Determined to Succeed!

Weight has always been a battle for me and Spark has been a helpful place to keep me focused on my health journey. It does help having others who truly understand how hard this really can be and I love my SP teams and friends!

I went on "Shape Reclaimed" through a Nutritionist in October, 2013 and lost 87 lb. by March, 2014. It quit happening so I went off program mid July, 2014 and am back to doing it the normal way to get the last 40 lb. off. I don't regret the huge jump ...

I went on "Shape Reclaimed" through a Nutritionist in October, 2013 and lost 87 lb. by March, 2014. It quit happening so I went off program mid July, 2014 and am back to doing it the normal way to get the last 40 lb. off. I don't regret the huge jump start I gave my health at all after years of doing the right thing and not having results because my adrenals, thyroid and pituitary weren't working properly.

I have to constantly work at reminding myself that I am worth it as self-esteem was trashed during childhood. I know I am, but the bad stuff is easier to believe sometimes.

In August 2014 I signed back up with the gym I had gone to prior (had to take most of a year off for the Shape program) and committed to time with a trainer 2x/week for six months. Making me a priority in this!

It was bad yesterday, same old stuff, lots of personal abuse. Probably prayers is the only reason it wasn't worse. Considering the source, makes me feel much better and puts it in a right perspective. I'm shaking it off as "worldly tribulations, but be of good cheer". I remember the buffalo, standing in blizzards, waiting for it to be over. "so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to still stand." Buffalo verse. Yes in one way I do wish I knew why God has me walking through this fire. But on the other hand, if I did know, would that change anything? I'd still agree to it and I'd still have to bear it. That also makes me feel better - b/c even if I knew WHY, it'd still be happening; therefore I don't need to know. I just need to get through it, and get to the other side, and remember wings of faith and words of life will make the journey to the other side easier. I have another "buffalo blizzard period" coming up this Sat & Sun, but today and tomorrow I am free. AND, Sun is my last Sunday there - one way or another.

I was wise about the yarn purchase in that I only picked yarns I already use and love so yes, it will get used. I just find it funny that although I know the company is using a tactic to get me to buy more, I fall for it anyway. They even price stuff so that 'one more item' has to be added to the purchase to get it to $60. Sigh...
