And I dove in. So much for my healthy eating plan and for my best resolution to stay on track during this vacation. I never ate past full but I ate everything. This morning, after getting home late last night, we began the first day of some home remodeling we’re doing on our new place for our move-in date of July 1st. I’ve got some cooking utensils here and some at the new place but for the next few weeks, we’ll be eating most of our meals at restaurants.
Having said all that, I’ve decided not to continue with my efforts to lose weight right now. This is a difficult decision for me because, instead of just quitting on my own without anyone knowing, I have to do it here publicly. But I promised to be honest and that’s what I’m doing. While I don’t feel like I completely failed, I am concerned I may have let you down … that I didn’t stick with it long enough or try hard enough.
Life goes on whatever our bodies look like. There’ll be no harsher critic than myself.
I wish you the best in your weight journey and, I’d love it if you keep me posted. I may be out there again sometime soon … or not.
