BuffyBear's Journal, 31 December 2011


In many ways 2011 was a year of failures, but I'm not going to dwell on that - so here are the positive things:

Began a lifelong journey
Adjusted goal to good health (rather than just weight loss)
Started to eat to live rather than live to eat
Stopped using food as a pacifier/reward/drug
Net loss of 21 pounds (& wearing size 12's)
Found great supporting tools in FatSecret

And - an unexpected bonus -
the Best Buddies in the World

May all of you achieve your goals in 2012.

165.0 lb Lost so far: 21.0 lb.    Still to go: 33.0 lb.    Diet followed reasonably well.

Paula - I appreciate all your encouragement. Have the feeling you will make sure 2012 is successful as well (because good things happen to those who are willing to work for it).

Notfast - Same to you! I had wanted to start a list of things I didn't accomplish in 2011 and realized I need to move ahead on a positive note.

Happy New Year Buffy! Thanks for all your support and comments in 2011. 2012 has more in store for us too.

Yay for your positives! There will always be things we could have done, or done better, so it's best to accentuate the positive, as they say! You can add your list to your 'frig with your words of inspiration.
