Day 3

Friday, December 18, 2009

It's been a while since I've visited my little space here, since my last visit, I've just been treading water and getting no where except farther and farther away from my dreams and goals.

When I joined spark 3 years ago I had lost 97 lbs why oh why would I ever get so off track and start re-gaining? I swore I would never ever go back to my old ways, and yet here I am.

We bought a wii some time ago, I thought man this is what I need to get my butt up and moving, but that didn't really happen, not until I bought the new my shape complete with camera last week. I had no idea it would plaster my big behind on our 40 inch TV, OH MY God! After picking my jaw off the floor and getting my heart beating normally again, I decided that was it!

Today is day 3 back on track, I'm almost scared to post that here, because it seems every time I do, I get back off track, so I'm not going to come here every day and post how many days it's been, instead I'll sit quietly with myself and pray that each day will be a good day for me, because this time I've got to do it for my health, having had two mini strokes should have been my wake up call, it just took me a little bit to answer.

If you stop in to read this, please say a small prayer for me.

    Why a small prayer? Here's a BIG prayer (zero calories)!

    Writing on Christmas Day from Central Missouri - blowing snow, frosty windows and I think it's time to turn the space heater back on. Brrr!

    If you're anywhere in the area, maybe we can have a doggie play date at one of the dog parks around here. (Twin Lakes, maybe?)

    Starting over is the first step to reaching your goal! You can do it! Together we can all DO IT! I love your thinking of "releasing" pounds instead of "losing" them - I don't want mine back either! I have made you a spark friend - hope you will do the same - maybe we can "release" those pounds together!
    Happy Trails!

    I will keep you in my prayer's. Every day is a new day, don't beat yourself up. This is a journey with treasure around every corner, new habit to take form, smiles, hugs, laughter and tears and we are all in this together. You are a beautiful person. emoticon

    I have you in my thoughts and prayers. You know that you are not alone with this madness.

    I said the same thing tomyself the other day and posted a blg. Ironically, Mary post a blog similar tomine without knowing what was on my mind.

    We are commiting to being BOT following W.W. , counting points and weighing in 1x a week. Check out the blogs we did this past week.

    You can do it, you know you can because you did it before. So let's stop treading the water and swim toward that goal of ours.

    I will say a prayer for you, but I already KNOW you can do it, and so do you. Don't ever lose faith in yourself.

    emoticon on reaching 9,500 fitness minutes, you'll be beyond 10,000 before 2009 makes its exit.

    Maggie - we all start over every single day - sometimes we take more time off in between - but we are doing this together this time - we will prevail!

    Thank you for leaving a comment in my blog! It was very nice and encouraging. Here I am leaving my prayer for you:

    Dear God, may our days be filled with joy, may we change our views and perspectives to a better and healthier life, may we honour the gift of life by taking care of this small temple you have given us to shelter our spirits. May we be like children and the rest of creatures, for they find peace and happiness in playing and being active. Amen
