Red letter day

Tuesday, September 18, 2012

Today is a red letter day for me. I am half way to my final goal. I promised myself when I got to this point I would buy some clothes once I got here and thank God! My pants are falling off my heinie and I need nearly new everything! What a terrible spot to be in (he he!).

I've been stuck at a plateau for 3 weeks now, not moving and finally today when I stepped on the scale I was so prepared to be disappointed yet again that I yelled "Aw, come on! Wait...Woo Hoo!" It has spurred me on to stomp on my wanton desire for an oatmeal cookie at lunch and to plan a healthy-er dinner tonight.

I am a member of the Slowest Losers and believe me, I am right where I'm supposed to be. I had hoped to be at my goal weight by the end of this month but I'm only half way there. Disappointed, yes. But to look at it with a positive eye, I'm not where I was last year. My habits have changed for the better. I climb right back up on that wagon no matter how many times I fall off, and I fall plenty.

So yes, I'm not at THE goal I had planned, but I have hit A goal. And I'll keep working at it, until I arrive at my destination, no matter how long it takes.
