And... breathe.

Wow. Okay, so this week has been a bit of a rollercoaster. It started on a major high, sunk to the lowest low I've had in months and months, and now I'm riding upwards to optimism again. Just goes to show, I should take everything more slowly and just breathe a bit more and just stop and think, and I think I should go a bit easier on myself too. I need to allow myself a little bit of failure, a little bit of lost willpower, a little leeway to be weak.

I don't have to be perfect.

But I do have to keep trying.

Weight loss is a slow thing. And the more weight you lose, the slower it goes.

That's fine. That's good.

In the end, it doesn't matter one bit how slow it goes, so long as it goes! So long as I'm not gaining, I am one happy cat.

(That's a happy cat.)



  1. Don't beat yourself up. This is a tough journey. Just try to start again. Good luck. I'll be back!

  2. You're so right, and thank you. I think we're all our own worst critics sometimes, and it's something I know I have to work on, hard.
    I really appreciate your support. Good luck to you too! :)

  3. You have a wonderfully positive attitude! You're right, real weight loss takes time, involves slip-ups, and most importantly, requires getting back up and keeping going after a mistake.
