Does there ever become a time when you say now what? I have achieved so much the last few years in my journey in which I am so thankful.
But what about now? What is my goal? I know that I will never turn back to the old Sheri the one that ate all the time and didn't care about what she put in her body. Nor will I ever stop exercising and fighting my disease Diabetes.
So now what? Well I will tell you that I will keep fighting the good fight. I will continue to weight and measure my food. I will continue to buy healthy foods rather than unhealthy. I will continue to drive home from lunch every day to make my lunch verses giving an excuse to eat out and choose poorly. I will continue to come home at night and change then leave again to go to the gym to run on the treadmill regardless of how tired I am. Its a beautiful thing there is no questioning what I am going to do, I just do it.
So you see, I made my goal and its a part of my life now. I can eat freely out or at my Mom's for the Holiday's and not worry or fret about it any more because I am where I want to be.
If you think for a second that this is an impossible place to be you are wrong. It is possible, I did it and many other blogger friends of mine have done it. It isn't easy, nor is it a quick fix! It takes a lot of time, determination, strength, knowledge and patients.
