my trip around town

Sunday, November 15, 2009

I am trying to find ways to reward myself instead of using food. I went to a craft show at a local church. It was not what I expected but was nice to look around.
THEN!!!! Then I decided that I needed to purchase jeans. I have my huge pants (thankfully too big to wear) and then the one other pair that has a zipper situation. After one embarrassing situation I decided I will no longer wear those.
I am thrifty and popped into the Goodwill. Brace yourselves............
I am now able to fit comfortably into a size 14. I never thought in a bizillion years I would ever say that I was happy to be in a size 14. Then again, I never thought that I would gain as much weight as I did. So I started thinking about things that I have done that I never even thought of.....
train for a 5 k
run more than a mile
wear spandex like workout pants in public
lift weights
jump into a cake
be comfortable in a gym
forgive myself for not participating in OA
go to the store without makeup or worrying what I look like
read inspirational religious literature
be ok with being alone
say, "No, I am not going to be able to_____" and not feel guilty forever
be ok without dating or going out socially
The list could go on and on.
Sp has opened up a whole new world for me. I am so thankful that I can come here and get information, support, and encouragement!
You are wonderful- Thank You!!!!
