I am worse on my own

Thursday, July 21, 2011

It's been a few months since I participated on this site, not to my advantage but disadvantage. I was happy when I first came into contact with it, but it involved work and I just stop doing the things required to progress. Maybe I needed that to happen to realize that "it works if I work it". Now a few added pounds later, I return, to work, no matter how slow, to progress in the right direction, because I realize that weight gain or lost, I am still working at something, so I need to work in a way for my benefit. I want improved health and to feel better about myself. I now see this site as a helper and not being alone. I am thankful for the tools and knowledge it provides. emoticon

    I like your attitude. Yes, it really is hard work to learn new behavior regarding eating and exercising, but with each pound lost, you'll begin to feel so much better that soon it won't matter how hard it is, or how long it takes, it only matters that it's happening at all.

    And it all begins with that first step.

    I know you can do this!

    I love it!
    "it works if I work it". Great saying!!

    You should write that real big and put where you can see it everyday. Maybe it will give you inspiration.

    Remember we didn't get this way over nite so it will not come off over nite. It is hard work we all have our ups and downs but we are all here together to cheer each other on in our achievements and or down falls. We all have been there at one time or another. It easy to beat ourselves up because we are so use to it. If we keep saying we can't we won't remember that little ant in high hopes:


    Next time your found, with your chin on the
    ground
    There a lot to be learned, so look around

    Just what makes that little old ant
    Think he’ll move that rubber tree plant
    Anyone knows an ant, can’t
    Move a rubber tree plant

    But he’s got high hopes, he’s got high hopes
    He’s got high apple pie, in the sky hopes

    So any time your gettin’ low
    ’stead of lettin’ go
    Just remember that ant
    Oops there goes another rubber tree plant

    When troubles call, and your back’s to the wall
    There a lot to be learned, that wall could fall

    Once there was a silly old ram
    Thought he’d punch a hole in a dam
    No one could make that ram, scram
    He kept buttin’ that dam

    ’cause he had high hopes, he had high hopes
    He had high apple pie, in the sky hopes

    So any time your feelin’ bad
    ’stead of feelin’ sad
    Just remember that ram
    Oops there goes a billion kilowatt dam

    All problems just a toy balloon
    They’ll be bursted soon
    They’re just bound to go pop
    Oops there goes another problem kerplop

    You are right.. it works if you work it! You know.. you have to work for all the great things otherwise you don't appreciate it. But most importantly, you are not alone in this.. you have us! Don't hesitate to reach out to your team mates if you need help!

    SOMETIMES IT IS HARD TO STAY ON TRACK, SO WE GO HIDE. TOO BAD WE DON'T HAVE A WAY TO KNOW WHEN SOMEONE IS MISSING. THEN WE COULD PULL THEM BACK IN.

    You are right that the system will work if you work it, but i'm the world worst at taking my own advice. I am good about encouraging other people but not myself. But I will say to you find what works for you in the system and make it happen for you.

    Good luck.
