December 28th, 2011
2 year anniversary with SparkPeople.
As I sit here this morning thinking about the last two years with SparkPeople, I canít help but smile.
Iíve taken my life back
Iíve made some great friends
Iíve learned A LOT along the way.
Iíve handled myself very well most of the time and Iíve failed on more than one occasion as well. Iíve let outside influences control my habits, from my fitness training regime to my emotional eating.(There will be a DailySpark blog about this in February) This is called a journey for a reason, right? A journey will have ups and downs, turns, curves, changes, etc. I recognize all of this and welcome it with open arms.
I still have work to do, I know this to be true, and I will do the work, no question about that. I have gained a few extra pounds beyond my allowed 7 pound window, and I will lose that, SOONER than later! Iíve always said I wasnít after a given number for my weight loss goal, more of a range. Iím outside that range now, MY FAULT! I mentioned outside influences, training regime and emotional eating, well, all these affected me in the last 4 months of the year. I have all those emotions under control now and Iím working on locking everything back down to where I know it needs to be.
You can count on me to MAKE IT HAPPEN!
Chris Downie I know youíre way too busy to read these blogs, but I personally want to THANK YOU for changing my life. I mean, the decision was and is MINE, I own that. (#78 Ė weight loss struggles happens between the ears, right?) Without SparkPeople I would still be a fat, miserable, unhappy husband and father. THANK YOU Sir for making a difference. Thank you for making YOUR dent in the universe, because your dent is changing lives, every day!
