I stayed home from work again today, still not feeling great, but by this evening I'm doing a bit better.....

Today as I had hours of time on my hands I thought about my weight loss journey, how I felt at the beginning and how I'm feeling now, I won't say end as I don't believe the journey can ever end....
I was down to 139 this morning, still in my range, I have been as low as 138 and up to 143.
It is a balancing act, trying to maintain..one has to still watch portions and make healthy choices..exercise most days and keep trying to challenge your self to do your best....

With the Holidays fast approaching I have a different view than I did back in 2006........I have learned to eat small portions of my favorite foods....I have learned that I can stop eating when I have had enough.....I stopped making excuses for my over eating and took responsibility for myself.....I tell myself each morning that I am in control of the food, and my life....I won't give my power to anyone or anything.....will I make mistakes, of course..but I have learned to start each day with a clean slate.....I don't believe you can make up for over eating, I think you have to wipe the slate clean each day and even each meal.....I know if I try to skip a meal because I over ate I just do worse....so I start each meal as healthy as possible....and just keep moving forward...
I don't know if this works for every one but it works for me......it's not that extra cookie or piece of candy that got me to 347 pounds..it took lots more than that.....
The lesson here is to do what works for you, find a plan and keep tweaking it....
My thoughts that I started with are now completely different....This journey is a work in progress...and I have the feeling as time goes on I will learn more and more on how to live a healthy life....and to be healthy and happy...it's in me to follow the best path for myself

So have a healthy Thursday and try and do your best.....
