If nothing changes - nothing changes!

Wow, saw this as a Sparkpost on Facebook yesterday and it hit me like a ton of bricks!!!! I have to change before my body can!

Sooooo - in answer to my last blog - no the severe restricting of calories did not work for long - you and I both knew it wouldn't didn't we?

My therapist and I had a long talk day before yesterday and she told me to grab hold of a saying that was close to my heart and hang on - that evening I found a "pretty" in the store - A rock shaped like a foot that says Believe. I bought that rock and haven't hardly let go of it and then the quote about changes smacked me in the head.

So - what am I going to do? Well, I'm going back to what worked the first time with a little modification. I did lots of exercise and low carb the first time. I really got into the low carb life style and you loose weight quickly that way but after a year I just couldn't stick with it anymore. I am back to exercising and will be eating a medium carb diet.

And my little pretty foot - well it means a lot because years ago was my truly first time losing weight and I did that by walking - a lot. Now - well I can't walk one step without using two canes and then only to go get in truck - I use a wheelchair for everything outside house, and never leave my bedroom inside house unless I am going to Dr or church.

So I have a new goal - I want to be able to walk again - even if I still need the canes, by my wedding anniversary on June 8th, 2016.


edited to add = Happy Spark anniversary to me on the 15th of March - 10 YEARS on SparkPeople
