New Year, Another Chance

Saturday, January 01, 2011



As I was looking over my Sparkpage the other day, I noticed I hadn't written a blog since last New Years Eve. How was that possible? A whole year of spinning and staying the same. I had to ask myself, what is important? I have lost weight before, but the problem has always been keeping it off. I did make it thru the year with minimal weight gain. Only about 7 pounds but if I ignore it now, it will get away from me and I'm not going to let that happen this time. I'm hoping I have learned from past mistakes. Complacence is the enemy. I tend to get comfortable at a weight and think I have done enough work. Lets play. LOL One thing about this year, is it has given me the time to feel the weight that I am at and know that being here is not good for any part of my body. So as this new year begins, with the help of friends on Spark, I am setting forth on a old/new journey to loose the rest of this weight. If I succeed i won't know who I am when I look in the mirror. Kind of scarey.

To all of you that have been with me from the start, thank you for hanging in there and letting me work thru all the garbage to get back. I know this won't be easy, but I also know it is what I must do. I'm sure it will be slow going at first and that I will balk at different times and get tired of it. What else is new. But it is like a wise woman I know said, "this journey is different for all of us and we must do it at our own pace and with what works best for us." You know who you are. hehehe And with that, I am off. To the new year and all it holds, the good and the bad.
