I Made Goal!!

Sunday, November 14, 2010

I’m excited that as of today, I made goal..No more weight needed to be lost, now it’s time for phase 2 of my life – maintain this healthy life style….Through this last 11 months, when I began this journey, I never knew how much of my life would change as well…..

January 2, 2010, I made a choice to give myself a better life and I thought losing the weight was the whole answer, but it wasn’t…What I learned this year is that I had to let go of the past (very nasty marriage and divorce) to discover how lucky I was with having so many positive people in my life now..My sweet husband, who loved me unconditionally, fat or thin. Who knew I came to our life with garbage that I still hadn’t dealt with, even though I thought I had..My three loving children who have always supported me and my grandchildren, who never saw I was fat only “beautiful”…This is only a mere few of positive influences and love that I’ve learned have always been there just for the asking…

I am spiritual person believing with my whole heart in God and try to live as I think he would want me to live..I believe every day when I walk outside, there isn’t anything in nature that wasn’t created by God and is a part of him..Just to look at my backyard with nothing but a forest to stare at, or in the front with a gorgeous running river not to mention the sky above, so powerful….Each time, I found myself scared, in this last year, all I had to do was go outside and breath and I felt as though I was lifted and walking on air.

I don’t know why I have a weight problem, I don’t know why anyone has to suffer this but I think things happens for a reason….I am constantly amazed at how some can eat more than me and never suffer one pound of weight gain and it bothered me…..I wanted answers…Truly, I’m not a big eater although I have learned to eat healthier in this last year….I don’t pig out at the dinner table, I don’t eat a lot of sugar and yet, I was so overweight my physical being was suffering…. But in this last year, I learned if your physical self is in trouble so is the mental and spiritual part of you…

So today, as I enter into phase 2, I’m going to continue to learn how to maintain my weight at a healthy number and continue to feed my mind and soul. I’m walking forward with positive influences in my life as well as the understanding that true happiness comes from within me and not from someone or something else…

Blessings to all of you…Just know, if you need a friend, I’m here…If I can help anyone, just ask…And thank you, all of you, my Spark's friend..You help make this dream become a reality…I wish you all peace, comfort and love...

  Thanks for sharing, it uplifted me, especially the part about forgetting about your negative past.
Today, I just learned that my ex-husband is remarrying, after 10 years of our both being single. I do not have anybody yet, but my life is improving in other ways -- a new job! Thanks for sharing, it helped. emoticon
