Long time no blog!!

Sunday, February 06, 2011

So I last blogged in April of 09!! I talked about how scary getting near to goal was. Well I made that goal in November of '09. It was a wonderful feeling to be at a healthy goal weight for the first time since I was 16 years old (that over 40 years ago) I have maintained that goal weight (157) withing 3 pounds ever since. It is as hard or even harder than trying to lose it. At least when you need to lose...especially if you need to lose a lot... people 'get it" but when you are at a healthy trim body weight, people dont get why you still wont eat this or that or do this or that. But I plug away one day at a time. I need to continue doing everyday the same things I did to get here if I want to stay here. And stay here I want. I love how my new body looks, feels and works. So for me, I continue to try to make the best food choices to feed my BODY, not my emotions. I have a strong support system in place now to support me emotionally when I am going through things (as life is always throwing "things" in our path that challenge us) and I have a strong spiritual life to remind me I am not alone and I dont have to do any of it. God handles it all. (as long as I allow him to)

And one of these days, I need to update my photo. that was almost 2 years ago. My beautiful granddaughter is over 2 1/2 now and only a year old in the picture! one thing at a time! (he he he)
