Take a walk, listen to music, surf the Internet, play games, read a book, and sometimes I enjoy the peace and quiet!

I try to be creative with my time.
If there is nothing special planned for the day I go to the preserve and walk on the boardwalk, usually more than once.

Get invovled!!! Don't weigh too often and be grateful for every pound you drop because it is one pound closer to your goal.

Only as high as I reach can I grow,
Only as far as I seek can I go,
Only as deep as I look can I see,
Only as much as I dream can I be

I don't have much time to think about it. But when I do, I focus on the next goal, and how good it will feel when I get there.

Onward, comrades!

This is a lifelong journey. You have to change the way you eat, the way you live and your mindset. Life before you started your journey is over and now it's all about changes. Healthy changes.

A friend posted this on facebook and thought it to be appropriate here:

The number one reason why people give up so fast is because they tend to look at how far they still have to go instead of how far they have gotten.

Don't give up. Give it some time and it will happen.

It's unreasonable to expect to lose the weight quickly, as most of us put it on a little at a time over the years. Just as it takes 3500 extra calories to gain a pound, it takes a 3500 calorie deficit to lose that pound. So, whether we choose to eat fewer calories or burn more calories through exercise to create that deficit, we still have the same science in play.

The biggest thing to remember is that you can't wait until you lose the weight to be everything you want to be. We are all a work in progress - we won't suddenly be perfect or happy the day we step on the scale and see our goal weight. We'll still have the same situations surrounding us to deal with - family, finances, jobs. The problems don't go away because our weight is that "perfect" number.

So, enjoy the journey.

I recite the famous line from "The Little Engine that Could" - I think I can, I think I can-----I knew I could and little by little, time passes and the weight begins to come off. Look for each tiny step and make a big production of it. Reward yourself for the little things. While the scale may not go down, maybe you have increased energy, maybe your blood tests came up better, maybe the clothes start feeling a little looser. Then soon after that, you might see the scale go down.

Just go about your daily routine. You didn't put the weight on overnight, you can't expect to take it off overnight. It has taken me 2 years to lose 117 pounds. I figure I am worth the time and effort. The time is going to pass anyway.

I love SparkPeople

Today is the first day of the rest of my life.

I am responsible for my own happiness.

My name is Bonnie

I lost 122 pounds and have maintained it since 12/28/12.

Too Blessed to be Stressed.

It seems to be taking FOREVER to lose this weight. How do you keep yourself content until the next pound drops off? I abhor how slowly the scale is moving. How do you do it?

This time its for real.
