Monday Monday

Saturday, July 23, 2011

Remember the song by the Mamma's and Poppas? I sure do; as it was one of my favorites. "Monday Monday cant stand that day. " Me either. It seems like every Monday I am starting my diet. It would feel good to make it to Tuesday and still be on the diet. Excuses, I have plenty of them: I cant do it today because it is too hot outside, I can start tomorrow after i have a tiny" piece of dessert, None knows I started, No one knows I quit! I just have to gain the mind set to do it and not be blaming anyone situation or person. Isn't that really it. I am the only one who can do this life style change. It will benefit me and in the long run my family. What can they do, just encourage me as they have in the past. I know I will need encouragement rom Spark members as I have read the words of encouragement and success. I"ve witnessed and can see what words of encouragement can do for each of us struggling just by reading the spark comments after a blog entry. Success stories like my daughter are like stairs being put in front of me to help keep me on the path. Maybe these can do the same for you. One of the movies my wife loved, fhey told the patient to take "baby steps", That is how I am going to get started, I need to lose 100 pounds but I am going to take them five at a time, so i can see some success and maybe not have to hear Monday Monday unless I have the album playing on the old 8 track or my IPOD.

    I like the idea of taking it 5 lbs at a time - I think that is the greatest key to success.
