Look how far I have come,but how far will I go

Friday, April 21, 2017

I been back on sparkpeople for about 25 days, and looking at the distance I have come , well I think it is amazing. When I first came back I realized that the first try at this was for all the wrong reasons........ When my mother was ill and dying , with tear filled eyes she said promise me you will do something with your weight. I have struggled most of my life with mine. I would see people looking, I would hear what they were saying , and it would hurt. I don't want you to go through what I have. Please promise me. I made that promise and started my journey, my journey for my mom. Wrong, wrong. I needed to do it for me and if I had done it for me I would kept my promise. Now looking back I can see where I went wrong, I am stronger ,and wiser. this is not about other people , it is about me. I learn not to reply or let the scale take over , for weight is not the only issue , my A1C, my BP are on top. Last time these improved allot and I lost some weight my doctor was happy but not me . It wasn't enough and to slow coming off. I got discouraged and little by little I quit. Yes I was a quitter. This time I am doing it right. There is days I may go over my calories ,or under , not get all my water in , or walking in, but I am not quitting, because tomorrow I can try again to hit my goals. I made better goals this time . I feel confident I can reach them. What should I do if I don't, well I want quit I will push ,push until I do. Right now my sugars are almost stable, BP a little high this morning but now after my walk it is good. I have come a long way in 25 days, joined some challenges , I read lot on here, I have lost seven pounds ,but most important I love me, I love what I am doing, and everyone here. How far can I go. I can go all the way to the finish line and beyond. Yes I am that confident

    Hoping you meet every goal on schedule. I faltered in the beginning too but found my reason and the determination threatens to fill me up and spill over. We can do this for our futures, families, and lives.
