Educate For Success, Don'T Start Half-Cocked For Sure Failure!

This Sparked Me!

I have set my official start date for January 2, 2013. That does NOT mean I am WAITING until then to work on my GOALS for SUCCESS! I have been working on researching & EDUCATING myself on ways to change my eating habits, and my daily routine & lifestyle, and exploring SparkPeople website.

I have already lost 6 pounds in 10 days...with another 21 days before I *officially* begin MY journey!

WHY I'm waiting until January 02, 2013 to *officially* begin my journey is MY choice for MY journey! NO one has the right to question MY motives for MY life & health! IS *MY* life, and ONLY I *control* it!

    BBLESA Maybe we could help each other. I'm fickle when working on this alone.

I really identify, too, with BettyJ's choices statement. I seem to have a negative reaction towards other people making weight-loss demands or 'challenges'. Encouragement is the key, I think.

I have put a small plastic toy leopard/cat to symbolise my right and ability to make my own choices. It sits above the sinkbench in the kitchen to remind me that I think and do for myself, just like a cat.

So now I am taking control. Betty what have you changed to lose so much weight in 10 days? I have just re-started and all help is gratefully received. emoticon
