Day Twenty-Nine…

Exhausted. Christmas is here and thankfully it all looks beautiful. I ate three Christmas cookies, and I did think about each one. I tracked them and needless to say this was not a “blue dot day” and now I feel a little remorse.  Learning how to manage cravings and bad choices is all part of the journey.

Sometimes (most of the time) I wish I didn’t have to think so much about this. To someone reading this blog they may say, “So what? She ate three cookies, big deal.” It’s not about the three cookies it’s the desire to eat them won over my better judgment. Anyway, it’s ok it’s only Sunday I can get myself together for the rest of the week.

Thank you for reading, and sending your support. Know that I send it all back to you as you travel your path to better health too. More tomorrow.

Day Twenty-Eight…

This week's loss

Every time I think about the journey as a challenge, I want to shift that perspective to a more positive stance. It’s not to say it isn’t challenging because (sometimes) it can be really difficult. But being able to accomplish this goal is an amazing thing too and I can decide to celebrate that instead.

So many people give up because they have not yet figured out how to make this work for them. I promise it is worth this figuring out, losing weight, and regaining my energy has completely changed my life. So… you already probably know what I’m going to say – you can do this too. Keep at it!

Change is inevitable and at times it’s sad. we are saying goodbye our local Hardware store. It’s been around for many years, and I think we are losing something special in its own way.
