As I continue to read weight loss blogs, watch the weight loss realty TV shows, and ponder my own challenges with food, I am struck by how truly, truly complex the issue of food and weight loss really are! Complex and challenging -- yes! But that doesn't mean they are impossible to conquer.
I know in the deepest part of my being that I have the tools and strength that I need to face my food and weight loss battle, conquer it, and change my life! I know it! I believe it! And I'm just going to keep trying--and keep trying--and keep trying until I make this happen for myself! And if I need to ask for help, I will! And if I need to join a gym to get the activity done, I will!
Yes I have struggled over the past few months, and I've written all about those challenges here. I've started and stopped and started and stopped. And it has been hard -- no lie! I wish I had made different choices. I wish I hadn't wasted time! But there is ONE MAJOR THING I've learned from these struggles--the thing I believe is KEY to my success with losing the weight and gaining the life I want:
I need to accept that imperfection is part of this deal!
When I struggle, or in my eyes fail, I need to pick up the pieces and
keep moving forward!
The next decision is the most important one!
I'm going to keep trying you all. I'm moving forward!
