Blog Challenge

How are you feeling today?
Have you been able to stick to your plans? If yes, what is working for you... if no,, what is not working for you
Are you still riding the wave of euphoria with the prospects of some great goal?

Take the time to really dig deep and see if you are committed
to this change in your life or if there is a little part of you that
is reluctant.

So often, people will lament about starting a diet
or weight loss program and by the 3rd day it's just too hard or
doesn't work. Really look at your plan and decide if you need
to tweak your ideas and changes. Remember, radically chang-
ing your whole lifestyle is very difficult. Consider taking a few
areas at a time and begin to ease into good healthy changes.

SO I tried to vlog, but I keep getting interrupted LOL. So im gonna just type it up instead.

For such a long time ive done Weight Watchers. Its a great program, and it does work. I lost 50 lbs at one point doing it. Then they changed the plan around, and I ended up pregnant, and so much has changed since then. My body for one instance.
I think any plan will work, if you work with the plan. Weight watchers would end up being on the lower end of my calorie range, if entering my calorie range at all. I started to realize my blood sugar was dropping more so, because I felt so restricted to have things. I knew there was flex pts etc, but to me I felt like I was being bad if I went into them.
Then one day I woke up and said- ya know ive been on spark for such a long time, why not give the calorie counting thing a try. And although im still struggling here and there, I don't feel deprived like I was feeling before. Even at times I feel like should I do weight watchers during the week? And then counting calories on the weekends? I still don't know. But I know i need to continue on this journey to find out. If by chance at any time i need to switch things up again, i know i can.
i think we are all fighting for our health, if we know about spark, then were here, if we make an effort to check in, then were still fighting. Even those that never heard of spark are fighting, its those that know about spark and have been on spark and suddenly go missing, you start to worry about.
For the most part im trying to be positive, i was told that the negative self talk to myself, is stunting my individual growth, and healthy journey. So every day im sure all of u have seen if not most, my wonderful positive self talk in the status box :) Im worth it, im worth my health. Im worth being happy. And im gonna say it every day until i "KNOW" it.
The one and only goal i have is to be healthy, all the other stuff is added benefits to weight loss and being healthy. So if i can be a size 6 some day then awesome! But i don't want diabetes, and if i do, then i wanna erase it.
Ive always been an athlete, and i will continue to be one. My relationship with food will need to change. And i will continue to be on this health journey. No one said it was gonna be easy. Im doing what comes naturally to me, fighting. I will fight for my health.

    Keep giving SP a chance, I truly believe it is the best thing out there. You just have to REALLY want to reach that goal. If one goes at it half-heartedly, that's the results they will get.

As for the SP friends that just disappear, I'm sure there is a mix of those too. Some have just given up on this plan in the same way they have given up on ALL plans. THEY ARE QUITTERS. But others may still be sticking with the plan but are not as social as others here. I know I have been trying to spend less time on the computer, but I just hate enjoying the company of all my good friends here, so I stick around.

Stay strong, and keep the faith.
