Starting over ONCE again

Thursday, November 09, 2017

Well here I go again, is what some might say. emoticon
I am saying YES, here I go again because I am worth it I know I can do it, I've done it before so what kept holding me back? I am the type of person that I always put others first. Ok, that's not a bad quality but you can allow it to do damage to yourself. There comes a time when you have to put yourself first. I always felt like I was being selfish if I did. Well the closer I get to the Lord, I see that I have to take care of me or I can't help others. I know this & figured this out a while back so why didn't I stick to it?

I met a lady, right here in my hometown that has some of the same issues I have. She has been to the dr. been put on one medication after another & she was still pretty much were I was. So from one extreme to the other (NO Doctors for me) & (every Doctor she could see) for her, why are we not getting the help we need? She introduced me to a natural supplement & since I started taking it for the first time in my life I feel like a totally different person. I have become the person I always felt I was inside. My sister & many others have told me that I have adult ADHD, well I guess they were right. I use to kid around & say well I've dealt with it this long, I'll be fine. (knowing something was really wrong) Since starting this, I can actually focus & get things accomplished. I'm finally finishing everything I put my hands on! So now it's time to finish MY weight loss journey. emoticon
I NO longer have a love hate relationship with the emoticon I really tell myself it doesn't matter what it says. I know I'm doing great & I don't need proof from the scale. I have lost pounds but more important I have lost inches emoticon Yes ALL that is very nice but I have lost depression, I have lost the feeling like I just don't matter. I am fixing myself from the inside out!! I always thought if I lost the weight & got healthy I would be happy. Boy was I wrong. I am writing this because I looked back at my journey here on spark. Yes I was happier, yes I was losing weight but now I look back at the pictures & I can still see the sadness. I am fixing my blood chemistry, which is leveling off everything from the inside. I was the girl that got "fat" from NOT eating. I never got enough calories & when I ate, I always went after the wrong stuff. Now I'm the girl that craves water, healthy food & yes I still treat myself but it's truly a treat not a everyday indulge. I was eating and not enjoying it. I was eating because I knew I had to eat something. Now I eat because I want to fuel my body to be able to function & do the things I need to do.
I have finally learned to say NO, & guess what the WORLD didn't end! emoticon Yes I've made a few mad, upset a few but I can not let that bother me. I have always took things very personal, well I can not live MY LIFE effectively by worrying about others. We are all grown, we all have the same amount of hours in our day & if I don't have time to take care of myself & my house, then everything else will have to wait. Don't get me wrong, I'm still very active in the church, my community, my daughters school & in both of my home businesses but I'm FINALLY putting everything in the correct order as God intended.

    Thank you for your comment on my blog. I take a plant based supplement. It is Truvision. I have been taking the combo which is trufix (helps balance your blood chemistry) & trucontrol (gives you energy & curves your cravings). I started taking it Oct. 3rd & I have felt better & my mind has been clearer than it has been in forever! I have lost around 15 inches & went from 248 pounds to 230.2 as of this morning. I was wearing a tight xL but mostly 2x shirts & I have on a large today. I still wear my xL but I just wanted to see if I could wear it because my others are getting loose. 😃

    I have a website if you would like to check it out.

    They do sell it on amazon & eBay but you have to be careful because with it being plant based it can spoil like food if it is NOT handled properly. If you decide to try it or you know anyone who is interested, I will be happy to answer any questions.
    Again thanks for taking time to check out my blog!
