It's been awhile...three years or so since I have done any writing within my SP blog. I'm pushing myself to begin again, to believe and trust in momentum and connecting the dots.

My diabetes and overall health have gotten worse not better and my lack of clean healthy eating and exercise have brought to another bottom...but within all of this, I am bringing all of previous experience - success & failures to each day and starting over. One pound, one day at a time.

So yesterday I ate clean, healthy and worked out. Today has started out well, ate a little protein...did my workout which consists of walking intervals, sets of squats and side step intervals with dumbells. I'm just getting back to it...so it might not sound very heavy duty, but it's a huge improvement and folding in small, practical changes that keep me safe and successfully consistent is how I have achieved success in the past.

I'm going to be doing my very best to tune out the negative voices inside and outside of me and just keeping it moving slow and steady, working hard to build my strength, endurance and gain back more and more mobility.

I'm not giving up!

    I have been logging in daily since the beginning of July. I'm still not doing optimally, but I keep trying. I hope you are trying, too, and would love to see an update to know how you are.

    Hey Buddy, you are moving and exercising, who said you have to run a marathon or become aerobics queen????

    Slowly slowly. BTW you have done better than me. Today I went and splurged on sweets..... and still no exercise

    I am glad to know you. I just recently read the blog about your journey and it was amazing.

    I think that our worst enemy is our mind.

    I keep changing the way I think to help me loose. For example, I try to think, not on the amount of pounds I have to loose, but only about how I will feel when I loose the next pound. That is my only immediate reachable weight. Also, I like to think about the new good habits that I am getting. Going on PILOT with the new healthy changes help me to keep going.

    It's only 2 and a half years emoticon and it's never to late to pick yourself up, dust yourself off and try again. Or keep trying. I, too, have lost the path but I have kept up trying even when I am mostly not successful. For me that means I have held the line on my regaining of weight so that I am not back at square one. But I am far from where I had been. SOOOO glad to see you post again! Know that there are folks out here that support your journey (BTW, my ID changed from labrys04092 to labrys32726 because I moved to a different zip code). Keep coming back. That's what I'm doing. Let's move it forward together!
