"Set yourself up for sucess and anything is possible"
-Spark Motivational quotes

So I really like this...and I am finally feeling like success is starting to come my way with physical recovery which I am very greatful for. The ironic part is I'm kindof in disbelief...I think I was actually not eating enough before and it was slowing my metabolism down! I started a new weight loss program and I realized I can give myself permission to eat alot more than I do because of all the calories I burn through excersize and my job, which is basically power walking with a tray:)
I am greatful for my first step in success...to have lost 1.5 lbs! Actually the scale said I had lost another 2 lbs today but I am waiting until Thursday my officical weigh in day to post it. I don't want to get to ahead of myself:)
I started seeing a new boy which I'm really excited about. Perhaps the excitement around this has also helped me not be that interested in food...but I am surrenduring it over to God. I don't want another person to be the reason for my physical recovery...I want to do it for me and me alone. (And God too, of course:)
So I am striving to create balance in other areas of my life as well...and now that I am finally starting to get the results I want here it feels like a weight has been lifted (no pun intended:) and that i can also focus on other areas of my life that are incredibly important.
I am looking into getting new headshots...I know I will have to do this soon anyway. I think if I'm going to spend a large amount of money I should wait until I'm at 145. I don't see anything wrong with this...I think it will be the biggest reward to take pictures of myself in my succsess that I worked so hard for...and feel beautiful and comfortable in the pictures. I would like to possibly do some cheaper pictures now...some with character photos as well...I really need one showing me as a Latina.
God, Gaurd Me and Guide me in your Strenght and Will today...Give me Courage and Strenght to believe in myself:)
I love you.

    Keep fighting the good fight.

    It is so freeing when you discover that eating disordered behaviors (e.g., severe restriction) can actually HINDER weight loss in the long and sometimes short term. It's a counter-intuitive truth which is very difficult for ED'd folks to truly embrace.

    Onward and upward!
