Life full of ups and downs
Wednesday, July 31, 2013
It is close to a year since I hit my goal weight. My goal was to not yoyo anymore. But life this past year has had more than the normal ups and downs - and my weight also saw some increase. Not sure what role meds had, inactivity due to illness, but weight is going down now. I had a goal weight I just wanted to see if I could get to, but I did not have a weight I planned to maintain at. I need to decide on that yet along with acceptable fluctuation range. In a way, it is all about my response. And that is the same thing I am currently needing to look at with all the ups and downs in my life...what do I want my response to be? Now dealing with my own health issues along with support of my dd and dgks. I tend to be a crisis kind of girl - takes these things to push me to really think so that my activity is based on response and not reaction. It is funny that I started this journey thinking that what I needed to do was simply lose some weight.
The one constant I can count on is God. It is reassuring to know He is watching and I am not alone. He didn't promise life would always be easy but He did promise He would never leave me nor forsake me.
