Fare Thee Well

Monday, December 31, 2012

'Tis time to say goodbye to 2012.
To say good night and put it to bed.

I am grateful, most grateful for each year, month, day, hour, minute and second that God blesses me with.

Highlights of this past year:

I went from being totally disabled to partially disabled.
I regained the weight I lost pre-surgery.
I worked at a job, albeit part time, February through June, then another job September through November, then back to the first place November up til now, and I was hired permanently.
I am using less for pain most days now.
I can drive more than I did a year ago.
I can move, and stand, and sit better than a year ago.
This was the year for healing from the previous year's surgeries.

Now, as the new year begins, I am ready to move forward and work at losing the weight I gained and to make my life healthier, and me trimmer.
I just logged my food for the first time in a long time. I didn't fudge it, and didn't look at it until I logged it all.

Next year, one year from now, I want to be able to say I have lost weight, that I am healthier, trimmer, more agile, stronger, more flexible, able to balance better.

The new year has me looking at a job I really enjoy as a permanent one, with testing for a position I am really interested in.
Due to vitamins, and biotin, my hair and nails are healthier. My blood pressure has been dropping again, but I have got to get some weight loss, and inches loss, and put myself on the healthy track again.
I am aiming for creativity, writing, my art, and being a better person.
I am taking the time to calm myself, and rid myself of stuff that bogs down my brain and body.

One day at a time, one step at a time.
I am aiming for better health, because Getting healthy IS still my job.
Perhaps tonight I'll dance out the old year, and sing in the new, since my son and his friends plan to be with me since my dh is working.

Happiest of New Year's to you all!

    You have come a long way in healing Deborah. Things are in place for you to take the next step in your health of losing the weight. You did make things a lot harder on yourself by A: not tracking your food, and B: not checking it until you are finished eating for the day. The number one reason I lost my weight and have kept it off is accurate tracking of every little thing I ate, good or bad. Its helpful to do it after each meal for two reasons: the first to see how many calories I have left for the remaining meals and snacks, and second to see what nutrients I may be short in. If you weigh and measure everything you will soon see how very little can quickly add up. I am not good at guessing and hope I don't ever have to. I rarely eat out so that is not a concern for me.
    Good luck with your goals in the New Year and I am really hoping you get that position you want! Knowing how smart you are, you will probably Ace that test!!
