week 6

Tuesday, July 21, 2015

So I had good news on the scale yesterday. Down to 229.6! getting closer and closer to my lowest weight-in since I joined Spark in April 2011 (225.8). Should be able to reach that goal in the next month. Then my next goal will be to be in the 210's

As for my blog yesterday. I didn't want to give the impression that I put the needs of others before my own. It is only that when I do grieve, I will need my husband to support me. He is, at this time, unable to do that. So I'd rather make him better before I fall myself. Hopefully I will be able to hold it till then. If not, we will have a very sad house....

Now I takke the time to congratulate myself for all the good work I have done! Not only did I managed to go back to school, but I managed to have good grades so far. And I have been able to bring my weight steadily down for the last 6 weeks!

    You are doing so great with this weight loss program you have implemented and I am happy for you! In fact, I look forward to these blogs postings and am inspired by them.
    But let me give an example here of what I mean when I say I am 'inspired'. What really got me "inspired" and thinking that I, too, wanted to change my bad habits was when you spoke about not wanting to be a slave anymore to food and, basically, wanting to free yourself of the hold it had on you. Well, that clicked in my head - like really clicked in my head .... that it was exactly how it felt most days - like slavery. And believe me, I have been a willing slave to many vices for some time now and not just bad food choices. Goodness, too many things holding me in bondage to mention. But, again, I have been a willing slave. Anyway, because of you (THANK YOU!!!) and a few other buds here at SP, I am FINALLY taking positive steps in freeing myself, too, and hope to post some positive results in the coming days.

    I understand your decision to try to put your grief on hold until your husband is in a better place. I'm sure it isn't easy but you know what is best for both of you and how important timing is ... even when it comes to expressing fully our grief.

    Sending you warm thoughts and big congratulations on the weight loss and also the "good grades!" emoticon

    Love Ya!
