Taking my own advice...
Wednesday, July 23, 2014
Ok... I'll try to be succinct... though that's not my strength... lol
When I joined SP in 2011, my life had slowed down and stabilized. I could put my full effort into weight loss. I started chair exercising and tracked as much as possible. I updated my status everyday, I blogged regularly. I lost 45 pounds!
I noticed, as I got to know more SP friends, that those who were active on teams, regularly blogged, and were active overall on SP were the ones who were regularly losing weight. I noticed that those who hadn't lost much weight and had been members for over 2 years - hadn't blogged in several years.
So - 2012 was the beginning of my life spinning away again... and I drifted away from spending time on SP... our youngest grandchild was born and he is with us for days at a time - now 2 yrs old. An older lady that I had become close with, had more medical needs, and I helped her in this area. I spent a lot of time taking her to increasingly frequent dr appointments, hospital ERs, blood transfusions, etc. She passed away 2 months ago. The point of this paragraph is to say, life became busy and the area that suffered the most was my health and ability to stay focused and consistent on weight loss.
So - I need to take my own advice - I've been working at being consistent with logging in - and now working on tracking consistently. I'm water walking at least 2 times a week - actually jogging.
There's also been another positive impetus that is spurring me on - but that will make this blog entry really long - so I'll save it for another day. :) Hopefully, soon - since blogging is important for me to keep on track.
Have a great Wednesday!
