February 18th, 2013, Monday, 42 days until reaching 1st goal post! Week 8!

Week 8 feeling Great! Today I realized I am happy with my size! It's not about what the scale says or doesn't say, it is that I am healthy, happy and I am still on this earth!!

It is about being in the moment, the day, the gift of health and life is a wonderful gift and I am going to breath in the fresh air of today and live,Love and Laugh! I am free to be me!! I will continue moving and a shaking and keeping tabs on what I eat, staying accountable is working for me it is keeping me aware of where I have been and keeps me focused on where I am going!!

I have been waiting for the scale to drop me down a whole size, or 5 lbs in a week this is NOT realistic for me. I realized that a pound, 1 little pound being gone is GREAT! Even if it is NOT what I want, it IS what I NEED, it is NOT how fast I can drop the weight it's how much I can learn as I am on this crazy journey!!

So my friends I will Keep on Keeping on until I get to where I need to be, just when I need to get there, not a moment sooner!! So today when I weigh in I am trying a new tactic! (see below) All smiles and Thank you again for peeking in on my blog and sharing the moments of insight with me!!

PS: this blogging stuff is also making me a better speller no errors this time!

February 21st, 2013, Thursday, 39 days until reaching 1st goal post!Week 8!

I GOT MY DAY SHIFT POSITION!!!! I get to go from vampiress to sleeping at night!! IT has been so many years since I have lived in the light!! I am so looking forward to waking up in the morning instead of trying to fall a sleep in the morning!!!

I'm not there yet but my company said I smoked the competition and I got the job!! Soon as they find a replacement within 2-3 weeks I will be a DAYSHIFTER!! Then rise and shine!! The sound of an alarm clock!! The smell of freshly brewed coffee!! The normalcy of waking at the same time!!

I will be able to go for a walk/run soon as I wipe the sleep out of my eyes!! Energized, ready to welcome the day, I will be able to eat normal meals!! This actually may be a life changing moment!! Thank God and all those who surround me with health wealth and happiness!!

Yes I am excited but won't be doing the happy dance until I'm sipping coffee on my way out the door in the morning! I got my spark on now!! =O)

So as you can see my day is going well - How is yours going?

Your body is keeping and accurate journal regardless of what you write down.

    Love it! I may just give that method of weighing myself a shot next Monday! emoticon

    Seriously, what you are saying really hit home. If we base our happiness only on what the scale says, or even worse, if we wait to feel truly happy only when we've reached goal weight, then we are throwing away a lot of months and years of our lives. I am NOT going to do that this time! And honestly, some of my happiest moments since starting the SP journey have been walking in the countryside along the canal, looking at the birds floating on the water, horses in the fields, talking to other walkers along the way, etc. It's given me time to reflect and just enjoy being alive. Isn't that what it's all about in the end?

    Thanks my friend for reminding me once again what is important! You rock!
