I wanted to give my thoughts. What it has taught me and what I have observed, learned about myself and the way others think. <BR> One thing to always remember, you have the power: To say NO! <BR> NO, to food that is not good, NO to someone who tries to make you eat what you do not want to. NO to that next serving you do not need. NO to the demon that wants you fat! No to the food at parties that will derail you, NO to the voice inside of you that tells you" one more won’t... Sun, 2 Dec 2012 10:41:19 EST What I have learned about feelings... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5119139 When you feel lost,left out, lonely , sad, scared , left behind, Gone astray, miss guided, gloomy, Low-spirited , used, or just plan sad, reach-out, you may be suprsed who shows up. People care even though you may not think so. Wed, 31 Oct 2012 13:14:24 EST WHAT I HAVE LEARNED http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5099949 That I can do it, if I put my mind and body into it. <BR> <BR> I remember a few months ago I would start and stop my diet, felt like a failer, but I kept doing it until I got it right! You can do the same! Mon, 15 Oct 2012 13:22:18 EST Another weekend of choices http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5087881 What choice will you make. Weekends seem to be the easiest for me. If I feel like going off track, I head for the gym, go outside ,play with the dogs, take a shower but, at work I am chained to my chair and my computer. I used to go to the cafeteria and get something bad, now I reach for fruit, water or yogurt. Take a walk around the floor until the urge goes away. <BR> <BR> My gym time is a time to think, be with just myself and plan out my choices for the coming week. Dont get me wrong, I... Fri, 5 Oct 2012 12:43:43 EST Today I am doing it for me.... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5085188 This past week I lost 2.2 pounds because I decided a month or so ago, no excuses. That meant if at the end of the week I didnt have a loss, I would only have myself to blame. I did not want to blame myself, so I have lost every week since Aug 27th. This time I meant it! If you are consistant with what you are doing, not even TOM can weigh you down. Stop making excuses and stick to at least one new thing each week. You can do it~ ~! Wed, 3 Oct 2012 12:22:46 EST Reflection http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5075819 Life - no regrets. When you mess up, put it past you and learn from it! <BR> What i learned this week. That you get out what you put in! 1 pound is healthy but i wanted more. <BR> Plan : Do more to lose more ...without neglecting the family... could i get up early and go to gym? My down fall is, I love to sleep in! I will work on this ... hummm Wed, 26 Sep 2012 13:12:35 EST Goodies http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5075389 How do you give them? <BR> Wed, 26 Sep 2012 08:00:14 EST Weekends http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5072980 Define the Number” <BR> <BR> The # is just that, a number. Whether I am turning 50 or my weight is down 2 pounds. It’s really how I feel about myself in my cloths. I put a weight on the paper as to where I want to be because; I know my cloth’s feel better at that weight and you have to have a GOAL WEIGHT to win. But in all truths, the amount I weight would only matter if I was extra luggage going for a flight! <BR> <BR> - “Measurements” Done <BR> <BR> Being healthy - Everytime I put som...

I will do even better this week!, to get the same results next week and Better! <BR> <BR> To those of you who struggle day in and day out, Stop and breath. Look at the world through your eyes only and decide if you can commit to a better you, If you said no, then rethink as to why you said that.. You are worth the time and effort! You can do it ! <BR> <BR> Wed, 19 Sep 2012 13:17:06 EST IT HAS TO BE ABOUT YOURSELF ! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5063781 You have to make it about yourself because, you have to make the same choices everyday. Do I eat that , do I workout today. Your only hurting yourself if you fall off the track. So decide every morning, "today is going to be a great day!" I joined a challange and with the help of our team I will stay true to myself and them! I'm not saying I might not give in to a piece of this or a bit of that, but I will not bing because I am worth it! <BR> <BR> So make it a great day every morning when ... Mon, 17 Sep 2012 19:32:22 EST It is all about accountability to myself... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5060569 My goal for this 12 week challenge: <BR> <BR> No excuses, I will not make any up or use them. If I do not do something it is because I chose not to do it. Not because I stubs my toe, not because I was sad, and not because I was sleepy, or TOM came to visit. If you are losing weight it does not matter if TOM was here or not. It was because I was lazy and talked myself out of it. <BR> <BR> My goal is to feel better about how I see myself. Not how others see me or what I think they think I lo...
