"Uh Huh" Moment

For the past few weeks, I've been a bit down in the dumps. Holidays tend to be rough with family drama that I can't control, I get so busy at work during the winter and I haven't had time to lurk here for motivation and support. I've also had it in the back of my mind that I'm not as successful as I should be at this point in my weight loss. I needed to have a "moment" to think and reflect, and that moment happened this weekend... 

Part of what's hard for me is staying in the moment. I tend to look back and see that I have lost/gained/lost/gained a bunch of times before and I guess I've gotten a bit cynical about attaining and maintaining success. So I'm either in the past or in the future.

Right now, I'm down in Key West on a little vacation with the hubby and I had that much needed little moment; I realized we had rented a car to drive and it's remained parked for the entire weekend. We've walked everywhere! Miles and miles and (OMG) my knees don't hurt, my back doesn't hurt, my feet don't hurt and I FEEL GREAT! It felt good to be able to let go of those worries and just revel in the now and how wonderful it is to NOT HURT. That's a great motivator to keep me on my path.

Great work.  It is hard to stay on track during the month of December.  We will get through this.
