Hello, Hello, Hello.
So It's been a while since the last time I blogged and logged onto the site, but that doesn't mean I fell off in entirety! I've still been watching what I eat, trying new means of exercise, and learning more and more about my body everyday. And I am truly happy to say that I love myself and my body much more today than I did when I became a member.
Now that statement was not intended to elicit a "whoa is me" type of dialogue, I've always loved myself. But back then, the way I treated myself, my health, was less than loving. And my body paid the price. I spent a lot of time in denial. But the fact was, I was the only one believing that lie. I looked like a hot mess, point blank period. Once I truly accepted it and stop trying to hide it I finally made progress. (Don't you know as soon as I accepted being a l-xl, not the s-m that I was all my life was when I finally started losing all the weight I put on). That's when I learned that getting and staying in the right frame of mind was better than any diet plan I had ever worked on. So instead of turning to food to express my emotions, I meditate and pray, and get my feelings in check.
Now clearly, there is some working out & eating right going on. God is good, but I think he's got better things to do than worry about my waist line. But he does help me get done what I need to get done. I am thankful every day of the lessons that I have learned and I am trying to remain open to many more to come.
