Length of Journey
Friday, February 08, 2013
So, how long is this journey? Do I get upset that I've been "at it" for so long? That I started out at 300 pounds and had to lose half of myself to get to goal? Does it bother me that I regained weight last year when my thyroid failed and no one could figure out what was wrong with me for so many months? Well, it does bother me that I had to be so sick before we knew the answer to my health issues.
But, I've figured something out about this journey that I'm on. Some of us start at bigger numbers, but it really doesn't matter. If we're true to ourselves, we're going to be doing this as a lifestyle change anyway, so we're at this FOREVER! We're ALL here for a long time if we're doing this right! Some of us just get more feedback from the scale! And honestly, the feedback of seeing the numbers drop on the scale as we're losing is so much more positive than seeing it maintain even when Maintenance is the goal.
For all I can, I want to enjoy the place I am on this journey. I'm learning something about myself that is going to help me in the long run. My desire is to make every moment count while I'm taking this ride ... and why not make it a wild one while I'm at it? Every day won't be perfect, but it will be progress!
