I LOVE reading Spark People blogs...they inspire me and motivate me!!
So many blogs I have read, highly recommend blogging as another "tool" to use along this journey. I have thought about it many times...just never done it...I guess i think it is scary or something...ya know putting your thoughts out there..what if i sound stupid? I am not the most creative writer...why bother??
I have been on this journey for about 11 months and I have been ever faithful to the SP program...i really think they are onto something here!!!
This week I have noticed myself backsliding more than ever since beginning this journey....so I am taking the advise of so many brilliant Spark Friends and I am going to give this blogging a try and see if that helps me "get back in line".
If nothing else, I can look back at this and remember how great I was feeling!!
OK...so after my work out today I was checking myself out in the mirror...and I guess I am stating the obvious, but DANG what a difference 75 pounds makes!!
I just stood there in awe of myself...I could see my muscles that are taking shape beneath my "thinning" skin...erm yeah...very motivating!!
I am not full of myself or anything...just proud and everyone should pat themselves on the back from time to time! Am I right?
In all honesty I began this journey to "look" better....but what I am discovering is how much better I feel...I mean I have been thin before, but I dont think I was near as healthy or fit in my 20's as I am becoming now!!
So I need to remember as I go forth and reset my weight loss goals (I am close to the first goal I set,I will set a new goal once I reach the first goal...that goal will be a healthy BMI) that I need to keep my Spark going not only for how good I am going to look, but also to just plain be healthy!
Simple! I got this!! No more backsliding!!!
Thank you Spark People!!
Do you have a pat yourself on the back moment to share??
