Try it AgAiN

Tuesday, April 26, 2011

Ok, so I never thought I would end up in this position again. I never banked on an injury that would prevent me from running and exercising... and the onset of depression that came with it. Over the course of 6 months the pounds slowly began to add up. I did it again; "it" being I gained 18 lbs of the 25 that I lost. Yesterday I came to the reality that "it is what it is" and I can either get back in my healthy lifestyle or remain in the pit. The pit is self pity and anger at myself for doing "it" again. Yesterday I decided that the healthy me was SO MUCH BETTER than the pit. I ate healthy again today. Whew! I also chose to get up and run in the wind at 5 a.m. and eat right again today. I pray I will make the right decisions each day that will bring my body and mind to a healthy state once again. Moreover, I pray that I will choose this forever regardless of my physical ability. I'm thinking about joining the bootcamp tomorrow for extra motivation.

    Thank you for the encouragement SPOOKIEDOO & THINAGAIN66! I am happy to announce that a few little changes in a couple days made a big difference. My scale said YUP it's time by rewarding me with 4lbs down from Monday a.m. After all of these years I finally know what works for me with the help of Spark People's nutrition tracking. Now I'm really motivated to stay on track.

    We all have setbacks. What you do after a set back is what counts. I gained some of my weight back during a depressive episode. It's frustrating to have to lose the weight you've already lost but if you put your mind to it you can do it. I know you've got this, YOU CAN DO THIS! emoticon emoticon emoticon
