The 2013 reboot

Tuesday, January 29, 2013

I'm not going to say I'm starting over....yes I've had some personal problems that stalled my progress but I didn't gain any weight back which is good. So what I am going to do is reboot my program and give it the added push I know I need to truly get back to the level of weight loss I was at previously. I'm revisiting the true fundamentals of all of Spark and actually learning some great new tips and tricks even after being a member since 2006. I really have a different outlook on things in my life now especially the people I let in. Sad to say I need to stop being so trusting...I've always been one to give everyone the benefit of the doubt but after being hurt one too many times I'm afraid I need to change that mindset. I'm a very loyal person and friend and I think that perhaps it's about time I was really surrounded by people who truly deserve my friendship and do not have alterior motives. This realization makes me very sad, I so always wanted to believe there was good in everyone...Now I think I'm going to be lucky to find those awesome friends that really are good at heart. I also think this applies to so many other places in this world...probably even why we have war. I just reflect and take a breath and know that karma exisits and what goes around truly comes around.

    I hear the hurt you have experienced. It is true that people often let us down.
    A beautiful person on Spark had a quote that suggested we live on this earth as though we are already in heaven. I went back to copy it and couldn't recall which person's page it was on. I took it to mean we need not carry emotional baggage around, but go boldly and beautifully forward, doing our best, not feeling judged or self conscious, knowing we are receiving infinite love and acceptance, giving off a glow of confidence and happiness.

    I'm with you on the booting up for 2013. And I'm so impressed that you have maintained your weight. Mine always has crept up. Well done!

    emoticon It looks like being a good year.

    Cheers, Clare

    I, as well, seem to have the fault of believing everyone is a good person. My husband, on the other hand, has the uncanny ability of knowing whether someone is the real deal or if someone where you need to run the other way fast! Thank goodness I have him around to ground me!

    Good luck on the reboot and 2013!
