Well, today I start Stage 2, I can't believe it's been 2 weeks already. I've been a little disappointed by some weight fluctuation, food craving and a lack of energy to workout. But I am soooo happy, and proud that I am still here!
It's not the easiest thing, to revamp your lifestyle to a healthier one, at least not for me. But SP and the communities I've joined have been a great help.
I just started my menstral cycle which is not so simple when you have large fibroids. The stuff that I have to deal with for 7 plus days and on every hour like clockwork. These things is so tiring that writing the details would be like a horror story gone wrong! So my weight has been going up and down, constant headaches for the last 3 days and more. I just have not felt so well, which can definately be a great place for depression to set in. But I won't let it...God won't have it so! Which is one reason I'm glad he keeps sending me favor and grace and wonderful other things in my life. Like, I am so glad that i have read (& will continue to read) what others have written about how they have gotten through various opsticles. This type of support is priceless.
So my stage 2 invite came at a good time. I wasn't going to continue on (just repeat St. 1) because I didn't do everything at an A plus plus standard, but what is the standard? I was suppose to check out the SP site and become familiar with the community and the way things work. I have earned 696 Spark Points so far and I plan to earn several more before today ends! I have done more movement with my body in the last 2 weeks than I have since 2007 started. I acatually pay attention to what I'm putting in my mouth and how often. I used to eat 1 - 2 meals a day that has only happend a few times. I hardly ever drink water, or enough constistantly. And these past 2 weeks I drank at least 8 cups a day!!!!!
This is turning out to be a great change for me. Like the song says..."We're just ordianry people...take it slow" Opps, no, I'm not an ordinary person, the bible says that I am a parculiar person, from the royal preisthood of the God Almighty. So no matter, what I am truly blessed to be able to say that I am on my way.... I can do it at my speed!
STAGE 2 BAAAA-BE!!!
