Retired and loving it. I live in Las Vegas. I love reading and playing with my IPad. I believe in the power of positivity and try to seek out the positive in every day.

My Mantra: “Every day may not be good but there is something good in every day.”

December 2019

Our final chance to work towards our year end goals.

Mine was to reach maintenance in 2019. That is definitely not going to happen. I made it through November, and Thanksgiving, without gaining any additional weight. That’s my good news. However, since I have lost little weight since August that means I would need to lose 8 pounds this month to reach my goal weight. I am pretty sure that it will not happen.

I will not think of this year as being a failure because, even though I did not hit my maintenance goal, I did lose 5 pounds so far in 2019 and I am down 85 pounds total for my journey. Also, I did not gain any weight (that I didn’t lose, anyway) in 2019.

Am I a bit disappointed, yes. Am I disheartened and discouraged, no. On January 1, I will simply begin anew and accept whatever I still need to lose as my new push for maintenance in 2020.

I wish us all a terrific December and I hope that you reach whatever milestones you have set for yourself to end the year with a positive, productive, and goal reaching month.

Spark On!
