Keep On Going! :)

I have Ataxic Cerebral Palsy, and it mainly just affects my balance. I need assistance walking. I mainly hold on to my husband's arm (he loves it). I just started to use my walker around the house again (SO glad I finally did that) and am doing really well so far. I am bound and determined to get back to not needing any assistance at all. I've done it before, and I know I can do it again. I have a few mental blocks that I'm working on and I'll be walking in no time.

I have Ataxic Cerebral Palsy, and it mainly just affects my balance. I need assistance walking. I mainly hold on to my husband's arm (he loves it). I just started to use my walker around the house again (SO glad I finally did that) and am doing really well so far. I am bound and determined to get back to not needing any assistance at all. I've done it before, and I know I can do it again. I have a few mental blocks that I'm working on and I'll be walking in no time.

Since joining Spark People in March 2007 I've accomplished a lot. I reached my goal weight 11 months after starting my weight loss journey (started February 13, 2007), I'm regaining some confidence and am able to walk easier.

The old saying is true. "Use it or lose it". For me, I didn't use it, so I lost it. I took "shortcuts" to get around. Instead of walking I rolled around the house in my computer chair. I became lazy and frustrated. Nine or ten years of doing that really took its toll on my ability to walk alone.

I know it won't happen over night, but I do intend on being able to walk without assistance again some day. My main obstacle is my confidence (making REALLY great progress here!) and my fear of falling. I realize I'll have bad days, I will fall and I will want to quit, but I will keep on going. Small steps is what it takes.

So, when you're having a bad day, just keep on going. That's my mantra. Keep on going.

TerrI OMG! Do you know I've been looking for you for years? I'm pretty ticked at what Fit Bit did. We have a ton load to catch up on. Are you on Facebook? I still have contact with Robin, Kia, and a few others from the group, they wanted to start it up again, I told them no thanks. I gained a lot of weight, lost 43 pounds. Lost abilities. I'll go down fighting LOL!
