Looking Back

Wednesday, October 24, 2012

This is a blog I wrote three years ago September 27, 2009. I found SparkPeople in 2007 and at that time I was 305 pounds. I haven't been constant here but the support and encouragement is always here. This is day 6 of me recommitting to change. I am down 5 pounds. YES!!! I CAN do it!!!


It's been a little over 2 months and I'm down 25 pounds. My self-esteem is going up, my stress level is down, and the guilt is starting to go away. I don't know if you can get with that but I'm talking about the guilt you feel when you've just eaten a whole cake or a jumbo pack of cookies etc.. The guilt you feel when you are scheduled for your annual PAP. The humiliation of having to open up and your fatty legs are sagging and ALL your "bidness" is showing. Anyway, my last pap was on July 17. It was a turning point for me because the nurse who did my PAP was having a hard time latching onto my cervix and she says to me,"The bigger you are makes it harder to latch on.". I was already embarrassed and ashamed and her saying that, made me feel worse. Now that I look back on it, I thank God for using Juanita (the RN) that day because it had an effect on the change in my life. I go back to see the doctor next week and I hope Juanita is there so that I can thank her. I know she wasn't trying to be ugly, she was just telling the truth and sometimes the truth hurts and in some instances, it can also heal. The very next day after that happened, I decided to do something about it. I'm not where I want to be but thank God, I'm on my way!

Thanks in advance for stopping by, it means a Lot.

I am truly grateful for the ups and downs.

    I've gained almost 20 pounds of what I'd lost. I was eating any and everything, wasn't tracking, stop logging in and giving or asking for support. I started to get depressed so here I am recommitting to Lifestyle change. I was stuck in my past accomplishments and couldn't get past them. That's why I reset my goals now I have new goals to meet. Anyway thanks for stopping by. Have a beautiful day. emoticon

    Reminds me of another quote I heard a few months ago: "Silence is God's first language."

The beginning of love is to let those we love
be perfectly themselves, and not to twist them
to fit our own image. Otherwise we love only
the reflection of ourselves we find in them. -Thomas Merton

Patience is power. Patience is not an absence of
action; rather, it is "timing"; it waits on the right time
to act, for the right principles and in the right way. -Fulton J. Sheen
