Default Commitment + Drive = Success

Good day my friends,

I have really enjoyed reading everyone's posts this morning. Welcome to the new comers...

Michael, you continue to set a great example of mutual support and encouragement for all and with your own journey. Like you my husband is in the process of shedding his 4X and 3X clothes and finding renewed joy in wearing some of his 2X clothes from the closet.

I have had a very trying and emotional 2 weeks with deaths in the family, a need to support 80 yr old mom-in-law (husband walked out), support my hubby and continue my other commitments.

Amidst it all, I am proud to say.....that although my weight loss has clearly slowed down,
  • I have continued the right trend, continued to be true to myself by eating under 1500 cals each day,
  • working out at least 4-5 times per week, and
  • tracking everything.
There was NO emotional eating, nor cop outs....yes it was very stressfull and I was so exhausted by the end of this last week. However, lots of sleep, and reading everyone's posts this weekend have anchored me.

I am looking forward to moving forward on my personal journey of health.

Wishing everyone the strength to find your personal commitment and drive to lead you to your own healthy success.

and for tomorrow, love yourself on Valentine's Day.....have a great week everyone.
