I love my body

Wednesday, June 19, 2013

I really have come a long ways! I remember a time when I didn't love my body and as I took the spark quiz about whether or not I had a healthy image, I surprised myself how far I've come. Like I remember a time when my answer to one of the questions was about goal weight and I remember when my answer would be a specific what I was in high school. Then when I remember when I relaxed a little and said healthy BMI, and now I'm to the point that, "Hey...when I was just slightly overweight and Caley was a year old, I felt pretty good." To me...the weight no longer matters anymore. I just want to be healthy and no that I'm doing things to help my body.

I made my appointments for my shoulder and physical. I'm nervous because last time I went I was in a prediabetes stage, but found out that was 2 years ago. What the heck happened to last year's physical? I usually do these things like clock work so I have mixed emotions about that. On one hand, I'm nervous because I could have full blown diabetes now and not even know it. On the other hand, I exercised a lot last year, have made a lot of healthy changes since that physical so maybe I'm still in that phase or heading towards normal. I don't know. All I do know is I want to do the tests before I see her so I can have a real dialog with her. I just want to be healthy.

My shoulder appointment is next month and also nervous about that. I do not want surgery, but I got to bite the bullet and find out. I can't be paralyzed with fear. I need to always be walking boldly forward, but knowing that I reached an important goal, finally having a healthy image about myself where I accept the way I look, am being more aware of myself and my lifestyle and trying so hard is a nice perk!

    Thank you guys for all the wonderful support. You guys are the best and why I love SparkPeople. In good times and bad, happy and sad, you always come through for me and for those who are praying for me, I really appreciate it. I'm really hoping that I see some NSV's at this next appointment. It would be a huge motivator for me!

    If the shoulder is a constant pain, relief is desirable. Had two knee replacements and sad I waited so long to do it.

    You'll get there!

    You've done such a great job being proactive with your health instead of reactive - I'm sure you'll be pleasantly surprised with the changes that have taken place inside you!

    Loving yourself in the NOW and in your own skin is so important. I'm sure your physical will mirror the more positive image and lifestyle you have adopted.

    That's great progress! Having read your page, I think you'll do fine, not focusing so much on actual weight as in leanring to live healthily, and thus also teaching your daughter those same healthy habits so she won't face those issues.
    Blessings on the journey to a healthy lifestyle!
