Getting back on the "horse" is soooo much harder than falling off..

Monday, March 21, 2011

Well, I am REALLY trying to get my butt back on track and get re-started on my Spark journey. With my severely increased back pain, high sugar levels and decreased energy levels this hill seems so much steeper even than last summer/fall. I realize that if I can get myself back in the saddle I'll TRULY enjoy the ride and more importantly that all the things holding me back will HOPEFULLY feel/get easier as I go along. My frustration just really has a way of holding me back and I HAVE to conquer that. I have to remind myself every second of every minute of every day that this journey is an important one and that *I'm* worth the effort and outcome. I just need to hang on to hope and have faith in myself and my ability to make the changes necessary to be the person I'm destined to be. It's never to late, I'm never to old or tired and now is the time to stop the excuses, grind through the pain and frustration and JUST DO IT!!! :-D

    You can do it! I have a lot of the same feelings you do....and it is harder this time around, so that is why we need to make this the LAST time around and just be healthy and live our new healthy fit lives! I live in Ohio too, near Toledo. I don't have diabetes but have a very strong family history for it and would live to prevent myself from developing it by losing this excess weight. Would love to have a cheerleader to help cheer me on! I am new to this site and still learning my way around. Hang in there - I am cheering you on too! emoticon

    Sorry GLC2009...hope the edit to add the "horse" hints at the proverbial meaning... Thanks to all for the encouragement. Every encouraging word from another helps me to believe it even more myself!

    The journey is truely a battle but now is the time, if you remember that it is harder to start this time than the last time then you must know that if you don't do it this time it will be even harder next time. Good luck and keep trying you will find the frustrations, pain, excuses and butt will get smaller as your accomplishments get bigger.
