Alright - I'm staying!
I never imagined how much of a positive response yesterday's post would generate - and yea - some folks were less than positive - but for the vast majority - you either told me that I should do what I needed to for me - or that you'd miss me and that you draw inspiration from my trials and tribulations.
And as I pondered what to do - I glanced at my wrist.
And saw my new custom watch. A final gift of sorts from my father. And it bears Figment on it - and the words "one little spark". And it IS my inspiration. It helps me remember why I do what I do. And to remind me that I'm succeeding already.
EDITOR'S NOTE: Originally I'd promised myself a watch as a "success" gift for 20 lbs lost. However - using some money that I'd been given by my father (through sale of some of his jewelry) - I chose to purchase one as a memorial to him - and a reminder of why I'm still fighting every day to get better. Amber even said to me, after purchasing it: "I know why you originally said you wanted the watch - but now the message on it is - 'this had better work'." So it becomes a symbolic push forward.
Thus far this week - I'm well on my way to my vinylmation goals for the week - I've counted points every day - and have stayed within my goals. And I'm feeling energized, jazzed, inspired, and just overall....
And I'm going to use this blog to chart my progress. My trials. My ups. My downs. My goals. My successes. And my journey from me - to INSPIRED me. :) And I hope you'll all join me.
MAIN STREET AWAITS!
