I've been away for a long time.

Saturday, January 05, 2013

I let other life events take priority in my life. NO! I chose to let other life events take priority. Excuses make me feel better. It's easy to find excuses not to eat right or exercise.
Choices make me accountable. I am overweight because of the unhealthy choices I have made in the past. I have even made goal setting less strict. I would say "I don't expect to get down to 130 lbs again, but I'd be happy at 140. Why? Why not set my goal at 130 lbs which is healthy for a woman 5'3" tall? FEAR! It seems like an impossible dream!

Yet...I have read posts and blogs of SP members who have achieved their dream! I have read their struggles & milestones and felt so great for them when they reached small goals and huge goals. They inspire me! Their healthy choices gave them healthy consequences.

I'm back on SP and my main focus is on healthy choices. One choice at a time.
140 is still a goal. It's a goal to hit on my way to 130!!!

    I fell off the wagon for about two years! This was after I had done that which I thought would be impossible--lost over 50 lbs and felt great. This time, I just went ahead and let SP set my goal because I know that if I get to that goal I'll be in a better place to make up my mind on where I go next.

I DO hate trying to fit in the exercise each day, yet if I'm sore and tired, I still find it hard to take a day off. After this first week and a half, I'm already feeling better...even better than I did sitting in my recliner with a box of pralines emoticon And, they were pretty good pralines!

    emoticon Spark Friend-I did the same thing that you did. I got out of the loop and just got back into my "Spark" world. I went to a Spark Friends site who started Sparking about the same time I did last year. She stuck with the program, lost weight and looks awesome. I am like you my goal is 130 and this is the year I have to do it. Take care and Spark On! emoticon emoticon
