Day 817 - Something Completely Different

Thursday, February 23, 2017

I've been posting a lot of downer messages lately, and looking back over them, and the responses I'm still receiving, lifts me up while at the same time making me sad that it seems there is a lot of negative in my life when in reality life is really awesome!

So here's a positive story that came out of one of my other favorite health websites (don't worry, SparkPeople, you're still number one) that I thought was important enough to share.

Read it now. I'll wait...

Wasn't that inspiring? Entry #5 really hit home with me. Learning to love myself with all my perceived flaws - even after almost 2 years in maintenance - is a daily struggle. But I'm getting there, and I do love me for me. And that's why life is so awesome!

Go be awesome today! And Keep Sparking!

    emoticon Article!

    Sorry I'm late getting to it. I had surgery and once again I have been blessed...no paralysis, no lopsided face, no slurred speech and no cancer.

    Know that you are loved by many and admired by many more who are uncomfortable with the word love. Now go out there and inspire yourself as you have and will inspire so many others.

    That's the imp of the perverse that lives inside us after we remake ourselves.

    Thanks, Steve - that was a great blog and the article is inspiring. As an anxious person myself, I could relate to it well. Life is a tight-rope and during times like the present, we wobble and get spooked - let's move forward one footstep at a time!

    Hey...my sweet motivating friend...I really enjoyed this. I have to read more of these type of stories to remind myself that yes...the road to weight loss is long and windy but it is SO worth it to just stay on track.

    You are an amazing role model. I'm just SO proud of you as a magnificent human being! You walk the talk and are an inspiration to all who come in your radius. emoticon

    I'm almost jealous of your students for being able to be inspired by you each and every day. They are lucky duckies for sure!

    Just remember you are a winner in everything you do and you always will be! emoticon

    Wow! Thanks for sharing that, Steve! It was inspiring and motivating! I am at that stage in my weight loss with the excess skin and the crepey skin! I am learning to accept it as a trade off! I would rather have this than the fat! I feel better in this body and it looks and feels so much better in clothes. I am getting used to being smaller! It's great! I am doing more and getting around better. Working on my balance, which is not great, but not giving up!
    Thanks for sharing this, Steve....
    Hugs,
    Mary

    Yes. That was inspiring. Thanks for sharing it.

    I think I've been experiencing more anxiety than I've realized. Found myself in tears at work today. Being that you work in a community college environment like I do, you know all too well the challenges we're facing right now. Yeah. "Deep breath, Jeanne. Get to bed early tonight. You don't fare as well when you're sleep deprived."

    Sure hope the flooding situation is easing.
