Encourgement for others who are starting again....

Friday, January 11, 2013

I've been thinking about the first time I started spark and when I fell off of it about a year later. We had many changes in that year... We bough a new house and moved so I was too busy for it.... (just another excuse).

However even though I quit sparking I kept of few of the habits I learned the first time around. Like eating breakfast before I joined spark I never ate breakfast except on saturday when I make pancakes, eggs, and bacon for the kids. Thanks to spark I stated eating good healthy breakfasts everyday. Also from the first round I learned to read labels so even though I was not keeping track of what I ate I had learned to be aware of what I am eating.

I guess my point is because of the small steps I had previously taken it is now making it easier to stick with my spark goals this time around. I dont have to think about breakfast and labels so I can now focus in on tracking my food, excercising for 10 minutes and drinking my 8 glasses of water. I've been sparking since the first and I have lost 5 pouns so far and it is this that is helping me to keep sparking.

So if you gave up or are struggling focus in on one small step at a time. I think my failure last time was do to me trying to do it all at once. Keep up the spark. WE can do this together.... emoticon

    Great success. You did NOT have a failure the last time, you simply made some choices that either it wasn't the RIGHT time, the RIGHT emotional place, or something - your CHOICE was to postpone ACTIVE weight loss until you were more ready to make some MORE better choices. Your small steps are a good start and you already KNOW that your choices are going to lead to success.
