A Fresh NEW Start! 21 March 2011

Monday, March 21, 2011

I know, I know, I have said this before. But I feel a spring in my step! Winter is over!!!! This was a rough winter for me. I just never felt like doing much of anything or being good to myself or anything. But last week I started walking again with a good friend. We have been going early and last week was a bit cool still in the mornings, and I think it even was raining one day. But we went to Walmart to walk! Controlled atmosphere, very well lit and well you have a lot of space to cover. We walked the parameter and then weaved in and out of all the isles. I worked up a sweat. But today, oh it was a beautiful morning so we check to see if anyone was at the track, there were some cars so we walked it this morning. It felt so good to be outside! Oh outside how I have missed you....

Well with the exercise, it brought me to start back up with tracking my food, and reset new goals. So I did a do over! We are allowed to do that every once in a while. Even though it reset my weight to what I am at now. I know where I was. And where I don't want to be anymore! I'm down still 45 pounds. I may be up a bit from my lowest. Which was 299, but I am still very close to that. And hopefully by the end of the week, be below 300 again.

Anyway I'm excited to be back! Oh and the best part!! I have finished my job! I have been free from work for a month now! What freedom! I had an awakening this past week, and with out going into much detail.... I just want to say that I can honestly say I love my life. And that I am so glad that I have made the choices I have made in the past and present. This is a big step for me. For me to finally realize that my life is pretty good, is huge! No my life isn't a life of bon bons, and million dollar homes and fancy clothes and cars. But my life has been really good to me. And I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to wake up and see all the good I do have! Heavenly Father blessed me with a wonderful life, a wonderful husband, wonderful parents and brothers, and wonderful step children. How could I have missed it for so long? But I am glad I have it now! :-)

Till tomorrow,

    Welcome Back Stacy, I am recently back myself. And was very inspired with your blog. I see that you are ready to do this and succeed. The main thing to remember is to keep positive!!! I know it is hard sometimes but try to remember the wonderful way you feel as you lose the weight. I know we both have a lot of weight to lose and I also know that we will do it. All we need to do is keep coming to sparks an keeping track of the food we eat and try to incorporate some exercise into each day. I have a bad back and it is acting up this past week but i am making myself get up and move at least every 30 minutes.I is at least better than sitting all day. It is really hard somedays like today but I know it is helping. If you want we can be buddies and route each other on. I would love to try to help in your journey and I know helping you will help me also. God Bless!!! emoticon Katie
