Running Towards My Dreams...

Sunday, December 27, 2009

I stepped on the scale around 3a.m. this morning and almost squealed with delight. However, it was not my normal weigh in time so I said I would weigh myself again around 6a.m. instead. I am so proud of myself... I weighed in at 292.5!!!

If I hadn't been persistent, I wouldn't have lost 5.5 this past week! I deviated on Christmas day with B&J's but I got right back on track yesterday. Realizing I'm not perfect, brushing myself off and getting back in the race...that's what this journey is all about. I WANT TO BE IN THE RACE! emoticon

Many years ago I had a dream. It started out as a nightmare as something was happening to my husband, then boyfriend. I ran away from the situation. I always remember this dream because it the grass was so green and so vivid as I ran behind a fancy country club lawn or something like that. I remember how free I felt as I ran. I've always wanted to try running because of that dream and how it left me feeling...Running is my newfound/oldfound passion.

So now I am running towards my dreams, with my Spark buddies by my side, I know that we can ALL do this! Follow your dreams... emoticon
