I can't believe how things have switched

Saturday, December 01, 2012

So when I first signed on to sparkpeople in May. I was 40 pounds over weight. Was not exercising regularly and not taking care of myself. I was ready for change. It started with just tracking what I ate, then my exercise and then my weight. It's amazing how if we don't pay attention to the details of our life the weight packs on. I have lost over my goal by 2.5 pounds. I'm not overly skinny at all. I'm right in my range I'm almost 5'2" range is 115 - 135 ( I weigh 124.5 as of today) I have had new challenges. My husband left 4 weeks ago for another woman. My last child went to college in Sept. and I have had financial problems up the waz zoo. The last of my weight lose was because of my husband leaving but the rest I worked really hard for and I'm proud of that. I'm trying to be a confident woman right now bit hard but running has helped!!! I just want everyone to know how great this site is. I get the support I need, ability to focus on details, and other people going through similar things. I had a co worker ( I hadn't seen in a while) Tell me I was always gorgeous but now WOW!! It is so nice to hear. It does bother me that I had neglected myself so much in the past but my goal is to never let it get to that again. Ya, my husband has decided to be with another woman. It sucks but I'm still a better person today. I've got to keep heading in the direction and see what I've accomplished and tackle the future.

    Sorry to hear about the fact that your husband turned out to be a jerk. You will be better off without him. Congrats on your weight loss and getting your life back on track! emoticon emoticon

    I am glad you are making some sense of this. How great to lose the weight you had gained. Just a new focus. I don't know if you were running 5k's before, but look at you now. Sorry to hear about your breakup with your husband. It seems you are now the same physical woman as you once were. Who knows!

    Congratulations! You're doing a great job!

    I went through a similar situation with my ex husband 20 years ago. It's not a cliche to say that things do get better with time. emoticon
