(I just did my blog post but it disappeared into cyberspace so I am doing it again.) I am so glad it is a three day weekend. My husband is playing gold with friend so I have the house to myself. It is a real treat. I just finished watching A League of Their Own. I have seen it but not in a long time. I briefly lived in Evansville, IN where it was filmed. I am doing well with weight loss and the healthy life style concept so far. I will soon need to start the transition into maintaining stage. That has never been my strong point. As a matter of fact it is the one part of dieting that I suck at. I think this time will be different. I know that because of Spark People. I have found it to be a tremendous resource for me while I have been losing. I know it will be the reason I can keep it off this time. It is good alone and esp. good when you need a quick pick me up from other members. I have not ever really had that. I think it will be a key component. I now understand that forgiveness of yourself is possibly the biggest part of a healthy life style. No one is perfect...certainly not me. I know I will do my best and be happy with that for once. I can now see that a true healthy life style is one that is flexible and livable. That is the only way you can truly succeed. You have to give up the concept that you make only good choices. You have to be able to participate in life and that mean the some of the time the right choice for the situation may not be the best choice for diet or exercise but the best choice for your situation. No choice will be the best at everything. That isn't even possible. You just have to decide to do your best and stick with it. I can do that!!
