The journey to lose weight! WOW! I canít tell you how many times I thought, okay, Iím going on a diet; Iím going to lose weight for real this time. Mind you this was all talk no action. To think about it even further, I canít tell you how many times Iíve started this journey; actually doing something about it. Well needless to say, Iím starting again; doing something about it. I must admit; my last attempt, I did well; I lost 58 pounds, I have to celebrate that success; because it was truly hard work. I was halfway to my weight loss goal. Things were going well until I hit that horrible plateau and after six months of not losing weight I became discouraged. Iím sure many of you have traveled that path before. Well, here I am again, knocked down but not out. I getting up and dusting myself off and starting again. I can say that Iím starting out 30 pounds lighter than when I started the last time; I guess I can use that as motivation to propel myself forward. The most important thing is I am going to give it an honest effort; yes Iím on the ground but I donít have to stay there. Iím setting my new goal to lose 62 pounds by November 2014. Iím moving forward one step at a time, one day at a time. Best wishes you all of you on the same trail on trails similar to mine.
