ONE STEP AHEAD


Tuesday, April 08, 2014

I know it isn't about weight. This is embarrassing but also an accomplishment. I wasn't going to share, but I thought I should. In 2007, I stopped overeating and started my recovery. In 2010, I stopped cutting myself. 7 year recovery with overeating and 4 for cutting. In 2011-2012, I weighed 435 pounds. I could barely walk upstairs and refused to take my medications. I was diagnosed as a diabetic and other problems. I started doing one thing at a time. Taking one step at a time. One day at a time. Now it is 2014, I am now 295 pounds. I have lost 150 pounds plus in about 2 and a half years with sickness and exercise since I started my weight loss journey. One day at a time

    Thank you for sharing. You should be proud of your accomplishments. I can easily see the connection. Our lives were painful and we reached for a way to feel comfort if only for a moment. The comfort was short and followed by shame, remorse, regret, anger and self recrimination that left us feeling worse. No wonder we felt badly much of the time.
Your walk to recovery has had enormous challenges. Congratulations! Losing 150+ pounds is awesome. I'm sure you never thought it would be possible. One day at a time is all we have. The past is passed and the future isn't close enough.
Make today the best day of your journey.
