Ready for the New Year
Tuesday, December 29, 2009
Well - I must say that things have really changed for me in the past 4+ months. For Christmas this year I got a heart rate watch, a 3 mile walking DVD, The Biggest Loser for Wii and new weights to name a few things. These are not things that I EVER would have asked for until I found SP. And it was such a good feeling to know that my entire family (and Santa of course!) loves me so much that they went out of their way to get me what I wanted/needed to show that they are completely behind me! I feel so special!! And if that weren't enough - they bought me "little" clothes too. Some I can wear now - a couple I can almost wear - but they know that I won't quit until I can wear them all - such faith they have in me!
But - I am not going to lie - I jumped off the wagon(with both feet!) on Christmas Eve and ate and drank what I wanted for several days. In fact, I ate everything that I had been avoiding for all these months - I tried to do it in moderation - but I am talking about a cheeseburger on day and pizza the next! I didn't exercise either for several days. And guess what?!?! By Monday I was miserable!!! I felt like I had been poisoned. I was sick both mentally and physically. So - I am back on track and already I feel a ton better. And what really scares me about that little lesson is that I think that is probably how I felt most of the time over the past 10-20 years.....SO - Thank GOD for SP and everyone involved with SP! Let's rock it in the new year!!!!
