Breathe in. Take a long deep breath and look up at the sky and breath out. The air smells fresh and flowery. The breeze is a gentle caress. The sunlight is muted and cast straight beams from its center, some are partially obscured by light sliver framed clouds. Just me standing in the parking lot at Stop and Shop appreciative of a quiet beautiful sky. This is a kindness.
Another week is in the books. Tomorrow I will weigh in and find out how I did from a “numbers” perspective. I hope I did lose weight – I did my best and that is good enough. Will I be upset if the scale tells a different story? Yes. Why is that? I had to work a little harder this week. I felt hungry a few days and that was difficult. I made good choices and stayed within my healthy eating zones. Now I can’t help but feel that I should be rewarded for my efforts. That’s not a very smart way to approach this. I think there is a reason it takes time to get to goal. Time gives opportunities to learn more about myself. I look back and reflect on why I have to lose so much weight. Then I look forward and I reflect on future goals. I also dream about what it will be like when I finally get to goal. That will be a special day for me.
So… I’ll let you know how I did. Wish me luck.
