HCB's Journal, 18 March 2013

I knew my great Buddies would help lift me up! I am grateful I can ask for help and share my feelings. Yesterday was a rough one.

It is Monday. It is snowing. It is gray. It is cold.

It would be more acceptable if it were November, December, January or February. Minnesota always has "white" Christmas; it is the "white" Easters that irritate me.

I now realize I made progress this past year - although I have not chosen well; I am not over-eating. In the past, I might have chosen poorly and over-eaten!

Today I will make the huge effort to choose wisely. It is my intermittent fasting day - so it should be easier?

I am dedicated, determined, and diligent!

Hang in there HCB! Soon the winter will be a memory and you'll be wishing the mosquitos would go away! Isn't it great to be able to reflect on the year of change and see have different you look at things and how different you look from a year ago. That's an amazing feat! Keep up the great work!

You are so right - how we handle our stresses and disappointment is a big part of our journey. Persevere right on through that White Easter!

I hear you on the weather! I am in NJ and we have had maybe 4 days this year over 50, so all my runs have been in the cold.... we seem to get snow/ice/rain every 3 days. Nothing but dark weather :-( I keep looking at the 10day to see if there will be a break soon.

That blizzard missed me. We got a layer of ice. Yuck.

You can do it! Eating out is crazy, yummy but takes us where we don't want to go. No wonder we are all trying to get away from it.

Hey ole buddy! I too, am back after the winter/holiday/blaaahs. I am sorry you are having a rough time. But guess what? All your FS buddies are still here. I gained back almost 20 pounds so I finally got my mojo and got back on my ETL plan. At least now we are going into spring and summer, so I am going forward and you can too! You lost so much weight so fast! Whew! Maybe now that you have had a bit of a break, it will just come back around. You inspired so many of us, and you still do. YOUR ONLY A HUMAN we don't want to do any thing but help pull you through the eye of the needle. You will be back on track before you know it; we all do! :)

You know what that is a great attitude! Hang in there. We are all going through it with you! White Easter or not, there is still sun in the sky, family to be with and a Holy day to celebrate! Keep making those wiser choices and everything will eventually fall in place. Happy Easter!
