Where ya been?

Wednesday, October 08, 2008

Where did I go, is a question I have been asked on here. I haven’t been on since Aug. And while I would love to tell you it’s because I lost all my weight and didn’t need Spark, that’s not true.

I fell into a classic diet pitfall—thinking I wasn’t worth it.

Now everyone can tell you that you are worth it that you deserve to be healthy. But the hardest part is getting your brain to believe it.

I also took a long hard look at my motivational poster, and some of it on there wasn’t about me, it was about how people would respond to me.

So I am starting again, and that little evil voice in my head keeps whispering you are starting again for the 9,000th time?

And I keep saying right back, YEP!

I wish I was one of those great examples who stuck with it no matter what, but I fall all the time.
But I hope by speaking about my fears, and my missteps, I can encourage you to be that person who doesn’t slip.

Back at it!

    It's okay that you fell off, what matters is that you got back on the horse- you are back!! It happens to the best of us but don't look back, look forward. Tell that little evil voice to be quiet and replace him with another voice that shouts "You can do it!! You are worth it!! You will win!!!"

    Welcome back!
