It's Been Almost a Year! - NO, it's now been two years!

Update: I have now been participating in SP for two years. Looking back at last year (see 2nd paragraph), I am sorry to say I have fallen down on the job. However, I have also returned because I know my SP friends will encourage me instead of beat me up! I have joined SparkCoach because I know I need that accountability. I have gained most of my weight loss back, but not all of it, for that I am grateful. One day at a time will get me back on track, and I know with the help of so many ...

One day at a time will get me back on track, and I know with the help of so many friends I will take the weight off!
It was a real shock to realize I have been participating in SparkPeople for almost a year. As I reviewed what I've been doing, I recognized that I do need a renewal in my commitment. I have set new goals, listed my plan to acheive the goals, and committed to myself and my Lord that I will stay accountable to doing what I have listed. While I had hoped to lose 52 lbs and did not succeed, I have decided I am still successful because I lost 27 lbs, did not gain weight, and did start taking baby steps on exercise and walking which I had never done. So I may not be one of the ones who move rapidly through this, but I am still happy with me because I am keeping on instead of giving up:)

Thanks for the goodie! Twins are doing well, I've been back and forth twice, resting up at home in between visits. Happy Thanksgiving!

Worry over the future breeds anxiety. Fretting over the past breeds depression. Both can stop our good movement forward and put us in front of the TV with a bad movie and too much of the stuff we don’t need to put into our bodies. That horrid cycle, of course, breeds regret and dread that brings us to more of the same. I believe that is called “insanity”.

Instead work to stay in the present taking the next step needed for living to the full the “now” that is before you, having learned better ways from past experience and pushing forward with hope that right action now will produce a better tomorrow. This is living life with power that produces a good outcome and protects our journey from wasting away.

Plan for the future, yes; but let the first plan be to live your best you in the now you have to possess.

I want to thank you so much for your words of encouragement! It gave my heart COMPLETE JOY to know that a person who doesn't know me would reach out to show kindness! The seeds of kindness you have planted will sprout and pay it forward! THANK YOU!!
