October is here already?

Wednesday, October 01, 2014

One of the scary, yet great, things about this web site is the ability to see just how fast time goes by. As we begin a new month and I can see how close I am to yet another Spark anniversary, I begin to panic! Maybe at 73 it's an age thing?
So this morning I am going to list some of the great things I have accomplished lately in my quest for healthy living as a member of this site.

I am still medication free!
I climbed the stairs 6 times every day during September!
I can roll over in bed and feel my stomach muscles kick in!
I bought my first pair of pants in years that doesn't have a "W" in the size label!
I can have lunch with the "girls" and order without appoligizing because I eat different!
I am not at goal but I am closer than I was when I started!
I am thankful to be on some great Spark teams and have wonderful support!

Make no mistake this is a permanent struggle and it is very easy to just forget all the little promises I made to myself but I have found ways to keep going and for that I am forever grateful. The one thing I know for sure after all the years I have spent at the game of "weight" is that for me exercise has to be added into the mix. It is the part that brings the "happiness" factor into my NSV (non scale victory) moments.
I wish everyone a wonderful fall season and for me I plan "to just get out there" and enjoy every bit of it!
