Fighting discouragement

Thursday, May 07, 2009

Just a week ago I reached a long sought after goal...weighing under 200 pounds for the first time in about 20 years. I had fallen flat on my back( on the ground: a soft surface according to a friend) the previous Sunday night, but had felt very little pain, considering. Then every day for the past week I have hurt worse and worse, which of course, makes me want to nibble on something, Hurts worse when I walk, or try to bend,get in my car, etc., so you can imagine what that has done to my exercise effort. I am not giving up...I know that that old destroyer would be happy to see me get discouraged and go back to my old ways, but I also know I have a bunch of people rooting for me on Spark People, maybe some even will pray for me. So I WON'T GIVE IN!!!

    I am humbled by your willingness and strength. You could easily throw in the towel and grab the nearest morsel of whatever temps you. Instead you come to sparkpeople and write it out.
    Instead of even thinking the food might make things better. Grab a water, and slowly move towards a pool or a hot tub :)
    I just discovered you on here so dont you give up now! We are rooting for you!

    You can do it--all things are possible with God. Read my blog on my spark page called Baby steps add up---you'll see my most recent struggle, I was very discouraged, but just kept going slowly, now 19 months later I'm so glad I did. Fight the good fight--I'm fighting it with you.
