Be a habit rabbit!

When I look at other people who seem to find fitness easy I remind myself that they are just the same as me and not superhuman.
The only difference between me and them is that they have already made fitness a habit.

When something's habitual you don't have to think about it, it just happens!

This I CAN Do

In 2001 I weighed 190 pounds and I am 5ish.
I looked into the mirror and saw a fat girl looking back at me. Her eyes didn't sparkle and her mouth neither showed a smile or a frown.
I sat down and cried.
What had I done to myself and why? Right then I knew I wanted to change.

No one will do it for you

Tired of ostracism? Rejection? Loneliness? You are the only one who can make a change. Do it. Follow spark people's plan. Exercise, and count your calories. It will work, if you put in the effort. Or, you can remain lazy and feel sorry for yourself.

NEVER give up!

Never give up, fall down 7 times, get up 8! Take a deep breath, stand back and access what you need to change and go forward full force.

What I've Learned Along the Way

I keep a journal with what I call little insights, those 'aha' moments. It can be about anything from tips I read about keeping the dryer screen clean to something really big like realizing how I use my obesity to keep me from even trying whatever because I'm so afraid to fail.

Share your goals!

In the past, my decision to get healthy (working out) was something I pretty much kept to myself. This time, I told so many people about my goals! My hubby, my daughter, my best friend... and I posted the goals here on SP. What a difference this has made. Now others support and encourage me.

being believed in

It's one of the most known but little appreciated parts of raising a healthy, happy child. Most successful adults commonly credit their success with people in their lives who they felt "really cared for and believed in them".
