3 years and still fighting!!

Thursday, October 11, 2012

I just responded to a "HELP!" post someone posted because she is having a lot trouble sticking with it. I liked my response so I'm blogging it :)

I just celebrated my 3rd anniversary on Spark and guess what? I'm 1 1/2 lbs lighter than when I started. LOL! I lost a lot of weight, got depressed (unbeknownst to me I had a nerve being pinched in my neck and fibromyalgia and that's what got me depressed I think) and gained all I had before plus 20 and now I'm down 21 1/2 from there. So... yes, life sucks sometimes. But the race isn't won by those who sprint and collapse from exhaustion. It is won by those who do a little bit each day to improve their life and just keep adding from there. I rarely eat chips anymore and I used to eat them ALL THE TIME even for dinner!! I rarely drink pop and I used to be addicted (I'm talk 2 2-liters worth a day, at least!) so yeah, just keep going a little by little and EVENTUALLY you WILL get there :)

When in doubt, make a fool of yourself. There is a microscopically thin line between being brilliantly creative and acting like the most gigantic idiot on earth. So, what the hell, leap. - Cynthia Heimel

    You're right, it's not a sprint. One day at a time I always say.

  You've got a great point. Those are very motivating words for everyone. It's a lifestyle change not a sprint to the finish!

    Thank you for your words of encouragement - it can be easy to lose focus and become dis-spirited at times. I realised, when I read your blog, that we are all here for a life change, not a week change or a special-event change. Thank you for being there with me on my journey! And positive energy back at you for your continued journey!
