September 30, 2010

Today is September 30 and I am 131 day into my SP Journey. Since my last journal entry, I have been on vacation and started a new semester in a new field of study. In a word I am BUSY. I have not had time to track my progress but I am happy to say that in spite of the major deficit in personal time, I am still faithfully adhering to my new lifestyle. I still walk almost everyday. I still eat mainly whole foods and I still maintain a drastically reduced refined sugar intake. In the time since my last report I have dropped an additional 9 pounds, that is half the weight in 133% more time. In other words, it took me and additional 19 days (56+13 = 75) (75+56 = 131), to lose half the weight. In the past this drastic slow down would have totally derailed me. However, now with my new frame of reference, I look at the big picture. I look better, I feel better, I eat better, I sleep better, I am way less stressed and I feel better about myself than I have in years. Weighing less is so far down on my list of priorities right now that I rarely get on the scale. Fitting into clothes that I have not worn in 12 years is a much better yardstick. Looking forward to the next 60 or 75 days.

Today is July 17, 2010 and I am 56 days into my SP Journey. Although I have falter sometimes I have striven to take this journey one day at a time. In this journey I have gained and loss as much as 3 lbs in a 24 hour period but at the end of this phase of my journey, I have lost 18 lbs. In addition, I now walk more miles per week than I drive, I am fitting into clothes that I have not worn in years and on average I feel better than I have felt in 11 years and to think I am still in the beginning stages of this new life journey that I have embarked on. All I can say is I cannot wait to see what the next 60 days bring.

    Hi! Thank you so much for commenting my blog...it was hard to read those words but something definitely "clicked" with me. I am really hard on myself and I give myself impossible standards, which is why I always feel like I'm failing at life. This is the first time that I've really wanted to change how I see and feel about myself and it's going to take a lot of work. I want to be happy and feel worthy and live a real life. Thank you for your support!!!! I want to feel how you feel and I admire your attitude! Also, thank you forsaying that about my writing, I love to write and have for a long time, I have dozens of journals and I love to write poetry and songs.
    Congrats on all the success you've had so far and I wish you luck for the future! :D
