just when i was losing it...

Thursday, November 12, 2009

my motivation, that is...i wake up this morning (on the wrong side of the bed, might i add) and log onto SP, and I'm the done girl of the day! this is exactly the wake up call i needed, friends. lately, i've just been feeling sort of blah when it comes to working out and eating what i should be eating...and i need to WAKE UP!!!!

so here i am, vowing that i am going to fight - i'm back in this, ladies. reading the little blurb in the dgotd email made me remember why i was doing this. am i doing it for myself, truly? absolutely. but, i have also found sooooooo much support and encouragement on sparkpeople, that i now feel i have a sort of obligation to my sparkfriends, and anyone who is out there trying to be a happier, healthier version of themselves...many times i have been spurred on by seeing the successes of a fellow sparkers, and i know that i could be that *spark* for someone else...and that is motivation in itself!

so thank you to all of my amazing sparkfriends and fellow donies! i couldn't have made it this far without all of you! thank you for letting me know that i'm worth this struggle...and for reminding me why i'm here!

    That's how i feel too. When i have a day when i'm like " is this all worth it?!" then i get a comment or an email how i'm an inspiration to someone else (me? really?! lol) but it makes it SO much more worth it! I am reclaiming my own life, and helping push someone else too? that's an awesome feeling! Keep up the great work!!! :)

    Isn't it amazing how fate, karma, whatever always comes back around when we need it most!

    Congrats! Your profile page sounds so much like mine! I would love to keep in contact with you so that we can encourage one another. How did you start training to run? I've never ran (well besides P.E. class) a day in my life! I'd love to do that for myself.
