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.

What 3574 Days looks like:

2006 (275) 2007 (197) 2008 (250s) 2009 (225) 2010 (190s) 2011 (31 Weeks) 2012 (240s) 2013 (260) 2014 (245) 2015 (250) 2016 (265)

    Avery looks just like you!!!! It's so interesting to see you with long hair!! I know all about gaining wisdom as the years go by! I'm so happy that you know HOW to get the weight off. Me too, though for some reason I keep sabotaging myself and gaining every other week. I think I'm afraid of success! I DON'T WANT THAT TO BE TRUE!! We shall get there together!!! I have a Facebook group called "Sometimes, it's okay to gain WEIGHT"...where WEIGHT means Wellness, Encouragement, Inspiration, Guidance, and Helpful Thoughts.....it's a group of my friends who are all on their own journeys and sometimes just need a boost of motivation! If you want to join and check in whenever you DO get on FB, let me know! I'll add you!!!

    I have so much respect for you, you are a self confident woman just for the fact that you documented your pics and weights and posted them, I hate being on the other side of cameras.
