Thanks for the goodie! I think sometimes we simply have to go thru this and that to become more compassionate, understanding and reach our full growth. I know when I was thin, in spite of eating everything and anything I wanted to eat, I had a smug attitude about those who were overweight. That attitude quickly changed, of course, as my weight spiraled out of control and I've found it extremely difficult to take it off in spite of good nutrition, fitness activity and much frustration. Now I feel a lot more accepting of others, myself AND my body - I actually LIKE myself again, including my body, even though I'm not perfect - well, duh, who is?? Once I really 'got' that and realized that yep, it applies to me, too, life got a lot easier. I'm still not at my goal weight but I now focus on living a more healthy lifestyle, whether it shows on the scale or not, and I want to take care of myself for long life, mobility even when I'm older and as little pain as possible - but it really took LIVING as an overweight person to reach that level of acceptance and happiness, something I doubt I would have ever achieved otherwise! So I'm glad you are coming to the same type of conclusion - and wish you the best on your journey!
Hi: What's up? Been on SP for four months now. No weight loss. Could make me depressed (and it did for awhile) but I'm not giving up on myself in getting healthier. I didn't learn all these habits in a few months...changing myself/bad habits will take some time...still enjoying SP to vent and connect. Hope all is well with you and yours. 2261 days ago
Pam...I'm missing you and think of you from time to time. I am working on getting my "spark" back after all the changes and challenges experienced in my world over the last 2-3 months. Let's do this together!
So hear it is...I'm sreeeeaaaammmmming for you! Are you there?
Hope so. Let me hear from you. I care and want to urge you on to reach for YOUR goals.
