I had an interesting thought the other day that I wanted to share. I was noticing a change in the way my clothing fit and the way I looked in the mirror. It was so nice. But then I started to think about how many times I had been at this same point in my life. How many times I had seen that change and anxiously waited for someone to notice I was losing weight. But it would be.. Oh, I noticed you lost some weight...(and then under their breath I hear..AGAIN!). And it kinda made me mad. I was like.. You know what, Patti.. if you had just hung in there the last few times you attempted this.. you would be SOOOOO much further ahead. You would be near or at your goal. What are you doing to yourself. And I decided I was SOOOOOOO sick of being at this point that I was NEVER going to be here again. I am going to stick with it and get it done. What is with the starting and stopping? Where is it getting me? I am SO over it! Well, then I got excited. Because I realized that I don't think I have ever gotten to this point before. I have never thought of my new lifestyle this way.. as a new me. As a new way of living. A better, healthier way. I allow myself treats now and then, but I am still sticking with the plan, the goal. I can do this!! I seem to have a whole new understanding about it. I am SOOO excited.. and SO sick of it! I think that is really good thing. I hope it inspires some of you that are struggling. Just get it done. Be who and what you want to be FINALLY. No matter how long it takes or how slow it goes, at least it is GOING!! I wanna hear "you're doin' it rite!" NOT "FAIL!"
As a side note, I just want to let you know that even though I am not on here very often, I am hanging in there. Just not a lot of time. But if you ever need me.. I'll be here! Have a super day!!
