Linda, I'm with you there! I had about a day and a half of cookies and I gained 5 freakin' pounds! 5! lol I'm not putting them on my counter... I told Ivan that us women can gain by just looking at things... the water weight is crazy with us. I'm back on track today... just had my lemon water and going down in just a bit for my breakfast.... then I'm off to see a movie (Les Mis')... I want to be on track. I felt bloated all day yesterday.
I went to look at the mail today and I had 2 wrapped brownies shipped to me for my birthday... through the mail! Can you believe that? LOL From my upline through Avon... it was a "sweet" gift lol but I'm taking them with me to the movie and sharing with my son and his girlfriend...
I can't wait to share my new news with all of you but figure that time will come in it's own time and I don't want to jinx anything... so I'm going to reveal it when the time comes... but I do hope that this year will bring good things and that it'll be a super fun year for us all.
I'm looking to break out of the "comfort zone" as well and why not? We only live once, right?
Let's do it well! So happy to have you all as my friends!
By the way, someone here nominated me back in October (or earlier) to the powers that be (SparkPeople.com folk) that I'm a "success" story... they sent me a questionnaire to fill out, it was VERY intimidating at that time and was quite lengthy... talked of being open to outside media and the like... I hmmm'd and haaaaa'd over it but finally filled it out and sent them my before and after shots (heck, after I finally got to it, I was even more of a success story, right?)... anyway, that's what I did yesterday... so that is also a bit of news I had to share as well... wish me luck on that front as well... and thanks to the mystery person who nominated me... (must have been one of the coaches)...
HAPPY NEW YEAR ONE AND ALL!!!! 2012 wasn't the best year of my life, it didn't start out good as I was extremely sick and lost my step dad all in one week...what a start to the year eh? and I let it take hold of me and it went downhill from then on. The high point of my year was the birth of my 6th grand child....that was amazing. The low point....I lost a friend on boxing day who I was actually astranged with and it broke my heart that we never got to make things right between us. Now I know that they are and I am ready to move on from this. Another low point was waking this morning and seeing Twoville again....Yup, said I would never see 200lbs again and there it was in all it's glory, staring at me from the scale and laughing. Well Twoville, the last laugh is on you...I'm back on the 17DD and you are going to be gone, my ugly friend...GONE I SAY, never to return again. 2013 is going to be MY YEAR!!!!!!!! The one that I step out of my comfort zone and do things I've never done before and the year that I make Linda happy, cause I am the only one who can.
HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!!!! MAY GOD BLESS YOU ALL GREATLY!!!!!!!!!!
I certainly will pray for you - please do so for me also. You have truly inspired me this year by sharing your journey - thank you. It is great hearing of your enthusiasm and watching how "getting healthy" has been such a positive in your life. Happy New Year to all here.
I want to wish all of you the happiest and healthiest of new years!
This has been a very good year for me thus far... 2012 was a year of discovery... I discovered the 17 Day Diet... I rediscovered SparkPeople.com and really made a home for myself here. Only made possible by the friendships I've made here with all of you. Thank you all so very much!
I know that 2013 will see me to my goal weight and I'm so very excited about that. I figure that it'll happen after the summer. What an accomplishment that will be. I can hardly believe that I'll be 45 yrs old and in the best health of my life. I seriously believe that even in my 20's I wouldn't have been in this good of health. I'd probably been in better shape, due to my lifetime of being overweight taking it's toll on my body and arthritis taking it's toll on my joints and such... Nothing much I can do about that... however, I know that the repair this diet plan has made on the inside has been amazing and I truly feel healthier for it.
I'm grateful for it all. I have made some goals for 2013... one is huge and one I will share shortly with you all... but I'm working on it now... I hope this year is a huge year of major change for me and it's not just with my weight and health... so I'm praying on that and ask that you all pray for me as well...
