Want to Be Able to Run Up The Stairs, Like Rocky Did (without help or any huffing and puffing) ;0)

Greetings Everyone!

I underwent spine surgery for a major spine problem. Rods and screws were inserted into my spine to help keep my vertebrea from slipping into my spinal cord and cutting off my brain's signal telling my legs to walk. Losing my ability to walk, these past three years, and only now having had the chance to regain some mobility has taught me a great deal about life and how easy good health is to lose.

2012 is here!!

2012 is here!!
----I want to walk again, like an average person.
----I want to deal with my emotions without using food for comfort. After all, over-eating only makes things worse!
----I want to feel amazingly proud of myself for not letting a physical, painful problem keep me from being the best that I can be
----I want to be able to climb stairs or even run up them like Rocky did in the movie!! (yeah, Rocky).

There is not a living soul that benefits by carrying extra weight, or lack of exercise. So it's time for me to quit moaning and groaning, keep an amazing attitude, and just do it.

Wishing everyone here on Spark amazing success with their journey!!

Warm smiles ;0)

It is good to hear from you. Good job on getting started on eating right.

I am struggling. I have had a cold and "pink eye" for over a week now. My eyes are sore and goopy and I can't wear makeup. I am trying not to go out in public because it is contagious.

On top of that, I am very busy with many projects including distributing Boy Scout popcorn for our troop and practicing for a guitar recital on Dec. 1st that I also have to print programs for and make homemade guitar shaped cookies!

I am also trying to get things ready for Christmas. I had to buy a new tree and I am making lists for gifts.

I am also in the middle of painting the outside of my house. I had to stop when I got sick.

As you can see, I am over-loaded with things to do. Unfortunately, I don't eat well when I am sick or stressed. It is very hard to work my program when I am tired and feel bad.

I keep telling myself that I will exercise and work my program when I get better but, I wonder when that will be since I seem to go from one illness or excuse to another.

At least I have my Sparkfriends to help keep me focused. Thanks for letting me vent. I hope you are continuing to work your plan and put yourself first.

You are a beautiful, caring lady and I wish you all the best. Talk to you soon.

Hugs.

Here we are...a month later...

I missed you! I don't know what is wrong with me. I am feeling panicked because I keep gaining weight and can't seem to stop. I am now 280 lbs.!

I keep getting distracted with other things and I feel stressed. I find myself eating lots of calories at night. I haven't exercised in months. None of my clothes fit... I feel awful!

I must focus on myself again. Today I am tracking my food and drinking water.

I know that doing some positive things will get me going in the right direction again. I am trying not to focus on my mistakes but, it is hard. I am angry with myself for letting this happen. I had really believed I would never be this big again back when I lost 70 lbs.

This is a hard life to live...watching every bite and staying focused on my weight. Most people will never know this kind of depression or frustration.

My life is important and I have to do this for myself. Thanks for being here every time I start back. One of these days I will get it right! :0)

We need to stick together and get this done. "Tomorrow we will wish we started today!"

Have a "sparkly" week! Hugs.

Sorry to hear you are facing challenges at work. I know you will be okay. Give yourself time to get used to the situation and things will work themselves out. One thing I have realized is that the stressful situations are always going to be there. We just have to find positive ways to cope with them instead of passifying with food.
I am guilty of this. I have been sick all week and on top of that, my son's school was vandalized and set on fire by teenagers early Tuesday morning. Now my son has to go to a different school because of all the damage.
It is hard to not eat when we feel distress over situations but, stopping and thinking about how that food will make us feel after we eat it can usually change our minds before we regret our actions. Food won't solve our problems...it just creates more of them.
Have a good weekend and try to relax. We both deserve to reach our goals. Let's stay focused. Each step forward will make us stronger.
