At the edge of a New Year
Monday, December 31, 2007
Well, in the past couple months, I have gained about five pounds, which is the largest gain I have had since joining SparkPeople. Amid all the stress, chaos, and busyness, it really didn't matter to me either, which is a little frightening. Much of it probably came from vacation, where we were personally served a large "country breakfast" every day, so large that we usually skipped lunch! But, no matter - I am not even that worried about the gain, because with SP I know I have the tools and the knowledge to lose it again - and this time reach my ultimate goal.
This is the year - now is the time when I am going to let go of the hurt and traumatic events of the past year that caused me to eat foods I should have left behind. Even though the situation hasn't changed, I need to forget it and the pain it is causing me and finally focus on me. So, here's to a healthier lifestyle in 2008!
