It's been awhile

Wednesday, January 23, 2013

2012 proved to be a challenging year for me...while I allowed myself to get knocked down more than once...I didn't allow myself to stay down...I got up...brushed myself off and wiped away the tears and moved forward.

I didn't make much progress with my weight loss...I maybe lost 14 pounds...but I didn't gain 14 pounds...big plus! I didn't lose the inches that I wanted but I didn't gain any either...another plus!

But what I did do was gain self confidence and the strength to do what I had to do for has been hard but things that are worth having don't come easily.

2013 is off to a good start...I have already been challenged and came through with flying colors...where I would have broken down and allowed myself to be defeated a few years ago...I knew I could do it...I just had to take a deep breath and focus...and that is what I did...and I did great!

I know every year I say the same thing...this is gonna be the year I meet my goal...and for several years I haven't but that is ok...because each new year I keep pushing forward...and I don't quit...maybe I do it on purpose...maybe if I always have that out there I have no choice to keep going...I guess I am kind of afraid to meet my goal weight...then what...what will keep me moving forward...
