Not just to others but to yourself.
I received the nicest letter from one of you members jsut now. she ahs read my blogs over the years and knows of my stuggles not only with my weight issues but my health as well. April 17th marks my 4 year anniversary here on Spark people.
I ahve tried to motivate you all into a success story and jsut this week I sent in my own success story with before and after pictures. I've lost about 80 pounds. Yes it's been a struggle for me. I'm not GOD I ahve lots of flaws and endured lots of pain and I ahte to exercise.
I am legally blind with a guide dog Leone a lovely yellow lab who encouraages my walking. Because of a diagnosis in November with Myasthenia Gravis I ahve used that as an excuse for not exercising but my Dr.'s are pushing me to do so just use common sense in knowing my limits.
I'm type 2 diabetic and this is such a struggle for me in itself. I had a follow up Dr. appt. Tuesday after lab work & brougyht my A1c down from 8.2 to 5.8. I am very proud of myself. thanks to SP diabetes support and other motivators.
I have overcome my Emotional Eating after a diabetic blackout and fall down a flight of hard wooden stairs. this was my wake up call. I am learing not to reward myself with sweets when i do something right.
Don't use excuses for your bad habits. Know you aren't alone in your struggles. there is aways someone out there worst off than yourself.
Not only am I legally blind I am profound deaf with the aid of a Cochlear implant. I raised a daughter as a single mom. she's celebrating her 22nd birthday next week.
Come on Team! Inspire me!
