It's a New Day!

Wednesday, June 06, 2012

I haven't posted in a long time. I have sort of lost my way lately. I lost my mother on January 1st and my whole world was turned upside down. I started slipping back into old habits and have gained 20 pounds of the 100 I have lost. I am trying to stop the down hill spiral before I gain it all back. I realize when I stopped logging my food that's when I stopped caring what I ate. It is SOOO important to log, because it keeps you accountable for what you eat.

In spite of my weight gain, I have however accomplished many goals this year. I participated in "Relay for Life" in honor of my Mom, in which I walked a total of 7 miles. I also accomplished a goal I had set for myself at Anna Ruby Falls in Helen, GA. My husband and I had visited the falls several years ago before my weight lost. I was unable to finish the completely up hill, half mile hike to the falls. A couple weeks ago we revisited the falls and I was able to make it up the mountain with no trouble at all. What an accomplishment! I look forward to losing the remaining weight and continuing a healthy, active lifestyle. I know with God on my side, ALL things are possible!

    Sorry for your loss.

    Sending you a hug. Track your food. I just started here May 3rd and really typing the food in is the best diet strategy. I started out with just HUGE portions and by day two my portions were more reasonable and by day three they were in the right ranges.

    Good LUCK! emoticon
