Half on Half off track.........

Thursday, December 10, 2009

Well as all my friends here at Sp know I have not been on here in a while. I feel I have been half on and half off track for the last couple of weeks. I want to thank all of you for your support.

I have had a lot going on in my life here lately as I am sure everyone here can relate at this time of year. It is not only Christmas coming up that has thrown me off track.

A couple of people had found me on the internet about the middle of November. That I have not seen or spoken to in over 16 years. These people have brought back many great memories and one has rekindled some feelings that I have been dealing with over the last couple of weeks. I don't eat and I don't sleep, which is not a good thing at times. When I walked away from these people I only had that choice under the circumstances at the time. We had lost touch not long after that.

I went to the doctor on Monday and he gave me a compliment that was great.
He had told me that out of all of his weight loss patients I have been the only one to stay committed and continuously lose. He ask what program I was on and I told him I don't think I could have done this good without SP friends and the support that you guys give here. He even gave me a much needed hug. Understand that the community that I live in is small. Not that small but small if that makes sense.

Also on top of all that I just turned 48 on the 8th of December and was having a hard time with that the week before my birthday. Everyone kept asking if I was okay and I was depressed for a little while. Then on that day I woke up with a new commitment to myself. I REFUSE TO BE OR FEEL OLD ANY LONGER.... like I told my doctor I have not felt this good health wise or mind wise in a very long time.

Well as always I do have to thank all of my friends here at SP because without you guys I don't think I would have made it this far and would not have exceeded the 30lbs that I have lost in the last 3 months. So I Thank You Guys for the support and inspiration that you give me.

I am back with a little extra emotional luggage that I will have to deal with because I know it will not just go away. I will have to find constructive things to do and work through this no matter the end results.

Again thank you guys for everything...
Have a wonderful day.

    First, congrats on your weight loss over the past months. Second, meeting up with old friends can be good and sometimes hard. We have been apart for so long, that sometimes the reason we lost track seems so minuscule. It's hard facing old feeling and sometimes it's hard to know where to begin. I think that focusing on the present is best. Both of you have probable changed since the old days, so you should look to not and not then. Things have a way of working themselves out.
