Pity Post

Monday, April 30, 2012

It seems that when I have blogged in the past they have been some what negative. Well, this one is going to be like the others, sorry!!!

I am disgusted with myself that I let my weight get away from me. I KNOW, I have to exercise more diligently. I NEED to stop eating all the junk, also need to stop buying it!! I need to drink my water and not rely on coffee to be my only liquid intake.

I do have to say that I love working at DSW!!! I do LOVE shoes!!! I am also enjoying the people that I work with. They are a lot of fun and the time flies when I am there!!!

The rest of my life is going, okay. My boyfriend lives an hour a way and it is hard to see each other. I am sure that is another reason that I am doing more snacking. I always thought I could handle a long distance relationship, but now I am not so sure. Then again, there are other circumstances that are making this one more difficult. (Do not want to get into it, nor will I.)

I want to thank my Spark friends for always being there!! I come on to Spark just to get my points, most of the time. When I read something that one of them have written, it usually makes me smile and then I know that they care, even if it is not addressed to me personally. They are an awesome bunch and I love them!!!!

    Patti-- Sorry it has taken me so long to read and rspond to this post! I think blogging about the negatives helps! Maybe you could try blogging when you feel down or alone and want to snack? I do that sometimes and it keeps my fingers out of the snack foods! I"m glad you are liking DSW! You might want to consider talking about the other stuff involved in that relationship. The thing is that none of your friends will judge you or anything. If someone does, there is this nifty little delete button for comments! I care about you and even when I am not on SP I am thinkking of my good Spark Friends, of which you are one, and hoping things are going well for them! I don't have skype or anything more that can interfere with my voice system, but if you ever want to talk, I'm more than happy to provide a phone number! Hang in there! Love ya! Melissa

    Patti, I love you too! hang in there! Like Cyndie said, you did it once, you can do it again! I know this won't make you feel better, but I have been very bad with my food intake again and NOT exercising that much either! I'm VERY upset with myself, but just try again the next day! Best of luck with you!

    Glad you like your job at the shoe store! Always good to enjoy your job!!!

    As for the boyfriend, I hope it all works out, if you are happy. Can you Skype with him or call?!!? Would / does that help? Again, best of luck with that too!

    Keep your head up... hugs!

    Really? I was expecting some serious pity going on when I read your title. I am very happy that you are liking the job!! It's brand new and yes, I am with you, I love shoes too! As for the other stuff, I know that you have been busy I see and comment on your feeds, you are still exercising great and encouraging others. Now put that into play for yourself please.

    No excuses. Put your life up there as a priority as if it was your job and earning a paycheck. You have lots of life, love and happiness to give out and that will only happen when you are making yourself count in every way.

    You know you can call me/text me any time! If you want to vent; text and I don't have to read or reply, just get if off your chest. Or go talk to the birds in the am with your coffee, no coffee today outside since it's raining, but I know you are getting the idea. Never leave it bottled up. Stay strong, stay positive, stay in it for you! Hugs!!

    Patti, we do love you! Unfortunately, I haven't been getting my exercise in since I started my temporary job.

    You did it before, you can do it again! emoticon emoticon
