Finding Myself

Thursday, February 20, 2014

I have been feeling quite down this month and I know this has a lot to do with my weigh loss not going in the right direction. I have been reading the motivational articles and things are starting to make sense. emoticon emoticon
I think I have been to hard on myself and this has slow down my progress. I read this article " Going Through the Emotions: Why It's Worth the Trouble" and it really hit home for me. emoticon
I know it is ok to be sad, to have bad days, and to blame myself for everything...but now I must let that go and move forward. The results may not be fast but I know it will happen. emoticon mm emoticon emoticon emoticon
So today I start to find myself and work my way back to where I was before I fell into this "funk". Let's go I can and will move towards a better me for me!!!!!!

    I know that we all have bad days here and there and to deny them doesn't make them go away. The GOOD thing is you ALWAYS have your sparky friends...good days and bad and you know you ALWAYS have me cheering you on and congratulating you for the beautiful woman and friend that you are! sweet and beautiful friend! emoticon emoticon

    You're definitely not alone. Have been going through a bad spell myself and one day this week seemed to make all the difference in getting me back on track again. Stay the course with your determination as best as you can and accept little slips up as just that . . . little in the big scheme of things. Hug, hug -- Evelyn

    Oh...hugs to are not alone...I started off at the beginning with results...everything seem to just click and now here I am in the middle of my journey with some struggles and some scale frustrations!! I so agree with you...the motivation articles on spark really help when we go through difficult or sad or frustrating times. I'm going to go and read the one you listed!! I want to remind you that you have half the battle won when you acknowledge that you are having a hard time....share it with others....and go seek support to keep moving forward....SOOOO....Woo Hoo for you!! You will find your new strength and courage to go on one day at a time...I just know you will....and so will I!! I like to remind myself that getting healthy and losing weight is a life long journey!! Keep up the awesome effort to take care of you!!!

    I completely agree when you say it's "ok to be sad, to have bad days" That is bound to happen and you really can't control it but you have it in your awesome power to keep from blaming yourself for everything. That is the road to a destructive pity party that is of no value to anyone. When there is little weight loss progress you don't have to blame anyone. When it happens to me, I do everything I can to distract myself from those thoughts of sadness. I force myself to smile emoticon and maybe give out a little chuckle. emoticon Maybe it can work for you too.

    Take a look at this article. It has some good ideas!
