Being Honest With Myself
Thursday, March 29, 2012
In 2011 I lost 60 pounds. WooHoo! Since October 2011 I gained back 35 pounds. BooHoo! Anyhow, today I actually recorded my actual current weight in the weight tracker. It was difficult to see the weight change to 35 pounds lost instead of 60 pounds lost... Honesty is the first step right???? Got to face the facts and stop being in denial if I am going to move forward and tackle this again.
Good news is that since Sunday I have actually lost 11 pounds. I'm sure a lot of that was water retention. We just got back from Spring Break in the Wisconsin Dells. Drove two days to get there and two days to get home. At the end of the second day I could feel this swelling and tightness in the bottom of my legs from driving with my feet down under me, increased water and sodium intake, loads of bad eating including some delicious battered deep fried cheese curds. (It was Wisconsin!) Anyhow, I have made a promise to my body to cherish and take care of it. I have also committed to God to get back on the journey and trust Him to give me the strength. Thank You Lord I can't do this on my own...
