New is sometimes Old

Sometimes the best new thing is an old thing.
I've been eating better now for 6 months and it is finally paying off. I have lost enough weight to get into my favorite pair of slacks. WOW, what a feeling. They fit and are even a little loose. I put off putting them on because I didn't want to be discouraged and now===well, now they FIT.
I think that sometimes we don't give ourselves credit for a job well done. We are always looking for the worst in ourselves and criticizing ourselves. I have decided that I am not going to do this anymore,
Even if I don't get to where I want to be as fast as I want to, the fact that I eventually get there is good. I should not fault myself for achieving even small things.
I think we are too critical of ourselves most of the time. It just makes ME depressed and gives me the feeling that I just want to quit when I know I really don't want to.
I pledge to keep going. Keep trying. Keep my chin up and my spirits high. I will accept my results no matter what they are and go forward and not backwards.
Care to join me?
