Creating our own problems.


Saturday, May 29, 2010

2006 at the Brussels airport waiting for our flight to Spain, I bought my first Good Housekeeping magazine. Little did I know that it would lead me to find The Spark. So one could say that that was the first step.
Beginning of this year I read an article that mentioned The Spark, and when I looked it up, I joined at once. Second step.
Then I got this mail about the scrap book and a different way of staying motivated and I thought that was a fantastic idea and that I should like to try it.
So I did. Third step.
And here comes the problem. emoticon It works. I am loosing weight in small steps which is OK for me and I would like to say : hey, girl, well done, I am proud of myself.... but I don't dare.
Do you remember the book (or the movie ) The Good Earth? Whenever something good in these peoples lives happened they would look up and say : the rice is bad! , so as not to make the Gods angry or jealous. Hence my dilemma.
Am I allowed to say that I am proud of myself and have a big 48 teeth grin on my face, or do I have to add at once : but it won't last !!! just to be on the safe side?
My Mom used to say : if you do not have any problems, you make them yourself. (sigh) I am afraid she was right.
Well, I think I just say : I AM proud of myself! and then knock on wood real fast. emoticon

    You should be proud of yourself but I know what you're talking about. I have the same superstitions. :)
Slow is the way to go. After all we've tried fast before and that sure didn't work for me.
Congratulations on your success so far & keep up the good work.

    I think it's absolutely ok to be proud of yourself! Even if circumstances change or something goes wrong, you can still feel proud of that one moment in time. I guess I see live as an extended marathon - I make it to a checkpoint and take pride in my accomplishments up to that point. That way, even if I get called away from the race to do something else, I can still look back and see a positive point. That always helps me get back on the track, so to speak!
