I can do this.

Monday, October 19, 2015

It has been a tough time in the Erin World lately. The death of my little dog really took a toll. I have to credit myself by recognizing that I did not get completely derailed. I did not gain weight (nor did I lose any). But maintaining the progress I have made is huge to me.

Being a life-long stress eater could have meant that emerging from the loss of my friend meant an extra 20 pounds. But it did not. I am feeling more ready to step up my game...to use the idea that life is worth living FULLY. And for me, that means continuing on the path I set myself on...continuing to honor and enhance my health and wellness.

I have been and will continue to be patient with myself. I can do this. We all can.

    Good for you for keeping a reign on things. It's tough when things like that, and/or other stresses, happen.

    It does take time. I just slept a lot after losing my buddy. So yes just be patient, good that you did not gain too, that is great. emoticon
    Get going a bit at a time and it will get better every day emoticon emoticon

    There is no deadline, there is no meter running. You are moving at your pace and overcoming life long habits. Be proud of maintaining!
