VICTORY!!! in the most STRESSFUL week EVER!!!!

Saturday, March 17, 2012

When the week started I had everything planned out for the week. My meals, exercise,H2O,even some me time,I thought "I got this covered". Then Monday came and phone call after phone call,put me and my WHOLE family in the most stress we ever had, since losing our 3yr old son!

To be brief,my MIL was diagnosed with Lukemia,her 1st cousin is battling Pancreatic cancer,her(my MIL) lost her BIL to a heart attack,my husbands aunt(MIL sister) is still battling her breast Cancer,her brother(MIL) has full blown AIDS and to top it off,a very,very close friend of ours (who has been healthy his whole life!),was diagnosed with throat and stomach Cancer.

I was crying and praying literally ALL day,because they all are close to losing their lives! On a good note,my MIL's Chemo therapy has been going very well,but she's not out the woods,we're all still praying and will continue to.

I felt so sick at times I couldn't imagine eating anything! That's when I took a deep breath and decided to trust that GOD will see me and family through all of this.

The Victory comes from me just continuing on with my daily routines and focus on positive stuff like:

I lost 3lbs at today's weigh in!!!!
I lost 3 1/2 inches from all over my body(I do once every month)!!!!
My clothes feel so much better!!!!
My workout clothes(Lycra),are fitting me a lot better!!!!
I LOVE looking in the mirror now(not vainly)!!!!
I believe that I'm a very beautiful women who's loved very much(this is my mental fat issue I have been dealing with for a while,and still am)!!!!
Finally,I'm just living and loving life to the fullest!!!!

This week I've learned that things can change in a day,so I need to enjoy life NOW,NOT later when I reach my goal weight. That's my advice to anyone reading this,enjoy today,live today.

    I think we all need reminding now and again to live life now and for today as you don't know what will happen tomorrow. So sorry to hear your news, wishing you and your family well & best wishes for the rough patch that has come along to test you all.
