"I deserve to be successful" and "I am worth celebrating!"
Hello there ... I find myself here after an email from "caliman1" today. However, I expected to see many posts here, so I wonder if I am lost and confused. Am I in the right place? Maybe I am to look in the general area or one of the other specialty areas for a nominee? As for celebrating Me ... I will just post here, because I really am lost.
I posted a blog on my page, but it really is not much of a blog. I really have not accomplished too much in the few weeks I have been on Sparkpeople. I find weight loss and exercise are an extreme challange to me ... I want to lose weight, but my steps have truly been just baby steps. The first week I challanged myself by taking the stairs up and down two flights of stairs at work, as well as getting the mail, instead of the elevator. The second week I added in another flight up and down to use the restroom, along with drinking at least eight glasses of water a day. I have only maintained my weight so far. This week, I have committed to not eating after 7 pm (Ugh! I already blew that one today). However, I have made some wonderful friends, and I still feel the *sparks* to keep me going. I know I am not perfect ... but I do want to make healthier choices. I just need to be more conscious of my decisions and less animated. Once I realize I have gone wrong I just let it go saying "oh, well ..." - Maybe I need to say, "okay kiddo ... stop RIghT ThERe!" I do hope that I will be able to continue to CeLEbraTe with all my friends here on SparkPeople for a long time to come. I hope my bad days will soon be far behind me and I will find myself CeLEbraTing success.
Good Luck to All of US - I will hold your hand if you will hold mine! :) laura
