The gifts of faith and continuity

Friday, December 09, 2011

Just stopped by a team member's page to congratulate her on a tremendous weight loss success. I am really happy for her.
My weight loss is not happening right now. I have been collecting fluids in my legs and feet, and the sack that is my humungous hernia. I gained the last couple of times on the scale, so I'm rethinking my attitude now, because to feel badly about the gain is stupid thinking. I won't cry in vain over a water gain. I just recently blogged that a gain hurt whether it was water or weight. I'm not going there anymore.
I'm giving myself the gifts of faith and continuity. I will continue to work my plan whether the weight comes off soon, or later. I am doing the best I can, so what more can I do?
I track my food very carefully, and Marathons are OUT! I can't make it to my mailbox! I did one exercise video this week which is one more than I did for the past few weeks. I'm in it to win it, even if I cross the finish line last. I'm on a journey with God leading the way. I am following where He leads,,,,,,,,,I just need to stay on the path. I can do that!

    Stay hydrated. Remember the first sign of dehydration is fatigue.

    To me, the important thing is to never give up - I did that earlier this year and it didn't help! I think you need to keep the "that's more than I did yesterday or last week" mindset and stay positive.
    I know my body retains fluids - I can show a 5 pound gain overnight if eat eat salty foods (and I do!). Then, I get frustrated and eat to comfort myself - a vicious circle.
    We need to accept the reality of our lives and our bodies and do the best we can every day. It's helping me to keep telling myself "Just for today."
    Stay determined and strong!
