How many times have I been down this road?

Tuesday, September 04, 2012

It sounds like an admonition, but it isn't. It is actually a realization that I need to be on the path, no matter how many times I fall off. It is not about fitting in those skinny jeans (though that would be nice), it is about being healthy and able to do all I want to do in this life.

So, I am one month in to my commitment to myself. I joined Curves, and found my niche. I enjoy exercising there. The trainers really encourage me, and everyone there seems to be in this same place as I am-- giving it there all.

I also decided to open my mind and give Weight Watchers another shot. So, far so good, I found a session with a leader who is a good motivator.

All this makes me feel I am once again doing things that are in my own best interest. As Willie Nelson sings, "I am on the road again!"

    Good for you Madde - great planning AND you sound really upbeat about it all. REALLY hope it works for you - for a good while at least.
We both know that nothing is perfect on this journey - not that I want or expect perfection. Personally, I just went into panic mode today when I glimpsed the beginning of the slippery slope I have slithered down so many times. Thanks to soothing comments from you and others I have calmed down and put on the brakes. Long walk - a lot of window shopping for a diversion and the purchase of a birthday present for my youngest grandson saw me right. Feels OK right now - and perhaps my pathetic panic and recovery from it may be something you remember for your own blips.
Hang in there Madde - I wish you well for your new plans emoticon emoticon
