Hope begins.....

Sunday, November 26, 2017

My first blog entry was on November 13, 2009. I have fallen further into the weightloss spiral puffing up to my highest weight so far.

Shortly after beginning SparkPeople, I got to my healthiest weight and state of being:
- I didn't lose any pounds or inches that I could tell. My clothes fit exactly the same.
I got disheartened by the lack of apparent success. I woke up at 430-5 am every day and went to the gym. I ate really well. I am not a selfie person and no one told me that I was succeeding in fact they picked on me and made me feel worse.

I started the long slip into the darkest moments of my life. I didn't realize until years later looking at a few pictures from that time period and noticing I bet any moment I would have started seeing the inches and numbers fall, because I looked so good.

Of course, 50 plus pounds and my muscles atrophying and fat taking over the surface and the deep, the pictures just depressed me.

Why couldn't I see it? Why did no one support me? Encourage me? Tell me?

2009-2017. The past few years I have been trying to claw myself out of the depression I sunk.

I spent the past four days in an emotional tailspin. This morning I was watching the movie, The Christmas Train based on the book by David Baldacci.

Something sweet about it touched me.
