Day #306 - 60 days to make it to one year

Monday, April 29, 2013

That's like two months to make some adjustments and keep it moving forward. I know I can - because I've made it this far by faith, determination and plenty of self motivation and Spark Friends motivation.

I rested yesterday no exercising but I'll be back at it today. I'm feeling a little soreness in my thighs after my walking/wogging Friday and Saturday but that's a positive thing.

I'm starting my morning off pretty good as a co-worker asked me this morning if I was losing weight and then she quickly changed that to you're losing weight right? emoticon Then she was like you're doing it by eating less, watching your portions huh? I was like yes and a lot of exercising. The funny thing is she had this ugly frowned up look on her face the entire time she was talking to me. I was thinking what's that all about...but it was like she was feeling pain as if she couldn't see herself exercising. Did I ever tell you all that this woman farted in my face one day? Yeah, she didn't know I was walking behind her or she thought I had turned off but even when she realized I was behind her she like smiled and kept going into the bathroom, while I'm in a fog wondering what the HEEEEYYYYY. Anywhoooo...I said to her even the littlest adjustments and 5 minutes more of movement helps you get closer to your goal. Yeah she's quite a bit overweight but...I try to encourage even though I know she talked about me like a dog to one of my friends (she didn't know we were friends at the time). But I hold no grudges and will encourage whomever I can.

My Pastor announced yesterday that on Tuesday nite he's going to be sharing with us and praying a special prayer for those that truly desire to lose weight. This road has been travelled so I'm not excited about it. I'm praying for guidance as to whether I want to get involved with it. Typically we have a group prayer for everyone that's committing to it. Then he'll tell you about what to eat and what we're going to do for "X" days. They'll talk about getting a scale and weighing in after church. That works for about a week and you never hear anything else about it. That's my problem with it. So I'm praying for guidance as to whether I should link up with this or keep doing me. I have no problem with the prayer but my focus is on being consistent and I don't want to start with ya'll and you're not going to do something to keep this going. Heck I'll even stand up and take the reigns if that means we're going to stick with it (I was asked before -but they just wanted to pick my brain but never let me lead or say anything) Come - on I need you as much as you're going to need my support!!!

Ya'll pray for me I try to hold my tongue a lot but you just don't know how many times this has been started by the person that knows very little about the journey but acts like they know a lot about ALL things. Help me Lord. I don't mine sharing the little wisdom I've gained through years of working through this, reading, blogging and sharing with my SparkFriends and just the knowledge that so many of you have shared here on Spark. Everyones journey is different ...Okay I'm about to vent again. Have a great day people.

    O my! I don't really know what to say about your co-worker. Encourage her if she needs it & listen when she wants to talk. Other than that, stay clear unless she wants advice or an exercise buddy! She seems like she might be trouble.

    I say continue to do what you need to do for you and cheer on their group from afar. As much as we want to encourage others, it can also be detrimental to our journey when other people don't live up to our expectations.
