A Bulls-Eye - not a technicalilty

Wednesday, April 17, 2013

Yesterday at my Weight Watcher meeting - on their scale, fully clothed, re-hydrated after a stomach bug, I finally hit my target weight.

It's a great victory for me - a long fought one, achieved through persistence and patience more than anything else. I'm glad I've fought this fight. I know that winning this level bumps me up to the next - where I will be exposed to new and different things. But for a little while I'm going to sit back and breath a happy sigh. In these troubling times, it's a small tender comfort to me to be able to feel accomplished and in control somewhere in my life.

Beyond all of the horrific news from Boston - beyond the burden of having to care for our little broken-legged dog in even more restrictive confinement for another month (she's already chewed the covering off her external pin. It's a funnel collar for her now) - beyond the budget season, the responsibilities at work, beyond anything else that litters my stage right now - there is this bright spot where I can say "I did it".

And feel good.

One day, when I feel more together - I will post about what it's like on this other side of the fence.

Open your heart today, to someone who looks like she needs it. She probably does.

    Absolutely nothing wrong with enjoying your accomplishment - in fact, I'd say it's a moral imperative !

My cat had to wear that funnel. I felt sorry for him but they get used to it. Hugs to your puppy.
