Just me

Wednesday, June 17, 2015

emoticon It's just me dropping by the say emoticon . The title of my blog came this morning as I was checking my emails. Spark always sends emails and the one with the motivational blogs came on. Now here is my thing, I don't climb mountains and probably never will, I don't like to cook and that isn't going to change. I don't run marathons though I have done three emoticon I"m just me like I said. I get up each day I have my two cups of coffee while I check my emails and Spark, faithfully i've done this for seven years. I have 216 days on the spark wheel to prove my devotion. But I' m not a success story. I'm still a work in progress. I haven't had that AHA moment in a very long time, but I hold out hope that it will happen again. You know that feeling when it all just clicks and the ball finally starts rolling back down hill? Yup i'm still holding out for that. I guess what i'm saying is i'm just ME. I go to work and I work hard, some days I don't want to exercise, weigh my foods, or count darn calories. I want to get up and do what I want, I want to come home and veg. I just sometimes want to not have to stress about my weight. I just want to be me.

Of course the flip side of that is that ME right now is unhappy, uncomfortable, and just plain unmotivated to get and smaller. Showing me motivation through someone that has done the hard work and won should make me want to get up and do it also, but it doesn't. Show me someone that cooks a quick dinner, while reading the mail, washing the dishes left from breakfast, and in between folding laundry and still finds time to weigh, measure, count, plan, and track and i'm listening. Because really i'm just ME.

So I end this with a thanks for all Spark does give me. All the options I have available to me, but I choose not to use. Hey i'm busy in my world and I don't have time to do all that I could do on here. I would never get much done if I stayed on here like that.

    Well.. I am just me.. Funny how we pick a name and use it for all its worth.. I am happy to be back and honored to be able to respond to my first blog I have seen... Do well and the ice cream.. well it just kinda slips down into any place it can.. Keep it in mind that we are all a work in progress and know the ups and downs will always be here... Keep a positive out look and the grass in not always greener on the other side.. So as I end up with take a gander are the start and know where you cam from.. You will make the finish line... In His Love and Grace Just Me emoticon emoticon

    Be careful about wishing for an AHA moment. I had a friend who sat down in a chair at a party, the hostess's mother's antique chair, and it broke under her. It did the trick, got her to TOPS and she lost the weight, but I don't with that kind of humiliation on anyone.

    Seven years is a long time with Spark and I'm sure you have had lots of success or you wouldn't still be here. I have been here only 4 years and have had good days and bad days, but, I won't give up because Spark is a daily reminder of all the things I need to do to stay healthy. emoticon
