Wow this one barely even takes any thought!! Just a recounting of how I fell on my face..did not stick to exercise, eating right or even giving a tinkers dern about myself ..till I came back to BLC.
Over the last BLC..there were issues, health issues, marital issues, family problems and just a raft of things that nearly pushed me over the edge. I was truly hanging on by my toe nails.
In other words I was not dealing well with life!
I gave up and gave in. I ate everything that passed my face and stuffed me with food seeking comfort that was not available anywhere else...or so I thought!
Did ya see any salads, lean meats, fish or anything healthy..of course not. I think I was literally eating myself to death. It was scary to be in a place like that. I got on the scale one day..OMG...OMG I was the largest I have ever been and the most miserable.
That day I once again turned to SP..and began the trip back.
Not that there are not bad days..or days when I trip and fall..but I do know from experience.
If I am here, if I participate in the challenges, if I read the posts and reply , if I am an active team member and and active participant in my life..things go much better!
I walk ...then I feel good....
I exercise..then I feel good...
I interact with others ...then I feel good..
When I realize I am not alone...then I feel good
Living rurally is wonderful at times..most times, but the moments when you have that need for people ..for there to be a living being you can communicate with ..at those times rural living kinda makes it difficult. Knowing that there is someone here on SP that I can check in with , share with and perhaps even help them in the same way that many have helped me..now that is something special indeed!
So ...it is a matter of participation in life to enjoy life...
In the same way , participation in the challenges , the LCW, the TNT all lead to achieving goals. If I don't move ...I don't achieve ..that is the absolute to be learned .
Exercise is more fun with friends...
And that is the truth for sure!
SP people, my team and my friends here make each day more enjoyable and boost me up daily..but only if I come here and participate in life!!
I am still working on it, daily.......................
