Who'da Thunk It?
Friday, January 20, 2017
Sometimes it can be easy to lose perspective in the midst of this health journey. There are days when I get caught up with comparing myself to others, or worse, getting nostalgic about different parts of my own history. You can get wrapped up in short term thinking and forget that this is a life-long challenge.
This morning I caught myself thinking, "I've only lost 90 lbs."
I was really starting to feel sorry for myself when I realized how ridiculous I was being. Have you ever heard that quote, "Somebody else is praying for the things you are taking for granted today?" That was me this morning.
Fortunately I realized what I was doing and stopped moping. Sure, I'm not where I want to be right now, on the wrong side of Onederland, but there's a lot that's going right. I'm strength training again. I'm gradually working through my foot injury and increasing my steps and cardio. I'm doing well on my 2017 goal for self-care. There are things I can improve, and there are also things I can celebrate.
I'm going to make today a party.
