Letting Go

Sunday, January 05, 2014

Okay, last year I started off with a plan and goals. Some of those were reached others fell short. I loss 35 pounds, but start this year out with a total of 22 pounds lighter than last year. Of course falling in May and walking around with a broken bone for 10 weeks did not help my journey. What I did learn from all of that is I have a high pain threshold.

It is time to let go of last year and begin this year with my new starting point. I have just pulled clothes out of my closet that I have been hanging on to. The "what if I put my weight back on?" and the answer to that is I am not going to. I worked hard to reach 211.4 for this years starting point.

I will work on my goals and action plan later to post to my blog. Happy New Year to everyone and I wish you a healthy and prosperous year. This is a little late, but I was away from my computer for 2 1/2 weeks.

    That is wonderful the achievements you did in 2o13. emoticon Importantly, you didn't give up, even though you had some rough times with a physical injury! emoticon I agree say good bye to those clothes. emoticon I'm doing the same. A few pieces I'm hanging on to, to serve as "reminders" of where I was. The rest I'm clearing out!!! I have 2 bags of clothes by the wash machine and one more upstairs! It'll feel GOOD to have them gone! :D Lets focus on doing the best we can each day...little by little, we are transforming into healthier lifestyles---keep it up! emoticon emoticon

    All that matters is that you're smaller than when you started the year. You've worked hard and earned every bit of pride you're feeling!

    I will celebrate those 22 pounds, gone forever, with you. That's a positive result and this year, no doubt, you'll have more such accomplishments. emoticon emoticon
