One pound at a time - literally!

Saturday, April 11, 2009

Well, I am happy to report I have lost another pound. One pound!!! I am happy about it too. I have consistently lost one pound since I started the Done Girls Challenge. I am now at 201, just two pounds (or two weeks) from ONEderland - Again!! This is sooo funny to me. I was so happy when I reached it the first time. Then life happened and I got off track. I was actively exercising but was not losing any weight. Now, I am happy to see the scale move in the opposite direction.

I must confess I am starting to feel overwhelmed. I spend so much time on the computer and it seems I still don't have time to check on my Sparksisters the way I used to. So for that I apologize. Leading three teams is not easy. I heard that this is what happens and I am starting to feel it. Once, I get my stride I will be fine. The other part of that is that I am trying to keep myself on the priority list. It is so easy to neglect ourselves by being there for everyone else. What good will I be, if I am everything to you and nothing to myself. Part of this journey is self discovery. I am discovering how much I give (which is not a bad thing), but also discovering that I can do that and take care of me too. I don't want to encourage everyone else and be stuck at the same place! You all will be in bikini's and I will be hiding under an umbrella somewhere. LOL!! That was a funny thought. NO WAY, HOSEA! I will be on the beach with you. Enjoying the sun and looking fierce!!! It is coming people. Hold on and hang in there. We are going to make it. I don't care if it is one pound at a time (and it literally is for me). We will reach our goals and be the better for it. I love you all.

    Hey, Magni - I'm at a plateau, too - so don't feel bad. Spring is here and it was about this time last year that we started our Spark journey. Maybe it was the spring weather that motivated us then - if so, we should be back on track soon.
