Crossing Paths

Sunday, November 28, 2010

I had errands to run yesterday morning. Instead of taking an apple with me, I decided to get "food" at the gas station to keep me company on my travels. I pulled up near the door and saw "Beth" coming out with a bag of chips to keep her company. "Beth" had gastric bypass surgery several years ago. She lost all her weight, but unfortunately for me, I never got to see her at her goal weight. I had heard that she had regained her weight, and sadly, I saw that it was true. You would think this "chance" encounter would have swayed me from purchasing the "food" I had thought about, but it didn't. I bought it and I ate it while I was driving. The one thing it did do for me was get me back into tracking my nutrition. I did not wait until tomorrow when I could start out "perfectly". I tracked it all and had a more nutritious day overall than I have had in a very long time. Thanks be to God for the crossing of paths with "Beth". I wish her all the best. There is no easy way to stay at a healthy weight. It requires diligence and honesty no matter the path you choose. Today I will do that by tracking my nutrition and putting some effort into making healthy choices. Thank you for stopping by. I appreciate your interest and support. Hugs from J

    I've known some who had gbp and are thin as reeds and others who gained it back. Seems it's not the surgery that's magical after all. Good for you, getting back on with your day!

    Beth is living proof if the head doesn't think long term, nothing works.. When I got help up in the head things got better, education is the way out of obesity..

    It really is an ongoing battle, isn't it? And I find maintaining much harder than losing because I start to allow myself those little 'extras' that I never would if I was trying to lose.

Good for you ... getting back on track!

    I liked this. I will have to admit I was sitting here this morning looking at my 18 month progress (I actually see none from 12 months) photo and thought, "Gosh, I look OLD!"....so it was nice to come and see your collage. It's all in how you see it, isn't it?
Hope you're having a great day!
