I have to say I'm very glad to see December/January go. The past two months haven't been good at all: my mom's surgery, the holidays, no sleep, binge eating, stress, stress, and more stress. Come on February!
I've spent the past week getting back on track--it's been difficult, but I believe I've done it. I've pulled my Fitbit back out (not sure why I ever stopped wearing it), dusted off the treadmill, and have been trying to log every bite I take. And it's working! I'm almost back down to where I was before everything hit the fan. 5 more pounds to go and I'll be there. I'm confident it'll happen.
When I look at my original goal when I started back to Sparkpeople, I'm 33 pounds behind at this point. This is a goal I had due to the fact that my son is getting married in July (oldest son--first one to get married). I am also confident that I will 'catch up' to my goal--maybe not this month...maybe not the next month--but I WILL catch up to where I wanted to be.
I begin every day thinking about how good God has been to me. Even though I had a very difficult past two months, He was with me all the way. I have to remember to thank Him for holding me up when I doubt I could do it myself. And now that I'm back on track things are really looking up! The gained weight is coming off. We are getting an unexpected small windfall of cash (bonus/tax refund) to help pay off some bills that have been dragging us down. AND I got a raise at work! God is great!
So, on this first day of February I say: I'm ready! BRING IT ON!!
