Starting Over

Friday, February 27, 2015

I was reading through my blogs. So interesting to look back and see how far I have come. I am still not at my goal weight, but that isn't what it is really all about. Is it? "smile" emoticon I'm still moving, pushing, and ready to be the best me I can be. emoticon
This was my first blog. I hope it helps someone. I know it helps me.

I have been on spark since January 2,2010. I came here first checking out the great workout videos. I really wanted to get back into being fit.
Is my lack of fitness my motivation?
I started my page looking for friends and accountability.
Is lack or gain of accountable friends my motivation?
I didn't like what I saw in the mirror.
Is vanity or image my motivation?
My daughters started calling each other fat and ugly.
Is my children my motivation?
My husband and I have challenged each other to a 20 pound lost for $20. the first one to lose 20 pounds wins $20.
Is competition and money my motivation?
All of these can motivate me at any given time. Yet for how long?
My true motivation comes from deep inside. A desire to be a better me and true survival. All these things can motivate me but it is what is deep within me that keeps me going. I am thankful for great friends and great tools but if I don't reach out and use them they are for nothing.Each day I have to realize that I can not do it alone. I first surrender it to my Lord and then let my day be guided to both like minded friends and to sharing myself with others.
This is my first blog. Feel free to ask any questions.

    Hey, I enjoy looking back at my old blogs. It shows not just weight loss, but changes in interests and how I've grown. It's pretty cool when you think about it. Very much like opening an old journal to read entries from long ago.
