Stage 4 and the changes I need to make.

Thursday, August 07, 2008

On Spark people the today's quote is:
"Success is going from failure to failure without a loss of enthusiasm. "

Today I started stage 4 on Spark. It has been quite a journey! I have learned a lot about myself and my eating habits. The hardest thing has been succeeding in eating right, most of the time, while having a husband that needs to gain weight and eats nothing that is good for him.

I know now that as I realize where I have been going wrong I need to learn from that knowledge. I have every intention of sticking to my plan. This is for life in more ways than one.

1. I will have to eat this way for the rest of my life.
2. If I want a life worth living i will have to lose weight and keep it off.

    First of all, congratulations on a 40 pound weight loss. And second, I'm sorry you don't get much support at home. However, you Spark friends are here for you. Perhaps your husband can control what he eats, but not what you eat. Is he threatened by your weight loss? Some men are.

    My husband was a big supporter when I started losing weight. However, after I'd lost quite a bit he thought it wouldn't hurt to start eating all those things I'd given up. I think now he realizes that this is not a "phase." It's a lifetime change of eating habits.

    Have a very successful August.
