Hello All!

Happy Holidays even though I know they have passed. I spend a good deal of the holidays on a much needed vacation. At first I felt guilty that I had not reached the weight I had envisioned at the beginning of the year. I felt like I didn't deserve to reward myself because not only did I not lose weight but I had gained 15 lbs. Eventually I came to make my peace with this journey and enjoy my vacation. I did not punish myself with food as I have learned that food should neither be treated as a reward or punishment. I just ate foods that I enjoyed with the knowledge that I would return to my woe when I returned. I did workout while on vacation, so I am proud of that. Still that did not keep the additional 12 lbs I gained from attaching to my body. I am happy to say that I have lost 10 of those pounds since being home. I'm back to the low carb woe because I feel it is the best thing for me. Soon I will be adding in routine exercise again when I feel better and have more energy (cold). This year my goal is celebrate me no matter what because only I know the effort I put into creating a healthier, happier version of me. Still am down a total of 76 lb and that is something to be proud of. The year of 2017 was a maintenance year, hoping to add to that number in 2018!

    You look so beautiful in this picture. You are GLOWING. Every step on this journey transforms us in some way. It's not always weight but I guarantee you are a better version of yourself. A version that never would have emerged had you not even tried. Happy 2018!

    76 pounds down is awesome! I love your new attitude. Celebrate who you are no matter what! I've been struggling as well, but back on track the last week and a half. I started the Beck book that I've seen others following - focuses on changing the mind versus a specific diet. So far so good.
