Today is my 3-yr SparkVersary! Feeling Good about myself!

Saturday, September 19, 2009

Well, dear friends, I've been gone a long time because of life's demands:
-- decluttering the house
-- preparing for much needed repairs from a flood and leaking roof (& house age)
-- Cyber marketing for my painting career - learning how to Twitter, LinkedIn and a new Facebook Fan Page
-- Beginning my professional e-newsletters about my painting career.
-- I haven't even begun my ART BLOG yet on my website but plan to in November

I am back on SparkPeople, trying to put my health first and trying to establish a balance in this hectic life of mine. I lost 60 lbs on SparkPeople... but during my absence/crazy schedule, I relaxed my choices and gained 20lbs back. WOW! How quickly the excess weight returns!!!

This week, I began eating fresh veggies and fruits again and already feel significantly better! Why do I tend to stop when things become hectic?

So here I am, feeling good about myself once again and making determined, healthy choices moment by moment. After all, for me, this weight loss journey is a challenge of my MIND! I must DETERMINE to make each choice healthy with NO EXCUSES!!!

All the best!

    It's hard to keep all your goals in focus, all at once, all the time. The important thing is to keep returning to those healthy habits and remembering, as you do, that they are lifetime choices! Way to go! --Marsha
