One Year

Thursday, October 02, 2008

So I realized the other day that I have been on SP for one year. emoticon My life has changed so much in that time. I reached my goal weight and have maintained for over 6 months now. emoticon I have bounced a bit but I have a range that I set and I have not gone over that. I feel really confident that I can keep it off - my fear has always been maintance so that confidence is really huge for me. I am definetely not as gung-ho as I was; it is much harder to some days to keep everything going. But I do seem to be finding that balance of enjoying life and maintaining the healthy habits. Some weeks I excercise with much vigor, some I just eek out the bare minimum. Same with eating. Sometimes the healthy habits seem like a natural part of life and others it is such a struggle. I keep hoping that it will become natural and I won't have to think it thru so much - doing a mental count of my daily calories before choosing a snack - but I am not sure that it will. Food is always there and I do love to eat!! emoticon But overall the goal is always there and I find a way to get back to the plan. It is worth it - I am worth it!

    Wow a year. That seems so incredible. I am so looking forward to maintenance. Please stick around long enough for some of us to make it to where you are. We can start a maintenance ohio team- It'll be fun! I want to believe that this will not always be such a struggle.
