Life is an Adventure,,, and I will be a Priority in my own Life!

2013 was a good year for me,,,,, and I lost a total of 23 pounds in 6 months (May to Nov)!

2014 is going to be even better and my goal is to lose a total of 50 pounds this year. I have the tools and know how to do it.... now I just have to use the lessons that I learned in 2013 and continue towards my goal.

Life is not easy,,, and going on this adventure,,,, changing lifestyle patterns and eating is not easy either.

Life is not easy,,, and going on this adventure,,,, changing lifestyle patterns and eating is not easy either.

Changes in life in 2012 were difficult to accept for me,,,,,, a pending divorce and being responsible for 3 children,,, living life as a single mother,,, no one to really turn to when the water heater breaks or the sprinklers fail,,, or the heater does not work. I kept turning to food to relax me,,, and that is simply not the purpose of food.

But 2013 taught me how I am in control of my eating and exercise routine. I learned that I have to make myself a priority in my own life! I have to be kind to myself when I fail and reward myself when I succeed. Although 23 pounds may not seem like a lot of weight loss,,, I celebrate it and look forward towards re-creating me,,, in a healthier and stronger me!

Thank you to all my Spark Friends.... I could not have done it without you...... and I will need you to walk with me on this journey,,, to encourage me ,,,, and kick me in the booty if I need it!

"The common conception is that motivation leads to action, but the reverse is true....action precedes motivation.
You have to "prime the pump" and get the juice flowing, which motivates you to work on your goals.
Getting momentum going is the most difficult part of the job, and often taking the first step is enough to prompt you to make the best of your day."

Hi sweetie! Thanks for your message mid June, sorry I've been slow to respond. Things have been challenging these last few months-hubby lost his job May 5 and a week later my little guy fractured his elbow and displaced it (required surgery to put in 2 pins). 7 weeks later he's recovering well, except for some nerve damage in his fingers that will hopefully heal with time. I only work part time and I had not planned to work at all in July and August, but I've been able to pick up a few hours weekly over the summer. I was very happy to hear of your vacation plans. I hope you are having a wonderful and much needed holiday with your family. Congrats on the weight loss! I am maintaining, but have now started to get back into daily exercise, as I'd like to make more progress this summer :) Look forward to hearing from you when you're back!
