Finally I'm coming out of my

Saturday, June 08, 2013

After having several emotional set backs in my life, I think I'm finally back on track and ready to get back to my goals. For several weeks I felt such a sadness and heaviness in my spirit. But I'm feeling that lifting and my spirit coming back! Praise God!!

Even through those difficult weeks, I kept going to my weekly weigh ins. Don't think I didn't have those negative thoughts like, "Maybe I won't go this week, I know I didn't do that well" or "Maybe I'll just give up and eat what I want to". We all have those thoughts... One week I had a gain, the first gain this entire year...the next week I took off that gain and a little more...the next week I "turtled" which means I remained the same. BUT, this week I lost 2.6 lbs.!! I'm proud of myself for not giving up, and continued the best I could to remain on my program. Even though my eating wasn't much different, I think my system slowed down due to me being so sad. With help from my Spark Friends and my group I go to on Thursday nights, I made it through. It means so much to have people to lean on to help us through those difficult times. Thank you~

Now, I'm going to get my walking shoes on and knock out a couple of miles...

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

    Congrats on getting 'over the hump"! Persistence pays off in the long run, I'm glad that you kept at it even when you really didn't want to :)
