Having started this journey toward a healthier me almost 9 weeks ago, I find myself both looking back and looking forward. The past 8 weeks have been filled with new experiences- trying new foods, new exercises, making new friends. I am definately feeling better-physically, emotionally and mentally. I'm taking time to take care of myself. Parts of this new lifestyle are easy and enjoyable- eating better, walking, even exercising. I have struggled with not losing pounds- my once a week weigh in can send me into a meltdown. Thank goodness for my tape measure showing results, and thank goodness for my 2 (daily) sparkbuddies. As for looking forward, taking time for reflection over the past 2 months has started me towards another journey regarding work. I am feeling more as though I can do anything I put my mind to, and not as though I need to be a reflection of how other people in my life see me. About time, I say!
