It Has to Be ME

Saturday, March 09, 2019

So the past six months or so I've been "chasing" some of the newer weight-loss options.

The latest one was working ok. Until I got sick. The crud has really been going around this part of the country (maybe others, too).

Now, I feel so far behind that I'll never catch up with the program.

And that made me realize that I can't rely on a program, because life is gonna happen. Like getting sick. Like a death in the immediate family. Things happen.

I need to rely on ME. I "know" what to do. It's just a matter of doing it.

Ok, so it's really a matter of making it easy for me to just do it.

But the bottom line is that If it is to be, it is up to me.

Over the past few years, I have learnt the lesson that I'm worth it. That's a lesson I thought I'd never learn, and it's amazing that I have that one down.

Now I have to learn to Believe in myself that I can do it.

So, back to my staple SparkPeople.com. Free. Can be used in any way I choose to use it. I HAVE TO USE IT. There - that's the bottom line.

So, I weighted myself this morning. It's not pretty, and it's eye-opening. I've been deceiving myself the past year, thinking that I've been "doing". But I'm right where I was a year ago.

So, now it begins. Baby steps. Believing in me - that I CAN do this.

    I have just come to the same conclusion - I am exactly where I was last April! It is discouraging. But, it is time for a fresh start, it's Spring. Let's Do This, it's time!
