In previous years, I have come so close to my goal and never made it. I am less than seven pounds from my goal and I really want to get there this time. I am really working hard to ignore the things that tripped me up in the past; my clothes are fitting better and I am even wearing a smaller size, I am feeling more energetic and really enjoy the health benefits of exercising.
Now, I just have to stay away from people that are telling me I look great and don't have to lose any more weight. What they don't understand is that I am trying to get as healthy as I can. That means, getting into the healthy BMI rating (I'm still overweight). I guess they think they are flattering me, and that is nice, but flattery is not my goal. I try to explain that I would like a life without medication, but I live in a retirement community and sometimes, their medication is all my neighbors talk about. I don't want to make anyone feel bad, so I just don't discuss it. I will keep doing what I am doing because it makes me feel good and I know I am adding years to my life. So, my plan is to stay on track and not get sabotaged this time.
