We can do this!!
As with every time I've begun a weight loss journey, I always experience ups and downs. I know there are several of us struggling right now and I want to encourage you to keep at it! I have always been the person that screws up once and then goes on a crazy eating binge because "I've blown it so I might as well go back to my old ways." It's amazing the effort I can put into being destructive! So this time I am trying not to focus on my mistakes but rather my little successes. The fact is, even if I do a few things better each day, it is a positive step toward my overall weight loss and better health. I am positive I will screw up but I don't have to give up all together! I also see that using this blog and relying on all of you is going to help when I don't feel like being good. I did not want to go to the gym this morning but I knew that it is where I needed to be. I went anyway and God blessed me by surrounding me by two very strong women who gave me the energy to kick butt on the treadmill and the eliptical! I am positive I would not have been able to put in the same effort on my own so it reminded me again how important it is to rely on other people when you are feeling weak. We have an amazing group of women here and if we use each others strength, we are unstoppable! WE CAN DO THIS!
