Yes, the sad truth is I am a person with a mental illness that is chronic. I know some of you will think, what does this have to do with weight loss or fitness? Everything! When I am faced with something like a relapse, I am the same old person who reaches for food and doesn't exercise! I isolate....although I am pretty good at getting out lately....I am not very talkative nor do I share with those close to me. Sad truth is....I feel a bit hopeless and wonder to myself...when does it stop? Can I get off this roll a coaster?
I am encouraged by my latest blood tests results, so all is not bad. I am doing very well on the pre-diabetes. As a matter of fact...the doctor said I don't have to worry about it, as long as I continue to eat well and exercise. I still eat whatever I want, I just watch my portion size and everything in moderation!! I have even started going out to eat again. Last night it was an Asian restaurant with sushi. It was very tasty and I did weigh a little more this morning, it was definitely worth it. I am trying to see how I do, especially with the holidays coming up.
Let's face it, I like food!! I will never give up my favorite foods. I will continue to eat them in moderation and not as often as before SP. I have the tools to make it through the holidays and I am going to keep trying to eat healthy and exercise. I needed to blog today and get all these thoughts off my brain.
Have a good day and keep sparking! Even on days that are tough, when I am on SP, I feel better about myself. I will conquer this relapse! I know I will!!
