PSYCHED BY SUCCESS!
Wednesday, June 20, 2012
I know it is early days in my renewed effort to be healthy, but gads it feels good to be making real, measurable progress. I weighed this morning at 213 - 26 pounds down from my awful high number on January 1. Now 26 pounds in nearly six months doesn't sound like alot. But it took me until early June to really get my head together and get down and dirty SERIOUS about doing what I know I need to do - take care of ME and get healthy. It seems like I had to get past the one year anniversary of my brother's death before I could refocus and get on with it! So here I am - down from 225 on June 2 - 12 pounds this month so far and I AM PSYCHED!!!
I am smart enough to know that this is a pace that isn't likely to last, but for now it sure feels good. I wanted to blog today to make a record of this great feeling so that I can go back to it when I get stuck for a week or a month and make no progress at all. I know that IS part of the process as well.
So - I'm trying very, very hard to eat right every day, to exercise every day, to control portions and control snacking and be truly PRESENT in my relationship with food.
This is doable - I know that I can, should and deserve to weigh 145 pounds and that with hard work and lots of wonderful support that I can get there.
