Subtle changes...

Sunday, November 18, 2012

We always have a lovely fellowship hour after church on Sunday with people bringing all sorts of yummy home baking to share. I've been saying "no" to them b/c I'm trying to reach my goal, but something strange happened today. I said "no" again, but didn't feel deprived! I just felt grateful, happy and content.

That's HUGE progress. That kind of progress is greater than a pound lost.

    That is great progress. We too have a fellowship time after church and do a brunch - taking turns to bring whatever. Today they had 2 soups and lots of muffins, doughnuts, chips and such. I have no problem skipping most of the time. I did snitch one of the mini pretzels with the melted Rollo on top - even tastier than the ones with kisses on top - but TINY (a serving on mini pretzels is 16-20 depending on which kind you choose and the Rollos are about 25 calories each - so NOT a bad LITTLE treat).

    Congrats! We have a coffee hour after Church as well and I say no to most of the items. I have a gluten intolerance so it is easier for me to say no and no one gets upset that I didn't eat what they brought. I bring my own snack and then I eat with everyone. I am glad that you did not feel deprived.

1 more pound GONE!

Friday, November 16, 2012

I am so grateful to my SparkPeople support team!!!! Really, words can never express the gratitude I feel today. People e-mail me support when I'm feeling low. People e-mail me tips. SparkFriends are walking beside me virtually, on my journey.

Today I'm down one more pound, and it's steady as she goes for another day of eating "on-plan" and exercising toward my goal.

Hope you all have a wonderful day!!!

Grateful Sandi

Perseverance with a capital "P"

Thursday, November 15, 2012

142. Yep, I'm still 142. On the "up" side, I'm still 142! It's that "glass 1/2 full, glass 1/2 empty" thing!!! I've been trudging on...eating on-plan...exercising on-plan.

However, today I'm going to begin something NEW! Perseverance with HAPPINESS! Gee, I really do have so much to be grateful for. Place to live, wonderful husband, great kids, fun grand-kids, health...HEALTH! Yes, I have HEALTH! I am capable of climbing up and down 8 flights of stairs in one go. I can walk 5 miles now at a really good clip. Thanks to SparkPeople I enjoy making my bed and other seemingly mundane everyday activities. Today, I'm going to "skip" through my day, smiling and enjoying the moments!

When conviction is in short supply, it PAYS to hold on tight to my dreams.

Today, my clothes fit better, my tummy is smoother, and even my SHOULDERS feel different.

It PAYS to hold on tight to my dreams!!!
