Chapter 26, Day 3....taking stock

Sunday, July 02, 2017

2500 days under my belt, and I have not reached goal weight? So then, WHAT IS the timeline, for reaching goal weight? Or normal BMI? Sixty million dollar questions.

Context. Relativity. The big picture.

More than 6 years have gone by since I started these chapters. That is a lot of time. Nothing says, mouse on a wheel going no where, with greater precision.

Will I write the same thing in another 6 years when I am approaching 70 years of age?

It is time to take matters in hand, with some real intent, and write a different story. I can affect change, and fill in the next six years with something much better for myself. How much do I want it? Enough to keep my "hand out of the cookie jar?"

Actions speak for themselves.


Enjoyed an interesting day out at a local nature reserve, where my granddaughter had her birthday celebration with her classmates. I'd never been there before and the place has been on my list for a long time. It's a great place, if a little small. I was struck by the number of different kinds of birds that have been spotted there. The scavenger hunt hike for the kids was a nice activity and something different. The guide was very good, and the kids were all very engaged, as was I.

Happy for my niece, who just landed a new job. It will be a great opportunity for her to cultivate a career. She deserves this; it is a joy to see her creating more opportunity for herself in this way; she is the primary source of income for her family, having married a man who has epilepsy.

Whittled away at client deliverables. Nice to see the pile smaller, that grew while the audit ensued. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. I think I might actually get to enjoy half of July, seeing a much lighter client load thereafter.

Started a new 5% Weight Loss Challenge for the summer. Timing is perfect.

Finish my coffee and get out for a morning walk.

Get a game plan together for the day's healthy meals.

Enjoy the glorious cooler, sunny summer day.

Keep whittling away at the client work pile of deliverables.

Wishing us all a relaxing day!

    All we can do is keep trying I guess. One of these times things will click and the habits will be better ones. Hoping for us all.
    Sounds like a fun time at the party. I would have enjoyed that place I think.

    I like the sound of the nature reserve would have fun there too. You always do such fun things with the grands. You are always keeping busy as usual. emoticon
    I am always happy that you are still here and working on better health. I think it keeps you moving forward and the challenges give you a boost.
    You will get there Vicki, it works different for all of us. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I know what you mean, I have been here since 2012, and I weigh more than I did when I joined. Just 5 pounds but that was not what I planned on doing. And it has been a lot more, so I need to get at it, also.
