I see the silver lining

Every cloud has its silver lining but it is sometimes a little difficult to get it to the mint.
-Don Marquis

Getting back on the horse can be difficult, but one must try or live in defeat.  To live in defeat is not an acceptable way of life.  Someone once told me you never have to get back to the basics you never leave them.  I left them and now it time to get back.

1) Weight loss comes down to burning more calories than you take in.
2) Plan my meals and follow my plan.
3) Get active.

So far I have done well this week I have met my calorie goal to be under 2700 cal per day.  I am trying to keep a positive mind set and with my food I am doing well.  As with my other health issues the sciatica is killing me, I realize that my weight is directly pushing on the nerve and it kills me when stand I have to start back to doing the exercises that were given to me in rehab.

So that’s the next phase to get back to doing.  The road to recovery sometimes can be long and twisting but I have to remember it’s the journey not the destination and while there are ups and downs I have to find that little thing every day that makes it worthwhile.  Right now, looking out at the snow, seeing the birds and hearing Kojack’s soft snoring makes me fell content and that ok in my book.

I am out of here.
