Isn't this what our lives are all about? More than just getting through each day we need to be EMBRACING each day.
This challenge is more than a weight loss goal for me. It is a commitment to making this my way of life.
For me, success comes at the end of the day when my body feels good. When I am not laying in bed depressed by how much I ate. The challenge is being good to myself no matter HOW I am feeling inside or WHAT I am going through.
My husband can always tell how I have taken care of myself by just looking at me. He can see the physical bloated tummy part but he he also sees how I am treating the kids. I get so MEAN when I have been overeating. I feel sorry for myself and I don't have any patience with the kids. Thank goodness they are so forgiving :)
I have been battling depression for many years. It comes and goes through out the month but it seems to stay more than not. I have been on medication but it doesn't seem to help. When I went off the last one I gained 5 lbs! (This REALLY helps when your already feeling over weight) I am determined to fight this and I know if I use faith and hope to push away my despair my struggles won't go away but I will find the strength to endure them well.
Life isn't easy for any of us. It seems like curve balls are constantly thrown our way. It is up to us to keep focused on our goals and not let anything take us off course. Sometimes our goals need to change; It's good to reevaluate and make our goals work for us but not completely throw them out the door.
Thanks for letting me join all of you on our journey to a HAPPY LIFE!
