Mid Journey

Thursday, February 21, 2013

I was thinking about how incredible the journey is. I was thinking I feel great being over halfway to my goal. I found myself a little sad that the journey would come to an end. I know, I'll have maintenence. It's sort of the feeling I got when I got out of high school. The "new" world awaits - it took a journey of one class at a time to get there. Yet, a door closes and the feeling of moving ahead is, candidly, intimidating.

I'm glad the journey is a process. If I was suddenly goal weight, where would those milestones be? Those are great moments, not to be missed. I am thankful for where I am, knowing I've accomplished things I never thought I would, met some terrific people along the way, and learned that even when I was next to home bound for long stretches at a time that there is a wonderful world full of people that care.

I'm thankful for the setbacks, too. So far I have proven to myself that they are just setbacks, not pits that gobble me. They make me stronger. Because I've had them I learned that it is ok to reach out for help. In doing so I'm also helping the helper.

I'm liking this journey!

    Ever heard of the old popular song "Sentimental Journey"? My sister and I used to have fun singing that song in harmony. Harmony hmmmmm. When what we think, say and do are all in harmony, we will have reached the peak of happiness. But we do have to be happy along the way. Great job with your weight loss.

    How awesome! I especially like your take on setbacks. I too have learned how to be stronger. Just coming back from being sick for the last 3 months, I am just now starting back with a renewed determination!

    I'm so glad you're enjoying the journey! I am too. There were times in the past when I just wanted to miraculously wake up in a thin body. But I'm so glad that I had to work to get to where I am now. I still have a long way to go, but the journey is such a beautiful trip! A true learning (about myself) experience.
