A little worse for wear....

Wednesday, July 10, 2013

Ok guys I have been away from spark people for a while now and I am not proud of it. I mean we all fall off the wagon once in a while I suppose. Although I didn't just fall off the wagon I fell off and ran it seems because everything I learned and worked for just went out the window when I stepped on the scale at my doctor's office and found out I gained over ten pounds!! I am truly devastated by this gain and what's worse is that now I have to be on medication for high blood pressure and my doctor said that I am in serious risk of having a stroke. Talk about a wake up call huh. Although maybe all this was just the push I needed to get my butt in gear and just make a true effort to lose this weight. I am determined not to let this setback bring me down. No matter how hard it seems right now it will be much harder if I do nothing about getting the weight off. I am young and I am longing to have children with my husband and just be able to go do things that I watch my friends do while I am on the sidelines. I finally truly feel like I have hit rock bottom with all this weight and I also feel like I got the wake up call that I needed to get me focused on what is most important. I need to focus on me now and getting better and feeling better. No looking back now I need to do this now or never. It will only get better from here.

    It happens to all of us. Maybe this is just what you needed to get back on track.

    You can do it!

    The lady who wrote "Harry Potter" has a great quote that I see floating around Pinterest all the time:

    "And so rock bottom became the solid foundation on which I rebuilt my life."

    Rock bottom isn't bad. It's what we build on that rock that matters!!!

    Some people have an easier time losing weight than others. Mine journey is a constant struggle. I have many health issues but I can tell you it is worth the effort to make the necessary changes in your life. It doesn't have to be all gung ho and all at once. One step at a time will get you up and running. Just keep adding another step and another until you're going great. Yes sometimes we gain some weight back but don't let that derail you. Could be a million reasons besides food causing it. There are many victories in your journey that won't have a thing to do with the scales like your clothes fitting better and then getting loose. You're able to do more things or do things longer. Don't dismiss them as nothing. If you fall down, get back up and start again just don't abandon the journey. You're so worth the effort.
