Geneen Roth on Oprah today.

Tuesday, July 13, 2010

It's been a long time since I've watched Oprah but I'm glad I caught her today. She was presenting Geneen's latest book. I was actually in tears a couple of times because of how close to home it hit.
During my months on SparkPeople I have continued to show up each day logging in for points, recording water intake, reading articles & checking on my friend feed. I'm still not eating right or exercising regularly, though. I know all of the tools that I need are right here but until I do the real work to change my thinking about food, my body, my life, I'm not going to be able to move forward.
For now though, as long as I keep showing up, I know I'm at least not moving backwards. I'm starting over at the beginnning and reworking the action steps & with the support of you all, I know I can do this.

    Hey, don't feel bad. Slowly, but surely you will get there in your on time and on your own terms.

    I joined in Feb, peeked at it in May and finally kept the nutrition tracker over June. Asked for some help and got some feedback on my nutrition tracker,signed up on some Team goals, read and commented on blogs like yours. Now am getting into it and thinking... hmmmm.. had this started in Feb, would have been at least 10 lbs lighter by now! But I wasn't ready then so it doesn't matter:)!

    Just take it in and soon it will take you in too!

    Best of luck!
