FINDING MYSELF AGAIN

Thursday, June 28, 2012

Hello Spark People:

This is Eshara43 aka Susan reporting in with a new blog

I wanted to let you all know how I am doing these days because to me if I keep myself busy and not think about eating all the time I know I can lose the weight I have to lose because I want to see myself lose at least 75 lbs before October. I have decided to start a new schedule starting on July 2.

I want to start eating 3 meals a day, exercising 5 times a week and doing Zumba 7 days a week. I also want to be able to go for my walks again because I enjoyed them alot. I got to0 hear all kinds of sound along the way. Like the blue jays and robins singing high in the trees and watching the deer grazing in the meadows. Seeing bald eagers circling over head looking for field mice to eat. I want to be able to increase the amount of steps I was getting to 10000 per day.

I am the type of person who doesn't let any one or anything get me down. My boy friend always tells me that I should just stay home and relax but thats not me. I want to go places and see things my way. The doctor also tells me to stop walking but I am not going to listen to him because he thinks that walking is hurting me knees but it is not because when I was walking I knew how much pressure was on my knees and how far I could go before stopping and taking a break., I was walking for 30 minutes and stopping for 10 minutes to catch my breath and letting my knee rest.

I usew to be able to walk 10 miles each day but that was when I was only sitting at 135 lbs. I weigh in at 228.4 lbs now and that is great for me because I am keeping the weight I have lost off. I wish I could go for a walk and not come back until it turns dusk but my boyfriend will come looking for me if I did that.

I also wanted to let you all know that my book titled Love of Life & Nature is available on amazon.com, amazon.ca, createspace.com createspace.com estore. Online retailers and bookstores as well as kindle. I hope to be able to see it sell soon. Its about poetry and the way I see life and nature.

I someday hope to be able to say that I am a success and that I can maintain a healthy weight again and to be able to walk with pride and hold my head high. I know I have your support and motivation behind me so I know I will succeed in everything I do from now on. So wish me luck and I will keep you posted as I go through this new journey.

    sure, find something that inspires you and write down you ideas. the first thing you should do is think about the title you want then sit someplace quiet that is away from noise and distractions. i wrote my first poem when i went back to school. if there is something you want to do then write about it.

for example. you joined spark people to lose weight right...then write about your journey in finding the true you and what you want to have when you reach the end of your jouney

All your plans sound very positive and I bet you can do it!!! Heck with the bf.. what does he know anyway, and so what if you stay out till dusk, does he need the walk too? (if he comes looking for you?)
Yeah You!!! emoticon
