Hump Day Inspiration

Wednesday, May 29, 2013

Losing and gaining weight has been a journey for me. I gained weight because emotionally I was not in a good place and I thought that there is no way I could ever gain 8O pounds. I am becoming more comfortable with myself as I lose weight. I have realized that you have to be comfortable and confident with yourself no matter what size. When I was 150 lbs, I would still look in the mirror and say I am overweight. I am now 70 lbs heavier than I was then, and I feel more confident than ever. I know who I am and what I am capatable of.

To start the journey of losing you must plan. If we fail to plan, then we plan to fail.

God Bless

    Stress is not what gets me, it is illness and medications. I gained nine pounds since I was ill and I'm really having a hard time getting back into eating in moderation and exercising consistently. I know its me, its just hard right now. I know that I can do it, because I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me!!

    When I was in my 20s and weighed about 120 I thought I was fat! What I wouldn't do to be there again. Thanks for reminding me that it's not what others see that matters - it's what we see.

    It was always most difficult to lose my weight while going through stressful times, I know... and that's usually been when I actually gained weight, too. But during those times when the sailing has been a little smoother, so were my weight-loss efforts. Now that the extra pounds are gone, even in the hard times, I find I'm able to approach my struggles without overeating - usually by talking with a loved one for support and/or comfort and guidance.

    Take heart, because it really does get easier... emoticon - Susan
