Mood for today....UP!

Tuesday, February 12, 2008

The clouds have parted and the BLUES have lifted.

During January, I joined MANY different challenges here at SP. It was GREAT for weight loss, but kinda bad for my mental state. I was weighing in as many as 4-5 days each week. I didn't go out w/ my husband, my kids, my friends or family members for lunch. I pretty much stayed at home trying to keep constantly 'on the right track'. I am not a good hermit. Spending too much time "REFLECTING on myself" often tends to lead to sadness and some self loathing.

This last weekend I took some time away from SP to do some things I have been neglecting and spent some time w/ the family. It was good for my mood. I'm back and feeling so much better and ready to hit losing the next 23.6#....but not so hard that I forget to live.

    It wouldn't be a lifestyle change if you missed out on LIFE. That's why most diets fail right- no one wants to completely go without. Just don't overdo it and if there are a few choices you can choose from choose the healthier. Good luck on the next 23.6!

    I find myself getting consumed every once in a while also. I have to remind my self that everything is okay in moderation.
