8-11-08 - Feeling Proud

Monday, August 11, 2008

Our challenge was to blog once a week so here I am again. One of my mini goals for August was to stop beating myself up. I have to treat myself the way I treat other. I have caught myself several times just as I was about to call myself fat or ugly or something I would never say to someone else. I can actually say that it truly has helped me gain some confidence. I was the one making me feel bad. I am learning to eat properly and I am proud of myself. This is the longest I have really stuck with a diet I enjoyed. I have spread the spark and even had a few co-workers get excited about SP. I have noticed that I can say no when I am not hungry and I feel better throughout the day when I actually eat. I have much more stamina when I am working out. I am happier. I am losing weight which is good but I haven't been focusing on that as much so I can say that I am truly making progress. I have to say that my most supportive team is the Goonies 2008. All the team member are Awesome and let me say that WE ROCK. We reach out to every member who needs help. We have activity on our team that keeps everyone active and able to connect with one another. It is true that I don't really know any of these people but they offer more support than any one I have ever really known. I am making progress and feeling good about myself. Wow who would have thought that all I had to do was stop bad mouthing myself!!!! emoticon
