The tough job ahead

Friday, July 04, 2014

I'm feeling on a roll! Already down 7 pounds, gaining my flexibility back and doing an excellent job of tracking and reducing my alcohol intake.

I'm sure you've heard something similar before. From yourself, right?

And there's where the tough job will begin... When motivation once again begins to wane. The beginning is always easy - but we both know things totally change when cravings hit and emotions threaten. But we have to remember - we are prepared. We've done our research... We know how to take care of ourselves and how to respond to cravings and emotions. We have the tools. Our journeys are our own - no one else can tell us how we should be doing things (even though I know I've longed to hear someone tell me a magic word or phrase that would solve everything!). We've gotta go it alone, we've got to do this for no one else... Do it for YOU.

Listen to your body.

Enjoy each moment, live for NOW.

Strive for physical and emotional comfort as much as possible.

Love yourself no matter what.

Remember that you're worth it!

    and that's what spark is so good for - to re-establish that motivation when it starts to fade, provide us with the tools to deal, and for others to cheer us on. i'm traveling a similar journey - and we're going to do it! emoticon emoticon
