My encouragement is finally here!
Thursday, January 17, 2013
Today I am so encouraged. I have found that I just didn't believe I could lose the weight and get healthier despite all the wonderful information here on Spark People. I read so many blogs that were so encouraging and still thought I couldn't do it.
But today I went to the doctor for a check-up and was so excited to find out that my cholesterol and triclycerides levels have gone down! The doctor's first question was "Are you exercising?" to which I said 'yes'. It really encouraged me to see some results, although thus far my weight has not gone down. I have a nerve entrapment in my foot and am getting physical therapy for it, but it is so sore that it's really hard to make myself exercise. So I've stopped walking and have continued with water aerobics and started riding a bike. Now that something is finally encouraging, I feel that I can keep trying and start working on visualizing the goals I want to achieve.
It is a good day, indeed!
