Hi, everyone. Thank you so much for the Motivator of the Day award! I just want anyone who might wonder to know that I am loving life--still a healthy size after 5 years. Here are some images of what I did during the past couple of days:
Hiking to University Falls and back...about 6 mile round trip:
(I am the one in the blue tank top.)
This past weekend, I won a tennis tournament...this picture is from April:
I just want to encourage you...you *can* release all your weight and you *can* keep it off. The best thing I have found is to change the way I think. It takes a lot of work, but it is permanent!
I also prefer the non-diet approach, so I eat all the normal foods of life, including (gasp!) fast food! I never have to worry about what people serve at holidays, picnics or events as I just wait until I am hungry (I can even plan to be hungry) and eat normal foods.
None of this could have been happening for me without a deep faith in God who supports me through all the trials and challenges I have faced...my husband's mid-life crisis, my mother's passing away, my first horse dying and now, my kids are both leaving the nest at the same time! All of these would have caused me to INHALE food and to regain the weight in the past, but having changed how I process my emotions...by going to the Lord who loves me and allowing His will to be done in these challenges...has made all the difference and will continue to do so.
Best wishes and prayers for you on your journey!
