Today was a good day---Before and "during" pictures

Wednesday, August 29, 2012

I have been on this journey for quiet a long time---and every time I look in the mirror I say well I don't see changes. Today was not one of those days. Today I looked in the mirror and for the first time in quite a long time I liked what I saw. This journey has been up and down (more down than up) and very emotional for me. Wouldn't you know I am an emotional eater--so with the emotions came eating things that I shouldn't. I am sure by now you are asking "What changed"---well I fell in love with Turbo Jam workouts. That is the only thing that has changed. I still track my food on most days ---and drink my water and now I workout consistently 5 days a week. I have other workouts that I like (such as walk away the pounds) but they never seem to stick around after 2 weeks. I am on my second month of Turbo Jam and I look forward to doing it every single morning. I cannot explain how good it makes me feel to look in the mirror and actually "see" a difference for myself---and feel a difference within me. I am going to post some pictures with this blog because I think pictures speak louder than words. I hope this inspires some of you who have been on the same journey as me (long, up down, up down, round and round) to keep going--keep pushing--and keep trying to find that workout that you love. I believe that is what makes the difference when you are working towards a healthier lifestyle. Keep on Sparking!

    Lillean-

    Thank you first of all for your comment- and compliment. I think not seeing changes has to do with my past relationship. I was told for 8 years by my ex husband that I am fat and ugly--over and over and over--and well after a while you start to believe those types of things. I have since remarried but still carry around some emotional baggage from that relationship and the abuse that went along with it. I know I have changed---but when I look in the mirror I still see "fat and ugly"---not because I am--but because that is what was told to me for 8 years. I am in therapy and trying to fix that--I also found an amazing church that I do attend and growing closer to God helps me realize that he made me the way I am and I should love myself. :) Keep on sparking lady!

    Thank you again for your comment!

    ErinDavis-

    Trust me when I say you are definitely not alone! There are so many people on here who go through the same exact things that you do. I have to say Sparkpeople keeps me accountable (to myself and others) and without it I am not sure I would be even nearly as consistent. I have DEFINITELY struggled. I have not been a healthy weight since I was in the 8th grade (jeesh that is a long time ago)---but I am working on getting there now and that is what is important! Every day is a new day--if you mess up---just accept it and make better choices the next day! :)

    Thank you for your comment!

    I think that we see our flaws --well I do anyway--over our accomplishments! I need to rewire my thinking. Thank you for your comment! :)
