A Lift

Things have been tough lately. Everyone has tough times. We get through them but it doesn't make it any easier when it is happening. I've said over and over again what wonderful friends and family I have and through the recent weeks in my life they have been the ones I turn to and have given me strength. I'm still not ready to divulge what is going on with our family but I'm coming to terms with it all. Every day it gets a bit easier. Funny how when life challenges us that that works isn't it?

Last night I had a phone call that really lifted my spirits. Something new is going to be happening with Weight Watchers and I've been honored to be asked to participate in a special way. I don't want to ruin any of the surprise so I'll leave it at that for now. On Sept. 1st though, expect to hear a lot more! *special hugs to that person who called*

It would be easy to fall off the path now with everything going on in my life. With the happenings of my niece (who we still are up in the air about), and our new happenings, added to having to go back to work after a summer off....it would be easy. I have to say, I've been tempted. Ultimately though I realized that in overindulging in food I knew I shouldn't have (or boy could I have really just gone for getting drop dead drunk) I knew the only person I'd be hurting would be myself. It wouldn't make anything else better or go away. So I've stayed on my path. Is it easy? Heck no! It's probably the biggest challenge I've had since becoming a Weight Watcher. I'm determined though. I have been since the end of June 2008 when I started this journey, and that doesn't change today.

What is YOUR journey like today?
