The Journey to Health....

Monday, July 08, 2013

This journey seems to be L O N G.... and I've had several hills and valleys along the way. I have spent the last year doing the up/down/up/down thing and hopefully once I get back to my lowest weight on this journey, I'll keep on . . . . rather than "retreating" into unnecessary food -- good or bad.

I have to ask myself the question..... Do I REALLY REALLY want to lose weight or is that (candybar, pasta, steak, corn, ice cream, donut,,,,,, you get the drift) all that important? And even the amount of what I eat (even healthy food) seems to be "out of control."

I have now spent 7 days doing well in the "eating" category. I'm going to focus on that for now. After 30 days of "true eating well" I will add the exercise.

If it weren't for Spark..... I would be in deep trouble, but this sight and the friends on here keep me on the RIGHT road,,,,, the ROAD to good health, the ROAD to a lower weight, the ROAD to feeling better for the rest of my life!

I just decided to finally blog because I hadn't accomplished what I had set out to do the first part of this year! and I wanted to commit to doing that.

    I can sure identify with what you said, Lois. Right there with you and I see others said the same thing. Here's to success for all of us...one choice and one day at a time! YES, we can do it...but we have to want it more than we want the immediate pleasure of something else and I fight that every day and in every way--too often not very successfully!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I am glad you DID blog - it is often helpful to me and when others blog, their words help me as well. It is like a double blessing and it really helps me stay on track.

    I HEAR YOU, DEAR LOIS. SAME HERE. BOUGHT FRUITS INSTEAD OF CHIPS TODAY, I HAD THEM IN MY HAND AND PUT THEM BACK.
    WE NEED THE SUPPORT, I NEED TO COME BACK FULL TIME. YOU ARE DOING THE RIGHT CHOICE.

    You have to find the combinations that work for you and spend a lifetime eating that way to be healthy. Would you put the wrong kind of gas in your car?
