I will NOT pass this way again!

Thursday, March 19, 2009

I was answering a comment left on my page when I really liked the sentence that popped into my head.

This is the 2nd time I am passing this weight - the first time was on the way up!

I will NOT pass this way again!

Hugs y'all!!

    I've said that many times before. Usually knew I was lying even as I said it. Though sometimes I was REALLY DETERMINED that THIS TIME would be different, and I said it as a vow.

And then without fail, each and every time I was disappointed in myself and disgusted with myself for breaking my goals yet again, and it seemed pointless and hopeless, as I gained the weight back. In self disgust I stopped trying, and ballooned up to 315lbs. Historically I always kept trying; but historically I also paid an increasingly HEAVIER price in regaining more than I'd lost to creat a new all-time high, plus losing my self respect.

Enter SparksPeople. THIS TIME it really IS different, because I'm losing it slowly enough to build in the lifeskills along the way, yep those "Lifestyle Changes", via the self-educational tools provided by SparksPeople. And when it goes more slowly than other times, because I'm peeling layers of the emotional onion, or because I'm building muscle, that's okay because those are ALSO necessary life skills to keep it off. I'M DOING IT RIGHT THIS TIME AND I WON'T BE BACK.
