You are so on the money NYNM. It is about the choices we make. I'm really enjoying the buzz I'm getting from saying no - it's a bigger and longer buzz than saying yes to empty calories. Treating yourself with non-food treats is definitely the way to go.

Keep up the good work - I have a feeling you're in for some amazing success.
Just keep moving! And don't be lazy...

Hey All

I have come to the realisation that i am a ALL or NOTHING kinda Girl. I feel as tho the Will power switch as just come on. I feel powerful, I wil Achieve. Today i went to curves, i was running around work today, going WOOO HOOO im headed to curves after work. Girls just laughed and said, your so cute, that ur excited.

When it was time for me to finish, i raced out the back, grab my bag, and did a little dance and a little bum jijjle, sang a Song Yay getting the curve i derserve. . .. :D

I got the curves - I was pumped, i was like bring it on. spoke to the trainer, she asked me a set of questions, one that really stood out that she had asked me was -

What are Two reasons why you want To be healthy Now ? ? ?

i said - Because I Deserve IT !!!!!!

I deserve the best in life ( like all of us do) i want to be the best person i can be, FOR ME - its for a spiritugal growth.
I told her that, I use to be really scared in life. I use to depend on other people for my own self happiness. I use to Rely on others ALOT .

Through life experience i have grown to Apprciate the understand, that the only person i Need is ME - Im my own bestfriend, I need to start trusting myself - and to say to myself - Its ok - We will be ok - We will work through this - all these years i felt like i was alone, i now realise i have me - I never was alone - I will never be alone ever again - I can always count on ME , to pull me through. I will be ok, that witin it self - has taken me a long time to learn, and it is so comforting to know i will always have me :D I dont feel Scared.

The Trainer Was like WOW ......


Yester day was great with eatting

Well NYNM, it really does sound like you are on your way to success!

It sounds like you lead a pretty busy lifestyle! How do you keep up with everything? Well done on joining up with Curves. I myself find it hard to get to the gym because of my busy lifestyle.

It sounds like trips to the Zoo and TGI's aren't an issue when you know how to eat properly. Making the right choices can be difficult, I had a little slip up today :( I went past bunnings today and had a snag. I did however stop myself from getting a second :) (I guess that’s a start!)

We all need a little encouragement at times.... Keep up the good work NYNM!

Why No Shy ! :)

Hey Gordz
Thanks for your support - Yes 3.3kgs this Year 2009. I started the NewYearNewMe lifestyle change on 2nd Jan 2009, and already 3.3kgs -

No unhealthy food -
Lots of fruit, veg wholemeal things -
lots of water,
and exercise everyday - even if its been a light 30min stroll, I am constantly moving.
I am trying not to eat anything Man Made - lol - like chips, chocie, soft drink, fried foods, cakes etc
I seem to think if it grows from the ground or come from an animal - its good for me. hehehe :) seems to be working

HI NYNM, it sounds like you are really on top of things, well done! Very proud of you.
Going to the gym on a 40 degree day sounds like a it of pain. Don't over do it and hopefully the weather will drop soon.

I myself had to pick up another hobby / interest i've long since said goodbye to. I was scared to go swimming because i didn't want people to see how big i was, but i've found somewhere i feel comfortable and if people see me, and i know they will, it will help me build that part of my spirit that say's "You know what, I just don;t care what people think about me anymore". I may be big, but I'm here because i don't want to be anymore....

Oh well, enough about my little rant, well done again. Keep up the good work... that glow will return.... I'm sure it has started to already.
