I sometimes get discouraged.

Wednesday, June 15, 2011

I sometimes get discouraged.
I sometimes lose sight of har far I have come, and only see the long road stretching ahead. It is usually a thing that sets me off on this shortsightedness.
This time it was because when I saw 179 on the scale on a day last week, I hurried up and put it onto my little tracker, because it felt so good.
But I know from times past that seeing it one day doesnt mean it will be there the next. And it isnt supposed to be all about the number on the scale, I know, I know. But.
It still has power over me.
Heres looking at the road behind.
This year, which is only half way over, I have gone from size 20 to size twelves.
I have lost 34 lbs. Thats 15 percent off of me.
Thats quite alot of bags of sugar. emoticon
I have lost lots and lots of inches.
I have made exercise into something of a habit.
I dont plod up the stairs anymore,I lightly go up them, effortlessly.
I enjoy clothes shopping again. A Lot. emoticon
It is half a year and I am still here, I havent said oh the heck with it, its summer, like I have in the past.
I admit, summer is harder for me, I would rather sit outside and read a book than anything else, But I am aware of that and I will not allow myself to be lazy all the time.
So yeah, there is a road ahead of me, but it will always be ahead of me no matter what and as I walk it I want to be headed to a place thats better for me, where shopping is fun and stairs are not for plodding and I feel healthier.
I know we all get this way, I just need to reaffirm sometimes that I have already figured this thing out and its working.

    Hi Melly
    Thanks for your support, I just seem to have to talk myself around every once in a while, But at least I recognize that now and address it before it becomes a major problem.

    I'm sorry you were feeling down lately. It was good to hear you mention all the great things you're achieving by Sparking, write them down and hang them UP, if you need to!!
    I know what you mean about wanting to relax during the summer. Try to think about shopping with your daughter, and those terrific pictures of you two!! You are really working hard, be proud!!
    Lately, I'm saying, "It's nutritious food. That's what my body needs to work and not break down! Just like gas in my car."
    Shopping is a bonus. Size 20 to size 12! Now that ROCKS!!
    Stick with it as much as you can, Cindy! You know you'll be thankful you did.

    emoticon emoticon Oh yeah, Totally!
