Please Don't Wait! DO IT NOW!
Wednesday, March 18, 2009
Hi everyone here in Spark land. I am writing to report my weigh in this week was a zero pound loss.
It is actually okay with me though because I am in my home stretch and knew I would have weeks like this. Hey I did not gain so I'm thinking that is something to celebrate !
I am so grateful for the progress I have made so far. It took me years to finally get my mind set in the right place to do something about my weight. So, I can be patient as I work to get these last pounds off. Speaking of me taking years to get this weight off, I think one of my pushing forces to finally get serious and do this for myself was the fact that I will turn 50 this year. I was determined not to hit that milestone of my life being so over weight and unhealthy. I urge all you younger spark friends to continue this journey and MAKE IT HAPPEN for yourself this time. Please do NOT put this journey off or give up. Don't wait until your almost 50 like I did and then decide to do something about it. I want you to have many more years to enjoy being healthy and self confident. I cannot tell you how absolutely AWESOME it feels to be smaller and get to pick from a larger variety of clothes now, I feel good about myself, I am healthier, I have energy, I have more confidence and guess what? I am no longer hiding from the camera! I actually want to be in the pictures now. I feel like I have years of missing from all the family photo's to make up for. I so want for you to get your self healthier by taking all that excess weight off so you can enjoy all these things too. I want you to enjoy then NOW not wait until you are almost 50. I promise you the journey is sooooo very worth the wonderful things the results will bring into your life. For spark friends more my age, PLEASE continue your journey so that you too can enjoy a happier, healthy you! You will come off medications that being overweight made necessary , you will have more energy, more self confidence, you will be made free of all the things that being over weight holds you back from. I don't just mean physically either. Our emotional well being and self esteem is negatively affected by being over weight. I have had sleep apnea for years and have had to use a C pap at night. Guess what? No more sleep apnea for me! I want you to experience the freedom losing that extra weight holds in store for you. My one regret is that I did not follow through and do this for myself sooner. I want to try and help anyone I can from making the mistake I did, which was waiting so long to do this. Please stick with your program and meet those goals you have set for yourself. You have a wonderful community of very caring and supportive friends right here with you to go through this with. Lets get it done TOGETHER! You are never alone in this journey here and YOU my friends are SO worth the effort it takes to get this done. So PLEASE do NOT give up or give in. See this journey through and I promise you that you will be so very happy that you did. We are all in this TOGETHER friends!
