Dusting myself off & getting back in the game...

Took a little detour and will no longer continue to punish myself for not being where I thought I would be if I stayed on track. Reminding myself that this is a journey, and it really doesn't matter how long it takes me to get there as long as I reach the finish line. All of this didn't happen over night.

Yes, I could continue to allow myself to get frustrated over the fact that my clothes are fitting a little snug, but I'm not going to waste my energy on that. Instead, I will channel it into determination and an honest effort.

Similar to the previous times where I've managed to lose weight, I acknowledge the connection between my past & how my association with food evolved. THIS IS A PROCESS, and I give myself permission NOT TO BE PERFECT all the time. I make my own choices, and for the ones that are not so great, there is nothing that says that I cannot make that choice again.

The "d" word does not exist in my vocabulary; I prefer to LIVE-IT!

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Anytime family comes together there will be fun - laughs - and jokes. If you're the sensitive type in my family - prepare to have your feelings hurt. emoticon
