Motivation for You to Move Slowly

Wednesday, June 22, 2011

Okay, I did it!! I updated my Spark Page. If anyone is paying attention they will see the section in which the record comes to a screeching halt!

I've put about 45 lbs of weight back on in recovering from adrenal exhaustion and hypothyroidism. All due to the rate and intensity of training I stuck with for over 3 years. I've definitely learned to be a much better trainer because of all this. I'm starting my own online business in hopes to help others avoid this path, giving them a place with safe information. And help women push past fears in the gym. ( www.facebook.com/girlzcu

or www.girlzcurl2.com/blog ) It's time I gave back.

Anyway... so I updated my Spark Page yet I haven't updated my weight ticker yet. This is so hard for me 'cause it ain't pretty. And even though I've "confessed" the weight gain, it seems a lot different than putting it out there so visually.

There is a blog post waiting for the things I've gained through this unfortunate circumstance I've found myself in. For one I'm not the same person I used to be no matter if I've put weight back on. It wasn't by choice or in the same manner as before. Letting go of the mind games I play with myself is tough, but I'm working on it.

I'll update that ticker Monday! Better than "I'll start my diet on Monday", right!? Hopefully in this process I will not only help people, but also help motivate you to move at a slower pace. All we have is time. :)

    You are motivational to say the least. I too have gained back a bit of the weight that I have lost in the four years of being a SP member. I am 5' tall and currently weigh around 120. I stopped using the scale about two months ago. I wanted to get down to 105 and was 109 last year but slipped back up. Trying to fix things in your life comes with a price I guess. Your honesty is inspirational. Keep up the good work.

    I understand what you are talking about the weight gain. I to have gained back some lds. Not sure why, becasue I am still walking and moving and eating pretty close to the right foods, and the ones that aren't right I eat a lot less of.

    I wish you well and a speedy healthy recovery. I am on facebook also look me up if you like.

    I've been really beat up. This is part of the reason I came to sparks. Had some adrenal issues.

    What I learned is that you can fix yourself with help and you seem to be good at that. If you need any help or want to ask me questions just inbox me. You will note that I've had numerous surgeries as well as complications because my body was angry with me.

    You have motivated me soooo much! I'm sorry you are dealing with an illness but I am sure with your knowledge and some time you will get back to a sense of happy/normal.
