SAVE YOUR CHANGES *click*
Wednesday, August 26, 2015
I saw this over and over again as I was updating my Spark Page yesterday.
Edit. "Save Your Changes". *click*.
Then I'd re-read my notes, want to fine tune it further, go in to edit again- then "Save Your Changes".
That's really what it's all about in order to *not * gain the weight back (even 1 or 2 lbs.) First off, change is imperative in order to have successful and permanent weight loss. I see that all around me in those who have kept it off. They SAVED THEIR CHANGES. I figured out I hadn't. That's when I realized I've been stuck in my ways, and therefore stuck in obesity. (ouch that was painful)
But enlightenment is knowledge and knowledge is power- so on I trudge with a new awareness. And as I make better food choices, add more exercise in, get more sleep by going to bed earlier (night owl) and on and on- gradually- I will be mindful to SAVE THAT CHANGE.
I truly believe that backsliding takes place when the changes go out the window. We can say this happened or that occurred, but in reality the changes weren't saved and therefore we've gone back to our old ways- in part or full blown. I kept going back to my old ways after getting rid of both small amounts and larger amounts of weight- for years. Therefore I've been stuck in obesity for years. I'm "unsticking" myself through small changes- and SAVING THEM.
Thank you friends who have stuck with me through our lengthy 2,0000 mile+ move last year, getting situated this year, and not getting on to chat with friends, read blogs, or give goodies very often. I used to be a stickler about giving my friends goodies regularly- something I just enjoy doing- and stopping by your pages to chat and encourage, read your blogs. I just didn't get to it for a long time- but I'm feeling the passion again and feeling the hope.
Bless you all and thank you for your examples of changes and sticking with them.
