Starting Over . . . Again!
As you know, I have been struggling, messing around, floundering...you name it...for the past couple of months. My weight loss has stopped. My resolve has weakened. I've been looking for the strength to carry on with this whole dieting thing!
And then...click. That's the way it happens. Something clicks and you're ready. You understand. It all makes sense and you know what you have to do.
I don't know if I can even describe what clicked. A year ago, it happened after seeing those pictures from Vacation Bible School. Now, I just kept hanging in there until the click chimed into my brain.
A year ago, I didn't really believe that I could stick with this plan for very long. Now, I have changed so much that it has been hard for me to see where to go from here! I think I was uncomfortable with changing even more that I already had.
A year ago, I couldn't really see myself getting to goal. I could see myself losing some weight...but not going the distance...even though I really wanted to finally get there. Now, I can actually imagine what it might be like not to be overweight.
The best part is that I feel calm. Not anxious. Not doubting. Just ready to take the next step. I still have a lot to learn. Hope you'll hang in there with me!
