This is my first blog entry. Feeling very sparked today...even though fighting some cold or flu bug. It's day 3 of this new journey back to the woman I recognize. Have not exercised really but have moved much more than I have in a long time, so considering I'm not feeling well...I'm proud of myself overall. Have tracked my food and increased water and fluids greatly. Goal are set, both short term and long term, and I've made a vow never to buy larger size clothing again.
Seeing my family last night was a real motivator as well! My son, whom I love with all my heart, and his beautiful, sweet fiancÚ are to be married in September. This is my first child to be married and I'm thrilled. His wedding is a fantastic goal to look my best and feel my best in every sense of the word.
This June I'll become a 'great aunt' which is another blessing! This will be our first baby in the family in almost 24 years. Another terrific reason to be in the best health and shape I possibly can for myself and my family. God is so good!
60 lbs to lose...this is not such a big deal folks! I've survived 2 marriages (although 1 doesn't really count...8 months...good grief...), domestic violence, losing both parents, financial ruin, lost my house, my self esteem, my soul. God, family, and friends brought me back to the strong woman God wired me to be. Over the few years those extra pounds found a home in me, I was a lost, sad heart...but no more. Now...joy resides in me again. So, 60 lbs to lose? I've been to hell and back, this 60 lbs is no more than a whisper in the wind to be carried gently away.
Feel the joy...forget the pain. Patti ~
