Week 13

Week 13

14 week ago I posted the picture to the left. I looked in the mirror and didn’t recognize myself. I had just got home from vacation and in a matter of weeks I had put on another 5lbs tipping the scale to 163. After seeing the doctor and finding out I had diabetes, high cholesterol and high triglycerides, I knew I needed to change my life.

I have reached my goal of 146. I have lost 17lbs and feel so much better. I worked hard and have seen the fruit of that. I have been thinking this week about what the future holds for me, and have decided I don’t want to quit. I really would like to see the 130’s again. So I am going to try and get to 139. That is 7lbs and doesn’t seem to daunting right now.

I get my blood testing done this week so look forward to seeing those results. We had the flu going around the house this week so it made for some binge eating around here paired with no appetite at times. I realize thay I cant give up on goals and although a brief hiccup is normal, I have to realize I have an illness and cant just eat whatever I want.

Thanks everyone that followed along and supported me during this journey! You all helped me reach this goal by holding me accountable here. Much love!

Week 12

Week 12

Motivation Monday!

Hello week 12! Its been officially three months since I started this journey of healing my body.

It seems like yesterday and at the same time a lifetime ago. Each new day presents me with challenges and triumphs.

Today when I weighed in I was at 147. I am 1 lbs away from my original goal. Kinda crazy! I don’t want to celebrate until I officially accomplish it though. A lot can change if I don’t stay focused. It takes about a week of hard work to loose one pound so I still need to keep my head in the game this week. Then after that, I will have a reset. I want to think about what’s next for me. I have enjoyed challenging myself and working toward a goal. It has motivated me and that is exactly what I needed here.

My husband has since had his own testing done and has found some health concerns for him as well. I wont be sharing that on here yet, as I dont know if he wants to be so transparent with his story, but it has helped me realize that my getting in shape can directly affect the people around me.

Who I want to be… I want to be confident, pretty, strong, energetic and full of zest for life. LIke the young women I used to be. I want to be respected, appreciated for my thoughts. I want to have something to add, a seat at the table. I want to have close relationships with my family, my children and the people I love. I want to feel connected to my partner in a way I can fully trust and share. I want to be free to be myself and not feel held captive by my beliefs or my personal defects that are not useful to me. This next phase of recovery for me wont just be physical but spiritual. Its always been spiritual.

Today Is the start of a new week. We are constantly rebirthing. New day, new week, new year, new phase of life, new decade and now a new season. This is the time of year we get to rest, absorb the love around us and soon we will be ready to bloom again!


🙏 Until next week be kind and take care of yourselves.
