August 5th, 2018 Something Other Than Me

August 5th, 2018 Something Other Than Me

Today: I maintained the integrity of my maintenance calorie budget, I remained refined sugar-free, I met my daily water goal, and I stayed well connected with exceptional support.

What's this all about? 

It's about progress, not perfection. It's about how you feel, not a number. It's about you and for you, not about or for anyone else. 

It's about living, not dying. It's about dreaming, not dreading. It's about freedom, not imprisonment. It's about opening your mind to the possibilities, not closing it to the changes. 

It's about acceptance, not rejection. It's about nourishing, not depriving. It's about a broadly consistent importance level, not short bursts of narrow focus. 

It's about wanting, not forcing. It's about doing your best, not trying to do another's best. 

It's about today, not tomorrow, or next week or the first of the month or January 1st. 

It's about committing to consistency with all your heart and holding on tight, not a halfhearted commitment easily released with the slightest breeze. 

It's about you deserving better, because you do. It's about you being important because you are important.

I took mom out for lunch today. We were joined by my oldest daughter, Amber, and my oldest granddaughter, Raegan (oldest by 2.5 weeks!), for a shopping trip. I spent a little time with Raegan while her momma shopped--and it went well for about 15 minutes before Raegan wanted to move, wanted her mom, or wanted something other than me trying to sing her into a smile. I was giving her a performance and she wasn't having any part of it! She's such a little blessing.

Precious!!! OMGoodness. She just melts my heart. Grabbing my pinky finger...awe.

Thank you for reading and your continued support,
