I Lost!

Wednesday, March 23, 2011

It is paying off! After a good week or so of really working my program, I lost a couple of pounds and I feel much less bloated. It feels good! I had a good week but not a perfect week and I still lost. I just kept getting back to center and paid attention to what I was eating and why. I have even been fighting some anxiety and depression and I haven't given up and turned to food to cope. This is huge for me! My success this week has me hopeful that I can continue this way and reach my goals of a healthy, vital life. My knee is not recovering as well as we had hoped that it would, though all is not yet lost, and that has been a little discouraging especially as I try to find exercise that I can do. Regardless, I will push on! I am having much more success with this process by being very kind and respectful to myself. I think that is a key. It feels different to sit with my feelings, rather than stuffing them down with food. That could be why I am feeling so anxious and depressed at times, but it is better to feel it and work through it than numb myself with food. So, the journey continues. I am thankful to all of my spark friends for encouragement, support and most of all - inspiration! emoticon
