Slowly but surely

Sunday, November 23, 2008

I like to think that I have changed my bad eating habits and then I succumb to a moment of weakness. I think that is going to be my life. I don't think that I would be happy if I didn't allow myself my transgressions.

The weight is coming off. Slowly. But it's in my head now. So, it will surely come off. So far, I have lost 44 pounds. I have never, ever lost that amount weight before. Of course, I was never as big before either. But I get it now. I can eat pizza...and do....I can go out to lunch and order the nachos and still be healthy over all. Now, I don't stuff myself with four slices and I can push a plate of food away when I am full. But, I enjoy what I like. Success is the sum total of your choices. As long as the positive choices are greater and out number the negative, I can still make some ground.

On that note, I am going for a walk.

    "Success is the sum total of your choices."

    I really like that quote - it completely sums up what a "lifestyle change" is all about - not making the "perfect" choice every single time, but making enough choices in the direction of your goals, but also making enough choices in an alternate direction to make the whole liveable.
