It's been a while...

Sunday, July 07, 2013

I was writing a blog at least 2-3 times a week but haven't had a chance lately. I have been doing quite well with my eating and exercise. I have lost a total of 50 pounds as of a couple weeks ago. I haven't been on the scales since then though. I did measure myself a couple days ago though. I was very pleased to find that I have lost a half inch more from my waist as well as a half inch from my upper arm and from my neck. I know I am losing inches and I am curious about my weight. I may brave the scales tomorrow :) I also know I am feeling much better than I was a year ago. I have also realized that my sugar level has a lot to do with my exercise as well as the foods I eat. I get discouraged at times when I think how far I have left to go in this weight loss journey but then I stop and think about how far I have come, how great I feel already, and I remember that I am about a quarter of my way to my goal.

I know that this needs to be a lifestyle for me and not just a quick fix. It is amazing how many people want the easy, quick fix for their health and weight issues but I know that each person has to figure these facts out for themselves. They need to experience the ups and downs on their own without being told the facts. Many people don't like to be told the things that they can't do. This is all a part of life and some of the life lessons people have to experience. I had to experience it on my own and when people tried to tell me what I needed to do I felt even worse because I felt like they looked down on me or thought badly of me. I so wish that SP would have been around years ago and that I would have known about it. I feel like the best thing I can do is tell others about SP and how helpful and full of info the entire site is when someone expresses an interest in wanting to improve their health and lose weight. Blessing to all on this journey....
