Me in pink. I am so huge!





Just think...I was so happy I could fit into these shorts, again. I was feeling thin!

Now is when.

Oct 12, 2014.... Two months till the holidays, and I am back to where I had started! 201.4... Again! It takes more than hoping, and more than doing something tomorrow. I am so not perfect, but I am not giving up on me, and I have a vision of walking into my closet, and being able to wear everything in there. A new vision, and a new goal. Count my blessings, not my pounds.

Oct 12, 2014.... Two months till the holidays, and I am back to where I had started! 201.4... Again! It takes more than hoping, and more than doing something tomorrow.

Count my blessings, not my pounds.


Feb. 28, 2014. Two months past the holidays, and I am still gaining and losing the same three pounds. I will commit myself to health and weight loss. This weight has got to come off, and I am determined to do so. I will log, every day. I will keep my goal visible by making it a monthly goal rather than a years end goal. I will stand up for myself, and my wishes.

I will work on my inner voices that cave at the drop of a hat. I will learn dialogue that enhances and encourages from within. I will learn to be my own warrior.





Dec. 6, 2013. I can't believe I started my road to recovery during the holidays! All of the food and drinks and indulgences! What was I thinking? I was thinking that it was time to commit to myself. Last Holiday Season I got derailed from my life of health, and I had been wandering through the SP Blogs seeking the way back to my earlier commitment . There is some poetic justice that I found my spark in the season in which I had lost it. Only, this season, I am not the same person I was last year. I have better tools and ideas, coming from my fellow sparkers, and I am not alone in the holiday shred of 2013... Countdown to New Years 2014.

Nov. 29, 2013. I am starting a New Trend for myself. I am no longer carrying guilt and I will stop myself each time I mentally downplay my life and progress. I am no longer going to apologize when I lose weight faster than my friends, nor join them when they start packing on the pounds.

This is my life. I will enjoy it to the fullest. I will lose weight, again. I am pretty good at it.

I will deal with issues as they arise, as I have finally accepted the fact that weight is an outer manifestation of inner problems. Thank goodness I am finally willing to stop my diet mentality and start my lifestyle changes, for life and health. The happiness is now, not after I lose weight.

I am dusting myself off, picking up my sword, and walking on to my victory . Again. I will do it again, and again, and again. I will get my encouragement from my fellow sparkers , as usual. Fall down six, get up seven. I am getting back up.

I am not doing this perfectly, and I am up and down each day!

I will not give up. I will not stop trying. I will be kind. I will be healthy. I will be gentle as I learn the nuances of weight loss and maintenance , rather than the old yo-yo habits of yore. Joyfully getting back on track, thankful for the new chance each day.

My Goals:
My goal is to get the fat off of my body, and enjoy the benefits of my better lifestyle.
My second goal is to maintain a healthy weight, a healthy eating style, and a healthy focus on life.


My Program:
I will no longer lie to myself as to why I am fat. I am fat because I have trained myself to eat compulsively. I am fat because I allow myself to eat endlessly. I am fat because I allow myself to eat crap.
I will be the lean girl by eating whole, healthy foods. I will be the lean girl by logging my food and water. I will be lean by eating selectively.

Other Information:
If you always eat what you always eat, you will always weigh what you always weigh. You are the change.

Thank you for leaving me a goodie - I appreciate you taking the time to stop by my page. I'm trying to remember "23 1/2" as motivation to get up and move more. emoticon emoticon
