Slowly, but progress nonetheless...

The past couple of weeks have been kinda stressful. I lost 2 friends, one died of brain cancer, the other, my elderly hamster, Danny. Danny and Dee were hard to lose, as we all know losing someone we care about is never easy, but I still did manage to stay on track (almost, but not quite) every day. I even went to a buffet and ate responsibly! I have to say, though, SP has some wonderfully educational and motivational articles on messing up-I guess it is common. I'm really working hard on no longer beating myself up, or deciding to blow the whole day because I overate at one meal, and work on moving forward, like taking an extra walk, or remembering I've come a ways now, JUST MOVE FORWARD. I've got some of my fave articles in "My favorites", feel free to check them out. On the upside, my jeans and spring jacket-which I've just put on for the first time in months, ARE LOOSE! Not by a ton, but it's noticeable to me; and I think the best part is, a couple of people have noticed my weight loss and commented on it-which is probably the best motivator in the world. I also notice, and maybe this is weird, but it's easier to get around-walking, exercising, climbing the stairs. Ok, that's it for now, I'll introduce my new little hamster friend I'm picking up tonite, probably here but most definitely on the Pet Lover's Group. Keep strong everyone-I'm rooting for us all!
