A Fresh Start!

I'm looking to get a fresh start on life. It's time to focus on me and capitalize on all of the positives that already exist in life - if i slim down in the process, it's a total bonus!

I recently had a pretty serious health scare and it put a lot of things in perspective. All of my metabolic levels were elevated, my BP was 140/100 and I was having chest pains. Since my father passed suddenly of a massive heart attack at age 41, I was immediately ordered a stress test. As the ...
I'm looking to get a fresh start on life. It's time to focus on me and capitalize on all of the positives that already exist in life - if i slim down in the process, it's a total bonus!

I recently had a pretty serious health scare and it put a lot of things in perspective. All of my metabolic levels were elevated, my BP was 140/100 and I was having chest pains. Since my father passed suddenly of a massive heart attack at age 41, I was immediately ordered a stress test. As the ripe old age of 35, my results came back negative and my eyes were opened to the fact that everything that was happening to me was of my own doing and I have the power to change it.

So HERE I GO~ I'm currenlty following the Charles D'Angelo plan from his book, Think and Grow Thin. It feels a bit drastic and prescribed but at about 1300 calories a day, it's exactly what I need to get #backontrack.

"One of the most difficult parts of changing how you live and how you eat is believing that change is possible.
We all say we believe that, but many of us, deep down in our hearts believe that it's possible for other people, but not for us.
That other people can do it, that the glowy warm life we imagine is for other people, not for us.
We have an unconscious belief that we can't do it, it's hopeless, and so, on some level, we stop making an effort.
We lapse into the way it always was or is. But change really is possible.
And it really does take a fierce kind of longing, and a fierce kind of love for yourself.
For the life you know is possible. Ask yourself what you love most of all.
Do you love your life? And are you willing to take action on your own behalf?"

"In terms of days and moments lived, you'll never again be as young as you are right now, so spend this day, the youth of your future, in a way that deflects regret. Invest in yourself. Have some fun. Do something important. Love somebody extra. In one sense, you're just a kid, but a kid with enough years on her to know that every day is priceless."

"I believe that we are who we choose to be.
Nobody's going to come and save you. You've got to save yourself.
Nobody's going to give you anything. You've got to go out and fight for it.
Nobody knows what you want except for you.
And nobody will be as sorry as you if you don't get it.
So don't give up on your dreams."
-Unknown

"Transformation is not five minutes from now; it's a present activity. In this moment you can make a different choice, and it's these small choices and successes that build up over time to help cultivate a healthy self-image and self esteem."

"Make a pledge to yourself right now, to declare that you are worth your time and energy."

Just stopping by to wish you a happy, healthy and fun Summer, Sparkfriend! Keep making those daily choices that will help you move closer to your goal, one step at a time. Right now there are just a little over 90 days until the first day of Autumn. Imagine how much progress you can make by then if you just keep doing your best each day this Summer! Don't forget....you are worth the effort!
Hugs,
Pixie

"Every day of our lives we are faced with a choice.
The choice to BE, or to be truly AMAZING.
Ask yourself if what you're doing today is getting you closer to where you want to be tomorrow.
No matter who you are, or what you do, you absolutely, positively do have the power to TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE."
-Lorna Jane
