Hard Work...

Tuesday, June 26, 2007

I was just catching up on my emails from SP and this Healthy Reflection struck a cord with me. Can I handle this job...of regaining my life back from obesity? I sure hope so! Do I need help? YES
I like to think I have always been a hard worker when working for others, but when it comes to myself, I give up soo easily. I know that SP is here and I have to make it my goal every morning when i get up to come here, focus on what's important to me and do this!
I have been letting the little things get to me. I have soo many things I need to do, projects for others, house cleaning (YUCK), keep up with the kids and then focus on me...where do I fit in? I need to make me a bigger priority in my life and work as hard for myself as I do for others!!!!!!!

    So trick yourself :D You can always claim to get on here because your friends need some encouragement or some advice, and really, that is true! If you know you'll have problems getting on here for yourself, tell yourself that you're coming here for others and see if that isn't easier.

    You need to make taking care of yourself a priority! How can you take care of your house and family if you don't take care of yourself, too? By taking care of yourself you will have MORE energy to do the other tings you need to do and be able to do more! Just take one day at a time and focus on what you need to do for yourself (and others) THAT day. Worry about tomorrow tomorrow. You can do it, just don't give up!!

    Yes, you can accomplish your goals. I lived my life much like you and reached 268 pounds about five years ago. Lost over a hundred pounds and it took me a year but I didn't really change my inner lifestyle and food attitudes and it took less than a year to gain quite a bit back. The support we get on SP and our friends here will make the difference. The only way we fail is if we give up and that just can't be an option. You are so special, I love having you in our Puffie group. You deserve this gift to yourself. It is so much easier to love and care for others but we must love ourselves most of all - everyone will benefit. I wonder if we are taught not to be selfish? Who knows.
Big hugs to you this morning. Sandy
