10,000-14,999 SparkPoints

We said goodbye to September, and hello to October. What does this mean for me.
No more excuses of it being to dark to walk......hello, we are heading into summer in this part of the world. That means the sun rises earlier and sets later.
No more excuses of "its cold to walk" Thats what sweatshirts are for....and besides its getting warmer.
I guess what I am saying, and I am talking to myself.......NO MORE EXCUSES.

Quite a few months back I began the 100 Days to Weightloss Challenge, and completely fell off the wagon, with my hom situation being what it was. So now is my chance to being it once again.....and away we go.

We need to eliminate the negetive thoughs we have, and turn them into positive ones, and you do this by making a list of any fears or negative behaviours and then say out loud "I used to be that way, but now I am different"
Here is my list
1. People telling me that I can't
2. My lack of willpower
3. Boredom
4. I am to FAT to exercise

Here are my new endings
1. I used to let people tell me I can't, but now I know I can, because of Sparkpeople.
2. I used to lack will power, but now I know it's not the end if I stumble. I just need to get back up and continue with my journey.
3 \i used to be bored, but now I know that there are things to do, to aliviate boredom, like taking a walk, meditation, reading.
4. I used to think that I am to FAT to execise, but now I know that even walking is execise.

Its quite interesting to see what my hurdles are, and learn how to overcome them one step at a time.

    Ah, spring is such a great time for fresh starts! I like the fact that you thought about your biggest negative influences--and how to combat them!

Your last one reminds me of a blog I used to follow when I had more time to follow blogs (not a sparks blog... I will have to see if I can find it again) written by a very overweight woman who dances. I don't always agree with what she says (she is very opposed the concept of losing weight for health reasons, for one) but nonetheless I find her very inspiring. If she doesn't let her weight slow her down, how can I claim that I can't do something because I'm too fat?
