Straight to the point


Thursday, November 22, 2012

What? ME?!

Actually, I'm not talking about my blog getting straight to the point. Instead, I was thinking about the vision that many of us have related to losing weight.



Way way too often, we think of it as a straight line. Start at this weight, end at that weight - done deal. We think our graph will look like this:



The reality tends to be more like Billy's paths in Family Circus or, in the case of this particular variation, Kittycat's path:


(Copied from a blog, though I don't know where that blogger got the image from. Original credit is, of course, to Bil Keane.)

Now it's time I got to the point, wouldn't you say?

The point is that it doesn't really matter how many deviations your path has, so long as you work your way back in the direction you truly wish to go.

    Perfect analogy! I (and many others) get so frustrated when we don't see that straight line of progress on our weight loss journey, but I think mine does more accurately reflect kitty kat's route. :-)

  Love this!! It is so true. Reminds me of a pic on another Sparker's page that shows its is never a straight line but more like a squiggly line emoticon
