I've changed my page, changed my ticker and changed my attitude. Thanks friends, for once again, reminding me I'm not alone with these thoughts and doubts.

I need to focus more on what I've done instead of how far I need to go. I have to remember that I've lost almost 140 pounds... that I've walked and jogged numerous 5k's... I've climbed rocks... gone for long bike rides... and changed my and my family's life for the better.

For me to move forward, I have to keep looking back and reminding myself of the positive changes I've made.

    Good for you! What a great attitude. It is important for us to remember that this is truly a lifestyle and not just something tondo "until" (until I lose 159 lbs, until I can wear my skinny jeans, until the class reunion). You have set yourself and your family on the path of wellness. And I love the sassy hairstyle!

    So glad to hear that you're feeling better and more positive. We're in this for the long haul and although that means there will be lots of positives, there will also be some times when your energy and motivation just seems to lag and you feel really tired. Those times will happen--the important thing is that you pick yourself up and keep on going. I know you can do it!

    Sometimes we all go through phases of self-doubt and we all feel tired. It's during those moments that a look back to where we came from can really make all the difference. A reminder of the road that we have walked and all the things that WE have changed are sometimes all we need to refocus, regain motivation and move on.
I'm glad you're feeling better Holly. This journey may not be easy but it's definitely worth it. So, let's do our best together.

At some point in a near future you will be finally at the end of your weight loss journey, and you will start maintenance. That will be an other challenge, but think about all that shopping you will be able to do!! emoticon

A lot of good things come from changes! emoticon
