Hi, Lyn! I'm sorry to hear of the loss of your home. I understand about being back at the starting line. I am there, too, after my car accident and foot injury. It's been 3 years since I could eat and exercise properly, but I'm working on it now. I have to admit, proper nutrition was almost always under my control, but I was too stressed/exhausted/demoralized to work on it. I'm working on it now, though. We can do this together. Just take it one day at a time. Hugs from NM-- Rie

I'm glad for you that you are starting over with your health and weight loss goals. I have days when I have to give myself a figurative "kick in the pants" to get moving. Once I start, the snowball effect starts to work for me instead of against. My energy grows and with it my attitude improves. As my energy and attitude improve I feel more like getting moving and getting healthier, and so on...
I like the verses and quote you chose on the bottom of your posting. Great focus points.
Losing a home!!! What an awful, stressful thing to happen. I hope you are starting to feel a bit better. No wonder you're sad and tired and disgusted! Baby steps are required here - pick one thing to be happy about yourself about. I dread writing down what I eat but I started about a week ago and it helps me to see those words and my water intake. Don't give up!
I have arrived, I am home In the here, in the now I am solid, I am free In the ultimate I dwell Buddha
Good luck to you Lyn! I'm sure you will do fine. I'm kinda in the same boat. Feeling fat and bloated right now and disgusted with myself. I re-started again this morning and I'm hoping I can make it. I have to get to the point that my legs and back don't hurt all the time! I want to run and do things this summer!!

Lyn. I am so sorry to hear about your troubles in the storms. I can't imagine how difficult it was for you and your family to lose your home in the storm. that you are beginning again so soon afterward. Is there anything I can do for you? ,that's what I do.

I'm starting over (again). I'm at my highest weight ever. I feel sick and sad and disgusted with myself. I deserve better than what I've done to my body. I am stronger than this! I am taking back control starting right now!
When we lost our home in the Colorado flood in September I guess I just gave up on myself. It was hard losing everything and starting over from square one. I gave up walking. I gave up eating healthier. I gave up on my goal of walking in the Bolder Boulder.
Today is a new day and I'm going to make better choices. I probably won't be perfect. That's okay. What's not okay is giving up because I'm not perfect.
