Well what have you got to lose

So trying again, after the millionth time! Surely something in my brain has to click eventually! I've got lots of weight to lose, and lots to gain - I'm not ready to give up on this yet.

Thanks for the bloglove on my She's Launched post. It really WAS a great way to spend the afternoon and I did it yesterday too - in the sun and the wind. It was harder the second day because my tender muscles were sore but I'll grow used to it. Best of all - this paddle doesn't cause blisters like the canoe one.
I sure do emoticon me some kayaking.

Thanks for the bloglove on my Beck Diet Solution post. the truth is - I am/was already doing much of what she suggests and at this point I haven't yet discovered anything I hadn't heard before. so MUCH of success in this weight and body effort comes when something inside you says "I'm ready". Well. I'm ready.

emoticon & emoticon say Hi and Thanks for the bloglove on their post about the emoticon . Ain't it the truth that we love to blame our equipment when we ought to be looking at the operator. It's the same with our weight - A well stocked kitchen and a good gym are a great help but if we don't walk the walk - we're just going to sit the sit and get bigger and bigger. LOL. Thank goodness for our sparkfriends cheering us on.

The pups and I say Hi! and Thanks for the bloglove on my
After 100 Days - A Subjective Assessment post. It's true - I found the long challenge and the egotistical motivation somewhat unrewarding but I did finish what I started and the whole thing has given me time to think of Other Things I Might Try. For sure, Callie and Juno are glad I spent so much time with them.

I don't know how you got so smart, but no matter how it happened, I'm so glad that you share your wisdom with us. It always baffles me how we can be so hard on ourselves, but we are always so kind to others. When my friends fall off track or overeat I tell them that they can turn it around and not to feel bad, but when I do it I tell myself I'm ridiculous and that I can't believe I would do something so horrible. Just like I see how far I have to go and others see how far I have come. I am definitely working on how I talk to myself and learning to be kinder, but it's a process. emoticon
