I Am Still Battling On.....

UPDATE 2019
I know it doesn't seem that I am even trying but I am.
I am my own worst enemy and I do so much damage to myself by just doing NOTHING for myself. There are times that I sit in the house and watch TV, and more TV, and never give myself an ounce of exercise, but in the background I am holding my own.....
No up, down, or in between, but no gaining as well......

So here is to my continuing to push forward and to you as well!

WE'VE GOT THIS!


THIS IS NOT A RACE
IT'S A BATTLE FOR HEALTH & HAPPINESS!

I am 58, have been married to my best friend for 41 years, have grown children, grandchildren, and even an ever growing number of great grandchildren..... I am blessed!

I have struggled for so long......
I joined SP back in 2010 at my highest known weight of 345 and watched day by day as others lost weight, seemingly so very easily, and cried on my dry toast wandering why I couldn't budge an inch. I am still a plan in progress but I am still walking through life one day at a time.......

I started to journal all my food and fluid consumptions and weighted every morning in order to learn what foods, portion sizes, and exercise would benefit my weight loss, pain management, and over all healthy feeling moments. That way I built my own meal plans and amounts daily to best benefit my weight loss.....
I also learn how much movement I needed to benefit my over all feeling of pain management and that (feel good) place in my life.

I have been able to set up an eating regimen by studying what my own body needs and wants in order to drop that pound on the scales. I know others told me to not step on the scales but once a week or even once a month but doing it this way I know exactly what each food type will do to my own body and where I need to tweak the food menu plan or how much more I need to move.

I now know how sensitive my body is to fluids, salt, sugars, carbs, and healthy produce. Its a living statement to myself. I had to start studying my body just like others would study for a test in school.....

I have suffered from moments of set-backs. To many to really be mentioned here but I have blogged about them. I lost 54 pounds over a 2 year time span and regained it all but 10 pounds during a domino effect of stress related episodes that I allowed to derail me from my healthy plan, I lost my mom, moved back into the house with 7 other people, had my husband put on the double lung transplant list, had to move because of unhealthy lung conditions at the same house, and a multitude of health and stress triggers that still push in from all sides.

I do know this, the key is never, ever, ever, give up. When you trip, and you WILL, get back up, pity yourself for a small period of time, blow your nose, wash your face, and get back on your feet to fight another day.....

You CAN do this!
I can do this!

Forgive yourself.......
Everyone has a combination of diet and (OR) exercise that will work for them and their body. Don't give up until you have found YOUR combination......

And remember above all else,
God Is great my friends!

    But you, dear friends, must build each other up in your most holy faith, pray in the power of the Holy Spirit, and await the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ, who will bring you eternal life. In this way, you will keep yourselves safe in God’s love.
    Jude 20-21 (NLT)

    Have a blessed weekend.
