Random... but.. worthy...

Sunday, October 02, 2011

For lack of an occasional expression of love, a relationship strong at the seams can wear thin in the middle. ~Robert Brault

I discovered this quote this morning, and it really spoke to me.. for me it goes beyond my personal relationships and into the relationship I have with myself! For far too long I have allowed myself to focus only on the world outside myself, in essence neglecting myself, but am so thankful that, that is no longer my truth! I am learning to love myself and getting stronger all the time!
Blessings to all who read this!!!

Seventy-five pounds and counting...

Friday, September 30, 2011

Weigh in day finds me down 1.2 pounds, which puts at 75.1 pounds since beginning my journey last Fall! (53.4 since joining Sparkpeople in February)!! I'm excited about the physical changes taking place with my body, and even more excited about the mental/emotional changes I'm undergoing!!! It's a great feeling knowing "I" am responsible for making me a healthier, happier person!
Everyone have a terrific day!!

Crunching numbers and guess what...

Monday, September 26, 2011

It occurred to me today, that I am on the downhill side of my weight loss goals, with 29.8 pounds to go to reach my ideal weight!! I must admit that I've grown so use to saying (and believing) I need to lose another 45 pounds when my weight loss goals come up that I hadn't really taken the time to crunch the numbers!!! Of course, I have my work cut out for me, but I am going to do this thing!!!!

emoticon Not yet, but getting there....

    Hooray for you! That is so exciting! I know what you mean. With Spark, I find myself getting so into the program that the numbers are kind of becoming secondary to the lifestyle. emoticon emoticon

Fall, beautiful, Fall!

Sunday, September 25, 2011

Yesterday morning I awoke to a brisk 59 degrees and decided to go for an early morning bike ride! The first couple of miles were brrrrrr... but by the time I was on my fourth mile I genuinely appreciated the cooler morning! I ended up clocking 7.07 miles in 40 minutes before heading home! Needless to say, it was wonderful riding the back country road and listening to the early morning sounds! I think I'll do it again today!

    I am still waiting for fall here. It is a beautiful time of year in Central Florida. I can tell that it is getting cooler north of here. The fall bird migration is a great sight and the lovely birds stop for southern hospitality and the abundance of food.

Getting closer...

Friday, September 23, 2011

Today is weigh in day and I'm happy to report that I'm down 2.2 pounds this week! I'm happy with my loss, as I had such a big loss (for me) last week and was a bit concerned that I might not see any changes this week. However, I chose to stay the course and fortunately the scale cooperated!!!!

Happy Fall to all!!! Have a terrific week-end! emoticon

    This morning had this crispness about it, everything smelled fresh and new. I love Fall, it is my favorite time of year. Congratulations on your weight loss--keep up the good work. I have hit a bump in the road; I plan on using the weekend to restart my motivation. Thanks for the inspiration. emoticon
