I was very glad for my friend, Melissa, from the blog, "Try, Try Again", for making a mention of this post in her blog, and encouraging people to read the post. She had some really good thoughts on the topic, too, which you can read by going to the following link: Try Try Again. Melissa has been a great support to me in the weight loss journey, and I know you would enjoy her blog very much. Thanks, Melissa!
I haven't had much time to write lately, but things are going quite well. We are moving this weekend, which means going from a very crowded old run-down trailer to a house! This is very exciting for our family, and a lot of work, of course. I am very glad, because there will be room for our stuff, and room for everyone to have some of their own space. Very exciting!
My progress lately has been not good. I haven't been to Curves since before Christmas, and haven't been tracking my calories either. Once I get set up in the new house, I want to set up my program again. My time to focus on it is limited, because of family and work obligations. But I am going to do what I can.
I really believe that this is one of the keys for me: to be content with "good enough" sometimes. I just cannot completely focus on weight loss right now, but I am trying to make a pattern of better choices overall. I know what it would be like to be excellent, but I just can't seem to make the time to be excellent right now, in this area. I do believe this is one of the keys to maintaining my gains in better habits, instead of slipping back all the way to my previous habits.
I have been reading other people's blogs, and so many of you are doing so well. You continue to inspire me to not give up. I may not be as far along as you, but you are helping me to keep my eye on the prize, and not drop out of the race, no matter how I may have been slowed down. Cheers!
