LIfe...Stress...and Starting Over!!! You Can Do It Too!

Wednesday, March 21, 2012

It's been quite awhile since I've made a Blog entry, but today seems to be just the day for doing it.
A lot has happened over the past year...and I think it's called "Life". My husband has had to endure several surgeries to his eyes because of Graves Disease and lost his job over all of can't drive a fork lift, let alone a car, if you are having vision problems.
I have been his sole driver for the past two years as a result of this. My father who lived with us, also suffered two strokes just before Christmas and then a broken hip. We ended up bringing him back home and cared for him with the assistance of Hospice and then lost him in January. These past 2 years have actually been an emotional roller coaster ride and we have had our share of stress related issues to endure. far as weight loss goes...that has actually been nill. The good news is that I have gained some weight back, but not more than I was when I started my weight loss journey. So husband and I have decided to start our new journey together.
We have broken out our old stationary bicycle and have started our new diets...or should I say...our new way of eating healthy and taking care of ourselves. No more laying back and being the victims. It's a brand new day.
I'm writing this today because I know how difficult it can be to change your weight ticker when it goes the wrong way.
Don't be afraid of starting over. Life everyone. We all have stresses in our lives that get thrown at us and it can take it's toll on us...weight wise and in other ways.
Erase those thoughts that you just can't do this because you have to keep starting over.
You only lose if you give up. Remember....Today is a brand new day and you will feel good when you make the decision to start again.
So...Here we go again...ha ha. Just laugh...and DO IT! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Life seems to run in cycles . It helps me when I am going threw a bad time to think of these quote, "This is just a moment in my life, not my whole life". When you get to the good times remember that bad times will come again and think of ways you might can handle all the stress better so you will be prepared. Then like you say, sometimes we just can't handle things as good as we wish and we use food for comfort or like a pill to calm us down and not fuel. Whenever we get off track or for whatever reason as sometimes good times and celebrations can put us off course. Best to not beat ourselves up and just dust our self off and begin again. Everyday is "A new day" that we can work on " a new me". God bless you.
