Hi Robin! I am glad you are starting over too! I became blase about everything. I went through Christmas without gaining any weight and I thought I had it licked. No, I was folling myself! It is a daily journey! Coem along! Let's see what we can do! I welcome you along! 2107 days ago
Saw on the "Healthy Reflections Email" message board that you've been struggling and consider giving up... I'm SO sorry to hear this!! PLEASE keep hanging in there and KNOW that YOU are worth this!!!!! We all have "bad times" during this journey -- yesterday was a good example for ME -- I gave into my "stress eating habit"... And it can be VERY frustrating BUT I see on your page you had/have lost 33 pounds!! WOW WOW WOW!!! That's BEYOND AWESOME!!! You've obviously GOT what it takes to do this!!
Noticed you're a teacher -- KUDOS to you!!!!! You guys are the MOST underpaid, overworked people that walk this earth!! THANK YOU for what you do!!
I'm also guessing that's part of your "issue".... You're SO used to taking care of EVERYONE else and putting EVERYONE else ahead of YOUR needs etc.... This time, do it for YOU -- put the SAME CARE into YOU as you do the people/kids you teach!! You deserve it!
So, our paths have crossed on the FFF team. It appears we have other similarities as well. 1st being the ' running ' issue. They say wearing 2 bras help. Sure I think, they is actually a she that is only a barely B cup. Good grief! 2nd, we both, ARE going to shed around the same amount of weight. Though my weight loss ticker says 31 lbs pounds, that is just a mini goal I set. Just so the task doesn't appear so daunting. I'm actually GOING to lose between 92 -115 lbs. We'll see what my now over 50 metabolism allows me. 3rd (and probably not final) We WILL do this pound by pound, day by day. Creating a healthy lifestyle for long term.
Thanks for taking an interest in my story. I'm truly tired of traveling that road. I WILL complete this journey and value my new life there. Here's hoping to be neighbors!
Focus on results, you see no change. Focus on change, you see results!
Thanks for responding to my post that was featured in a community highlight in the beginning of June title 100 Pound Loss Maintained for 4 Months. I am so sorry that is has taken me so long to acknowledge your post. The community response was overwhelming.
