The Journey

Wednesday, February 25, 2009

It's been a little while since I have "blogged" my observations, about my life, my journey, my weight loss goals. To be honest, I have not been doing well with the weight loss effort. I had nearly given up. But I am back at it again. To make true life style changes is not easy. I am pretty good at the "quick fix" approach because part of me must know that is not permanent so therefore I really have nothing to fear. Now with the slow, purposeful lifestyle changes, that is becoming all too real and therefore a little more scary.

I am wondering what could I be so scared of? I think it is my own potential. What a shame to be scared of my greatest asset. Well, at least I have been able to diagnosis the problem. That should be half of the battle, right? Now, on to the treatment.

The support I seek and find here at Spark is invaluable. I don't get this kind of support on my weight loss goals anywhere else. It is not great that I also hang out with old friends who love chocolate, ice cream and pizza...all of my greatest temptations and weaknesses. How to find healthier friends, without losing the old??
