I think with the weather today it will be a trick if I can figure out how to get to the other office today-- safely.. I just love winter and it's storms!! This is what I call a South Dakota Hurricane-- a blizzard.

Good luck with your hotel week - that certainly is a challenge, trying to eat right when you're away from home. You sound like you've got the right idea, stocking up. Best thing you can do is plan, plan, plan! Nice that the hotel has some equipment, too.

I am going to be faced with a big challenge. I will be hoteling it for 4 nights a week for 5 weeks. On the bright side the hotel I stay at has a workout room. It is not much of one but they do have a elliptical and treadmill. I just need to get it worked out about the food.

I went to the store today to supply my "new desk" with water and low cal snacks. I even stocked up on the sugar free hard candies. I won't have much access to Spark but I can try my darndest to overcome!

I am throwing away excuses! I can't go to the gym because I am too fat. Well I have went to the gym for two weeks now. I can't eat right because I don't have time. Well I have been making time. So away away all the excuses!

I don't remember how many diets I have seen out there. A lot of them are a big waste of money. I will never forget what my father,who has been dead over 4 years used to say everything in moderation. That includes food. If you use that as your mantra it will help in losing weight.

I am gonna throw away this stupid platteau! I need to remember and think about what works for me and it is to no eat junk and to spend a lot of time at the gym. I also need to remember to not push myself so hard and so fast. I thought I was going slow but my hip and knees tell me otherwise.

I've got to get in my closet and donate all the clothes that are getting big on me. Maybe I can make some room in there for some smaller sizes! emoticon

I am throwing away not sticking to it! I will NOT allow myself to get discouraged & stop my healthful changes. I will NOT get to my goal and then go back to my old ways!

i am throwing away my inattentiveness to ME. i am throwing away the want to be accepted by doing all i can for someone else. i am throwing away the inability to stand up for what I want. i am throwing away bad thoughts about my number one fan, ME.

New Day: I am throwing away being disappointed in me. i am throwing away the unwillingness to move on after I have not lived up to my promises to myself. I am throwing away not loving my own self.

i am throwing away my ignorance. i aim to no longer lie to myself about what i eat. if i want to eat it that badly, i will admit to eating it. and instead of feeling bad about eating it, i will enjoy it and move onward.

I am throwing away my food addiction realizing that food does not make me feel better. I am getting rid of my none existent self esteem or my eagerness to please others over myself. I am throwing away the thought that no one will love me because I am "fat." Yeah I said it but, it doesn't have power over me because I am changing that. I will no longer feel like an outsider in my own family because of my weight. I realize the reason why I look so different is the fat but not a flaw in me. I give up the attitude that I can only feel good when I eat. I give up pleasing everyone and start loving myself. emoticon

I am throwing away my bad self esteem! There is more to me than what I weigh! I will remind myself about all my good features and let myself feel good about myself despite not having a "perfect" body!

I am going to throw away the million one one reasons why I don't stick to my goals and the self doubt and self loathing. They are destructive and are holding me back.

I am tossing "shoulds".

I have always tried to do things because I should. "I should lose weight because I'm fat", "I should be more organized", "I should work out because I'm lazy" etc. etc. This never works and I end up feeling bad about myself.

Now, this time, I'm losing weight because I want to take care of myself. I want to be nice to my body and feed it good things and give it the exercise it craves and nurture it.

I am a very social person, and that's why SP works so well for me. However, recently I've allowed myself to withdrawn and avoid contact with people. It's partially due to an unusual schedule that makes it difficult to keep up with friends in real life, and it's partially because I am so unhappy with myself and how things are. I am throwing my unhappiness in the garbage can, everyday is a new opportunity to be HAPPY, to connect with people, and to make things different going forward. To quote Pumba from the Lion King, "I've gotta put my behind in the past". Both literally and figuratively. Gonna start living for today.

Dance like no one is watching,
Make money like you don't need it,
Love like you'll never get hurt.

I was 47 when I started this journey. 5'8" tall and 213 pounds and content with my couch potato existence, or so I convinced myself anyway.

My biggest baggage when I started SP was self-doubt and lack of motivation. I have lost weight before and gained it back....but did I want to do it again? Could I actually keep it off? I mean, I was diabetic and had high cholesterol probs, and a family...I had every reason to WANT to make healthy choices...but would I stick with the plan?

As you will see on my Spark Page, so far, very good...there are a lot of changes I have yet to make, but the greatest change I did was toss self-doubt into the garbage can...not only can I do this and make it stick, I AM doing this.

Here's where you can figuratively toss your mess, baggage and old habits and say bye-bye for good. Let it all out and be real!
