Keeping promises I make to myself!!!
I am tired of breaking promises that I make to myself. Over 5 years ago I lost 50 pounds. I went from 212.5 (219 was my highest)- to my lowest of 156.5 (but averaged 162). I believe I am somewhere around 185 right now. Ouch, just realizing that I have gained back 25-30 pounds. I knew that, I guess I just didn't want to admit it. I could sit here and berate myself for falling back into old habits or I could give myself a round of applause for the things I have kept doing well. I have a ...
I am tired of breaking promises that I make to myself. Over 5 years ago I lost 50 pounds. I went from 212.5 (219 was my highest)- to my lowest of 156.5 (but averaged 162).

I could sit here and berate myself for falling back into old habits or I could give myself a round of applause for the things I have kept doing well. I have a tendency to berate. But that is part of my new goals - to appreciate me - AS IS!!! So, what is it I want to appreciate about myself?
* I have a positive outlook about the changes I will be making.
* I have continued to be active - running (my running) events - 5k, 4 milers, 5 milers and doing more miles on my own. I have even registered for 6 events for 2015 - my first being on New Years Day. And on July 25 at 15k obstacle course. I am slower, but I still do it.
* I still drink water and avoid soda.
* I keep restarting - which means I never give up.
I am in this for the long haul and this time I am making promises that I will keep. If I keep them to others, than why not me.

I am 48 yo wife and mother. My husband John and I have been married for 27 years. He is my rock and my biggest fan. We have 2 boys (nearly 27 and 23). I am focusing on improving ME so that I can be a better wife, mother, sister and friend.
I am a Sign Language Inerpreter and love my job and the people I work with. I love to read non-fiction books on hauntings, among other genres. I love being active with my husband - I wish we did more of it. I love dragonflies! Did you know that dragonflies will let you pet them? It's an amazing experience. It's a feeling of connecting with nature.
If anything is of no coincidence, but of destiny I read in your life, the selection of your choice of the Dragonfly. It is of this creature that one should know brings the light of transformation. Dragonfly is the essence of the winds of change, the messages of wisdom and enlightenment, and the communication from the elemental world, to seek out the parts of your habits which need changing; to guide you through the mists of illusion to the pathway of transformation into your life.
