Adding supports and focus

Tuesday, January 09, 2018

I just uploaded a collage of me in San Francisco two years ago, celebrating a full year of hard work to recover from my second stroke! I was very fragile, and I was so very grateful for being alive, doing as well as I did at that time.

That's the way it goes. I have trauma and fight like the passionate tiger to regain as much of my functioning and appreciation and blessings in a constant prayer of affirming what is in my power to achieve. Soft acceptance of what imperfections still display, and another moment to choose once again.

I've been on Sparks for a decade and was on eDiets for several years prior. I've had great support and tools to regain myself more than once through challenges only made for the hardy. Yet now I find I must admit I regained all those pounds that took me such fortitude and patience to peel away. I am diving in from the get go once again.

I have just added attending OA to my NicA 12 step meetings schedule so I can be in a live room with others who are doing the next right things for themselves by thinking out loud how to shift beliefs. And I signed up for WW for a month as well, because one way or another that in person live goal commitment just might be necessary for me as well.

I walk about 4 miles most days. But I will add resistance bands. Or pushups. The point is to add constructive choices to my Sparking Commitment to take care of me.

My affirmation mantra is:

I love you all,
the Passionate Tiger

    I'm reinventing myself at the moment.... & want to break this recent cycle of 10 lbs regain/lose again/regain/lose again...it's worrisome that I let myself go like that and let yo-yoing become acceptable now in the lower numbers (I've kept 45 of 55 pounds off) I don't feel well after indulgence. I reset my spark account as a gift to reign myself in.

    Hey, PT! Go for it, girl! We just keep fighting, and that's the right thing to do!
    I'm heading out to help my Aged Parents. Dad broke his leg and so he must endure rehab for the hip replacement. That takes COURAGE! But we have that, right? RIGHT!!!
    So, stay strong, and just keep going....
