My last status update occurred 98 days ago. Counting the days is weighing me down, not encouraging me. So, I am not going to do it any more. I am starting at the beginning. I just printed off the "Mind Over Body" series featured on SparkPeople. Instead of being devastated at my most recent descent from a healthy lifestyle, I have decided to print out these basic articles and get my head back to where I want it to be: healthy and alive. I will read these articles regularly. I cope with food, pure and simple. That IS NOT HEALTHY or necessary. I want to be free from this cage that I have so carefully constructed. I am the one who holds the key. I MUST let myself out. In order to do this I have set a goal of 17 months to lose the 75 pounds I would like to lose---that's 1 pound a week. I am looking at the "basics" through the articles I printed each day. It's going to be tough to get back into exercise but I can do it. Surely, through all of these trials of error I have learned some things. I will use those good thoughts to propel me forward.
