I didn't mean to be gone so long. I've been having a difficult time trying to keep on with my diet these past couple of weeks. I have been adjusting to a new work schedule, and adjusting to my promotion to management. I have been in training for my new position. So I just sort of put my diet on the back burner. However, I don't want to let life get in the way of my health and weight loss goals anymore. I'm tired of going down that road every single time. Just because I got side-tracked doesn't mean I've lost and that I should give up. It's not all or nothing, and I'm slowly coming to terms with that. If I mess up and get off track there's no reason why I can't pick up where I left off and keep trying. So I'm not giving up. Not this time.
