Maintaining in life.

Saturday, November 16, 2019

I am still around, but I don't get on much. I am maintaining in my weight around 155 lbs. It seems like my body is happy here. I can have a piece of dark chocolate each day and the occasional splurge in the area of food and still feel ok about it and the scale.

I've learned that I'm ok with me. I'm ok with my body and with what I can do with it. I'm not as thin as I was in my competitive running days, but I'm content. I never thought I would be and maybe it's age or maybe I've finally found a balance. Either way I'm very happy with life.

I started a new job and I love it. I work with middle schoolers with behavioral issues. I am healthy and strong enough that I can do more push-ups then they can, I can move quickly when they are playing around and I may be older, but they know I'm not a pushover.

I hope all my Sparkfriends are finding contentment. It's a great place to be in life!

    That is awesome. That seems to be the weight my body likes as well. The goal is to be healthy and active and it sounds like you are exactly that! Have a great Sunday!

    I love this. I am same. My weight doesn't drop a pound as easily as it used to but it doesn't go up as quickly as it used to and I'm strong and healthy so I'll take it!

    That is so wonderful about your job! Continued health and happiness to you!

    That is the holy grail of maintenance . . . finding that balance. Being content! You've done it. Wonderful!

    Isn't it wonderful to feel fit and have energy.

    I can't even begin to say how happy that makes me. Finding our "happy place" is about so much more than a number on the scale, and it sounds like you've found yours! emoticon

    Sweet. Wonderful that you're happy. Mother Teresa says happiness consists in being fruitful. Sounds like you are in the work you do!
