Day 1: Need Support + School approaching....

Saturday, August 22, 2015


It's me again. Sorry for the hiatus. So much has been going on. Now I could delve into how this will be my last day one again, but I'm not going to put that much pressure on myself. I have enough pressure on me. I'm just going to tell you what's been going on and ask for your support.

I'm engaged and plan to get married on May 21st of 2016. He is absolutely wonderful. He's supportive and patient and kind and he loves me....all 176 pounds of me. Yes, sadly you've read right...I'm 176 pounds right now the heaviest I've ever been. I don't know how this happens and I've dealt with it in many ways and wallowing in self pity is not the way to go.

So I've decided to do the best that I can do. I can only push myself so far but I'm not going to pressure myself. I'm going to do my very best I can. That includes school and my health life. I'm going to do my BEST to work out everyday and eat 6 small meals a day. I'm going to do my BEST to get all A's this semester. That's all we can do really is do our honest best.

So for all those who are in need of support I'd like to end this blog with words I got from a recent back to school prayer vigil I recently attended. Until tomorrow, good night and God Bless.

"Good, Better, Best, Never Let It Rest,
Until Your Good Becomes Your Better
And Your Better Becomes Your BEST"

    Congratulations! He loves you and he is so right. Don't worry about your weight. Don't try to lose it just for the sake of losing. Be your own best friend. Enjoy this precious time in your life when you are young, beautiful and in love. Work hard at school, but have fun, too !

    First of all, congratulations on getting smart about a healthy lifestyle while you're young. It's never too late, but the sooner the better.

    Best wishes to you and your fiance as you plan your wedding. DH & I married young (by today's standards anyway). I was almost 20 and he was 22. Our 48th anniversary was in June.

    Now as to being at your highest weight ever, I suggest that instead of stressing about losing, focus on not gaining. What does it take to stay right where you are. Then make adjustments from there. Stick with the program and you will reach your goal. Be patient, be good to yourself and enjoy life. A healthy lifestyle is enjoyable not a chore.

    Good luck. I look forward to following your progress,.

    Congratulations on your upcoming marriage. So happy you found Mr. Wonderful! Don't worry about your weight. If he loves you the way you are he will love you how you will be. Just take it a day at a time and don't stress over it. Losing weight is a life style change and takes time. Just enjoy life and do what you know is right as far as eating. Wishing you the best with that and school. Take care.
