Change 1 Thing: Day 1

Friday, January 25, 2013

Alright, some simple facts:

1) Last year I finished losing weight and lost a total of 145 pounds.
2) Last year I went through a divorce.
3) This year I found out a man I was growing more and more attached to every day wasn't quite all that he seemed, and it devastated me.
4) In the midst of those stresses, I gained back roughly 20 pounds.
5) I am slowly but surely piecing a life back together--or generating a new one.
6) Part of that endeavor requires that I put my health and wellness back on the map.

I am overwhelmed--so much is changing around me, so much requires what feels like my COMPLETE attention. I have decided to give myself back THIS space to work on my weight loss and wellness goals.

High Weight: 278
Low Weight: 131
Current Weight: 158
Goal Weight: 136

My goal is to go back to basics, to tackle one thing per day, make one change or commitment to change per day. Achieve one thing, every day.

Today's goal: Despite the fact that it is Friday (Read: Party! Celebrate with fooooood and drink!), eat a healthy and satisfying dinner; bypass the cocktail.

Have a great end to the week, sparkfriends.

    Life occasionally gets in the way of our best laid plans. You've already taught yourself how to lose weight and gain fitness . . . I have no doubt that you can re-gain control of your body. And maybe, just maybe, being in control of your body will help you gain more control of your life. {{{{{hugs}}}}}

    Sometimes that is all we can do- one thing at a time, one day at a time.

    Moving one day at a time is the only way to get it done... Welcome back.

    Life! It just never slows down long enough for us to get it all organized and tidy to do what we think we need to to be successful. One thing is doable and this is very wise of you. I too am working on a few things and for now letting the rest kind of lay by the side without any guilt about it. I realize that at least for today, too much is too much and I am destined to do a better job in one area instead of half efforts in many areas. My frustration level is better for sure.
I'm sorry it was such a rough year emoticon

    hang in there - and know you are strong and being tested in a way and you'll pass with flying colors! and like a sword burnished in flames you'll be all the stronger once you get through this stage..
