What Are We Waiting For?

Thursday, March 07, 2013

I got this picture in an email yesterday, and as I pondered the dog's situation, I began to I like this? Do I sit for long periods of time just waiting for something to happen? Is my happiness dependent on others?

At one time, the answer to all those questions would have been a resounding YES! But that's not me anymore. Through SparkPeople, I have found that I am the master of my own life - as long as God is beside me, I can design my own destiny. I am in control of my own happiness.

Getting up and moving can be as simple as walking. I can do that without any special equipment. Just tie on my 'tennies' and start moving my legs. Taking control of my eating, and starting on my 'new way of life' will lead to great happiness as I see the pounds melting away and my health improving.

Thank you SparkPeople for opening my eyes to this simple truth. I sat around enough years waiting for that elusive dream that would never happen. Thank you for expanding my 'little world' to see the limitless possibilities set before me. Thank you for giving me the solution to my 'dream come true'.

I can never thank you enough, but by losing weight and getting healthy, I hope to encourage others to follow down this path of self-enlightenment to reach their goals and dreams.

    Love the blog and the dog! Too precious! Yes, I kept waiting for the WW program to work for me, but it didn't until I came over here at SP ... we each must find our way on this lifestyle.

    Hi Ramona, I love your blog and what you said was also true of myself. In a way I was waiting for the magic pill or something not real that was going to help me lose weight the easy way with no real effort or changes on my part. It was a dream I had for too many years and the only magic is within ourselves. Finding SP was the "miracle" I needed. Joining it and becoming active has changed my life and body for the better. My only regret is that I didn't do this 15 years ago when the pounds really starting packing on me but I doubt if SP was available and for some unknown reason to me I probably wouldn't have joined or followed through on healthy changes. Now is our Time to keep moving forward and be healthy and happy. Continue to take good care of yourself.

Hugs & Love, emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
