Don't count me out yet...
Tuesday, July 17, 2012
I joined SparkPeople in February 2012. In about 5 months, I've been really excited, fizzled out, made lots of friends, and check in here a lot more than I blog.
I've been slowly working toward my goal and am not giving up or moving backward.
I've lost a total of 20 pounds (which is slow, but makes a difference) but have a long way to go. It has to be slow for me, otherwise, I'll never keep the changes.
Today, I found a trail near my home and walked. It was so lovely, I love the smells, the sounds, and the beauty of nature. Next time, I'll go earlier in the morning, instead of 10am because it gets hot.
I am recovering from an illness, but have found a job and they are waiting for me to get my license (or whenever I'm ready to start).
Life is delicious, and I'm learning how to be well by taking care of myself, coping with stress in a more healthy way, and taking things one step at a time.
Thanks for everyone who hangs in and supports me, even though I'm not as regular and as QUICK as some others who really motivate. Stick with me: I'll show you that slow and steady can win the race.
