Some Funnies & Some Not So Funnies

Tuesday, February 19, 2013

Today is day 53 of my streak!

But I am really struggling to keep this streak going. The past couple of weeks have been hard...I need to figure out whats bugging me. But for now, here are some funnies and some "not so funnies". Enjoy!


I like that one because its so true. People get way too hung up on sizes....they are so determined to fit into a size 4 or 8 or whatever, that they don't even pay attention to how the clothes actually FIT. They are just too worried about the number on the tag.

Wear what fits, regardless of what the tag says. You'll look a lot better in something that fits correctly as opposed to stuffing yourself into something thats too tight.








Ok, this one is sad...sometimes I really do feel this way. I work every day on my self esteem, but some days are better than others. Fortunately, I am having less and less days where I feel like this;



I remind myself all the time that I shouldn't put myself down. We should all build ourselves UP! The world will see you as you see yourself;



























I've been having some "off days" but I'm hanging in there and not giving up. My goal for the month is to be my own Valentine, and I am still doing my best to love myself and to treat my body with respect!

    I have thoroughly enjoyed reading your blog and sincerely hope you will continue to do as well as you have been doing on this "streak". This streak could be the best one you've chosen. You have certainly inspired me.

I have been on the roller coaster of weight for many years. In fact, I have gained and lost weight so many times, I've lost count. I've been as small as a size 4 and as big as a 16, but nothing feels better than a baggy pair of pants. It means that what I'm doing is working! I may never wear a size 4 again, but it won't matter. It's how I feel about in my own skin. It's not the clothes I'm working to change, whether it's style or size, it's the body I'm putting into the clothes.

Keep up the great work! I appreciate your sense of humor. Don't be so hard on yourself when things don't seem to be going right. We all have our weaknesses. We all have our strengths. Lean on your strengths and stay strong!

Thanks for your blog.

    Very funny and I agree on the clothing size I see it all day long people who squeeze into way to small clothes just to say they can fit into a size 6 I'm with you wear what fits I cut out the size label's on my clothes

Thanks for sharing these funnies

  When you're struggling, look for opportunities and smile (you've done that here) and look for people to boost you up in support (that's US!!! your sparklers). Thanks for the blog.

    This was such an enjoyable read and I sure hope I can recall them later on ... Like, all of them. They can really come in handy. emoticon

Well, gal, I think you're doing one terrific job, yet I understand how sometimes we do struggle a bit, and especially with our self esteem. Still, seems to me you are are doing every thing right - like slowly but surely you are retraining your mind to love you for who you are. That would be a major undertaking for myself, but I see in you the long-term benefit from making it so. Definitely a goal that cannot happen over night for any of us, but you know that ... and you keep up with your training even during those times when you might feel like sitting it out.

Proud of you and proud to know you. You're fantastic!

    Thank you, once again, for an inspirational blog. I had a pretty rough patch a couple of weeks ago that lasted about 2 weeks! You just have to push through and do what you know to do even though you don't feel like it or don't think you are seeing the results you want. In fact, what finally helped me get past it was blogging about it and relying on the help of my Spark Friends! You are an amazing, beautiful woman, and you can do this!

    Cute pic (the girl looking down at her shadow reflecting a heart) That one stands out to me, because I've had a terrible couple weeks and became inconsistent nearly giving up. Your post reminded me to love myself and keep going. For that I thank you!

You are a continual inspiration to me. Please keep your spirits UP and work through the rough bumps! You've come a long way and I know you're touched a lot of spark followers.

YOU ARE A BEAUTIFUL PERSON!!!

    First of all Pixie, look at how far you've come, how strong you are since when you started last March, how flexible your body is, how you have resisted temptation so many times, what size clothes you use to wear and what size you're in now........

I tell you often what an inspiration you are to me and I really mean that; I'm sure others agree, you are

    It is good to have a sense of humor. Some of the pictures simply made me laugh and hope more for life and some of them are such parodies on the way we treat our bodies. I am attempting to believe that my body is the temple for the Spirit. I am hoping that I can convert to this belief before I remain an uncertain trash can.

Self esteem is very valuable. I like the girl looking at her shadow in the shape of a heart. It is sooo good to take good care of ourselves. I know you are working very hard. I know that you have accomplished a lot. I, myself, am trying to kick start my journey onto the right track again. Don't give up and I won't!!! You are winning the race bit by bit. Like that turtle flying!!! LOL.

Keep up the good work. You are such an encouragement by the hard working and driving principles that guide you. Your messages on my Spark page give me so much to think about. I know that you're motivating yourself as you are motivating us. So, God bless you and give you the opportunity to continue your wonder filled streak.

Lots of love and respect, Karen emoticon emoticon emoticon
