Not a resolution

Sunday, January 06, 2019

I’ve tried to make resolutions before, I have made promises, said I’m going to do this. I let someone tell me for the last seven years I don’t need to improve myself, mess with my head saying I wasn’t going to do any better than everything I have at the moment. You’d be surprised how much someone who you think is the love of your life can sway you into unhealthy habits and life. I quit smoking when I was with him and he made me feel like dirt for doing this. Every diet I would try, he’d spend our grocery money on fast food. I blamed myself. The past year has been eye opening. I can do better, not just with a partner, but with my life. I need to care about myself and not put everything ahead of myself...will it work? Hoping! I may fail time to time, but at least I am trying.

    You are allowed to be who you were meant to be. Sometimes it takes us a while to reach the point that we realize it, but when you get there it's life changing. You've taken the biggest first step there is... putting yourself first! With time and dedication you will bloom into the woman you're meant to me. I highly recommend keeping a journal throughout your journey. It will be interesting to read it one day and see how far you've come. Baby steps is key and I promise you that it will be worth it!

    Welcome to SparkPeople. We are all here for the same reason, no matter what our personal story is. We are here to help each other to get to that healthy point we want to be in our lives. It is not going to be easy, but it is attainable. Make small goals and they will lead to big successes. You have to make you #1 and tell yourself that you are worth it. And remember you didn't gain the weight overnight and you won't lose it overnight. It takes time, determination, motivation and support. You can get it all right here! If you don't take care of yourself you can't take care of anyone else. If I can help in anyway, feel free to reach out to me! You can do it! We are here to help! Welcome and get active on this site. emoticon

    You are allowed to be whoever you want to be and if you want to work on your health good for you! There is always something most of us can be doing to make ourselves mentally or physically healthier. I know it is hard when your partner is not supportive. Think about a small goal you would like to reach and set it. It sounds like you have plenty of determination
