Oh, dear...

Tuesday, April 23, 2013

The past month has been rough. I am not making excuses because I am the one responsible for making the choices in my life. Well, I AM an Emotional Eater. I did not weigh myself for ages, I guess. I just did and I am up to 173 pounds. I started to cry. My husband wrapped his arms around me and said he loves me no matter what. It did not soothe my feelings. I feel like a monster. But, then, I started thinking how happy I was coming DOWN from 239 lbs to reach 173 pounds. So, maybe I can retrain my brain to think I am coming DOWN, instead of going up. So, back on the train to Thinsville (Thank you Abhilashi). Whadaya think? Too, my physical therapist said no hard exercising. Mostly sitting exercises, unless Tom is there to catch me if I fall.

    You have some great support and there are plenty of chair exercises that you can do that get your heart pumping and can even help strengthen you (core. arms, legs) Spark people has some pretty good videos. Just don't give up. Every small step forward is better than going back. You can do it!! emoticon emoticon

    Aw, I'm so sorry dear. I know how hard the battle is. So glad you have such a supportive husband. It helps me to think of the journey in teeny, tiny steps, and sometimes that's all I can just that one small step. At the end of the day sometimes it's the only thing I have to celebrate, but at least it's something, and lol, you better believe I count it! You can do it! So happy you are trying again :D
