Appreciating the small victories
Wednesday, May 12, 2010
Today I am appreciating the small victory. 7 days ago, I vengefully attacked the fridge. I have maintained that victory. I reminded myself of that today as I completed mile 2 of my walk.
I thought back to last nights episode of TBL. While I have never been at Michael's weight, I can certainly relate to what he was feeling. In 2007 after having lost 100#s I felt it still wasn't enough. (It really wasn't) and because I felt this way I couldn't celebrate the fact that I lost the weight with only the help of SP and SP Buddies, and putting into play what I learned here. By not recognizing and appreciating what I had accomplished, I set myself back four years.
So today, I celebrate and appreciate the fact that last night while watching TBL I snacked on grapes and the ice cream I had was skinny cow! I did cry while watching the show, but only out of understanding and inspiration. Not sorrow.
I took the last 7 days one at a time. I am pleased with the outcome. 5lbs lost!
I may not have done everything exactly right but I am on the right track!
Today is Wed and I have walked 4 miles!!! HUGE SUCCESS!!! Plan on at least 2 more.. who knows ?? Maybe 8 more? LOL It could happen!
I feel like over the past few years (after the huge loss) that I've been buried or something. Its so hard to explain. Like maybe my head (inside) had been covered in cobwebs or something.
I really "feel" like I am "back"... lol I hope I am.
