My SparkFriend Beth has been posting some fantastic blogs as of late (~INDYGIRL) . She has reminded me that this is not a quick trip, but a long journey back to physical and emotional health. Thanks, Beth, for reminding me that if I persist, I too can be Wonder Woman as I consider you to be. I get so caught up in the scale and losing weight that I forget that I am lowering my A1C, using less insulin, feeling more energy, eating more fruits and veggies and now drinking eight cups of water a day! But when I get on the scale and it has not budged, none of that seems to matter! Why is that? What freaky twist of our brain does that! I vow to consider all of the benefits of new eating ideas in my life and resign the scale for awhile. I want to guided not by a number on the scale, but the number of ways my life has changed for the better since beginning SparkPeople. I want to appreciate all of the new friends I have met here on this site that have given me hope again. God has indeed blessed me by guiding me to SparkPeople! May you all have the merriest of Christmas and healthy New year!
