Some Thoughts...

Saturday, January 19, 2008

I spent most of my evening, scrolling through spark pages, especially looking at those voted "Motivators". These are some of the thoughts that went through my head:

I could have been one of them. If I had stayed on track, I would have reached goal by now. Instead I am barely 10 pounds below my highest weight. I mean, I try to stay positive, but how depressing is that!?!?

Not to mention the fact that there were several pictures I saw, of people that I would have SWORN were heavier than I am, only to find that they were significantly smaller than I am!

I remember, when I first lost all my weight, it took quite awhile for my head to catch up with body. I am finding that it is definitely true in the reverse! My mind is just starting to catch up to how frickin' fat I am.

When I look at my pictures from the end of 2006, I feel slightly sick. Hopefully I will be able to learn from this experience!

    The past is past. Comparing yourself to others will not help. You are setting yourself up and putting yourself down. Thank you for being honest becasue I know a lot of us think the same thing. As long as you don't dwell on it! You are good enough and you are worth it!

    I think the best lesson you can learn from motivators is positive thinking. Don't focus on those pictures from 2006, just look ahead to what you are going to accomplish and then EVERY DAY think about that goal and work toward it. You can do this. We all have it in us, you just need to bring that part out of you. You can do this!
