Once Again, It Is About the Journey

It is so easy to give yourself a break when you have no reason or no one to be accountable toward. I mean, ultimately I need to be accountable to myself but I have spent 58 years lying to me...I'm so damned gullible and manipulable. So not weighing in for three weeks--weather prevented and then Christmas--that I knew I was up a tad. I accepted the consequences because I accept the responsibility. I made a choice to not pay attention to what I ate New Years Eve (and then the next day as well but that one wasn't a conscious choice. That one was a "what the heck" choice).

So being up 1.5 pounds did not come as a surprise. Nor do I feel badly. Made a choice and take the results. But I did learn that I need to weigh in for accountability. There is a reason that people tend to lose three times more weight by attending meetings.

And then I looked at my pictures again and I again saw how many pounds I need to lose. And then I shifted my eyes to a different thing. I saw my arms around my grandgirl and we were doing things together. That is what a day is about. If I keep at this direction of my life's journey, the weight will go away. All it takes is time and some vigilant focus and energy. I've got time. I've got energy. And I have my family and friends around me, supporting me, caring about me.

And that is what it's all about. peace~~

Taking it one day at a time is best. You CAN and WILL do it! The 1-1/2 lbs will come off quickly I'm sure and by then, you're on your way! Good luck!
