Second Day Strong
Wednesday, December 05, 2012
I became a Spark member over a year ago. My doctor gave me the web address and told me it was a good place to try. I rarely logged on and tracked my food and exercise even less. Since then, my attitude has changed a lot. I am now very committed to making the changes in my life that I need.
There was a little whispering in my head: "What about all those dreams you had?" It was a very small voice and very hard to hear. For about 5 years I just gave up. I was tired. Now, slowly, I am beginning to understand that without goals, without dreams, I was very sad---laughing on the outside to cover up what I was really feeling.
I am excited to start again. I have logged my food on different programs and I know it makes me very accountable---or at least I tell myself "Hey, I've got to log that if I put it in my mouth!" The hardest part of logging food is admitting to myself that I've been eating a lot more than I thought I was. My excuse was: it's my thyroid. Well, time to change my tune!
You cannot escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today. ---Abraham Lincoln
