DAY ONE - APRIL HAS ARRIVED

Tuesday, April 01, 2014

So April has arrived, and along with that came much needed rain.
As we are nearing the end of another BLC, I have decided to look back, and see where I stand in my life at the moment.
I have come to realize that no matter how much you fall down, there is always someone to help you up again.
Friendships are important....and this includes friends you have never met. I meet a wonderful group of friends on this BLC journey. Thank you Mustangs, you rock. emoticon
And finally, the number on the scale may be important, but its also the little things around you, that make your healthy journey worthwhile. ie saying no to that slice of cake, drinking that glass of water, not because you have to, but because you want to, or like me fitting into a smaller size jeans.
I could post a whole lot more, but then again everyone's journey is different.

Love Letter To Myself

Sunday, February 16, 2014

My dearest Bronwyn emoticon

I write this letter to encourage you. I know deep down you have a longing to lose weight. I also know that, if you put your mind to it, you can.
I want you to repeat those words everyday.....I Know I CAN. Promise me you will do that.
What I love about you is your smile, you willingless to help others. I want you to love yourself just for being you.
Remember, you can't expect others to love you, if you don't love yourself first.

Love you, and I know you can achieve anything you set your mind to.

Love
Me emoticon

THE SCALE AND NUMBERS

Friday, February 07, 2014

I look at the scale, and I wonder, will the numbers ever make me happy. Will the number ever give me hope…..or will they just remind me of what damage I have done to myself and my body. emoticon
I currently weigh 132.6kg, which if you do a conversion is almost 300lbs. I have been watching the Biggest Loser via YouTube, and think to myself; is that what I look like? Is that what people see, when they look at me? A person with no prospect; or hope for the future. Yes, it can be very daunting at first, but then, when I watch more episodes, I realize that if they can do it, so can I.
Its time for me to stop feeling sorry for myself, to distance myself from the negative people, who say I will never do it , surround myself with positive people, and find my positive attitude It’s time for me to get moving. emoticon
I look at the scales, and I know the answer to the above question…….Yes, the number will make me happy, but I need to put in the effort, otherwise it will just be a bad reminder.

    emoticon One step at a time my friend. Just start with ONE thing and stick to it then add another one. You'll get there eventually slow and steady is the best way. Just go 5-10 pound increments it's achievable it really is. It's why we are here right? If it were easy we wouldn't be here. Think of how much stronger you'll be. I say this to you as I do to myself because I have to remind myself too.

    You can do this!! I did, 20 months ago I weighed 310 pounds, I am now around 170. Just make small changes, track your food,cut down on sweets and greasy foods. Start to move more. Just do what you can now. As the weight is lost and muscle is gained you feel better. Then the number on the scale doesn't matter. The size and comfort of your clothes do. The energy and stamina matter. The more effort you put into it the better you feel! But seriously start with small changes and build!! emoticon

    You definitely can do this! Though personally I wouldn't worry so much about the numbers on the scale but on how YOU feel--how much energy you have, how you feel in your clothes, etc. But I've know several people on sparks who have lost over 100 pounds--if they can do it, you can too!

    YOU CAN DO THIS! Please visit my Sparkpage and look at success. The Biggest Loser is a fun TV show to watch but it is not realistic. It takes a while to do this. I began my journey about two years ago. I was 357 pounds. I am now at 123. I lost my weight making small goals, no not goals, commitments, at a time. If you look at the big picture you will kill your motivation and weighing everyday is also going to kill your motivation. I have said many many times and this is I guess my favorite saying: Small victories win battles and won battles win wars. This journey is like a war between the people we are and the people we will become. One step at a time. Okay? You CAN do this. Remember that the leaders of this team are here for you and we are only a Sparkmail away. God bless and have a fantastic day. emoticon Judi.

    The key is not letting the scale dictate what you are doing. Keep moving and tracking your nutrition. It takes time to get your body ready to commit to losing weight - remember, we didn't put it on overnite, so it won't come off overnite. You can do work your way to better health and a really awesome future!

RHOOK20047 2/7/2014 8:42AM

    Yes, you can do it! Remember that those people on the Biggest Loser are doing nothing else but working on weight loss for 3 months at the ranch. I don't know about you, but I have life that gets in the way, however, I make myself small, attainable goals. I start by saying I wanted to lose 5 pounds. After 8 months, I have lost 44 pounds. Not a Biggest Loser loss, but one that I am proud of, and that I did with determination. I have over 100 more pounds to go, but if I stick with it,and keep making my small goals, I know that I will achieve my goal of normal weight in due time. Forgiveness for one's self is the biggest obstacle to overcome at first. But I am sure you can do it! emoticon

    It's amazing that we never realize what we have done to ourselves till we step on the scale.
Don't think about how much you have to do, think about taking steps. One thing I read was to make small goals for yourself. It's makes it feel much less overwhelming.

Good luck!

  Losing weight is not easy - we need to take one step at a time. Try 10 mins walk and then add more to it. Stay focus and you will succeed
