Treading water

Sunday, January 13, 2013

I bumped into an acquaintance I hadn't seen for a few months this morning. She and I were about the same height and weight five months ago, she is now at goal weight and looks amazing. She looks 10 years younger, polished, just wondeful. I am so happy for her, like me I know she has been struggling with "middle age spread" for a few years but it really brought home to me that if I want to lose the weight I am going to have to try a lot harder than I have been. Actually, I dont find it so difficult to do if I plan all my meals out ahead of time, schedule in my exercise and stop allowing exceptions, so why don't I just do it? That is the million dollar question, if I could answer that it would solve a lot of problems in my life not only weight.

not complainin' just sayin'

    Yeah - we all know what to do, just sometimes life interferes, or we choose to make not-the-best choices, or we get lazy - it isn't easy!

    Hooray for your friend and hooray for you! Everyone has their own plan and pace to getting to the 'goal.' You'll get there soon enough, and the fact that you're even thinking about the million dollar question means you're making it a lifestyle change, not just a flash in the pan change. Way to go and keep pushing! :)

    Hang in there and keep pushing. In a couple of months when you run into your friend again she'll be saying the same about you!
