8/30/08 If I had one wish?

Saturday, August 30, 2008

I always wished to look like so and so or in my mind think I was just well always going to be Fat.But than one day I started and after days, weeks,months,years,I have become a person I wish to be.I am still me just more happy and free,I don't have to make a wish,I just need to do what I know to do eat right alot of Water, Fruits and Veggies and Exercise.Not much to ask of myself and to live now in the moment and stop wishing for the magic pill or magic day when all at once I'm thin,LOL thats funny but I always use to think someday I'd be thin and not have to do anything.Well I'm 45 years old and the magic is I'm still ABLE to exercise and eat right.I love SP cause everyone here knows just what I'm going through and we are all here for the same thing lose weight and get healthy,we are all in this together..good luck all..

  Hello Balinda, I have been reading your blogs, and it's something about the way you write that inspires me. I have read just about everything just trying to get my self worth back. You are so positive, and up beat and that for what it's worth makes me feel better about being me. I have noticed that your last entry was in September. Well I hope you read this, and come back. I have placed you as one of my friends, so I will be watching for you. Thanks, and God bless.

    Hi Balinda, One of my best friends in my 20's was a lady from Missouri. How easy-going she is.

I like your blog; it shows how smart you are.

Keep up the great work!

    What an awesome person you are, Balinda. You have discovered what so many people haven't - how to be the person you always wished you were. That is SO amazing! I'm so proud to know you and so happy I have the chance to get inspired by you every day! --Marsha

    There is an old saying: if wishes were horses, beggars would ride. I've recently realized I've spent way too much time wishing to lose weight, when I could have just been doing the work of it and have reached my goals years ago. I think I've spent way more energy "wishing" than "doing". For sure I've spent a ton of money "wishing" -- I've bought diet books, exercise dvds, exercise tapes, exercise music, exercise clothes, exercise equipment, exercise shoes, exercise socks, exercise trainers --- and all I needed was to make it my priority, my responsibility, my daily easy and so so hard.

    Awesome, Balinda, and so very true. So often we lose focus on what's really important or make excuses. GOOD FOR YOU for recognizing that you just "have to do it" and no one but you can do that for you!
You're doing great! And are an awesome inspiration and supporter to us all.
Thank you for being part of our team! emoticon emoticon emoticon
