April Two

Friday, April 02, 2010

Today's reflection about competing only against yourself resonated with me. I am not very competitive on most things. But the reflection asked that you compete with yourself. I can do that. In life, I have had successes because I worked for them - my possessions, my career, my rewards, my Master's Degree. I got all those through setting up goals (maybe not formalized goals but goals nonetheless). I never thought to set up a goal to be healthy and have weight loss until now.

I will be sixty next year and I want to maintain my independence and be healthy. I have set the goal of being a lot thinner and healthy by that date. I want to beam on my sixtieth birthday. I want do more than show off my age but my ability to achieve good things for me. I am committed to this long term goal. With the help of SP I will make it.

    I love to compete against myself. I know that in the end it will be well worth it. I'm behind you all the way! I KNOW you can do it!
