Im sitting here looking over spark pages and looking at mine. i have made alot of changes in my life in the last couple of months. the only thing bothering me right now is the fact that when i look at my goals i want to see myself there, i want to feel amazing when i look at myself. i see the accomplishments of so many people here and wonder why i dont feel the accomplishment in myself. I can see some differences some days when i look into the mirror and then the very next time i pick out my flaws...when will the time come when i look at myself as i look at so many people here and think WOW what a huge motivation??? I have tried to find a couple of close people to help me stay focused and be proud like i have seen so many others here do. I have looked for buddies I have added freinds I go over and over my teams to see just where I might fit in but I am still waiting for that one of two moments of the AH HA I can do this just like they are and be proud of me... instead of always just proud of them............

    Hi Sheila,
    Sorry you're having the blues. I couldn't help notice that you are also saying that you need more "me" time. Maybe that is where all the discouragement is coming from feeling overdone (so to speak) can make a person feel blue.

    Personally I think you are doing great, I see that since you started you lost about 50 or more pounds. THAT"S GREAT!!!. And not everyone can say they are married to their best friend, HOW WONDERFUL IS THAT!!!! Beautiful family!!!! I have looked at your page and admired you!

    Maybe it's some balance of time for busy-ness and quiet that is really missing.

    As far as what people write (accomplishments etc.) I purposely focus on the good stuff and tell the negative thoughts to "get lost". Sometimes I still struggle with negative talk to myself but as soon as I realize it I replace it with some kind and loving thoughts.

    Things will look up.... believe..... feel it..... imagine it!!

    YOU CAN DO IT... emoticon emoticon

    AWE SHEILA.... my dear friend...

    reading your blog... made me think I could have written the same blog...

    I know I am soooooo much healthier... but as of yet not as happy with what
    I see in the mirror... HOWEVER... I just came to the conclusion... I need to spend
    as much time re THINKING about my inner goals... not just my physical goal...

    and I gotta tell ya... I am feeling a bit better about the woman I am seeing in the
    mirror... I also think, knowing it is Spring, sure helps... getting out of the gloominess
    that winter can bring...

    remember my dear friend... I am here... OOOOOO and by the way... JUST LOVE your new decor....

    blessings allways
    hugs ~~ Deby

    I stumbled across your page just now. What attracted me were our similar weight loss goals (starting point and ending point). I can tell you that you SHOULD be proud of you!!

    Your weight loss ticker/tracker/whatever that thing is, is sitting at a point that I dream of as I'm huffing and puffing on a walk or contemplating a workout DVD early in the morning. You have already made it so far!!

    If you could lose those first 30 pounds emoticon , then you can lose the next 40! Now's the time where you dig in deep, keep your eyes on the horizon and push forward.

    You CAN do it!! emoticon
