A Little Perspective
Wednesday, April 30, 2014
I put on a pair of summer shorts this past weekend and at first was angry about them fitting. These are the shorts I wore last summer, the shorts I wanted to have shrunken out of.
But then I realized that had I not lost the 10 - 15 lbs that I gained from the time I wore them last year, those very shorts would have been too tight for me to even button.
And this morning I put on work clothes. Note I work from home 99% of the time, so sweatpants become the norm, and dangerously so. And they fit, too, which is a relief because again, that extra 10 - 15 would have meant I would have been up the creek for today's meeting with a customer!
So here I am. A little dose of reality helped me realize that even though I have a long way to go, that 10 - 15 "drop in the bucket" really makes a difference.
Keep on keepin' on!
