I think I can, I think I can.......

Sunday, January 22, 2012

I know that I've been missing in action for the past three months, but that doesn't mean that have fallen off the wagon. I've been a little derailed at times, but still focusing on the ultimate goal - becoming healthier!

To start with, I've started a new job, after being home for over a year. (Due to a work related injury, surgery, recovery and downsizing) The new job is definitely an adjustment. To start with, the dreaded training period of three weeks sitting in a chair is not conducive to weight loss. (Read: added FIVE pounds). Add getting situated in my new environment, adjusting to a later schedule, not being home to cook meals, etc. (Read: added TWO pounds) and it has been daunting.

Skip forward to today...I have taken off all of that newly added weight and figured out how to incorporate exercise and my favorite Dukan Diet into the new schedule and embracing my new work buddies, found a friend to walk with me at lunch, and ultimately have lost those newly added pounds!!

I have about ten more pounds that I would like to lose, and I think I can....!!! Those life changes definitely cause little speed bumps, but that's all that they do, is slow you down. Don't let them stop you!

(Another update I would like to add, is that my mother had another follow up appointment with her oncologist and her lymphoma is not requiring any changes in her treatment - which is great news!!)

Thanks to all of my SparkFriends that I have been keep me motivated, even when I am distracted by life!

Hugs to all!!
