Just Put One Foot In Front of the Other

If you are going through hell, keep going.
-Winston S. Churchill

I am so tired of people telling me that you need to take things one day at a time, or just put one foot in front of the other. I haven’t yet figured out to take more than one day at a time. I get confused very quickly at my age. If I walked any way other than putting one foot in the front of the other, I would always be walking backward.

I want to tell them that I will live my life my way, and they can live theirs in their own way.

When someone notices that you are losing weight, or working, or whatever you’re changing, they seem to want to give you advice. My mama told me that all advice is unsolicited opinion. Everyone has one, but few people really care what it is.

I know I get off on tangents every once in a while, but I am really upset today. I had someone tell me that I will never lose the weight on my own, and told me to try weight watchers. Someone else recommended Noom, and another said Jenny Craig.

I could probably take up a whole page of diet plans that are available, I just want to watch what I eat and not worry if I’m losing 15 pounds a month, or five pounds a month. At least I’m losing, and isn’t that what this is all about.

For this reason, I am cutting it short for the evening. I am aggravated and I don’t want to feed negative energy into this.

Today I went grocery shopping, and spent almost $70 on fruits and vegetables, and some yummy cranberry cinnamon goat cheese.

My husband was fed cheeseburger soup without the burger, and he loved it.

We’re not going vegan or even vegetarian, but I don’t think it hurts to incorporate more veggie into our diet. Because of these changes, I have lost a full size, and I am proud. We have all been through hell over the past year and a half, and we are still walking. You can only go half way through hell, before you are heading out..

Sales on ‘I’ll Be Seeing You’ are beginning to go up again, and I am very proud of this.

Thank you for your well wishes, and I am enjoying seeing that more people are reading my ponderings and actually enjoying them.

Have a great evening, and I’ll chat with you soon.

I’ll be thinking of all of you, and enjoying reading some of the things you guys write.

Stay safe, and enjoy life.
