First Day of my new Journey

Monday, May 20, 2013

I am sitting at my desk right now and can feel my stomach against the desk..that is it...I am leaning forward to reach the typewriter. I am going to take charge today. I am tired of being tired and in pain all the time. I am as of today the heaviest I have EVER been and that includes when I was in labor for my babies.
I was on facebook and someone posted this: Choices Make a choice to take a chance - to make a change. the picture depicts a very over weight women on the left holding a very yummy (sorry) deep fried chicken sandwich with all the fixings....and on the right is a very healthy sized women with an apple. That my friends...started my thoughts and my journey..
God Speed all!!!

    I had a similar moment to all of you-but I can particularly relate to the muffin top story. That was me and I was tired and worn out with little energy. Now I am working on finding the middle ground -I no longer have a muffin top but maintenance is even more difficult for me. It is important to remember that no one can achieve perfection ie. all successful no failures. As long as we remain on our journey and do not become sidetracked forever we will all be ok.

    We all have an "ah ha" moment. I had mine when I looked into the mirror and saw this huge muffing top bulging over my hip hugger pants. The pants looked way too small and it was then that I decided to do something about the problem. I found my way to the Spark People and started my journey. I am working on the muffin top and am having more successes than I am setbacks. You can do this. Just put your mind to it and take charge. We all have to start somewhere. It can be a struggle, but the benefits out weigh the alternatives. You will feel better and have more energy the farther along in your program that you get. You have made the choice to change. I have faith that you will succeed. I wish you great success with your goals. Take care and God bless, Deb

    It's taken me a long time to realize that I am what I eat. Food is fuel, and if you put high fat or high sugar stuff in your body, it can't run the way it needs to. Just like when you put lousy gas in your car...

You can do this. I've been working the program for just a few weeks, and I'm feeling for in control and more positive about things. It's small changes that make a difference. You're well on your way! Go for it!

    I noticed something similar right when I started. I was overweight. Uncomfortable. Tired all the time. And I was picking up donuts for my breakfast. I saw a thin woman checking out next to me. I remember thinking, "Man, I wish I could be like that." Then I noticed something. She was buying fruit for her breakfast (or lunch). She wasn't buying the fatty donuts. She wasn't buying the garbage. She was eating healthy. It dawned on me that I could be too, I just had to stop the garbage eating. I don't know why I just assumed that people could eat like me and be thin. It must have crossed my mind, but never truly occurred to me.

I wish you luck. You will fall and fail somedays. You will have MORE successful days. It will never be easy. It WILL be worth it. You can do it.
