Self care

Thursday, August 22, 2019

When I first started sparkpeople (WAY, WAY back....) emoticon I was so inspired by so many people. I got so caught up in coming on here, escaping REAL life. I did really well with my weight loss as well but that is where I went wrong. I "thought" I was finally doing this. I "thought" I had finally figured things out.....WELL life happened and down that spiral I went once again. emoticon When I finally hit the wall again was seeing my picture from my 25 wedding anniversary. I knew I had to do something. I had gained ALL my weight back PLUS 10 pounds.

Sparkpeople did help me realize I let others control the way I live. It also helped me realize that the way people treat me has a effect on my life but what I am FINALLY realizing is I am in COMPLETE CONTROL of the out come. I have always tried to love others but never really loved myself. FINALLY that is the change I am doing. If someone gets mad or upset with me, that's their problem, not mine to fix. When I take time for myself, I am NOT being selfish, I am doing some self care which is VERY important. When I say NO, I am not being mean, I either can not be there for personal reasons or its because I'm already doing something.
I have always been a multi-tasker but I was truly trying to do it ALL and that is just NOT possible.

Learning SELF LOVE!!
