Seeing results!

Thursday, January 17, 2013

So, I have been faithfully exercising for the past two weeks. I pretty much had to start over after our son died in a car accident in December. There was so much going on that my weigh loss goal got shoved to the back burner. But I have been very determined these past weeks, and I have lost 5 pounds! I am so excited! Now whenever I don't feel like doing my daily exercise, I just remember the 5 lbs I have lost so far, and remember what an amazing feeling it is! This time I am going to do it! emoticon

    Thank you all for your kind words. Losing a child is an indescribable feeling. It leaves a big gaping hole in your life that may not ever be filled in. I struggle with depression, and this almost pushed me over the edge. But after countless hours of grieving and praying, I have decided that I can't just curl up in a ball and let life pass me by. I have three other children that deserve a healthy, functioning Mom. And exercise is a great way to get out my frustrations and aggressions.

    Congrats on your positive attitude after your loss. I also feel the same way about exercise. It seems to help pick me up many days. Keep remembering the 5 pounds lost, never give up and those 5 pounds will turn into 10, then 15, etc. Keep up the good work.
