Just rambling......

Sunday, July 15, 2012

So, I've reached that stage where I lose and gain the same few pounds each week. Up one, down two; it's like a dance step without the music. There where times in my life when this alone would have frustrated me to the point of giving up. The thought pops in my head that I am smaller than I have ever been, why worry about it? The fact is I have learned in this last year is that the scale only represents numbers, not me.

I know I am healthier than I have EVER been. I can breath better, I can move better, I have energy and stamina that I never had before. I have learned to see my life through a new set of eyes. I see the future with possibilities of all the new things I would like to do.

And I know I don't always share my personal ups and downs online, but this last year has had some real roller coaster moments for me. Most of these were not related to my health changes, and at other points in my life would have derailed my progress. It has been the support and accountability I feel from coming here everyday that has been my comfort and push to keep going. I am so glad that I am here.

    It's amazing, isn't it, how much support we can get from our Spark Friends? I may never meet any of them, and yet I know that they are here for me, just as I am here for them. It's a real community, almost an extended family, and it's wonderful.

    You are doing aa so well, and you deserve to be very proud of yourself

    Take care,
    Gail emoticon emoticon emoticon
