Coming to the end of 2017 and it's been a mixed bag, but I'm still here plugging away. DH and I started the year totally on track, then moved to a maintenance state, now he is back to old ways and I am struggling with food but totally on track with exercise. We had identified foods that don't settle well in our bodies and reduced many of them, now just avoiding several "serious offenders." My weight is up to where it was at the beginning of the year. On the upside, I exercise 5 days a week and feel more energetic and stronger.

When things go wrong as they sometimes will,
When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
When funds are low and the debts are high,
And you want to smile, but you have to sigh.
When care is pressing you down a bit.
Rest, if you must, but don't you quit.
Life is queer with its twists and turns
As every one of us sometimes learns.
And many a failure turns about
When he might have won had he stuck it out:
Don't give up though the pace seems slow -
You may succeed with another blow.
Success is failure turned inside out -
The silver tint of the clouds of doubt.
And you never can tell how close you are.
It may be near when it seems so far:
So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit
It's when things seem worst that you must not quit.
