“It's not what we do once in a while that shapes our lives. It's what we do consistently.”
― Anthony Robbins

Day 4 of 100 days of weightloss is all about setting boundaries. It was not until I read a fellow teammate's blog did I get it emoticon
To be honest, if I had read her blog before yesterday it still would not have clicked. Yesterday, I spent a great deal of time considering each of my spark teams and what role they play in my weight loss journey. I formulated a plan to help me get what I want. I addressed the following areas: fuel intake, body movement, journaling and accountability.
Today, as I read my teammates blog on Boundaries, I realized that following my food planner high and low ends will be a plan I can live with for the rest of my life. I never got that last part when I was going to WW. I always had in my head that I would be able to go back to eating like I wanted when I got my weight all know how well that ended.
Now, I am at a time and place in my life where I have the tools and the desire at the same time. I am wiser and happier than before. I am ready to be consistent.

    Boundaries! You have given this much thought. I think evaluating your spark teams for what they contribute to your journey is most important. With too many teams one gets scattered trying to keep up. I have done this in the past and have 4 teams that I believe meet my needs.

    Still this was a difficult topic for me. One that took much thought and pondering.

    What are No S principles?

    I think it's really helpful to contemplate what our appropriate boundaries/adjustments are that we can live with and even enjoy. That chapter helped me understand my *sick day* boundaries, and that helped me release the guilt for not being 100%. Beyond sick days, I have truly special/special holidays, and mapped out alternatives for things like when I'm caught away from home w/o my food, etc... It is really liberating! Good job :)

    PS you can also look at the report threads on the '100 days' forum to get an idea of how others interpreted a lesson or assignment. There are also a LOT of journals about the lessons in the 'introduce yourself' forum - part of the old setup of the team.

    For me 'narrow road' means ALL the things I intend to do to lose weight, as in 'what I do on a good day'.
    'Wider road' means the minimum that I per se want to do, even on 'bad days' when I can't be perfect.

    Yes, maybe it's something about WW that leads us to thinking it's a temperoray thing... I had the same.
    I'm interested to hear how you like the No S because, even though I feel it's not for me, it still seems a very good 'method'.
