Back on the Road Again

So, I had a talk to my scale this morning and it laughed at me. It told me that I need to learn on how to be a loser...an effective loser. Looking at that pathetic 220 on the scale pissed me off but hey, who can I blame? I wallowed in holiday depression for weeks now because this will be the first year without my father for the holidays, don't have a solid job and look like blubber. When I see skinny people, I think back to what I used to look like and wonder what happened to me.
The pity choir has asked the usher to roll down the curtain because the bowing and thank yous are over. I may be doing fifty thousand things but I need to add in the working out.
For almost a week now, I've worked out on Wii's EA Active and it's been pretty effective. I forced myself to change my eating habits and it feels great. I remember why I went on Sparkpeople in the first place. I allowed so many excuses and curve balls to dictate my life thus far and I will not wait for some stupid New Year's Resolution to wait. I started fresh on Monday and it felt great. I'm able to get up earlier, stay up later, move around and after the first days of pain kicked out from muscle soreness, I feel like I gained a part of my spirit back.
I managed to complete 50 per cent of my business website within two days, cut off so many negative people within a month's time and started filtering out negativity. I'm still a work in progress but I'm slowly learning that you can't build Rome in a day. I don't care if I start this journey over ten times from now. As long as I remember to stay consistent and keep trying until I reach my goal AND MAINTAIN IT, that's what will happen.
Thank you for the support here on Sparkpeople. Who knows if I would have made it back on here.
