So while I realize I just posted a blog less than 12 hrs ago, I had to stop and get these thoughts down that are on my mind!! (I do hope you'll read yesterday's blog as you might find it instrumental on your own journey with regard to the question I posed.
LESLIES537, a dear Sparkfriend, has inspired me to take the bull by the horns on my journey. She was accepted into the Master's Program very recently. I have watched her grow so much over the last year after suffering from a loss. She turned a negative situation into a positive in SO many ways! She was able to lose 40 lbs and looks absolutely fabulous!
I'm so very proud of her! Here's a link to Leslie's page if you are interested in reading more about this absolutely beautiful (inside & out) person:
After some chatting with her last night, and of course God, I started thinking...
This morning, I posed yesterday's SP blog question to some ladies on a private Facebook group I belong to. Then I did my Day 3 workout. Then, while on the phone with my Mom, I came up with goal for my weight. I would really like to reach my first goal of losing 54lbs by Thanksgiving. Now, yes, this may be pushing the envelope a bit. But I feel like I need a little bit of pressure to do this and put more effort into it.
Now if I don't make it by Thanksgiving, I won't beat myself up about it and consider myself a failure. I'm not giving up because there's so much I want to do in my life and I refuse to allow my weight to put limits on me! I AM WORTH THE EFFORT to eat right and exercise. I am worth the effort to drink my water and know when I've had enough to eat and when I'm eating for other reasons. I WILL DO THIS! I'm lovin' life and I'm not giving up!
Who's with me???
Let's take this journey one day at a time, one baby
at a time! WE WILL DO THIS!
