After a couple months hiatus I am back on spark people and back to my healthy lifestyle! My life has been turned upside down. I have found out my husband has been unfaithful and we are in the process of getting a divorce. While in the process of moving out of the home we rented, I dropped one of my 5 pound dumbbells on my big toe and fractured it. The last couple of months have been the lowest of my life. I haven’t been exercising or eating particularly well, but I have managed to lose a few pounds, I don’t know exactly how much, but I have gone down a size in clothes. With a broken toe, I could hardly walk, so most exercise was out. My husband paid for my gym membership, so now I have to learn to exercise without the gym. My kids and I have moved in with my parents. I will be returning to school next month to finish my degree in teaching. I am moving on and not looking back. My life will be better, healthier. The most important thing I have learned, is that in order to be “healthy”, we have to be healthy all over, mind, body and spirit. I was in a very emotionally destructive relationship, and now I am working towards complete health.
I have been seeing a counselor for a while. It was been a tremendous help. I have learned how to “feel” my feelings, rather than eat them. I truly believe this is the key to living at a healthy weight. I never knew how to identify and express what I was truly feeling, so I ate. I ate when I was mad, I ate when I was glad, I just ate. Now I am learning to stop and say “right now I feel ______”. And if I am sad or mad or just down, I can put words to it. Now I don’t run to the fridge or the drive thru to numb myself.
Since I am now looking at returning to the dating world. I am more determined than ever to get in the best shape of my life. Not because my weight or size of my clothes define me. I am a great person no matter what I weigh. But when I do find someone new to love, I want to be active. I want to go skiing and hiking and kayaking, I am done sitting on the couch and going to the movies all the time. I am starting a brand new life, and this time I want it to be a active, healthy life!

My goal is to lose about 110 pouns. But I don't just want a number on a scale. I want to FEEL better, have more energy and enjoy life more! When I lose more weight I want to try some athletic things that I have never done like, surfing, snowboarding, kayaking and long hikes!

    Happy Birthday to You!!

    Born today (March 1), you know how to serve others quite well, and yet there is often the chance that you will turn a blind eye to your own immediate needs because you are so used to doing for others what needs to be done. This is sure to have its consequences, for eventually your own strength and ability will deteriorate for lack of care and attention, with the expected result that you will not be able to perform as expected for others. Personal care is an essential part of your private and public success; you mustn't let yourself go without for too long a period.

    You have a rather wicked sense of humor, and will often laugh at things that others simply do not find funny in the least. You may have to learn that upon occasion it is better not to laugh at all than to laugh in a way that others deem inappropriate, as it is important for your work and personal contentment that you get along with others.

    Today’s Pisces Horoscope: You may not be able to practice what you need to do successfully, which means, of course, getting it right the first time.

    Hope your day is wonderful!
