Making a New Start
Monday, August 31, 2009
Well here I am. This is the place where I will make or break the patterns of the past. I have been on kind of a Spark break for a couple of months. At least for the most part. Yes, life got in the way. Or at least I let it. I could go on & on about what happened and give every excuse that we have all heard . But the simple truth is I
got too busy to care whether I was here or not. I sure do thank my friends for not giving up on me and for being there for me , even when I didn't check in for a couple of days. No I don't think it is expected of me, but when you share with people and they share back, you start to care , I mean really care about their wellbeing. So I always figured the respectful thing to do was to let at least one person know what is going on. Even if I wasn't there ,they would have an idea of where things were at.
So now starts the next part of this journey. The wonderful leader & friend on one of my teams labeled today 'Makeover your Mindset Monday' . Boy that is so approiate for me. Not only for today, but for the rest of my life. I think it will take some time for this to happen. I think that a lot of the problem is complancey . I am comfortable at this weight and that tends to get me into trouble. I think That is why I stall at this stage. Of course if the stall lasts too long I am back where I started. I do Not want that this time nor will I allow myself to let that happen. Yes I realize that the choice is mine. So right here and right now I choose to continue with the path I set for myself 2 years ago this month. In that 2 years I have lost 60 lbs and I am so happy & proud to have done that. There is still 40-50 lbs left to get rid of and this time I am committed to doing just that.
And then there is the exercise demon. I was doing good on that for quite a while and then the only exercising I was doing was general. Mowing & that kind of thing. Doesn't do much for the endurance. I can feel the difference. So I will also get my room in the basement ready for that portion of my new mindset. That one always takes the longest. hehehe
So for better or worse, I am back here to do what I need to do and hopefully help others along the way. Thanks for sticking by me and letting me get thru the trials & tribulations of life and come out on the otherside knowing that this is where I need to be.
