Reminder what success looks like for me.

Thursday, July 23, 2015

I started another blog on blogspot. But decided to post it here too.

Lots of things are changing in my life. I am the mom of 6 kids, only 3 still live at home. I was a stay at home mom. I have been back to work for a couple of years. I may work more full time this fall. I am not sure yet. My third son will leave at the end of this year. I am a grandma. Lots of things look different. Even though my youngest is still in grade school many parts of my life look different than I am accustomed to. I have lots of freedom or at least the beginnings of it.

A bit over a year ago a long time friend died a very hard and long death from diabetes. It scared me but, apparently not enough to make sustained life changes. I am recommitting again.

I am trying to work hard to make life changes. So here is what success will look like.

I will have a fit and healthy body.
I will have energy.
I will like how I look and feel.
I will be physically able to complete the tasks I want to do.
My blood sugar will be well controlled, as defined by my doctor.
I will have clothes I like not just what will fit.
I will feel confident in myself.
I will know I have done it.
I will feel good about the number on the scale.
I will be physically, mentally, spiritually and emotionally strong.
I have not felt fit and healthy in a very long time. Because of out of control diabetes I have limitied energy. I don't like how I look and feel right now. I have gained too much weight back. I rest frequently and look tired most of the time. My blood sugar is not good so I am going to a specialist. I just wear what fits. There are other styles I would like to wear that don't look good on a plus size body. I doubt myself most of the time. I doubt that I can do this a good deal of the time. I don't like the number on the scale. I don't feel strong in many areas of my life.

So, since I try not to complain and whine without a plan my plan today is to just to work towards my plan. I need the small steps of success I can have today.

Time to make it a good one,

    Good plan. But try to find something that you like to wear. When you aren't feeling good about your clothes you just don't feel good about your life. I've been there. Even us plus-sizes need to look and feel nice.
