I don't think I have ever been more ready until now to really release the weight. Blogging was a major step toward my goal along with becoming one with water. It has been a challenge to give up the wine....not going to lie. Wine has always been my enjoyment, my social along with calming down and relaxing. If I had a bad day, I would definitely be buying and diving into the wine. On the weekends, it would not be unusual for me to have drunk between 3-4 bottles. Anytime I would have started a workout program to release the weight, my trainers always brought up the wine...I was never really ready to get rid of it. But now it is different. I am tired of being heavy and not being able to wear what I want. I want those cute little outfits that make you look all fancy and well put together. I have finally realized I am worth it and it is my time.
If you want to share your week please do. I am looking forward to hearing what you have accomplished. If you want to private message me, you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Your success is my success. I look forward to us all moving in the right direction together.
I am reading a book by Don Verhulst, MD "30 Quick Tips for Better Health". It is also a spiritual book, just to let you know. But with all that a side, you can take each tip as each day. That is what I am doing. Today was about relaxing, meditating and easing your mind, giving up what you can't change. When we are stressed, our bodies hold on very tightly to the weight and help us to collect more. When we are relaxed and we are at peace, are bodies start to melt. I think that is one of the reasons my body is finally starting to release the weight, I am finally letting go of what I can't change and the past pain that was in my life. I am not feeling like I have to stuff my face all the time with food. For me this has been monumental, I sometimes will tell myself I am not hungry go do something.
I am also going to acknowledge my win! I will celebrate with loving myself and being proud of myself. I may even go to the Farmers Market in Woodstock tomorrow and get me a sun dress. I bought a cute one on Saturday; it is an XL however, when I put it on it actually fit. Usually I would buy a dress, go home put it on and it doesn't fit. But not Saturday!!! Saturday was a dream come true...my body is finally starting to shrink.
Now for me is the next week challenge. I need to be strong enough to make it through the next week and not to go up and down. I need to keep my eye on the prize. I do a lot of self sabotaging, when something is going great, I always manage to screw it up. So this next week will be a huge test for me. Also, it takes 21 to create a good habit, so we are only in 7 days; we got 14 to make it really stick. For the next 7 days, I will work on making sure I make the loss stick and to continue to lose.
Okay my friends, it is Monday. Please share your stories; I really want to be in this journey together. However we can help each other win, I am in! We are strong beautiful women who can do anything!!!
Chat with you tomorrow!!! Keep going strong!
