It's been a good month....

Monday, January 28, 2013

I restarted SP on Jan 1....sort of with the same attitude and expectations I had several years ago. Meaning that I didn't really, deep down, have the confidence that I would stay with it. Just thinking that.....wait,...there was my problem...I was NOT thinking.
Another 'aha' moment. emoticon

I made the effort these past four weeks to not compromise myself. And I stuck with that attitude. I MADE myself do as much as was possible, considering some back problems the past two weeks. And I did stick to between 1100-1300 cal. every day.
That surprises me. Because after all these years my perception of self is changing in a positive direction. Who knew! emoticon

I need to give credit so many of you wonderful Sparkers who stop by my blogs and encourage me....thank you so very much.
Also I re-read a quote on my Sparkpage I put there several years ago regarding effort:
" Knowing is not enough, we must apply.
Willing is not enough, we must do."

Sometimes it takes a long time for some of us to learn....and believe me, that if I can type this message at my age, then it is NEVER!!! NEVER!!! NEVER!!! too late.

Don'tcha' just lovit!!! emoticon

I lost just over one pound last week...which averages to 1.75 pounds per week.
I am very happy with that. And I love the way I am eating. My cravings are gone,
I am sleeping better....and I carry myself with more self confidence.

Don'tcha' just lovit!!! emoticon

I just love INDYGIRLS Jan. 26 blog.
It goes as follows:

"My message to everyone is that you can do it at any time in your life at any age, even while disabled. Just don't give up. Time does not matter, screw ups do not matter, failures are not ends, they are speed bumps. There is no more wagon to fall off of, there is only the journey. Make small changes and tweaks that you can sustain for a lifetime. Adapt your eating plan to your lifestyle, not the other way around. Then you will see the changes come."

These words lift me up if I am feeling disappointed in myself....and her example always inspires me.
So dear friends...if you have got this far in reading my blog emoticon please
know I am so happy to be part of a community such as SP and hope the best for all of you.

    What a delightful and happy blog. Glad to hear that you are doing so well...congrats and keep going. Today I heard a quote from a young man to his younger wife about her health issues (lymphodema) He said "its easy to do whats right when things go right, but remember to do whats right when things go wrong."
So true. So we keep encouraging each other through the tough times and the good. The more good times there are, the better your chances of reaching your end goal.
