A Big Difference in Me.

Wednesday, July 04, 2012

So I've been hovering around 230 for three to four weeks now. I've been under more stress than usual, and it is showing up on the scale. I have learned to recognize my emotional eating and hunger for what it is. That doesn't mean that I've learned to stop it, but I am making progress. The big difference that I am seeing, and that I am super excited about is that I know I am not giving up on my goals to get healthy. In the past, if I would not see results or have a rough patch, I would totally give up on my diet. But for some reason this time it is working. I am really learning new habits and new ways to think about my life. I no longer feel guilty about bad choices, or hate myself because I am fat. In fact, it's quite the opposite. I think I've actually learned to love myself...right here and right now. I've accepted that I am not perfect, nor do I need to be to deserve love from others, or from myself. I am human, I make mistakes, but I also make great choices day after day to improve my health. I can't say enough how much the support of my Spark Friends has encouraged and motivated me along the way. I truly thank you from the bottom of my heart! May you all have a healthy and happy 4th with your friends and family. God Bless America!
