Hope Restored - Thanks!

Let me first say thank you for the wonderful support I received yesterday after my depressing post. It meant so much to me. Seriously, it helped me more than you can imagine. I began to feel better immediately after reading your comments. Hope restored.

When I got home yesterday, I took the dogs out and then put some air in my tires and went for a short ride. I hadn't been on the bike since January 7th so I took it slow and easy. When I got home, I felt great. Riding seems to be the best exercise for getting me out of the dumps. And what great spring weather we're having down here! It's awesome.

Anyway, just wanted to say thanks for being there. I'm taking the advice you shared to heart and focus on one meal at a time, pick myself up and dust myself off and get back on the wagon, think positive, give up "dieting" for lifestyle changes, and know that this too shall pass.

Wagons, ho!


  1. Yippee. These ups and downs, we will all fall prey to ~ let's try not to let them get us off our healthy lifestyles or we will feel even worse. Glad you got out on your bike. Sounds like fun and thanks also for sharing your true feelings. Blog it works.

  2. I KNOW! Isn't the weather grand?? Now that our two weeks of winter are over, I'm tickled pink to get back outside for exercise!

    Go Tena, Go!

  3. Wagons, ho, indeed. Every single person who has tried to lose weight has felt the highs and lows of moods. It's ok. And that's why we blog: for support.

    I'm LOVING this warm weather.

  4. That's why I love blogging -
    We really are here for each other!

  5. I'm so glad you are feeling better about things today. Sounds like you are dumping the "diet" and keeping the hope. :)

    I'd like to hear more about the trip you have planned when you have a moment.
