This was my first week on SparkPeople and I feel I have pretty much been married to this site all week. I have been inspired and educated by so many of the stories here. I never could have imagined the outpouring of support I have received in such a short amount of time. This really has been the medicine I needed to pull me out of the depression cycle I was in. I actually lost 5 pounds this week and I don't even miss the TV. I have been up and moving around and I can feel my self-esteem already starting to lift. I am praying now to get through the second week, because while I am still motivated, my body is so SORE! I did some squatting exercises with a medicine ball that seemed so easy at the time and now I can barely walk. Stairs are tough, but I've been trying to push through and use them anyway. I took it easier today and did all my workouts as walking and cycling and stayed far away from the squats!
Don't these look so innocent all stacked up in a neat little pile. Don't let them fool you!
My biggest accomplishment this week is that I worked through my emotions and I didn't let disappointment or negative energy from others keep me from what was good for me.
