Pot and kettle, sing it together: "Ebony and...ebony, live together in perfect harmony..."

Monday, August 10, 2009

So since my last blog I have realised (much helped by the comments that all pointed in the same direction...) that my memory is indeed short lived, for a few years, maybe months ago I did not have the best diet in the, if I did , I would not be here today with still another 30+ kilos to shift! I must have other friends who wished every day I would take their advice as I would have started to feel better instantly just from seeing there was a possible better way...

But I need to emphasise I am only saddened because all my friends are bright and clever and oh-so-competent in all the other aspects of their lives and I did not go on-and-on about my new lifestyle. Nope, not in the fact in one case I did not pipe a thing for a good 2 days, it only came out by accident, as I felt 'bad' advertising my wish to look after myself because my friend does not. I mentioned it, then when faced with total lack of interest or disbelief (how much does it cost though?? free...really???) I let go. Funny thing is, I could see the smugness in BF's eyes, because I can now face the real world and survive, and that finally made him proud.

And I guess it is really that that did make me sad and angry: that people I care about could look after themselves and yet chose not to.

But as you guys said: maybe they are just not ready yet, and when they are, I will be right there to support them.

In the meantime, I will still quietly disapprove of expensive cons that pass for miracle cures, and I will focus on me as afterall, I should truly be the only person I moralise about food, exercise, self as it sounds, I am putting myself first and reserving my energy to encourage my fellow Sparkers who have commited to change. The rest...enjoy the chocolate, donuts, cocktails and milkshakes!

Have a magnificient Monday ya all...I am off to study the pedometer function of my HRM!!

    sometimes you are in my brain!!!
    so i actually started 3-4 comments on your last blog, but then kept editing myself...
    you always take the words out of my mouth.
    so this is a useless comment as well, that should have been edited... HA!

    Welcome back! Even with the slip after your return you are still logging in to SP and, I think most importantly, you are recognizing how you feel after "good" days and "bad" days. The fiber, water, veggies, exercise make you feel good; the high volume, low nutrition foods and inactivity make you feel yucky. I'd say that the vast majority of people don't put in the effort to see the effect their food intake and activity have on how they feel. How can you make the right choice if you don't recognize the effect of your choice? Now that you see the difference, you can make healthy choices as a gift to yourself.

    Thank you for sharing your thoughts. Each day is a new opportunity to live healthy. YOU are important so stand in the knowledge you are worth the effort to live to the best of your wisdom. Love yourself not your food. Have a great day.

    I'm not sure I could be converted to those fancy gadgets that need a doctorate to be understood...:)
