Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Life
Tuesday, July 28, 2015
Hello all! I have been gone a minute but am back & ready to support and be supported while on this journey. I did really well back in 2013 by losing 48 lbs and have since regained the weight. I am not interested in looking back or making excuses or having a pity party. I am moving forward and living in the now and doing what I need to do in the present moment for success.
It all starts in the mind. Our thought lives are where everything begins and ends. I have been working hard on changing my thoughts and being aware of what's going on in that noggin' of mine. It's very powerful. Never underestimate it. I am also working on loving myself. Loving myself includes taking control of those thoughts and also not looking outwardly for validation anymore, but only basing my worth and value on what *I* think of myself. These are the core issues that got me to the weight I am now. It's why I have lost and regained several times over the years. How you think has everything to do with where you are in life, good or bad. Your life is a reflection of what you think. A hard pill to swallow for a lot of people but it's true. Sure wasn't easy for me, nor did I always 'get it'.
No we cannot control everything that happens to and around us, but we CAN control our response/reaction to it. We can decide what we want to think about it. I am choosing to change all of that because as the old saying goes I am 'sick & tired of being sick & tired'. I am willing to do whatever it takes. I am becoming a better version of myself. My authentic self. I am so excited! Being smaller, healthier and in better shape is the icing on the cake. And I am succeeding. Just watch my journey. I guarantee it. :)
So thanks to all my Spark friends who continued checking in and supporting me even when I wasn't active on the site. And here's to making new friends too. I look forward to getting to know you! Let's do this! :)
