I have learned my life is not about my weight but I also realize my weight can change my life. I have learned how to be healthy and how to eat right. I know I must move in order to stay healthy and I do the best I can. I will not worry about my weight day in and day out but I will do my best to stay on track. Life is short.

Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts have thought this way for the past couple of years as have kept with a five to seven pound range and yes would like to lose some more but my body is telling me it is comfortable where it is and I accept it at my age getting too thin is not good and need to be healthy to care for my DH
Best wishes as you continue to accept that you are where you were meant to be
One day at a time
Thinking of you with love prayers peace

For me, the lesson recently has been about reeducating myself about what health is and what it isn't...that also includes mental, emotional and spiritual health.

Glad you are on the right path towards a whole and happy YOU. emoticon

It is great to hear someone talk about their goals & not just weight. It is wonderful you have made those changes in your life which have been positive. emoticon Way to go.

My reason for being on spark people to encourage good exercise to keep healthy & eat healthy. Unfortunately my eatting habits are still not the best but I'm working on it.

You've got it. You said it much more concisely but I tried to say the same thing in my blog today . . . true confessions. It's not about the number on the scale, it is about being healthy.

Very well said and my sentiments exactly. I believe in focus but not to the point that it consumes every good thing in our life. Day by day making sure to experience the most. emoticon

Well said! Participating in the Spark community can help you move toward goals such as improving your health, flexibility, self esteem, strength and many others. Keep on with your great attitude and have a great day!

I loved the "Golden Rule" that was on our childhood rulers back in the 50s. It's as important today as it was back then:
Do unto others as you would have others do unto you.

PIGGYWAY, Trying is better than not trying at all, so you are doing everything you can to be healthy. Those that don't try are the one's in big trouble, but I know sometimes there are those that are physically unable to do as much as they should. The idea is not to give up, the goal is always there, but it may take each one of us more time than others.

For me, because I'm older, my metabolism is so low that I have to eat the minimum amount of calories, even if I exercise, to start losing. I'm hoping that will change, so I can eat just a little bit more.

Looks like your doing very well. Keep it going!

Can't give up! Keep Going!

I could of written the same thing, I had a real health crisis last week, I was really afraid and what I got out of this was the sincere desire to live healthy and not focus on weight, numbers etc. etc., I have spent the last few years of my life stressing about this and its not worth it, I am going to enjoy life NOW, I went to chicos and bought myself an outfit that looks great on me today and did not worry about how long it will last if I lose weight, what a joke, I am living now

it is not how many times you fall that matters it's what you learn every time you get up again

Thank you. Your blog came at just the right time for me. I have been restricted in activity since late Nov 2013. For most of Feb & March my only activity has been to get to the bath room. As I am starting to walk again I am expecting 2-3 more eye surgeries. I am blessed that the medical treatment is available but struggling with the loss of muscle & any headway I made pre-surgeries. You are correct. I needed the reminder.
Thanks again

Saturday was the first time I ever really wrote a blog. I am overwhelmed by the response that you all gave me. It really makes me feel part of a team and there is strength in numbers.
I want to share something with you that happened yesterday and I think most of us can relate. As a parent I think most moms really want their daughters to be happy and healthy.

My oldest daughter was home from college visiting. She is a biology/chemistry major, very smart, I think smarter than me. We were on the couch with her two younger sisters that live on her every word.Isabelle is 12 and Abbey is 9. Toni, the oldest, was complaining that she was fat. She is not fat, she is skinny as a rail, a size 10 at 6 foot tall, blonde hair blue eyes, great skin! Isabelle also jumped in and said she had fat thighs, and a big but. Next Abbey jumped in to say she was also fat. I thought for a few moments. How could these girls think for a second that they are fat, they are not by any stretch of the imagination.

I think that by me verbalizing out loud to them that I was overweight with little comments over the years that maybe I taught them to think this way. Also, add to that the media and other girls and what they say and boom we have a thought process, you can't be happy with yourself and you must think in the terms of your weight. I know, no one in our family has ever made a comment to one of them about their weight either way, we have only ever made comments to them about how beautiful they are. I quickly set them straight. I also shared with them this thought. When I was 18 I was a size eight and I showed them the picture. I asked them if they thought I was fat, they said no. I went through my 20's and 30's size 10 and then 40's size 16. Even now at my current size, they do not think I am fat. I told them that I have always thought I was fat, even when I wasn't, this is according to the medical guidelines, so I have never enjoyed myself even when I looked great. There is a big lesson in this for all of us.

I am not sure how to solve the problem in my girls yet, but I am sure going to try. I wonder if there are any scientific studies that show how many good comments or thoughts it takes to wipe out one bad. We are so much more critical of ourselves and how we look than anyone else could ever be. This can be a good thing to make us constantly strive to be better, but we sure get carried away with our looks as women. Good luck to all and remember the unbelievably strong effect our thoughts, words, and actions we have on our children.
