Starting Over . . . Again!

Those of you who have seen my new hairdo will appreciate this picture!

As you know, I have been struggling, messing around, 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  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!



  1. Well, first, I have to say that I want this lion's hair. I just got mine cut, and it's too short! Second, I could tell that you had heard the click when we talked yesterday. Last year when you started, I kept telling you that you even sounded different on the phone. Yesterday there was a difference again, and now that you say this, I know what it was -- it was a sense of calm, a peace about you. You know I will always be here hanging in there with you.

  2. OMG, Cindy, that picture is priceless! It is so wonderful to see so many in our little group "clicking" right along with you. It must be contagious!

  3. Must be something in the air because I heard the click too! 2nd day in a row exercising and tracking. I think seeing you on Saturday was part of my inspiration. If God has helped you accomplish ALL you've accomplished so far, surely, with God's help, I can overcome these measly 7 lbs!

    Blessings, Jill

    P.S. I wish I had a sister like yours!

    1. Thanks, Jill...I'm glad you clicked! I'll share Mary with you. She has lots of encouragement to go around!
