Christina, I am so, so proud of you misses.
i admire your new found attitude to things you now plagued your weight and your mindset for so long. You listed quite a few small things that you are trying to control, instead of thme controlling you, but little things add up to a big thing.
As for the jogging, I think that was AWESOME, that you knew you were not going to cause yourself a massive problem by continuing to jog. Some people would have gone home after falling, felt stupid for trying to run with the bruise and given up, claiming they were not meant to be joggers.
Alternatively some people could have used the original bruise as an excuse not to run.
I know that with these admissions of change on quite a few things, comes the hard slog for you, to prove you are not a on hit wonder that said you would jog, that said you would ignore certain foods etc, then started to flake a few times and looked sporadic.
I know this won't be easy for you, because there are so many permutations. Ignoring certain things is one thing, but at what point do your mind and emotions betray you, if you have a shock to the system, or a day that just starts off on the wrong foot and throws you out of kilter?
If you're able to come here in 2 weeks from now and say you stayed true to everything you said, that really will be an achievement and I actually believe you are and always have been capable of that, so it's a question of you believing you are capable ond being as true to your words as you appear.
GOOD LUCK and keep on smiling. Every bit of positivity is a plus point, so store it up and keep it as a form of fuel for your mind, to keep you strong.
The outcome you want is yours to have and to obtain, it's a question of can you recognise strongly enough the steps you need to take, to be able stick to them like glue?
Chin up keep pushig and keep believing Christina. You are such a lovely and warm-hearted young Lady and I want you to succeed for YOU, because I think you DO have the potential to be AWESOME.
