I need to remember this more often.





Where I want to be and how to get there.





This reminds me of what I am trying to do besides lose weight.

My Journey - April 3, 2008

Still here after seven years. It was time to revamp my profile as it kept getting "lost in the sauce" for unknown reasons. Weight loss is a scary process. Losing a limb or two to diabetes is even harder to contemplate. Choose your hard.

What many soon realize, it's not about weight loss (surprise!). It's about what is preventing us from embracing success. Ultimately this is a journey of discovery, an inward discovery of the person that we are, and the one that we hope we will ...
Still here after seven years. It was time to revamp my profile as it kept getting "lost in the sauce" for unknown reasons. Weight loss is a scary process. Losing a limb or two to diabetes is even harder to contemplate. Choose your hard.

What many soon realize, it's not about weight loss (surprise!). It's about what is preventing us from embracing success. Ultimately this is a journey of discovery, an inward discovery of the person that we are, and the one that we hope we will become. It's not a linear progression by any stretch of the imagination. It comes with bumps, weight loss, "plateaus", frustration. We did not get to the weight we are in one weekend of indiscretions, nor will we lose it overnight. It's a long tedious process. But I do believe when we explore those dark corners of our soul and cast a nourishing light there, the demons will scatter, and we will have a clearer understanding of ourselves, and what we really hope to get out of life.

In any endeavor, to be credible, you have to be fit, not only for yourself, but to create a successful business. That's our next goal. One gets fit for oneself, not for any significant other, or for one's children. Once we realize that, we have taken the first significant step.

It's never too late to take that first step forward. Meet you at the Maintenance Table. No rush to get there. It never closes.

Well for sure, the biggest problem right now is Dad is deep in denial. NO WAY can he live on his own and my DH, brother and I have talked about this. The safest place for them both is here. I can supervise them and for sure will get home health care as the need come (and I know it will.) Dad is very independent (aren't we all!) and I know just doesn't want to give that up. **SIGH*

I'll think about that book! Sounds interesting.

Hugs

I have joined the group and I just posted on the thread. I will get on over to the book store within the next day or so. I am really looking forward to reading the book.
What I mean by not knowing what to expect is, I have been in book clubs before where we meet once a month and discuss our books. I have never done one online . I hope we can get as in depth as if we are all sitting in the same room.
