OMG! Did I Just Realize This!

Wednesday, March 07, 2012

There are days that I look at this as such a long journey that I will never see the end of. Something has change in the past month. Maybe it's that fact that I'm back on track or the Spark Live meetings I don't know but something is working.. emoticon.

When I started this journey I don't think I ever did it for the "Right" reason. It was all about getting the weight off my husband who at that time was 650 pounds. Fitting into a dress for Ashley's wedding. If I was thin more people would Love me.

Ok get over yourself because your husbands weight loss is his journey you can only help him out along the way with love and support. Ashley's wedding came and went and my dress was just fine. If people don't love me at this weight then they are not worth anything.

So for all the "Right" reason now I'm on one amazing journey. Seeing each pound leave and celebrating each and everyone. The "Big" picture is always going to be big. There is nothing I can change about that but love each and every small step that will get me the end of the "Big" journey.

    Amazingly insightful! Yes. We all need to check our motivations for why we want to achieve our goals because that is intricately linked to the sustainability of the new lifestyle.

I applaud you for confronting this issue with meaningful introspection and bravely sharing it publicly.

Keep up the good work!
