This Saturday in the wellness department has been monumental for me. Not only was it my 36th Birthday, but it was also day I completed a 5K Walk for the first time in over eight years. For only being serious about losing weight for only almost three months, I am proud that I did not finish last in the race and that I can compete at my age while still being well enough to do the basic things in life.
This week on the wellness forefront to say the least has been challenging.
Sometimes getting through the weeks can be difficult, sometimes it takes getting through each day or even every hour. It’s extremely hard when you live alone and I am proud to have my mother for support although oftentimes I don’t show it in the way that I should, but in the end, I know I couldn’t do it without her and her multitude of support. To here I sincerely devote this post to her.
his week on the wellness front has been trying, but not without its benefits. We’ve been serious about everything healthy for eight weeks now. In that time, I have built up to walking over three miles for exercise, been mindful when eating and have lost 21 pounds in that timeframe.
Welcome to yet another Wellness Wednesday. It has been a week of learning new things, celebrating achievements and being healthier. As you grow and learn from being healthier, it becomes easier for you and thus better in the long run. You lose more weight, and it is easier for you to do things.
Another week of plugging along with the wellness piece of my mental health recovery has proved well. From the surface it looks as if I have all the pieces of the wellness train together. At times, it can be real frazzled ball of mess of sorts.
Another week has come and gone since my last check in. I haven't disappointed you as 2.5 pounds just this week. In just six weeks I have lost 13.75 pounds. I have never in my almost fifteen-year journey at my local weight loss support group I’ve lost that amount of weight on a continual basis

This week has been monumental in the wellness realm. I did have a loss at my weekly support group, a total of three weeks at this point. I am beginning to realize that just like self-sabotaging before weigh-ins, I cannot set high expectations as the number on the scale is just that, a number and what it is, it is. Walking has been good to improve this number as well as being mindful of my calorie intake and drink consumption.
If anyone has been following my Wellness Wednesday posts, they have realized that I have begun the health train again. It had seemed that by not combining eating healthier and being active are detriments of getting the fires burning and keeping the momentum going..
