Defying Gravity

Wednesday, January 27, 2010

Today this is how I am feeling. This song says it. I am defying gravity just by being here, on this SP journey. Something has changed and I don't want to ever go back to the person I was before all of this started. I am going to trust my instincts, keep going and "defy" all the odds against me. I will NOT accept any limits, I can do this. Nothing and no one is bringing me down. I am here. I am doing this and that's that.

Something has changed within me
Something is not the same
I'm through with playing by the rules
Of someone else's game
Too late for second-guessing
Too late to go back to sleep
It's time to trust my instincts
Close my eyes: and leap!

It's time to try
Defying gravity
I think I'll try
Defying gravity
Kiss me goodbye
I am defying gravity
And you wont bring me down!

I'm through accepting limits
''cause someone says they're so
Some things I cannot change
But till I try, I'll never know!
Too long I've been afraid of
Losing love I guess I've lost
Well, if that's love
It comes at much too high a cost!

As of today I am down another 1.5 pounds. Gonna keep defying those odds, pushing forward and loving myself for me, instead of listening to the ideals of the world. I am finished with that. I am in this journey me. No turning back now.

    Nikki, when I came back to SparkPeople last may I was taking alist of meds including antianxiety meds that I hated because of the weight gain they caused AND the feeling of lethargy. Those were the first meds I was able to come off of because I was eating right AND exercising!!!! I don't need them anymore and I will bet you are experiencing the same thing I did!!! How exciting!!!!
