Thanks for the birthday greetings. Hard to believe I've reached that milestone but it's okay. :) You're right about the planning for college, too. I was actually working on his high school classes so he could have the chance to apply for a state scholarship when he graduates. He needs certain classes for the scholarship. I wasn't thinking that far ahead but he'll be ready for college before I know it. :) Enjoy your weekend.
Ha! Resistance to change is a defect in mine as well. I hate hate hate hate hate it! And then I get used to it (like six months later) and then I'm like, okay, that wasn't so bad! ;)
I went for a run today. And started writing down my food choices again. I'm frightened of failing too. But I honestly don't know that I can do that to myself --- I think the biggest thing I'm afraid of is if I fail, I might be like "screw it" and go down the rabbit hole and come out 200 lbs heavier. I know that sounds joky but I swear, I think I'm on the edge.
BUT... I'm not going to fail. Small choices, over time. I know you can do this too.
