Listening to my favorite song this morning.. and it was a good reminder. We must enjoy the small stuff. Life is too short.
One of my favorite little weight loss sayings..
And it is true!
What they left out in there is that maintenance is nearly impossible! I googled a couple years back and the fact is that the deck is stacked against me. Keeping weight off is virtually impossible. A quick search popped up…
I am one of the ones who has failed. I have failed over and over and over again.
But, I also am one of the success stories. I am not at my lowest weight right now. But, I am also not at my highest. A few years back I dropped over 50 pounds. I have kept at least 25 of that off ever since. Right now I am 46 pounds lighter than my heaviest. I am still obese and I am still fighting the battle. But, I have won. And here is a little photographic proof…
I am going to put this up here and leave it for those days that I need a reminder that I am a loser 😉
I think/hope that it’s pretty obvious in just my face.
Is it too late to post for the new year?
I swear, before kids, we were never late anywhere. And, I used to be able to just know off the top of my head what I had going on for the week ahead. I never needed to write things down… Well, maybe, that’s just how my memory remembers it. I’m sure that there were times that I was late or off kilter or forgot events. But, it’s way easier just to blame the kids!
Anyhow, we are progressing on our move. My parents are here this week and have helped us. We’ve done the Ikea run, moved some cabinets, unpacked a few more boxes, mounted mirrors and towel rods in the bathrooms… The longer we’re in this house, the more that we are enjoying it. There are still some issues. There’s been a repairman of some sort out here 3 times this week. And I envision more in my near future. But, we are loving the extra space and the park within walking distance. I am still working on getting photos taken of the house to share on here.
But, that’s not where I was going with this post.
I was thinking about goals for this year. I am hoping that having them out here for the world to see will do a few things. First, I hope that it gives me a wee bit of accountability. Second, maybe it’ll allow me to step back and look at them and prioritize. And, third, I’m sure that writing them out will spark my memory of others that have been floating around in my mind for the first week or so of this new year. So, without further ado, here are some of my goals for this year…
I think those could keep me busy for a long, long time.
Have you started working on your goals? Do you know where you want to go?
It was much easier to have goals when I was younger and the years were marked by progression in school and moving forward. Now that I’m not working and not schooling, I have to set my own course. Or, I guess I get to. I just hope that this is the right one. 🙂
