Work in progress.....

Thursday, November 20, 2014

I have come to the conclusion that i cannot rely on man to make me better however to look to God and work within myself to focus on me and become a better person by looking within me and working on me to fix my flaws.


6 Weeks until......

Sunday, November 16, 2014

6 Weeks until the NEW YEAR!!! However its my 1/2 way mark until my 36th Bday!!! I have fallen and yet I keep getting up. I have 6 weeks to make some changes to get a head start of the New Year Wagon!!! I am on it, Losing weight is more than the physical, its also the emotional baggage that comes with it. I have learned so much about myself these past 3 years. I am learning to cope with loss in a different way, I don't if its worse to lose people to death or to just the change of journey in our own lives.... Either way I am learning that life goes on and we have to do what's best and cherish the experiences that we shared!!

I am glad to hear that you are learning things along your journey. That's what it's about at the end of the day. Learning and adjusting as we go along.

Best of luck continuing on your journey - sparkmail me if you need to offload some of that emotional baggage :)

So far since I have been working out changes that I have noticed include :

My tummyskin is pulling side to side when I do sit ups or the elliptical. I take that as its getting smaller and when I wear certain shirts they no longer hug my tummy like they used to and they no longer seem short but they have somehow gained some length.

I am now making the conscious thoughts of what I am going to eat, however what's going to fuel my body properly.

Little steps help to encourage you to make more little steps to see more positive changes!!!

I want to succeed. I am going to reach my goal!!!!

Counting down....

Monday, July 14, 2014

Why does it seem as if when the new year and our birthdays come is the time we really reflect and vow to make the new year a better year than the year before. I am counting down until my birthday on Sunday and what great way to start it on the beginning of a new week, new age, new year. I am just wondering what am I going to do to make the new year better than the previous year has been. January I set out to accomplish some goals before this birthday but I have not reached them.... am I disappointed? Yes and No. I am disappointed because of this yo-yo ride on this weight loss journey however at the same time we all know what they say if you are tired of starting over stop giving up. So I vow for this new year to stop giving up to keep pushing until I reach my goal. To surround myself with others who are living a healthy lifestyle so that I don't fall off of the wagon. And when I do reach my goal to keep pushing to maintain and stay a part of SP so that I can help others but also help myself at the same time. Today I saw a man in a wheel chair working out in the gym and here I am...... fully able yet I have not taken care of myself as I should!!! Its time for change. I have been doing well but I could be doing better.......working on me to get better, to be better and live better!!

    You definitely have the right attitude there! Keep the inspiration and each time we consider giving up we should remember the man in the wheel chair. emoticon
