it's been a week

Saturday, January 31, 2009

The time sure did go by fast, it's been nearly a week since I added a blog.
Not to bad of a week. A few down moments.
Does anyone else feel afraid of the weight loss?
Do you feel pressure to do good because so many people are watching?
Does anyone feel that you let people done when you don't loose weight?
Does any one fear that getting to your goal is not going to be easy? or once you get there will you be able to maintain it.
Where can we co to get help for these and so many other fears.

I guess I had a few scary days? Not much has changed but feeling less scared....

Have a healthy week end>

    You are such a blessing, Kitt, to be willing to put yourself out there so transparently. I guess the only place we can go is to the One Who holds our future. God bless you richly, Kitt.

    Dear Kitt,

    You are so very open and honest. I love that about you.

    . . . afraid of weight loss? I cannot say as I have felt that, I have other fears though.

    . . . . pressure to do good . . . . yes, I do feel that, especially being a team leader. I have thought of stepping down several times. I don't feel like a leader. I just did the set up and organization of the team, I do not feel that I lead, especially at this point in time. BUT YOU . . . . YOU LEAD! You are so dedicated, you do stay in your calorie range, you do more than your share of exercise, you do make healthy choices, you do support others in their struggles, you do lead!

    . . . . let people down . . . . I think the person we let down, is ourselves. Everyone else on this site, has the same struggles, and know what it is all about. Most are not in a position to be judgmental, and most don't judge. We cannot let other people down, as this is their personal journey. No one can do it for us!

    . . . . . getting to your goal is not going to be easy . . . . . I am in full agreement there! I was at my goal once! That was about 28 years ago. I am not sure as to what point in time my weight became seriously unhealthy, but it has been for way too long. even if it were 15-20 years ago, I have lived almost 1/3 of my life being unhealthy.

    . . . . . maintain . . . . . . I only take one step at a time (usually) . . . I need to GET there first!

    . . . . . .where can we go to get help . . . . . . I think the resources right here are great, and the support of other people. One could also try 'googling' some of those fears and see what is out there.

    I have a new book, Shrink Yourself. I have not seriously read it yet, but have skimmed through, and know that I need to read it. I have stopped buying any self help and diet books since I joined SparkPeople. This is such a complete program, and I know that SparkGuy has plans to keep building on the success, in all facets of our lives.

    I love you Kitt, thank you for being my friend.

    Kitt you are such a beautiful person! and such inspiration to all. I do not have the answers for you as I am still struggling. I am so tired of saying I am starting again.......seams like that is all I do, start over and over and then I fall off and gain it all back. If I had lost a pound for every tear I have shed I would be a skinny person. But I do believe that someday it will click and I will be able to do this. It is what it is. You are where you need to be, here at SP helping all of us. Keep smiling and remember where you have been and where you are now !! Hugs to you, Kat

    :::nods::: to all of it :)

    i especially struggled with some of those feelings when i was co-leading a couple of teams... and would have to remind myself that in this case we are all members sharing similar journeys and struggles.... we lead by going through the struggle.

    it inspires me to see other people here walking the walk, despite their fears, despite setbacks, despite a bad day/week/month or 2, and daring to share that, because we are vulnerable in our weaknesses.

    but i think that's the gr8 thing about the teams & SP... we have people who say... come walk with me & let's do it together! It's different from going to counseling groups where a leader prompts others to do things a specific way. that's not what we get here...

    i find comfort in seeing you succeed and when you share your struggles, and hope that i can return the support and encouragement you always give me :)

    the rest of it... i think it's important to pay attention to our emotions and fears. to examine them. ask if these are real? and what we can do to resolve the things we are scared about....

    in the past, i went back to eating. somehow this time, i hope to deal with them!

    well, one healthy way or another. i think as we work through them, they change from fear to maybe uncomfortable and as we keep going, we become more comfortable as we get used to our new you & healthy things we do :)

    well, 'nuff4now. hang in Kitt! luv ya Girl! jules
