The Out of Control Spiral

Wednesday, May 08, 2013

There are so many things that have happened over the past few months that I have had no control over whatsoever! The loss of my home and the sense of independence it brought, the love and familiarity of friends when we moved from Vermont to Rhode Island, and then the loss of my husband of 36 years to lung cancer.
I never did have control over my weight in the past. It (control) always seemed to be that elusive butterfly meant to be in someone else's garden! This time however, I am going to take control. I am going to lose the weight and keep it off. I have to. I need to have control of something in my life! But I cannot do it alone and that is why I am here. Hopefully with the help of others I will succeed this time - and take control!

    I wish you luck on your journey . Every time I say I am going to * take control * I fail ! I have now replaced that word with *take care * . I pick my favorite voice * Angela Lansbery * and do a lot of self talking ! Count me as one of your supporters ! :)
