Looking in the Mirror

Monday, October 20, 2014

I looked in the mirror yesterday and I saw the old me, very over weight. I asked myself, "How did you get back here?" As I walked back to my seat and finished my high calorie meal. I thought about the meals that I ate within just a week and there is no wonder how I got back here. simply put, I lost my way. After losing my job I went back to many of my old habits and every day is met with the thought that tomorrow I am going to start doing right. Yes I walk everyday but that is a necessity, I have no car.

The truth, not only is my weight spiraling out of control, the rest of my life is too. My weight like the sniffles of a common cold, is just a symptom of an out of control life. Rather than feel the disappointment of life, I eat 4 slices of pizza or have a entire bag of ginger snap cookies. My house is a wreck, my career is stalled and my weight is out of control. It's not that I don't like the person in the mirror. She is a warm, generous, caring person. But she dropped the ball on everything she worked hard for.

I sat in that restaurant yesterday thinking "this has to change."

Well my friends, tomorrow is here. Now what? I don't have the answers just yet, But I know where to start, setting (SMART) goals. I will give them serious thought and write them down.

Thank you for reading my blog. Feel free to leave advice or well wishes. Glad to have spark to turn to.

    Missy, I am so sorry to hear you are going through this stressful time. Stress can do a lot to our bodies and mind. Maybe just start out with some small goals. Instead of going for comfort foods, drink water with lemon or if you have a DVD player, do a quick 10 minute Cardio. Exercise can make you feel good. I am happy to hear you are still walking. Getting outside and being with Nature can sometimes be relaxing.

    You can do this!

    Missy: All I can say is stress causes us to have all kinds of reactions that are not necessarily healthy for us. During stressful times, so often food = comfort.

    I am proud of you that you're going to get yourself back on track. You're worth it!
