I intend to use this blog to get feelings, frustrations, excitement and any thoughts of getting back to my goal(ok and maybe other thoughts not related to weight loss?). Feel free to comment as you see fit.

"Failure is only an opportunity to begin again more intelligently"

I saw that quote on another weight loss blog, it's quoted by Henry Ford and I thought it summed up my journey pretty good.  Failure paves the way to success!  I have failed a few times along the way, but I know that in order for me to continue on my journey, I will succeed if I continue to pick myself up and march on!  Taking the road to success is the better option for my health!

My weigh in last week brought me down another 2lbs.!  I was pretty happy with that considering I had missed my last week weigh in.  I refocused like I said I would and succeeded.  The up's and downs seem to be coming more often as far as stess goes!  It has been a rough week this past week and I have veered off plan a bit.  The exercise level really needs to be back up there!  I really need to use it as another stress  reliver, it probably would have come in pretty handy!  So for this weeks weigh in ... (in 2 days) I am not feeling as positive, but I will go and "face the music."  The family and I went to dinner tonight and I indulged in dessert which was probably against my better judgement : (  Oh well, time to move on and tomorrow "begin again more intelligently."
