Love the side effects of SP

Wednesday, July 18, 2007

Well, for 2 days I have done 0 exercise. The fact is, with everything going on with my daughter and having to talk to the local girl scout council about her camping incident and getting lost, It has just been emotionally and physically exhausting.

I know that doesn't match the title, but the rest of this blog does. This morning I woke up and looked in the mirror. I was dressing in the bathroom where there is a wall length, large mirror because I didn't want to wake my hubby. As I glanced up, wearing just underclothes, I was amazed. I didn't look bad! I mean, nothing was hanging out over anything. It was amazing. I just stared for a minute almost in disbelief. Two things hit me, 1) two hard days really don't mess anything up and 2) this is really a forever thing. If I never lost another pound, (which I don't plan on letting happen), I am healthier, happier and down from a 22w to a regular 18.

If anyone who reads this feels there life is out of control, I just want to tell you to really work at getting control here. The last two days my "LIFE" was out of my control, but the beauty is "I" wasn't! I still ate right, and although I really didn't have the strength to exercise, I didn't lose control. I just chose to let myself rest. There is a huge difference! And I have to tell you that looking at yourself and seeing the loss, knowing that you have control over YOURSELF, your choices, your body, really helps those lows that come when that's ALL you can control. Don't give your control away!

Thank you SP team and all the wonderful people I have met here! God bless you all !

    That's such a wonderful post!!! I love your enthusiam and I feel the exact same way. So many times we let ourselves become victims of our circumstances but you are so right...WE HAVE CHOICES! just in the last week I have really started making better choices and truly am starting to realize that I don't have to be subject to my cravings. I have options!

    What a great job on your weightloss!

    Keep up the great work and God Bless!!!
