7.1.11: Out of balance/starting over

Friday, July 01, 2011

I was so busy focusing on racking up Sparkpoints that I lost track of what my main goal was: WEIGHT LOSS! My daughter made a comment about my booty being big today and she pawed at my rolls on my tummy like a newborn kitten. I was really hurt and made her apologize. The thing is, it really hurt cause it's true. I know that I've been letting my weight go and haven't tracked my nutrition or fitness (or lack thereof). So, needless to say, when I got on the scale today and saw the number 274.5 flash back at me I shouldn't be horrified, but I am. I'm disappointed that I let myself down, my partner, my daughter, my doctors, my TEAMS...here I am telling everyone to keep on Sparking and what am I doing? Starting over.

::Deep breath:: So, let's see if I can find those tracks underneath this train to keep on moving! I'll need a lot of support, so if you have it to give, I'd really appreciate it.

Don't give up on me, and I'll try to do to the same. I'm worth it. I just need to believe it.

    You sound like you take care of everyone, you assume a lot of responsibility, just don' t forget yourself, o.k. you sound very sensitive, sometimes sensitive people unavoidably forget to ground themselves and appreciate the loving being they are. Have empathy will yourself first and remember to love yourself through good choices each day. In my opinion you are authentic and you rock! It' s awesome that you shared. You are definitely a leader! emoticon

    No one is giving up on you! We've all had many stops and starts for different reasons...and you haven't given up on us right!? So we would never give up on you!
    It's part of the journey...and the auto-immune issues make it 10x tougher (some days 100x tougher). But you were created to do great things despite the people and things that stand in your way. We believe in you, and you believe in you...now it's just one foot in front of the other...one baby step at a time!
    Cheering you on!

    Ducky: You're so sweet and such an asset to the team. Thanks for paying it forward (and back!) when I need it too.

    Hey Sweets, You will never give up on you and I will never give up on you. You are a team leader. You helped me in my darkest hours and helped to to get to where I am today. You girl, so let the sun shine it and keep on leading because I know I am not the only one who was inspired by you. Tomorrow will be a better day.

    What you said at the end is the first part - accept that you are worth it. Believe it. It's the only way you'll stick with it.
    Other things - little things help. Start with trying to get in 8 cups of water a day, then try to stay within your calorie range for a day, a week, a month. . .etc.

    Rack up those fitness minutes wherever you can. My trick - I try to take a lap around my office once an hour. Sitting down for too long isn't good for you, so try to stretch your legs when you can.

    You'll do it!

    What teams do u lead?
    You are not a phony at all, iu would be if you wouldn't admit your downfalls but we are all human and to be human is to make mistakes and start again no matter how many times it takes.

    Thanks, GAL! I need all the support I can get! I hope my SP teams I co-lead will understand. I feel like such a phony. It feels good to type this out and get it out in the open though. Thanks for your support!

    I won't give up on you, you can do this. We all get off the tracks at some time but you know the most important thing is to find them and get back on. Here's a quote for you, it has always helped me bounce back.

    "failure is not the falling down, but the staying down"-Mary Pickford

    Yes you are worth it, now start believing it!! I know you can!
