Taking those steps!

Wednesday, April 28, 2010

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! emoticon

    Good for you!
    It's great when you're doing more than one thing at a time to improve yourself and the one naturally helps you with the other. You'll find it gets easier as you go on. I've only been here since March 1, 2010. So I am a newby myself. It is hard, but we can do it. I love myself, I love myself, I love myself.

    Thanks for the encouragement! emoticon
