Hardest Moment Turned Into My Biggest Success

This is a little "Woo Hoo" because I am so proud of myself. I had my first big setback last week. Before Sparkpeople, I would have given up and gone back to my pattern of emotional eating. But instead, I shook it off and got right back on track. I lost 1.8 pounds this week (my target is 1 pound per week) and I just realized not only did I break 140 but I am less than 10 pounds to my goal. I'm more than half way there!

This has been one of the best journeys of my life. In the last 3 months, the changes that were a challenge in the beginning have begun to be second nature. I love how my lifestyle makes me feel about myself. I love that I can do twice as many push ups as when I started and I can see the definition starting to happen all over my body. I love that I look forward to my workouts (most of the time!) Most of all, I love that I have learned to enjoy food in all it's wonderful glory and not use it to abuse myself. I haven't always had the most self esteem, and now I feel like Wonder Woman. I can do it!!!
