    Hi, Susan, No magic switch here, either. I'm remembering some of the good habits that helped me when I started SP that I have let go of lately. And gradually, I am putting those things back into practice. S l o w l y...
Love you, Mom

    Great streak, Susan! Keep coming through your struggles with growth. When I emotionally eat out of control, itís usually alongside the TV or computer screen. Iím thinking I may have to eat without any distractions at the kitchen or dining room table and try my best to make the sofa, bed, and easy chair off limits for food.

Keep the champion mentality as a motivator. Hug, hug -- Evelyn

    I loved watching this. You made me feel like there are other real people out there trying to do the same thing Ive been trying. It just takes a day at a time.

I felt the same thing come January 1st. No puppies or rainbows or automatic amazing things happened either. But I'm going to stick with my plans and make this year MY year!!

Lets do this!!

Oh and THIRTY DAYS?! of exercising?!!? Really girl you are doing AMAZING!!

WOO you can do this!!

xoxoxo

Your new Spark Friend,

Kayla

    Puppies and rainbows. I love it. But the fact is, puppies poop everywhere, so even the most adorable of things have their issues. I think people who have come to view themselves as "big" sometimes get intimidated by the idea of really changing that because big becomes part of who they are, and what they are, to others in their life. I wish you to very best in continuing thru to April, and beyond.

    Susan,thank you for such wonderful sharing in your vlog!!!

Nope, no magic wand, and the puppies and rainbows are pretty elusive. But your streaking is proof that this WILL be "Susan's Championship Year"!!

I'm cheering for you.... as are so many others!!!

    I had plans for new year and started it out right on time and carrying out the plans, but I didn't feel like I did before when a new year started out. Then I realized I was not all excited because I had been accomplishing what I planned and I knew this time that I could do it and was going to do it, if i put forth the effort. I had faith that it could be done because I had done it before. The key was EFFORT.
I had to back up and work on the wiliness to put forth the effort. I can get the wiliness and things will fall in place. So, that is what I am asking my Higher Power to help me with. I have faith that it will happen even if I don't want it so quick, because I asked for it. LOL

So, good to hear from you. It sounds like you are working and that is all we can do. If we work at it and not lay down on the job little things will add up. It is going to do that for you. Yea!!!

Hugs, Judy

    Climbing back on the wagon after having fallen off is definitely so much harder than you'd think! "Why can't it be like it was the first time???" I think of it as the "honeymoon phase." The first time everything is "wine and roses" and you're excited and it usually just seems to flow! But once you have the first "quarrel" with yourself, then the hard work begins!

Good for you for seeing that and not giving up totally!

HUGS!

    When people first started to notice my weight loss, they would ask what I was doing and I'd start telling them about Spark People. I'd stop when I'd see their eyes glaze over. Really. They didn't want to hear about it. Now that I'm still losing weight and working out, they still want to know but now I tell them I have a second job. Really? Yeah, it's called taking care of ME. As much effort as it takes, and it IS hard work, to go on to SP, to track food, to figure out what you're going to eat, to shop, to cook, to plan fitness, to schedule fitness, it is like a second job. It is one I am very thankful for. I'm getting paid in compliments, NSV's, and better health!

I always try to plan something to do with my hands while I'm watching tv. I like to knit, and I just picked up some pretty yarn to make Christmas hats for next year. I know lol but if I don't get started now, they'll never get done AND it keeps my hands busy!! Can't eat and knit at the same time!!

    You had some requests for a vlog?! This makes me happy, because it shows I am clearly not the only one on Spark People with GREAT taste, booyah!! emoticon emoticon

Oh m gosh, the little angel voice saying "Gwandma" gave me the emoticon 's and emoticon 's I needed to start this miserable day. ;)

So amazing on the 29 day streak!! It makes sense with all those fitness minutes you are racking up, and I am so proud of you! emoticon

You know I am right there with you on the "magic" of January 1st... there was no puppies or rainbows on my doorstep on January 1st, and you know I've been racking up those AWFUL cupcake stickers, but I think now that the shock & awe of a magicless new year has worn off, we are ready to keep on going. I won't write you a novel like usual, since I "type" your ear off anyways, but you know I'm excited for your championship year, woohoo!! :D emoticon
