I'm so disappointed in myself. I stepped on the scale this morning and was almost all they way back to where I started when I joined spark people. It's been a very hard year, the worst of my life, really....but I am forgiving myself for it all, learning from it, and starting over.
I dusted off the old VitaMix machine and made a breakfast smoothie of fruits, veggies, and fat free yogurt. I am using the nutrition tracker and counting those calories. I have been pretty good about exercising and staying active but the munchies have been getting to me and southern fried temptations are EVERYWHERE. It is all still a novelty with me being a newcomer down here an all.
The positives are that I have accomplished a lot of things this year, faced down several demons and came out stronger. In fact, I am downright happy. I love being here in the South. I love the community I live in and I am positively relishing in the fact that I am surrounded by family and support that I never had before. I am truly blessed.
My husband's family reunion is over labor day in Charlotte, NC and I'm really looking forward to it. I would like to see a little progress before I get there? I know I can do it!!
