This is day 120 of my diet, and through ups and downs, and even a dreaded plateau, I've kept my enthusiasm. Some days are easier than others, I won't lie, but I remain focused and committed. I refuse to allow anything to seep into my mind that will be detrimental to accomplishing my goal. Good health is worth fighting for, and sacrificing for, and celebrating!
Sean, a fellow-blogger, hit his goal weight this week. It is a victory for all of us, when one of our own manages to crawl out of the obesity pit and up that gleaming "healthy" hill, and I celebrate those victories as if my own!
We all share a common bond - we've been through the battles and felt the impacts, together and singly. There is that unspoken acknowledgement that we know where each of us has been. We've been through the same battlegrounds, fought the same enemy. Some haven't made it. Some (like Sean) did. And the stories - good and bad - keep us motivated to continue on, to fight the good fight.
I can see Sean on the hill, smile on his face, waving the flag - and those that see him, pick up and move forward, hoping to join him there ...
We're on the way!
