Okay Fellow Sparkers - This is ME! At least me on a good day. I was so glad to see the feed on saying something positive about food. I like so many others get drug down by my weight, my body, my failures, setbacks, my search for the answer...but here I have new friends. Real people who struggle just like me yet inspire me to keep doing what it takes to be healthy in mind, body, spirit. And to all you Believers about there- they are God sent.
Today I am strong. I am happy with myself. I have not lost the 7lbs I have recently gained but my body feels strong and agile. My rings are loose. My clothes feel good. My eating is Normal not so awesome that I will see a 7 lb Loss at tomorrow 's weigh in but good. I've been reading all over this website and questioning others, listening to despair and to hope. We have all seen both. My despair is the 7lbs regained but my hope is the 33 not regained! I've had to clear out some baggy clothes. I have pushed myself to more drive in my exercise. I'm fighting a very personal battle and winning because I will not let anyone drive me back unhappiness that brought on so much weight over and over again. If I gain weight, I will take the responsibility for allowing it. OH YES, I am still hurting and want COMFORT but tonight food is not the answer. Please keep me in your prayers.
Thank you to all who drop by purposefully or not. This is how I have found my motivation.
Today in this moment I am positive. Keep sparking.
Hope to get some photos together for a summer time post on 1 yr Spark anniversary.
