FOOT WORK

Thursday, July 24, 2014

~ GoOoOoOOoOoOood Thursday Morning, EVERYONE!!!!.....Finally not so lethargic.....I have been under the weather all week; however, I am more than grateful it is very temporary.....I have nothing to complain about because my life on a daily basis is more than good and I am very blessed to have exactly what I do.....As of late, I have been staying in the positive no matter what and focusing on a stronger relationship with my higher power and the footwork I must do to continue growing.....I am participating in my presence, in my own life.....I am no longer willing to engage in insanity/chaos with others.....IF IT IS NOT MY OWN CIRCUS I AIN'T GONNA PLAY WITH DEM DRAINING MONKEYS!!!!......I always have time for those closest to me and for people who really want to help themselves; however, I make no apologies for not volunteering to interact with toxic, dysfunctional, beyond dramatic situations/people!!!!....It's about living the steps and walking the walk of recovery on a daily basis!!!! ~ KSS ~ Thanks for letting me share!!! ~

    I also avoid toxic people - they can suck the life right out of you.

    Amen to that. I walked through that for almost 15 years with a toxic sister-in-law. When she was no longer in the picture - it was amazing the difference. You make a choice on how you live. Choosing to live with encouraging supportive people who just want to make you be a better person - is a great place to be!!

Keep up the great work! emoticon

A NEW ADVENTURE WITH OMNI

Friday, May 16, 2014

On this journey of mine, I am discovering all kinds of things. New emotions, new opportunities, new desires. I am learning to see myself & to identify the things that lift me up, and letting go of the things that hold me down. I am becoming brave enough to confront my demons, and make friends with them. As amazing as all this can be, becoming a better me is tiring. So today, I am focusing on self care & resting. And today I see that taking time to be sweet to my own self is not avoidance or depression.

Omni rocks!!!

Monday, April 28, 2014

I am also a survivor of sexual abuse. I overate to not feel the pain. I went to a counselor a for many years and I told her. I could no longer keep it a secret After I told her, the thoughts never consumed me again. Please find a counselor that specializes on this topic. The 12 steps and a sponsor will help you also. Come to find out I have other reasons I overate also! I was addicted to food that is why I am here. Now I feel my feelings instead of eating.I love you and hugs! I go to weight watchers now .I am a omnitrition coach,I exersize too.If I can change you can too!!!!!

    That is awesome you found a wonderful counselor you were able to open up to, and its wonderful you were able to heal from the wound of abuse. Being self aware of what cause your overeating is a hurdle that has enabled you to deal with it!

    Healing can be such a hard process, but definitely worth it.
Growing and taking steps in the right direction every single day can make a big difference.

    We all have some kind demons within. One thing I have found since being on SparkPeople, is that none of us is alone. We each help ourselves and others face the demons and get over, through and past them. emoticon

ONE STEP AHEAD

Tuesday, April 08, 2014

I know it isn't about weight. This is embarrassing but also an accomplishment. I wasn't going to share, but I thought I should. In 2007, I stopped overeating and started my recovery. In 2010, I stopped cutting myself. 7 year recovery with overeating and 4 for cutting. In 2011-2012, I weighed 435 pounds. I could barely walk upstairs and refused to take my medications. I was diagnosed as a diabetic and other problems. I started doing one thing at a time. Taking one step at a time. One day at a time. Now it is 2014, I am now 295 pounds. I have lost 150 pounds plus in about 2 and a half years with sickness and exercise since I started my weight loss journey. One day at a time

    Thank you for sharing. You should be proud of your accomplishments. I can easily see the connection. Our lives were painful and we reached for a way to feel comfort if only for a moment. The comfort was short and followed by shame, remorse, regret, anger and self recrimination that left us feeling worse. No wonder we felt badly much of the time.
Your walk to recovery has had enormous challenges. Congratulations! Losing 150+ pounds is awesome. I'm sure you never thought it would be possible. One day at a time is all we have. The past is passed and the future isn't close enough.
Make today the best day of your journey.
