Can anyone please tell me when Tomorrow is?

Monday, July 27, 2009

I constantly tell myself I'll start TOMORROW. Just seems tomorrow never comes. Dang it!
I weighed myself and I am still the same as I have written in here when I started Sparkpeople. Thank goodness for that anyway, that I haven't added more lbs to lose.

Ah, a positive in the negativeness I am feeling right now.

I want to jump in with both feet and get a really good start on this Spark program.

There is also this lil word that keeps creeping into my vocabulary..... 'but'.... seesh! So small yet it has power. Or at least I allow it to have power over me.

"I'll do this...but...."

My excuses are still very front and center in my life. Hmmm... I really need some serious adjustments made.

Ux turns around....~ kick my butt please n thanks someone.... I can't kick my own butt it seems. lol
~ dang it's big enough! LOL at myself.

ah, humor helps relieve the stress of it all for now.
*sigh again....

    Everything that you all had to say is Powerful Input for me that truly MEANT A LOT to me. I honor you all and your helpful suggestions. Your support is so wonderful and encouraging.

    It is however 'me, myself, & I' that need to "DO" something to move in the right direction.
    This is still a struggle but I will overcome the roadblocks and persue.

    4 pounds less is an encouragement too. :-)

    Thank Sweet SparkPeople!

    Hey - I have been wondering how you have been doing!! You know - it's so easy to come up with excuses - why else would I have 70 pounds to lose! LOL. One thing that might help is for you to sit down and really think about WHY you want this - WHY DO YOU WANT IT FOR YOU - no one else - just YOU. Really look inside and I believe that you will find tomorrow, today.

    Every day is a struggle and every day is a new start - I am confident that you will be fine - you can do it.

    I'm here - Right around the corner.

    Take care.

    Ux, "Tomorrow" is here - embrace it. The new you is now, ready to bust out and
    getting going on this revised (and better) lifestyle change. I too was waiting for
    tomorrow to come. Every night I would go to bed, telling myself "tomorrow, I'm going to start" and then I would wake up and plonk a piece of chocolate bar in my mouth (the first of many mindless plonkings of calories throughout the day).

    When I started here a month ago, I confess, that I was not overly optimistic - I thought I would sign up, follow through with some of the suggestions, lose interest, and yep, fail to find my 'tomorrow' once again. Surprisingly, after a couple of days, I became more involved here on the site and this fed my
    motivation to keep going, and become more involved in actually living
    this new lifestyle (not just going through the motions). My tomorrow did come - it is now.

    Best of luck to you!

    Thanks SO MUCH!!! SnapHappee, ThinWithin, RaggedyAnn, Heffiew, for the literal kick-in-the-butt.
    Your words are so helpful. It is Tomorrow, today. I am not doing myself/body any good ignoring and putting off the exercise and healthy eating.
    I'll blog tomorrow how much you helped me today.

    Tomorrow is here that is for sure. It is so easy to give into tempation and just put it off, but you are doing this for you first and foremost. If you need more support turned to all your friends here at spark! I have found that this support group is so much bigger than I have at home and it has helped me ward off the tomorrow's and live for all the TODAY's! This is the only chance we get so it is time to live it the way you want to live it! The healthy way.

    Hi! There is a book/program I'm using called "Thin Within"..I found mine for .50 at a thrift store. I was losing weight too slowly on it because most days I wasn't following the principals and decided to try other things, but I've gone back to it and while I'm not having "good" days everyday, it teaches you to forgive yourself, correct yourself and move on. It's a "hunger/fullness" plan. You don't have to deprive yourself of ANY of the foods you love. The word "diet" is not even in their vocabulary. I think you really might get some good use out of it. It's written by Judy and Arthur Halliday. There is a lot of scripture throughout the book, but even for people who aren't "religious", I think this book could be very beneficial by just following the principles in it. All it teaches you is to pay attention to your body, eat slowly, savor every delicious bite and pay attention to when you're truly satisfied.. if this plan is followed, eventually, you will make it to your God-given weight. Just knowing I don't have to use the word "diet" anymore is so freeing! I hope this helps.

    I know all about "tomorrow" and waited too long for it to come, resulting in even more pounds. Make "tomorrow" today and everyday, procrastinating does nothing but trapping us in our own fat body, our own prison! Keep on Sparkin' on to a new heathlier, thinner you!

    Tomorrow has arrived! No more excuses...there are no excuses good enough to overrule your health. You CAN do this - TODAY!
