I have been is a terrible rut for about 6 weeks. I got the stomach flu, then got really fatigued.
I went to the doctor & had all kind of tests done; everything was fine. Then the weather, schedule changes, family issues....you know the game. I then just got depressed. I had to do something, Part of what helped is that I had verbally made a commitment to myself and my family. I knew in my brain that there was no excuse..so I just know like Michael Jordan said,
Just do it!!
Everyday is a choice & if we do it instead of how we feel; our body will follow.
So, yesterday was a gorgeous day here in NC, so I got up, took my dog Mylie for our regular walk & started to jog. I made it all the way around my trek...which is about a mile. I had my IPod with e & it was fabulous!!
I am so proud of myself! To some, a mile is probably not much; but for me, a 257 lb.woman who hates jogging, it was phenomenal! So, I got home and immediately posted my success on my Facebook page. I thanked my sisters, brother, sister-in-law, nieces, and nephews for being a great example (they run marathons) & told them that I hope to join them...maybe for just a fourth marathon but nevertheless. I am happy!!! So to me, getting out of the rut is just stepping out of it. Good luck to all & let's keep going.
P.S. I also reminded myself and my family that I have set a goal to celebrate my 60th birthday with a big birthday bash in a LBD (little black dress.) That is 2.5 years away but I want to be 100 lbs. lighter and I will be!!! Let's keep going Spark Friends!

Made a decision to not beat myslelf up, that I slip in and out of doing what I need to do and slipping back to what I want to do. I am learning that recovery is a process; however, continuing to make the best decisions for myself rather than giving into my desires will help me attain the bigger desire (excuse the irony) to get to my goal weight. My confession: 258 lbs; My goal weight: 158
Any encouragement would be helpful.

I thought I had gained because I had not logged in since first part of July. But, actually, I have lost 4 lbs. The same 4 lbs I keep losing and gaining, but nevertheless.
So, I thought that was the bad news, but really, I don't have any bad news.
The good news TA---DAH is: I have started my Zumba classes & have fallen in love with them. I also came across a very caring instructor, who is a great support. So, I am commited to doing Zumba 3 x weekly. Today, I even went out to the pool and did extra laps!
The part where I thought I had gained was I did some emotional eating over this past month...mostly fried chicken 1 or 2 x weekly. And ice cream. But, now I see more that
eating when I am upset is not going to take away those feelings. Everyday I am getting better & better.
I know that I need to stay accountable to this website. And I am grateful to the support I get with my friends here at Sparkpeople. ROCK ON>>>>>>!!!!
