Hoping this is my Last Do-Over (for the 87th time)

Where to begin.

At the beginning? No. Too easy.

At the middle? No. Doesn't work.

Well, bottom line is. I'm back. Again. For around the 87th time that I swear I'm going to get this weight-loss thing right. Bah. And I'm not a big fan of pessimism, but I really feel a good dose of it floating around in the air right now. Blech. It tastes sour. And not that good, Sour Patch Kids candy kind of sour.

Why is this time different?

Well, I could sit here and drivel on about how this time it WILL be different, that I have a totally different attitude (I don't) and how my willpower is stronger (it isn't), blah, blah, blah.

Enough already.

I don't know if this time will be different. I want to believe that it will. But I am so tired of re-writing these absolutely inspiring, uplifting, rah rah rah, blogs that are meant to be a spectacular start to something great.

Because, I've done so many of these do-overs with weight loss. And honestly, I don't know WHY this time it will be different.

I know, I know - why be so negative. You aren't going to start on a good foot. You are knocking yourself down before you even get going. Be positive. If you make it work this time, it WILL work.

Yadda, Yadda, Yadda.

So. Why am I even here? Because circumstances are very different for me this time. And I really DO need this weight loss to finally work. I need it to finally make a difference in my life and to stick around. And I know I can actually do this.

{wait, is that a note of optimism I hear?!}

Here's to the journey. *raises a glass of water



  1. You can do it! I tried so many times over the years. You have to get so fed up with it that you finally stick with it. I can't wait to see your progress!
