This Sparked Me!

I am trying to stay positive but I do have some sabotage and sometimes I think that I can't do this I have been overweight all of my life and it is scary to lose weight even though I know this is good for me....

    It's alright to be scared. You have the courage to try something different. Question to ask yourself "What I am afraid of"? You are a beautiful person. Made in GOD's image. You can do all things through Christ that strength you. Don't look back at the past. Look head toward your future. emoticon

    I'm scared, too. But this seems to be a great place to be scared. I have only been a member for a couple of weeks, but people are so helpful and caring here. We can inspire each other. Keep moving forward. We can do this!

    I'm not scared, I'm PISSED OFF. I dropped a dress size in the first few weeks, have been working out 3 times a week, stay within the recommended calorie range and NOTHING. I can't believe it. Why the hell am I sweating my brains out. I'm too old for this s--t anway emoticon

    I am so scared too. I don't think I have lost one pound since I joined spark people but I have been keeping better track of what I eat and I exercise more than I did before. I haven't always been heavy but I feel like I always will be and that really scares me. Just talking about it helps. Thank you.

    emoticon This reminds me that I'm not the only one. Sometimes I get so stressed that I want to quit because I think I don't really deserve it.
I sit down in a quiet place and meditate for about 10 minutes and my mantra is, "I deserve this! I want this! and I'm going to do this! I'm doing this for me and only me."
You ARE worth it. Go for it and don't look back. emoticon

    The word 'success' scares the crap out of me. What me succeed? Who thought of that one? I haven't lost any weight yet but I know that doesn't scare me a bit. I hope you can accomplish your goals & that success doesn't scare you :) Cheers, Liz
