5 months.......still maintaining!!

Thursday, July 14, 2011

Where did June go??

I'm celebrating 5 months at my goal today! I got an award at my TOPS meeting Monday night for being in leeway too!! It was a neat charm which I added yesterday to my TOPS charm necklace!! It's been quite a journey and it has not been easy, but I continue especially well with the exercise. That is so good for all of us in so many ways. It helps with your metabolism....boosting it; helps you stay young, sleep better, burn more calories even hours after you've finished, helps with depression too!!

I still have a little trouble eating slower; I have to make a conscious effort here, but I do keep my veggies snacks out all day long. I just love red pepper slices and carrot sticks...not the baby carrots; they just don't taste as good to me! I bought raspberries today with my raincheck.....4 half pints for $5.00!!! WOW.....that's a deal; like eating candy....that's good for you too!!

For anyone struggling, always remember how special you are and how worth it is to get healthy! Every step you take is one step closer to your goal, so keep it movin!

Thanks too, for all the great blogs I've read recently....another reason for coming here today!

Always remember, too how much God loves you and cares about you......He only wants GOOD things for you....and health is right up there!!

    This is really terrific news! All those morning "walk-n-chats" are really paying off!

    Five months MAINTAINING - now that is an achievement!! The roller-coaster of working hard to lose and then gaining it back happens so often! It's great to see how the lifestyle change instead of crash diets is the way to go. Great job!!
