Lucky week 13...I've made it to Onederland! My weight yesterday morning was 199.0!
I had spent about six weeks, I think, hovering just above 200. It was a bit frustrating not to see the scale move, but I knew I just had to be persistent. I'm so glad I did, and I have to say, it feels SO nice to have finally made it to 199! It seems silly, in a way, because why does one number carry more significance than the next? I guess it's just a mental thing, but I feel like it's an achievement I've been working towards for so many years, with so many setbacks and frustrations, and I just want to celebrate where I am right now.
I know there is much more work to do, and I'm up for the task now that I've found the way of eating that is satisfying and works for me, and keeps my blood glucose in control. I wish I had learned about keto many years ago, but at least I know now. I can feel and see my body repairing itself. Now when I think about diet and health, I'm excited about the future and feel like good things await!
Also, I need to say an "I'm sorry" to SparkFriends, as I have not been, and do not plan to be, as active on SparkPeople as I was in the past. For a variety of reasons, I'm realizing that I need to shift my priorities, and therefore my time, to take care of some things at home and in my career that I've been neglecting for far too long. So, I am no longer checking the "Friend Feed" to keep up with friends, and I won't be participating much on SparkTeams. Even though I enjoyed it, I've realized how much time I was spending socializing on-line, and I need to cut back. I hope to check in with the website periodically and with Friends when I can. I want my Friends to know that I wish them all the best with their goals! And of course, they shouldn't feel obligated to like or comment on my blog or my activities. And Thank you to all friends for your past support!
Happy Spring, everyone, and hope you have a wonderful, healthy April!
