Trying to Make a Come Back!

Tuesday, September 02, 2014

I have been fighting to get back on the wagon for some time now. Been beating myself up for my lack of control and not keeping my eye on the prize which is better health and feeling better about myself. But my BFF Kim once again has been there for me and with her wise advice I am feeling better today about climbing back up on that wagon. Thank you Kim; you are always there for me and it means so much! emoticon

I've been guilty of being a Spark-lurker, emoticon snooping around but not tracking or reading or participating like I know I need to. This behavior stops today! emoticon So many on here have had great success; I know that can be me one day!

On a lighter note; we have finished our house siding / remodel / landscaping project; here is a before and after! Now I need to update me to match my new pretty house! emoticon

Don't beat your self up, please! !!! You are going through life, there are ups and downs. I know you know this, we are human, and have our frailties. That doesn't make you less of a person! This is a battle, and l have been where you are so many times that l can't even count them!
I have to keep reminding myself that even though I may not see as many external changes, as quickly as l would like, changes are being made on the inside. So, think of the good you are doing for your future, your dh, your kids, and their kids to come! Think that you are helping disease stay at bay, and with a healthier body you will be also have longer to share His grace with a hurting world.
Remember, you are more than your measurements, more than a number on a scale. The measure of your worth was worth His death. So great is His love.
I love you! !!! P'S your home looks lovely! emoticon

    I'm still here, Dearheart, but I could of done just like you have. I keep tracking and everything else that we do here on SP, but lose weight. Today was another "blew it" day, so I could of just said that I'm trying to come back too. But here I am with still trying to get it to all click together because I won't give up!! We have to keep pushing ourselves to really have our hearts here too! We will get to our goals one day for sure. We will!! Hugs, Karen
ps. Your house is so beautiful! I love it!!
