When my son joined Scouting, one of the first things he had to learn was the motto, “Be prepared”. Well, this is good advice for us all, and I have to say, I am pretty happy with the way things are going this week. So far every day since Monday I have rolled over four points or more. Having a big rollover balance gives me a sense of accomplishment. It’s just another signal that I’m back on track.
This last period of struggle is the longest one I’ve gone through since I got to goal. I feel like the comeback kid. like it’s all second acts, and underdogs over here. I mean it is a battle to keep it off. The other day a friend said, “Well you keep it off, but it consumes your life.” Ouch. Does this journey consume my life? It does take a lot of effort – but maybe this struggle is making a me a stronger person. One thing I do know for sure is that I feel a lot better, and I believe in me. I am hoping you are on the upside of the journey, but if you’re not keep at it, just don’t stop.
One thought on “Be Prepared…”
I know what your friend means. I try not to let it consume my life. But then again, I am not interested in or willing to quit because I know what that means. I made a choice years ago to not drink alcohol and that has been a big deal for some people around me. I don’t miss it at all but they react with well, how THEY would feel if that were not a part of their life. I think your friend might have an internal dialogue going on. We all do, don’t we? Love your blog. I don’t see any comments out here, though. I’m surprised because your insight is very worthwhile to me.
Keep going. You will reach goal and your body will will get to a new normal.
