Hmmm I think I am going to be OK

Wednesday, January 16, 2013

Monday was a really bad day. I got a flat tire, the spare tire was flat, the first tow truck couldn't help because the back tire was flat and my car is front wheel drive, the 2nd tow truck puts my car on the flatbed BUT, then my husband's battery died while we waited. You can't make this stuff up! I finally get on the road but, my morning was shot.

What in the world does this have to do with weight-loss? Everything! Ya'll know I've been struggling and despite my best efforts, I keep failing. Guess what? Obstacles (if you're a fan of O' Brotha where art thou OB Stackles) are everywhere. You will fail. I will fail. We will fail a lot.

However, I was inspired by my toothless son. Failure doesn't even register for him. He just keeps moving through life like a big bear unaware of his size. So, when I fall off this diet game I will get back on my aqua bike and try again.

I love you all and can't wait to get this thing back in gear. I really am going to be OK. Pssst It's almost my birthday month too! Me and Stormy are going to have a wear red and be fab day! I am looking forward to seeing how that turns out for all of us!

    There was probably a reason for all that disaster. No doubt you missed a 20-car pileup.

    Your honesty is awesome. You managed to put into words what I'm feeling today, how did you do that?! You can get back on track and you WILL do this, a measly flat tire can't keep you down! emoticon

    Hey Diva,

    YOU ARE GONNA BE OKAY............we fall down, but we get up..........been there, done that.....the thing you continued on, letting nothing get in your way, outside of what had already gotten in you way................if you have to start over everyday, then do least you are trying, some don't!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Now, when that birthday comes around, wear that "fabulous" red and be about it's gonna be okay.......(~_~)

    From this diva to another......just....."keep it moving..........keep it moving"
