Here I Go Again!

Tuesday, January 14, 2014

The journey to lose weight! WOW! I can’t tell you how many times I thought, okay, I’m going on a diet; I’m going to lose weight for real this time. Mind you this was all talk no action. To think about it even further, I can’t tell you how many times I’ve started this journey; actually doing something about it. Well needless to say, I’m 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. I’m 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 I’m 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 I’m on the ground but I don’t have to stay there. I’m setting my new goal to lose 62 pounds by November 2014. I’m 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.
