About 10 days ago I chose to start working very hard at my weight lose journey… I still have the stress issues in my life, but I am changing my attitude to that stress. Eating my way out of the stress was not working and I faced that fact it never will. I decided I needed to take care of myself at the same time I have the stress issues…. So far so good. It has only been about 10 days and I am doing great. I have dropped 2 of those ugly pounds I had gained. But more important to me is working on my "Heart Health" instead….
My Mom died of a heart attack when I was only a very young adult, and as I am growing older, the focus on my heart is becoming more important to me then the number on my scale…I have one grandchild, and the second one is due this Spring…. I want to be here as long as I can to see them and watch them grow up….
I love the Judith Beck Book , Training your Brain to think like a thin Person…. It is a cognitive way of thinking about your weight, but you could use it for other things in your life you want to change…. THis time I have added to the weight lose desire, also my healthy heart desire…. I am working the program and I am going to continue this journey. I am taking it day by day, and building on a string of good days… I am also ok if I choose to eat something on a special occasion is I want…. I can do anything I want if I just keep my silly little brain in the right thinking mode!!! I know I can, and I know I am worth it...

I have been stressed and anxious about a lot of things in my life right now, and am handling these all in the wrong way. I have been eating my way through these issues instead of dealing with the actual issues head on…
I have worked very hard to lose weight. I have lost around 50 pounds . I have done it the right way. I ate healthier and did my treadmill faithfully .. But the last couple of years a few very stressful issues have cross my path with my life journey.. Things that will always be here now. I need to start hard to focus on handling these issues in a better, healthier way…I know this will not be easy.
My first goal is going to be dig out my Judith Beck Book and start retraining my brain to work on handling stressful issues in a healthy way… I know it will not be easy, but I AM WORTH it..It was her book on retraining how we handle things that got the 50 pounds off in the first place…. SO I know the process works for me. I JUST NEED TO DO THE WORK… Not just say I will but DO IT…
So today for me is week 1 of getting seriously back on track, not just saying a want to get back on track, but actually doing the work to really do it…. I have been creeping up the scale little by little so I will be creeping back down the scale and loving myself for doing it…
I know myself, morning I talk big, but late afternoon, I start to fall of my path. Take it day by day, or even hour by hour at the beginning helps me build a foundation for a good healthy week. SO here I go.. I know I can, and I know I am worth it….

I am doing so so for now… My life is so filled with stress right now and I don't see the issues that are giving me stress going away anytime soon.. This is a time in the past I would always turn to food to try to make me happy… It never worked and we all know why it won't work…
But right now I am happy I am maintaining my weight instead of creeping up the ugly scale… I know our weight issues are a journey for life. It is not a station I can arrive at and say, Well I am done with that. I need to be happy and joyful ea ch and every day. I don't have to wait till a get to goal to be happy, I can be happy on my life journey while working on more then one issue at a time….Life is too precious to waste so I choose to enjoy each and every day At any weight I am that day!!!!

I still have a lot of stress in my life, but I have managed to eat right and track now more days this week then not journalising . That keeps me much joy… I know this journey is for ever, etch day I walk forward it gets better … I have not been trying for a few months, but I am trying again, and so far this week is a big first step again for me….
I read a lot of posts on Spark People, and I know I am not the only one who struggles from time to time…. I know this time is no different then the other times I feel off program.. I need to pick myself up, and get right back on track…. And having a string of 3 days now, is a great beginning again for me….
I know this is not easy, so etch day I can achieve my goals makes my self esteem push even harder to do well….
