Look have been put down for so many years...and when I look back at photos of myself when I was like 15 or 16 I was only slightly large for my frame style. The way my parents put it was that I was as big as a horse :(. Danged parents!!
For close to 30 years I heard on an almost daily basis..you are fat. NOW, when I hear those words, I automatically shut those words off...when someone tells me that. I mean, like, for goodness sake, I KNOW that I am FAT! I have already lost close to 30 pounds on SP. I am on my way...
The other day I was standing in line at a bulk grocery store the other day and I noticed that there was a large display for frozen cheese cakes that were dipped in chocolate. Since I was planning on cooking for 240 people this weekend, I was interested in the prices. Some of the folks in line looked at me suspiciously...as if I was going to suck up the entrie display...I mentioned to the cashier that I have lost close to 30 pounds ON LINE through a free program called SP...several of the people in line asked for me to repeat the name SPARKPEOPLE several times so that they could check it out for themselves.
Once you drop 10 pounds on SP you will notice a complete change in our thinking! :) Al
Please...start by reading some of the motivational writing available in SP. That is where I started. There were so many times that I just wanted to chuck everything in the trash and just continue my own personal "pity party" and excuses for why I could not lose weight.
Don't allow yourself to fall into that trap!! Please don't. Once you are there it is so danged hard to get you out of that type of funk.
A month or so ago, Deb (soulmate) was in the same type of funk. She was depressed, unhappy over her weight. I suggested to her that she should try SP. She did and he lost 10 pounds in a month!
Here is a nugget of truth: Everyone can lose weight. Losing the weight is not the problem, keeping the weight off is the real culprit! Blessings, Al
