I'm so proud of myself! I see that I'm really moving forward consistently. I've been logging in a few times a day to track my nutrition/ fitness etc for a month now, I've introduced myself to others who are in my area, ( even attended a weight loss challenge group last night that I heard about from someone on Spark in my area! )..bottom line is that I'm doing what is suggested to me and it's working! I'm down 5 lbs. The correlations between my 12 step program and my lifestyle change that I'm doing on Spark are "MANY!" It's hard to believe that on Monday I was crying my eyes out due to sitting in a lot of guilt re; my past actions during all those years I lived in a haze of alcohol/ drug addiction and yet today I am so thankful and blessed that I have my sobriety of almost 2 yrs and that I even have a body that I'm able and ready to take care of, love and nurture! I want so badly to give back to my body what I took away from it for 23 yrs! I "love" my body! I "love" me! That is my mantra that I repeat over and over, ( among other one's! Lol ) Yes, today it's all about taking those steps that I need to take to consistently be moving forward so that I don't look back and sit in horrible guilt!
