this morning as i was on my walking journey my old friend skip always lags behind. bless his heart he is old, has sugar, and is a bit over weight from way too many treats. anyhow, as we were walking this morning i looked back and he is very far behind. now on most days when this happens he just goes to the side of the road and waits for our return( we live in the country on a very quiet dirt road). anyways again, i look back and don't see him so i figure he is waiting. i run a bit with the others, we walk a bit, i turn around just to checkl......and there he is right behind me. i just had to give him a high five.
where i'm going with this is this....no matter how far behind we may sometimes lag, the pounds we lose or gain. we can come back and catch up. with determination, and drive. i told my dog skip i wish i could be like him. and that i needed to learn a thing or two from him. i say this as i have gained a bit this week. a half pound but still a gain. but will i give up, get upset? heck no i'm ready for the next week. i say bring it on. i can bring up the rear or i can move forward and win this race. i'm chooseing winning. i write this so i can look back at sometime when i'm feeling low and see how far i have come.
i want to turn around one day and see those old pounds behind me and the thin me coming in first. good luck to you all. michelle.
