I seem to have turned another corner. Most of the time I am totally upbeat about my continuing journey towards good health. I love exercising, eating healthily and doing everything I can to maintain my optimum health.
At other times the going is tougher. I have to force myself to exercise, writing down everything I eat is a huge chore and the word nutrition has an ominous ring - I just want to eat food!
I have just finished two weeks holiday and my birthday was in that time period and at the end of two weeks I seriously thought about quitting. I was not looking forward to my weigh in at Weight Watchers and I seriously wondered whether I wanted to continue. But having come so far I decided to keep going. I think it was that positive decision to keep going that helped me round this corner.
Perhaps we tend to think of the road to health as a straight path - but I know now there are many corners in the path and I have to be able to turn them.
I went to my weigh-in and I had only gained one pound. So I'm totally back to loving exercise and now I'm off to yoga.
Stick with it!
