Lately I am having trouble motivating some people around me. I think this is because I am now in a holding pattern - this is what maintaining feels like today. It becomes more difficult to remember how it was to be trying to lose 90 pounds. Really, I lost 2 lbs per week, sometimes 1/10th lb per day. I wrote them all down and gradually lost 90 pounds forever. But I did it One Day At A Time.
I am now living like people I envied all my life - people who only had to worry about 2-3 lbs at any given time. Envy really isn't the right word - I truly never envied anyone - my mother brought me up to know that everyone has problems - I just don't know what word to use.
We all have different problems but they are all very real to each of us.
As I found My Spark, I have lost touch with my past weight problems. I have found mostly healthier alternatives in my living day to day. I am at peace with myself. I like who I see in the mirror. And I am forgiving of my occasional slips in my food choices - because life goes on.
I will continue to be here to try to help anyone asking for assistance.
SparkPeople really does work - Keep Coming Back. Work the Spark Program starting with Stage One.
Thank you everybody. I do so want everyone to reach their goal weight. If I can help to encourage you - I will be here for you! This works because we each help others!
