I have been on SPARK since May of 2008. I was inactive for a time while I was battling cancer, but I've been back quite awhile. And in almost 8 years on SPARK, I've watched other people set goals & meet them. I've watched people come & go. And I've watched other people (myself included) stagnate. So what is the difference? Where is that (cliché) SPARK that makes some people DO IT & others NOT do it as well? Am I just stuck in a cycle of inertia? And if I'm not then what is holding me back? These are all questions I've asked myself time & time again. So maybe it's time to get out of my head & just WORK. Don't think. Don't mental. Don't ponder. Just DO. (Thank you Nike!)
I set a goal on 11-10-15 to lose 5% of my weight. It shouldn't have been hard. It shouldn't have been a threat to my well being. But as of yet, I haven't reached that goal. I have about 7 more pounds to go. I'm making that my March goal. 4 full weeks to lose 7 pounds. Of course I will take more if they happen. But for right now, I am focused on these 7 pounds & ridding myself of them.
There's another 5% goal behind this one just waiting to be started. And it's not going to take 5 months to complete.
So many of you inspire me...DAILY...I want to be in that cool group. I want to be in the successful group. I want to be proud of ME for a change...
