help me to get a grip on what's happening inside my head.

    I feel like I spend way too much time on SP too! I am in the process of setting goals on how I want to spend my time on SP so that I get the motivation I need but not end up aimlessly wandering. I think it is great to type things out to get your mind more organized!

The same two pounds

Friday, February 03, 2012

Today I ran across an old Weight Watchers Lifetime (lol) Membership card.

Card shows that my weight in January 2006 ranged between 152.6 and 150.4.

Today I weigh about 150.

Good grief, I have been volleying the same 2 pounds for 6 YEARS??? (Not counting the time last year when I soared to my all-time high of 162.)

Sparkies give me so much inspiration! For the first time in a VERY long while I feel confident about tackling my challenges.

I have always believed I can do anything I put my mind to do, why should weight control and healthy living be any different? Like in Yoga, I have to "see myself in the position, and go there".

Today, just for today, I WILL.

Tomorrow is another day.

PS. I threw the Weight Watchers card away. SparkPeople and SparkLive ROCKS!
