We are so close to the end of 2015. Time waits for no one. emoticon

I didn't reach any of my weight goals this year, but I did achieve some personal and mental goals this year.

This year has made me realize.....

How I was allowing others to disturb my peace of mind.

How I was worried what others thought of me. (Like I can control that!)

How much I spoke negatively about myself in front of my daughters. (Not good at all!) I had to fix this with my girls because I didn't want them to think poorly of themselves. They already have to battle society at their age.

What an important person I some.....I am imperfect, but wonderfully made by God!

To never keep pushing forward, even when it hurts really badly. (emotionally or physically)

That my body is physically able to do things despite my weight....thank you Crossfit! I have worked out to the point of tears and nausea and still choose to go back in order to reach my goals. emoticon

I am starting a 30 day challenge with regards to what I am eating. Since I have Hashimoto's (Hypothyroditis), I am going to try and eat AIP (Auto Immune Paleo) to see if it will decrease some of my symptoms...the biggest one being fatigue. It doesn't look like it will be easy at first. Yes.... I am not waiting until after the holidays, because I feel so bad lately. The only 3 meals that I will not follow this program is Christmas eve dinner, Christmas day brunch, and New Year's Eve finger food. emoticon

I will update and let you all know how the 30 days went. Hopefully my health will improve, but I know that this Hashimoto's is incurable. But it's going to be okay. My God says so! emoticon

I hope and pray that you all truly have a blessed Christmas and a wonderful and safe New Year! May 2016 bring you health, happiness, and a new beginning.

God bless you all!

    You learned some very valuable things and sometimes, those things do learn to weight loss. I have Hypothyroidism and am looking forward to your report on the 30 day challenge. It's tough when you have to eat a particular way for medical issues. Dieting/food changes are one thing with a regular body and tough enough but then all of the stuff that has to be changed or eliminated just to function well and not be exhausted is another story!

    I am so glad you realized you were talking negatively about yourself in front of your daughters. Kids/teens really pay attention and notice so that will definitely be a positive change for both you and them.

    Have a blessed Christmas! :)

    That is a very important realization. Never be negative about yourself. May be hard but should not care too much what others think of us, if they want to be negative that is their problem, not yours. You have the right as we all do to be happy. So I am glad to see you here. Be positive about yourself and it will be a wonderful example to your girls. Never ever give up. emoticon
    Good luck with your challenge. I will be looking for your updates.
    Wishing you a very blessed Christmas and New Year. Many emoticon
