The Power Within Us

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Sunday, October 13, 2013

It has been well over a month since my last blog. During this time, I have had many days of ups and downs, discouraged when that scale just did not budge and when I felt that yes I am sticking to my good eating habits. Really? Well, maybe not all of the time.

What I have realized is that the power to change my life or lifestyle, is within me and within everyone of us who have chosen to live a more healthy life. It isn't always easy and there are days that I just don't want to exercise or that I really want that slice of cake, etc. What do I do? Most days I don't cave into the negative wants or if I do I have that slice of cake; however, a much smaller piece than what the old me would have had. Yes, I usually exercise. I tell myself, ok today I will only do 10-15 minutes. Frequently, once I get started I end up with 30 or 45 minutes and boy do I feel good about myself when this happens.

So, when I get discouraged because the pounds just aren't coming off fast enough, I try to remind myself that I do have the power to change and that my faithfulness has paid off. Thanks to SP this is a journey that I no longer have to make on my own. There is so much help and encouragement to be had here at this site. Thank you Spark People! emoticon
