I am feeling much better now that I see my ticker moving down the way again. I am not even going to focus anymore on the slip I had that made me gain a bunch of weight back from halloween til new years.....ugh -LOL
My starting weight was 333 when I first found sparkpeople, and I have lost 41lbs to date.
I need to be proud.
I am not perfect, I never will be, but for now I have finally gotten to the mark where I know I caught the fishing hook, and Sparkpeople is reeling me in.
Every single person on here gives me some kind of inspiration. All in their individual way, and I am forever going to be grateful.
Lately I have incorporated more healthy foods back into my diet, and fighting the urge to snack endlessly all evening.
I look forward to my small daily challenges.
...and wow, who would have thought that I love my treadmill! I mean come on, I hated so much to work out in the past. I would hate to even stand up in the past.... It was so hard to love myself before I knew I could get myself healthy.... I incorporate my exercise around my 3 year old and 7 year old if she isnt at school and make the best choices throughout the day.
It can be that easy, but most important, patience. I need to be patient to see the results in the long run. Thats why I love looking back on my old journals of what I described myself as, and everything that I hated about being fat... do it, youll be so surprised at what you forget as you lose weight.
It dosent take long to remember once you gain it back... so if you slip, stay on track! Fight the cravings, eat smart, but not too little as that bad also. Drink water water water... and most of all, love yourself.
I am glad I am making progress. Take Care Spark friends, and keep tracking!!
