Day 78 V2.0

Sometimes ya gotta just do what needs doing. I feel that I have done just that in the past few months, people want to find that miracle pill or miracle program that just melts the pounds away, and I have come to the realization that it just does not exist. are there supplements that can help? sure, is there a way to eat that makes it so? indeed there is. BUT I feel that a success is only as good as what gets put into it. in the past I have said that I need to lose weight and then done nothing about it. what is working is a moderate intake and trying to eat the right foods and basically not giving in to any temptations that may show themselves to me. its funny actually, the more I just do it the more weight falls off. no more hoping it just happens, no more do know what they say about wishing right? wish into one hand and shit into the other and see which one fills up first. we all know the answer to that one, now if you take the wishing and hoping out of the equation and add determination and just plain old willpower and hard work? bamn! results. much like the rest of life, when you do the work you get results. now thats not to say that I am not going to hit slow spots, or "plateaus" but the keep on keepin on has to stay in full affect for this to work.

I have made a few friends through this whole process so far and some have even emailed me or left comments here saying that I have inspired them to follow suit and lose some weight as well, that is just a bonus to the fact that I am healthier, happier and lighter than I have been in a while. energy levels are up, there is no more getting winded walking up to the second floor of my house, and a whole pile of things that I am sure I don't even notice making things better.

This morning I had written a very long blog entry and as I was signing it with "As Ever Me" I deleted the post before I could post it accidentally, so this is actually a lite version of what I had intended to post (forgot a lot of what I had written) so here is its replacement with basically the same messages just shorter versions of.

This is how I feel when I make mistakes like deleting an epic sized post

  2. 3Lol wify, that's too cute!

    Well I went ahead and made myself a blog too, jeez, I felt left out not having one. Although, I much prefer reading yours to posting my own.

    I love that you are getting so comfortable with this new plan of yours. That is going to make all the difference in the world this time for you.

    Have a great one.

  3. Great post!! I would have liked to have seen that first one, Peter Griffin! ;)
    I'm sure it had some really sweet stuff about wify! :)

    And, right you are about just doing it. Just doing it gets the job done. No wishing or hoping or praying....just plain old effort and determination. It's worked so far...I don't see why it won't keep on working!!

  4. Hmmmmmm, the original had all that in it? ... oh did thats right, I remember now ;) *wink*

    andeely I am on my way to check out your blog as soon as I hit submit here! :)

    Robyn, the first post was like 3 times as long, I was in a writing mood....that is until I deleted it accidentally :(
