My Journey - April 3, 2008

I started this journey on March 27, 2008. And here I am seven years later. Losing the weight is not about weight loss (surprise!). It's about an inward journey to self-discovery. Losing the weight is the "easier" part. Maintenance is where it really starts to count (cannot wait to arrive at that part).

I started this journey on March 27, 2008. And here I am seven years later. Losing the weight is not about weight loss (surprise!). It's about an inward journey to self-discovery. Losing the weight is the "easier" part. Maintenance is where it really starts to count (cannot wait to arrive at that part). I do believe when we cast a strong beam of light on the dark corners of our souls the illumination will allow us (if we are brave enough) to honestly examine how we got to this juncture in the first place. It is the only way the rest follows in a permanent fashion.

What separates SP from the others like it, is the community. This is the element that Chris Downie factored in for future success. Without the community's support, this whole endeavor would not work. I am grateful to Chris for his vision and to allow us here cost-free. It is humbling.

I know that if we stay the course here, ultimately we will succeed. I know, too, that I have had backslides, but the positive side is I have maintained over 20 pounds off for over five years now. And that is important.

Weight loss is hard. Losing a limb or two to diabetes is harder. Pick your hard.

I'll be waiting for you at the Maintenance Table. No hurry getting there. The place never closes.

The ticker is about as pointless as spinning the wheel.
