If somebody was to ask me how i feel at the moment , the answer would be at peace with the world, content and happy. So many things have happened this year, ( i guess that's kind of normal though, as there has been twelve months to get through). As i look back , each month had its own lesson to be learnt and i know i am ending it a richer and happier person. ( although it didnt seem like it whilst i was learning about some things. )
The most valuable thing i think that i learnt is that it is ok to reach out and say i need help... and i dont have to struggle alone. Like the snail that i sometimes liken myself to , i have extended my body out of its shell and found some beautiful people about. People who are willing to help and share their knowledge . Communication is slowly becoming my friend and i am learning it is ok to have an opinion, and to share.
For the first time this year we are ending the holiday season with food and stuff that i dont feel i have to eat just because it is there or i am having a bad day. i am learning it is ok to say, well,i can have a small amount of something i really like to eat , as long as i track it and make the food balance, and it does not become a habit. I am also learning that you can adapt loads of recipes of things that were a no no on most diets to fit in with my healthy eating plan.
i learnt that it is ok to lose weight slowly... because at least it is going, and now i am going to try not to beat myself up over only losing half a pound or a pound at a time.
Have a safe and good new year all .
