apparently I am normal.

Normal people do not decide to eat right all the time, and stick to it till they get to goal. with no exception, no faltering, no eating off plan. week in week out.
Normal people do not decide to incorporate being active, into their lives, and suddenly they never miss a workout, they keep all their workout dates with no day missed.
normal people do have times when they say 'sod it' and eat off off plan
normal people do have times when they say...I am gonna veg in front of the computer/TV take your pick...just because, and take a day off from scheduled workouts.
Normal people do feel like dancing when they see a victory, whether scale or non scale.
Normal people do feel like crying with frustration, when they have worked had, worked out, drank their water, eaten right, and climb on the scale and see a gain/no change.

I have been subscribing to weight loss blogs.
suddenly I am a fly on the wall. into the daily lives of folks who are going through the same struggles as I am.
folks who need to lose 5, 10, 30, 50, 100, 200 pounds. The struggle is the same the rest is detail.
folks who have the same excitements, victories, elation, deflation, pessimism, frustrations, just like me.
folks who are kicking arse and winning this battle. some who are struggling with life and weight and points in between
folks who just like me, are just going through the same things, the same thoughts, emotions, feelings that I go through.
Folks I call NORMAL. I guess that makes me normal too. LOL.
