I have come to the realization that I am not going to make it to my goal by the date I had established. My friend's wedding is a month from tomorrow. The good news is that I have made progress. I have lost 16 pounds and my clothes are definitely more comfortable. At one point, just a few weeks ago, I was actually 20 pounds down but I have gained a little back. Disappointment is inevitable but I must concentrate on the success that I have endured and move forward with a full throttle.
I know that I am not perfect and I know that this is not easy. In fact, it ranks right up there with one of the hardest things I've had to do. Attitude is a main ingredient in success. I will continue to keep my chin up, brush off the dirt I get from falling down, and move forward towards that finish line. Funny, that finish line doesn't seem so far away as it once did. I know that I have the ability to do it, it just takes dedication and lots of focus. I'm sure that I will run into more bumps along the way, but those bumps are just there to make me stronger.
