What’s gong on here? Oh … THAT!

Thursday, June 23, 2011

What’s going on here? I have struggled from the beginning, but was always encouraged by slow changes that were good! I even thought for a while that I was truly being transformed into a self-disciplined, healthy-eating, exercising-regularly old woman who was looking younger because of my weight loss and increased energy!

PRIDE goes before a FALL!

I’ve been having too many slow changes that are destructive.Today’s reading on the scale brought me to a halt! Whoa! (WOE!) I do not want to keep going in that direction! It’s time for some self examination!

What’s gong on? SELF DECEIT! (Pride always is!)

I’ve been telling myself I don’t have time …!

Yes, I DO have time to sign on to SPARKPEOPLE!
Yes, I DO have time to TRACK EVERY BITE!
Yes, I DO KNOW IT IS AN INVESTMENT in achieving my weight-loss / life-changing goals!
Yes, I DO NEED the help / encouragement I get from reading what others are experiencing on their journey.


Admit I cannot do it alone! I NEED SPARKPEOPLE! (Sounds like AA!)

As Steve Siebold says, I am the problem and I am the solution! It’s up to me … with help from SP! (I wrote that on a 3x5 card and put it on my mirror!)

1) Limit calories to 1400 and track every one!
2) Start drinking water earlier in the day to help me feel fuller all day and get a better night’s sleep (not having to get up so often)!
3) Thank God for my blessings, including SPARKPEOPLE!

a.Remember what Chris Downie said:

i. Pep Talk: I can change who I am by changing what I say to myself. Actually God said it first in Proverbs 23:7 and 2 Corinthians 10:5. (I am healthy and energetic!)

ii. Journal daily. I do not write as interestingly or as cleverly as others, but I need to EXPRESS MY FRUSTRATIONS & SMALL STEPS OF PROGRESS. Writing is for my benefit, not for my popularity!

iii. Streaks! Meeting small goals makes me feel better about myself. (I can go for a lot of that!)

    I LOVED your blog! Thanks for sharing a lot of things that I've been dealing with as well! I've been a SP member since August 2008 and have had too many medical set backs that have definitely set my SP goals and programs back, BUT . . . NO MORE! I take heart from thoughts & strategies so let's see where the rest of 2011 takes us! emoticon emoticon
