Starting Weight 2014 and Weekend Food Blog

Tuesday, January 28, 2014

I stumbled, I fell and now I’m finally back up on my own two feet. Déjà vu… I can’t count how many times I’ve fallen and miss-stepped and gained but the point is that I never give up and I always come back. I was really nervous this time that I wouldn’t return because no matter how many starts I had or how I almost made it back up, I kept falling and failing and not being able to move forward. It was discouraging but I kept at it until I got back to the path that I know always helps me succeed. A path that includes my Sparkpeeps, my blogs, tracking my food, hitting the gym, drinking my water, getting enough sleep and most importantly…believing in myself and knowing that I can do this and I can succeed.

It’s no longer maybe I can do this…It’s now I can do this, I will do this, watch me do this!!!!

    Hi Mary! Been too long. I always love your food blogs and every time i see one, i get this urge to do one myself but then i get lazy and sidetracked. Hopefully reading more of yours will get me motivated. Don't worry about the setbacks cuz you're totally on your way to getting to your goals. And your homemade nachos look divine!

    Mary, I feel like we the same person. I just kept falling and feeling so discouraged so many times I probably can't count but now I'm trying so hard to get back on track. I gained too, unfortunately. You are doing everything right my friend and your food choices are great! We can do this! Be strong and keeping moving on!! emoticon emoticon
