You know what hon. Yes, it is sad that your other siblings are in a bad place with their health too, but right now this is all about you. You need to concentrate on you and stay singularly focused. You can do this CB. One day at a time, one step at a time.
You've done well with your weight. Stick with it. The more you lose the better you will feel and the more health issues get reduced. emoticon emoticon

TODAY Is MY tomorrow. It's up to ME to shape it, To TAKE CONTROL and seize EVERY opportunity. The POWER is in the choices I make EVERY day. I eat well, I live well I SHAPE ME!

THE EMPOWERED LIFE. EXPECT IT . BELIEVE IT. RECEIVE IT.
The human will is the most incredible thing. It's what keeps us going when everyone else expects us to quit.

THIS MEANS WAR AGAINST FAT:
I'm too positive to be doubtful, too optimistic to be fearful, and too determined to be defeated.

I only got a 42, but if you can't be honest with yourself, who can you be honest with.

Know that I am not anyone else's perception. I am simply *ME*

My score: 75.
I didn't like that I had to pick one/other--no shades of one/other, no half-way between. I had to pick what was "generally" correct and then place the condition of "worse than" on a couple of questions.
Overall, though, I can see where it has value. I'd not rate my life that low, but I see it as telling me I need to work on my life.

Let's get unstuck in 2019

The other day, as I walked to an annual medical check-up appointment, I had the deeply alarming thought that I was ACTUALLY looking forward to it.

The reason?
Because I wanted to talk.
About ME.

If this is not a rousing endorsement for the power of therapy, best friends, or kind animals that don't talk back THEN I KNOW NOTHING.

Know what else I like?
Taking assessments. About ME.
(THIS IS A SHAME-FREE ZONE, PEOPLE.)

Today Michael Hyatt has a new LIFE assessment out, all about scoring your life so you can get it to where you want to be in 2019.
One step is setting goals where we need them the most.
--->> Go take the LifeScore Assessment here.
assessments.michaelhyatt.com
/lifescore
/?cookieUUID=ee963b25-7ec3-4
0bd-83
20-7571652f1251


Here's what I like about it:

It is nice, but it doesn't sugarcoat the situation. It didn't hit me over the head and say "CLAIRE YOUR SCORE OF ___ IS ABOMINABLE!" but it did encourage me with a lovely graph to say "Hi Marion, THIS area of your life could use some lovin' on!"

I like that.

In business, in life in general, we measure so much. It helps us see what's working, what's not, and where the big opportunities are to improve. So why don't we give our health, our finances, and our relationships the same advantage?

It takes 5-10 minutes and it gave me an immediate snapshot of where I could do so. (It's also fascinating, as I was really surprised by one area that I THOUGHT needed work but actually seems pretty sweet.)

All you have to do is read a series of descriptive statements and pick the one that most closely aligns with where you perceive yourself to be. You then refine a bit based on your unique situation. It all adds up to your LifeScoreô. It's simple. But it will instantly show you your opportunities to grow this year.

The assessment is free as a bird, but itís only available for a few days and the hoards are gonna gobble this up fast.

So, If you want to improve something, start measuring it. Take your FREE LifeScore Assessment here. When you do, leave a comment with your score and I'll tell you mine!

[Shame-free zone people. We be improving this old life!]

P.P.S. Okay, I'll tell you. I got a 80. I'm on track!

TODAY Is MY tomorrow. It's up to ME to shape it, To TAKE CONTROL and seize EVERY opportunity. The POWER is in the choices I make EVERY day. I eat well, I live well I SHAPE ME!

Years ago, our dog got stuck underneath our small patio. He cried and not thinking I might get stuck too, I got down pretty low and sorta crawled to get him unstuck. I did this because I cared so much for Joey.

When Joey was back inside, I thought about this and remembered I get stuck in life at times. There is Someone who told me He would never leave me. I may feel stuck but I want to remember because He loves me, He'll see to it I won't stay stuck.

I had a hard day or two last week. Lost my focus and motivation. I'm glad I had my journal to reread some good days to remind myself what I needed to go, what I could do, and to motivate myself to DO. I also made notes to remind myself of how I felt and likely WHY I felt that way.

Hi, Andrea,
So sorry you're "stuck" in place, or seem to be.
Not to proscribe what you "should" do or "need" to do. But, I wondered if you've written down your goal(s) and then broken that goal down into steps that you feel comfortable with? Make them small steps since you want to accomplish/achieve your step. Then, when you're comfortable with that step or feel you've added that step, go to the next one. Then, you can "see" your progress.
I wish you the best, Andrea. NOMORESTALLING has posted some good stuff.

Hi Andrea,
I have read your message this morning and would very much like to work with you on this.
However, this is a workday for me as well and must head for the office.
While I'm out of this office please take the time to read this article I read myself this morning. I think there are things within it that might be of value to you.
I will be back after 5 and be checking in.

I know this is an old message, but I haven't used sparkpeople for a while, and decided to get back into it... even then I'm more of a lurker online and never posted messages, I have too much anxiety. But this topic you wrote strikes a chord with me.
I don't have an answer for it, because I am currently stuck. I'm stuck and watching everyone else move forward. And I don't have a clear path or idea on how to get out. I know some of it is my depression, but not all of it.
Others have very clear ideas on what I should do and what step to take, but it sounds like something they want for me, not something I actually want... so I don't do it and then stay where I am. Writing this out makes me think - well, I should probably do what the next person tells me to do, because at least then I wouldn't be stuck in place or moving backwards. Maybe I should just write more and attach myself to sparkpeople more permanently. Maybe then I could accomplish one goal - weight loss. :*sigh*

Have you ever felt like no matter what you do, youíre constantly taking 1 step forward and 2 steps back?

That after multiple attempts youíre not getting any closer towards reaching a goal you have set for yourself?

This feeling is frustrating and disappointing, and tends to lead to one of the worst feelings you can have ó feeling stuck in your life.

Why? Because you donít know whatís working and what's not. Itís almost like you're paralyzed and canít move forward.

So HOW do you get out of this funk? What works for you?
