Time to recover...

Saturday, November 24, 2012

As I was visiting Sparkfriend's pages I got to ~INDYGIRL'S page and this thought came to my mind:

It's time for me to recover from the loss of our friend in April 2011. I was maintaining my weight loss very well until that day when Rick passed away unexpectedly. He was only 53 years old. He was my husband's best friend Rick's wife and I were becoming close friend too. We were becoming two Couple Best Friends. We had plans to travel together. They live in North Carolina and we are in Texas. We had plans to meet in May 2011 but God's plan changed that in April. I have used that event as an excuse as to why my weight is creeping back up. This morning I am back up 20 pounds from my original goal. I want to start to heal and renew my drive to get the weight off and keep it off.

I am however THANKFUL that I have not regained all 75 pounds that I lost. I have been fighting the urge to just let go and I will continue the battle today.

THANK YOU Sparkpeople, Sparkfriends. If it weren't for you, I'm surely be back to 220 or more. I still love food. :)

    Good attitude, Julie!!!
It was INDYGIRL'S blog that prompted my blog, also. Guess she has a gift for getting us all to think of our own situations!
God has His plan in all of our lives and we must deal with these various situations.
You WILL get back to that loss and posting your weight in ticker is a step in the right direction!!!

    I'm so sorry for your loss. Grieving always throws one's life into chaos. The good news is that you have done so well as you dealt with your loss. My heart goes out to all of you.

    Every day is a chance for renewal.
How wonderful you didn't regain all your weight!

Wishing you much success!
