Feelin' mighty fine

Monday, June 01, 2009

OMG! I don't want this feeling to end. It was just a mere month ago that I could not figure out what would get me inspired to honestly give Spark the chance it deserves. What the heck happened since then that has me knowing that no one can stop me? An example is that just a little while ago after plugging in my nutrition for the day, I was coming up short. Dang! I was not even hungry but I know that I need to reach my calories, carbs, fats, etc daily goals. So I went to the pantry and looked around and NOTHING appealed to me. I ventured to the fridge and again...nothing. After going back to my tracker to see what I needed, I settled on natural no-salt almonds. I am still short in the carbs, but I give up...I don't want anything.

I also had an good treadmill trip to nowhere and ultimately got really realy really sweaty. I feel great knowing I rid my body of acky pooey stuff through sweating and being OCD, that is like the ultimate cleaning.

I also discovered fellow Sparker CHRIS3215 who had a very similar childhood of obesity that we both painfully endured. I had a wonderful Spark Mail chitchat with her and that is when I realized that she has stepped in the same footsteps I have throughout adulthood. Chris, thank you!

I continue to feel at peace with myself and my self-esteem is rocketing. I refuse to think about the whole picture...it hasn't worked. I refuse to dwell in the past of my weightloss woes...it hasn't worked. I will not continue with the negative self-talk...it hasn't worked.

My Spark gameplan is to celebrate every little success I experience...so far it has worked. I will continue to track my foods and fitness...it has worked. I will continue to gain motivation from my fellow Sparkers through blogs and postings...it has worked. I will continue on my new and improved Spark journey...for it is changing my life right before my very eyes.
