The Skinny

….on being skinny.

I’ve decided that the term skinny is relative. I’ve decided that I am relatively skinny.

So there!

That said,

I won’t reach my weight loss goal by July 1st. I am actually and relatively sure of this fact. I’m not far but I am too far to achieve it in the time remaining. I’m not devastated by the short-fall. The goal was optimistic to say the least. The high bar served up personal motivational brio. It moved me to move even more for far longer than I would have otherwise. Being part of this group, spurring me to join other groups provided extra cheese impetus.

I’ve learned some things along this journey. I’ve learned that I can’t lose without moving. I’ve learned that I can’t lose unless a move much. I’ve learned that the rah-rahs, atta girls, and positive reinforcements are important to and for me. I’ve learned that I can. I’ve grown to learn that I will.

Thus, the regime will continue long after July 1st, for not only do I intend to reach my goal, I intend to go further and then to maintain my newer relatively skinny status.

So there.

Whoa, that is so true and well said. I've experienced the same things, and also the likely missing of my target date. I will be keeping on trucking too.

I don't get many atta-girls... maybe that would help?
