I've been down with a bug the last 3 days, but I'm feeling a lot better. I purchased SparkCoach back in November, but I haven't used it except for the 1st, maybe.....week? Now I am ready. I guess being sick has given me perspective. I went to the doctor yesterday (wanted to be sure it wasn't the flu) and got on the scale. 170.6 lbs. granted I had my shoes on, etc... , but that does not matter one bit. I weighed 170.6 lbs. I've been utterly, unmistakably, and completely out of control. Period. Said. I am worried. I am worried, because my brother has diabetes. My other brother has high blood pressure. My mom had rheumatoid arthritis. And, dad had a stroke at 53. I have blah, blah, blah. Excuses, excuses, excuses. Time to stop. This is my new beginning. I finally have a clear head, and believe me that's not easy to say when I've got a nose full. haha (okay, that wasn't funny)
So, I just got through with my SparkCoach for today. I walked Poppet around the block (wore me out because I'VE BEEN SICK!) But, I did it. Now for a nap.
I am so thankful for my Spark friends. It really is easier to do this with the support of all my friends.
So, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU.....
