I am sad a bit.
Tuesday, August 21, 2012
I woke up this morning feeling a bit down. My fitness and diet is going great. Just feeling sad about losing touch with my immediate family 600 miles away. I have 3 brothers and they are married with kids. I heard a child cry in the mall as I was shopping today and it brought me back to when one of my nephews was a toddler. I just miss them. I moved to a place that I really love 7 years ago and things have been rough jobwise. Meeting good people has been up and down. But I'm coming out on the other side of the rough stuff and for some reason, today, I'm thinking of people back where I grew up and yearning for their company. You know, the ones that have known you forever.
I believe it might be just part of my lifestyle change. Feelings that I have been stuffing down with food are coming out. I know this is a good thing and I'm determined to listen to myself. Accepting "what is" has been a big part of being able to be here again and listen to what my body really needs. So, I will ride it out, come here for support every day, and get motivation from all of you. Hopefully, I will someday be someone's motivation here as well!
