Yesterday my best friend from when I was 2, and throughout childhood, found my Spark video by accident and joined and called me an inspiration on Facebook. Today long-time SparkFriend sent me a goodie with a note praising me and telling me she's inspired. . . and I want to be worthy of the admiration. I've been struggling and working long hours. My message in the return goodie is a mini confession and sums it up pretty well, so I thought I'd post it as a blog:::
Thank you for the very sweet goodie. I needed it a bit. I'm refocusing on eating better, and more veggies, since when I got sick after Christmas, I have seriously slipped into unhealthy eating that I've been ignoring, along with more than 2 weeks of mostly no exercise. I hope I haven't disappointed you too much. I am staying here, shoes tied, back at the start line trying to remember how to warm up for the race- the weight loss race. And trying to remind myself that it's my race, my personal record, not anyone else's finish time, that matters.
Doing what needs to be done.
