Journaling and it's powers .......

I wish I had the wit some bloggers do like Skippy I'd be a happy camper if I could look at things with that gift.  But right now I have no wit and even less of a sense of humor.  One thing I do know is that journaling is very theaputic and I am going to get back into the routine.  I have to remind myself that I started this blog because I thought I had what it takes to do the impossible .......... get rid of the weight.  Then when it didn't happen I quit writing and it only got worse.

This blog is for me.  Those that come to visit, I love you to death and always so appreciate your words of wisdom and encouragement.  Skippy I love you with all my heart.  Too many times bloggers dealing with weight lose start off fantastic and then for some reason fad into the dust.  I am not going to be one of those people.  I need to be here and do this for me.

I love my husband, my job and maybe not so much the hard parts of my life but I have to learn to deal with them and that starts now.  You may read some things on here that will make you wonder about my life but I'm going to be ok.  I am a survivor and I have to remember what Margie's last post was about.  It was about the letter "B" and it's about beginning and believing.  Tomorrow I begin again and I believe I can accomplish whatever I set my mind to and I am back with a vengence.

Tomorrow is a brand new day, a brand new way of living for me.  I may not lose that 15 pounds before July 9th but I am going to give it my best shot.  If I don't then people will just have to accept me the way I am because that is who I am and until it changes then love me the way I am. 

Journaling they say is the best way to destress and deal with everyday happenings and being able to let go of things that a person holds onto and should have let go of a long time ago.  I am strong, I am able and I am willing, may the force be with me.

  2. Hi Tessa, thanks for your comment on my blog. Good to hear from you! Yes, I don't want to ever be one of those bloggers that ends up in the dust. This is a journey that is lifelong. Good idea re: the TOPS bbq - we just had a luncheon and although I always encouraged "sensible eating" I'm not sure how many were actually "sensible" but yah, you have to want it a lot to be successful! Let me know how your BBQ goes! I'm curious. Is it like a buffet w/ everyone bringing salads or something?

  3. Hi sweetheart - I fixed my keyboard so I thought I would come back & retype my hieroglyphics for you because I am truly glad to see you.

    My comment should read:

    "My computer is not wrking well right now. I am missing some keys that work - but couldn't pass without leaving a comment.

    You are wonderful & doing the best you can. I will always be proud of you & I'm here if you need me. Take care & know we love you!

    Hugs my friend.

    Sorry for the awful typing. hee"

    How's that?

    Love ya! Skip
