Well, here I go with excuses again. I'm depressed, someone died, waiting on someone else in the family to die, this one had surgery, this little one might need surgery, etc, etc, etc. I could probably go on forever. BUT, I WON'T! I am not going to let this continue. Life is too short for me to allow this to rule me. I need to get a grip. I need to start following my SPARK food plan and sub if I don't have the stuff on hand. I need to get moving! I will STOP making excuses for every time I need to exercise. I will begin to cook more at home.

    Sorry for your loss. That is a difficult time.

    You can do this! You recognize your excuses and you have a goal in mind

    Good luck on your journey. Keep this attitude and you will be where you want to be in no time.

    Keep working and keep blogging.

    You CAN do this! I too love excuses, but they don't get me anywhere. We make our own destiny with things like this and you can do it! Love you! HUGS!

    Way to go! I know first-hand about making excuses and not getting where I want to be. I fell prey to depression during the late fall and winter of 2010 and spent most of 2011 beating back that 15lb weight gain. Sometimes, I think I'm a queen excuse maker. However, we are worth the effort of getting busy. I read 1 Corinthians 6 today and a devotional on it at It really put somethings in perspective for me today.

    Here's the link:

    I subscribe to the devotional newsletter. It comes Mon-Fri. and I really do get a lot from it.

    Be blessed!

    Way to go Lady51. So sorry about your aunt. It's hard to lose people we love. My brother died almost 30 years ago and my dad passed 13 years ago and sometimes it feels like it just happened. Keep thinking about the good times you and your aunt shared. She'd be encouraging you to stick with the weight loss I'm sure. Don't guilt yourself too much either. We all have situations that impact our lives negatively and we just have to wait them out. Say it with me - "Today is a fresh start for me". You're gonna be okay. Have a great day.

    Your friend,
    Sharon R,
