Freedom Friday- Therapy

This has definitely been an interesting learning experience.  I am determined to live a healthier lifestyle & have already made several tweaks to my habits.  While I am not in any way some sort of mental or emotional counselor, I want to share my personal experiences with all of you.  I do this because I hope that I will inspire others to obtain help with any type of change they might want to make.  

These types of changes involve more than just the behavior one wants to make.  I gave an example in my video above.  This is not just about losing weight & being healthier.  In order to achieve these goals, I have had to overcome mental & emotional hurdles.  This has taken several years.  It is really interesting & encouraging to see the growth I have gone through & the progress I have made.

I thought participating in STEPtember would boost my weight loss, but this week I only lost a pound.  Don't get me wrong- I'm glad I lost another pound, I just thought I would lose more with all of this extra activity.  I'm pretty sure it's because I ate bread this week.  I didn't eat a lot, but it is the first time I have really eaten bread since I started this whole new lifestyle.  You will recall that I started out with Keto for two weeks.  After eating bread this week and not losing much weight, I really don't think bread meshes well with my system.  Such a shame- I love bread LOL.

That's all right.  I didn't really miss it much, I just thought I would mix it up a little this week.  Bread is out again.  It will be interesting to see if this makes a difference with my STEPtember activity.  I have been posting videos of some of my walks.  I am hoping it will encourage people to donate to help pay for medicine, treatment, and equipment like wheelchairs for people with Cerebral Palsy.  If you make a donation of any amount, you will be entered into a drawing to win one of my creations.  Plus, you will be helping others- and that will make you feel good.  

Kevin & I went for a STEPtember nature walk with a friend today.  I got some great pictures- a little squirrel even ran up & posed for us.  It was so funny.  Kevin also got to see some bear poo for the first time ever.  Below are some pictures my friend took.
