I didn't want to come back on here again till I had good news. I'm back!

Sunday, August 16, 2009

On my last blog post, July 27th, which seems like forever as a long time ago. I wrote that I don't seem to honor "tomorrow" as ever going to happen. As in, "Tomorrow I will do something about my weight".

Well, I was rather discouraged at the time I wrote the blog, but I was truthful, and straight forward in searching my abilities, that I wasn't finding that certain PROD that was going to get me to do something effective to make changes....yet.

Then the pouring in of major Positive Messges from all the wonderful Spark People started. Everyone is so wonderful to jump right in and support anyone in need. I know I can't help myself either when it comes to helping others. It is so trememdous when I feel the support and postive vibes and helpful suggestions directed at me.

I felt all turned around with such a different feeling than when I wrote my message initially. I now felt like I had the "Power" to change. I had people supporting me I didn't want to let down.

Okay, but this can be a scarey feeling too! Geeze, I didn't want to let 'them' all down. Here I was now with "Accountability" facing me.

With the renewed strength of positive thinking with an "I can do it!" attitude, I wrote the comment something to the effect of, "I'll be back 't-o-m-r-r-o-w' with good news that I made an effort and have changed" . This was my idea anyway. But I used that dreaded word again,... Tomorrow. Yikes, It didn't happen.

I didn't come back into SparkPeople the next day to tell all how the wonderful support had made me change and I had success. Instead I did nothing and regretted it.

So, I clammed up and didn't return until I had some good news to share. No, probably not the thing to do, but I felt badly that I would disappoint anyone.

I knew I would come back. I just wasn't sure when.
I'm glad I'm back. I have lost 4 lbs now and my daughter has lost weight too and we're both very happy with the progress. I am not sure how to record the weight loss since I still haven't officially started to learn the steps of SP pages.

Anyway, that is what has been happening with me. I am glad to be back. Thank you to all who commented on my last blog with the powerful positivity. You all made a difference.

    If you go to the Start page, on the left there is a box with the heading, 'My Tools'. The 3rd button down is 'Weigh In'. Click there, but make sure you don't click the 'check progress' part. That's for later when you want to see all the reports you put in. You'll get to a page where you can put in your weight and several other measurements. I would encourage you to record some of the others as well as your weight - many of them are better pointers to improved health than the number on the scale is!
    You can do it - and you can keep it up!
    TODAY is the first day of the rest of your life!
