I've come to think that a successful life is a continuous work in progress. If you look away for a moment things can go south. In my case, I haven't been paying much attention for 3 years and now I am in a huge state of discontent. I'm not happy with anything anymore. Why did I even think that once I lost weight everything would be great? That just isn't the case. So I am on a quest for contentment. This to me means I am grateful for who I am and what I have and I live in the moment. For someone who hasn't been doing that this is not easy.
I need to really get working on this so that my diet changes to something more suitable. I may not go over my calories but what I eat does not make me very healthy. For instance today: Poptarts, a few Pringles and a hot dog with some baked beans. I'm embarrassed to share, but this is my life and if I don't admit my struggles how can I fix them. This is the kind of eating that has me sick at home and missing work today.
Today I am grateful for having choices. Although mine are limited in areas that I wish they weren't at least I still do have some. There are people that have even fewer choices than I do.
My plan for this week is to not look backwards. There is nothing I can do about the past and I will not let it predict my future.
