Even when things are riding high, and you are feeling good, even great, you can have a setback. The key is not to let it derail you. You might have to accept that where you are right now, is not where you are going to be long term and it is really okay. You are not perfect. Unraveling years of abuse on yourself and body takes time. and you may need to embrace yourself and know this does not last forever.
Me? Well, I started to have a meltdown this morning. I was feeling tired out, hot, and well, just plain tired of being fat and tired. I sat down on a bench I don't normally sit and a man from my building came to check on me. He walked across the street to check on me. He is very fit, and has 30 grandchildren and 16 great grand children. He came to see if I was all right. Geez. Nice, really nice, but did not help me to feel any better.
So I am taking steps to improve myself and I need to keep going with those. In the meantime, I recognize not to beat myself up for being someone I no longer want to be.
Baby steps. Embrace myself, and keep on keeping on.
