I have been battling with weight for what seems like my entire life. Today I am looking at my life through a new view and I see myself going places. I see a healthier me, both for me and for my kiddos. I see a longer, happier life for my family and it feels awesome. I have yo-yo'd with numerous different diets and finally realized that just watching my calories, which in turn allows me to have little things I like now and again, is totally doable! I do have days where I slip a little, but I pick myself right back up and go on.
I have a long ways to go on this journey, but I am savoring every moment. I will look back one day, grinning ear to ear and say to myself "Yes, you did!!"
Now then, the holidays are quickly approaching. There is a lot of chatter among those of us trying to drop weight on how we are going to handle it. I say, enjoy your holiDAY and don't make it a holiWEEK. Maybe plan now for a really special treat you would like to have on Christmas, plan for your calories and go for it. Everybody has their own way of getting through the holidays, just know this, it will be here and gone before we know it.
Cheers to you on your weight loss. Keep pushing forward and have a great weekend friends.
