Gratitude

It is funny.  When I wrote out my fears of weight loss I never expected them to be so similar to so many others.  I mean, I knew intrinsically that may people have fears associated with weight but it seemed so strange that I can read other peoples lists and they can read mine and say "Yes, I know just what you mean!"  It is comforting.  I think that so many of us feel like we are alone in our weight struggles.  The numbers are ours, the food hang ups are ours, the love handles - ours!  But really they are all of ours.

So I'm grateful that you stopped by and shared with me.  It has buoyed me lately.  It helped me remember to eat breakfast.  It kept my lunch smaller than I wished.  It made me wonder why I worried so much about all of this stuff.  The fears demand I live in my head and dwell there, airing them reminds me to do the things that need doing and i can think it through along the way.

Thanks blogland.  I'm taking baby steps, and I'm sure to fall once or twice, but I'm going to make it.  Want to come with me?

Baby steps are what it takes! One step at a time. Slip ups happen, missing a walk happens. You can do this, and I am here whenever you need!
