I have been avoiding the scale. I know the news will not be good. My eating habits have not been matching up with my so-called intentions. It’s a simple and as painful as that. I really want to learn how to eat real food and not go overboard. The shortcuts don’t work, at least not for long. Although I feel some frustration with the idea of starting over, I logically realize that this is a life-long process. There is no real “start”, nor will there be an end point. It’s just an ebb and flow of monitoring my health and my weight.
Of all problems to have, I guess I should count myself among the lucky. I am grateful that I am otherwise healthy and happy with my life. I have one major area to focus on* and I know I have the resources and support to do the necessary work. I’m really sorry if this all sounds like a broken record – it honestly does to me. But maybe I can kick my butt back into action and make some headway. It’s worth a shot!
*This blog deals with the two things I’m dealing with: weight and finances. I feel much more in control and confident in my debt repayment plans than in the weight/health related area.
