I was in the car this morning with my son who is learning to drive. I am pleased to see that he wants to get some more independence and is making some positive steps. As we drove down the street in our neighborhood, we passed a mother and her young son. She was helping guide her son who was learning to ride a bike. It struck me because I was with my son who is at the tail end of my guidance and here was a young mother with her son who is just beginning to give her guidance. I thought about how nice it would be to have my mother around to give me comfort, but you see she passed a few years back. She really wasn't much help to me in the ways that I needed her to be and I can only hope and pray that my two grown sons don't feel that way about me. I don't think they do.
Anyway, I have gained a few pounds back this summer. I have been living it up with wine and gin and tonics to my hearts content. But today's weigh in was a wake up call for me. 204 today. Last month I was 198. I was disappointed that I have gained, but I have to take the credit.
I made a promise to go back on plan 100%. And, so I will. I have. I do wish I could find some comfort about the weight, but the training wheels are off for me. I can't wait for guidance. I am grown. I need to do what I need to do and not take the road of denial. It is make it or break it time for me. I have a choice. I can continue being off plan or I can make the change right here to be back on course. I don't know how many of you have been lured by summer eating and drinking, but I hope that you can do what you need for your body to be healthy. Do it today, won't you?
