Here it is, nearly the middle of February already. I don't think I've lost more than 1 pound since the first of the year. But I keep telling myself this doesn't discourage me. I have so much to be grateful for.
1. I have good health - no flu, no real aches or pains, no symptoms from my macular
degeneration, and I have the strength and stamina to work out almost daily even after
working at my job.
2. I have a good job - it is mentally demanding and keeps me moving around during the day, so
time passes quickly; the company seems to like my work so it's as secure as any job can
be these days, and it pays decently.
3, The rest of my life is solid - the house has no major problems or defects, I have friends who
share my interests, and I have the tools of SparkPeople to help me reach my goals.
4. My family members are all doing ok - adult children and their families are all working and
healthy, my husband is recovering from his skiing accident and looking forward to getting
back onto the slopes, and my marriage is steady and solid.
So what more could I ask for? I WANT TO LOSE WEIGHT A LITTLE FASTER! ! ! !
My dream is to be able to look back at this time and smile, the way a patient parent does in mid-December after listening to a small child yelling that they want to have Christmas NOW. All in good time we tell them. Well, I'm working hard and I know the weight will come off in time. I just have to keep working at it (I'm being good, Santa) and, like Christmas, I will finally get what I want.
BUT I WANT IT NOW!
