New Year, New Me
Saturday, January 04, 2014
2011 and 2012 were filled with some pretty low points for me and then 2013 was like a bridging year; taking me from hurt and pain to healed and free. During the emotional roller coaster of that time, my fitness and wellness took a back seat. I kept starting and stopping and trying to get it together. Also, the issues involved my spouse and I spent so much time finding my way back to forgiveness and repairing the breach that I went onto the back burner. I am also very active with my children's activities and women's ministry at my church so I found it difficult to carve out the time and space I needed to reach my weight-loss goal. It was so discouraging because prior to the incidents in 2011, I had lost 12 pounds using the tools on sparkpeople. To see that progress diminish and then gain the weight back has been heart-breaking for me. But my hope has not completely been lost. I know that I can turn things around with small and consistent steps through this process. I know this is a life-style change and something I must work on everyday for the rest of my life. I am embracing the new me this year and reclaiming my fitness time.
