Day 28 or is it? (Celebrating the Journey)
Tuesday, March 15, 2016
So it just occurred to me, that I am counting days based on when I recommitted myself last month. But honestly, my journey at spark people, my journey to a healthier me starting almost 10 years ago, on June 1st, 2006.
So in all reality, this is day 3574 of my journey. I kind of like the idea of that big number. It represents not just the days I have been committed to eating right and exercising, but it also represents the days that I backslid, that I re-gained and fed (pun intended) my fast-food addiction. Yes, I regained all my weight, twice. Yes, this caused and worsened medical conditions, but in the past 10 years I have gained so much wisdom. I am so much closer to really knowing myself. And I have gained a wonderful husband, and a beautiful baby girl both of whom bring me more happiness than I ever thought possible. And, though my weight has gone up and down, I have maintained a 5% weight loss from my highest weight!
So here is to the next 3574 days, may it bring me more wisdom, more happiness, and so many steps closer to a healthier me.
