Winning is not an option

Thursday, December 31, 2015

I think what I learned this holiday season is that I'm never going to actually win this battle over temptation, comfort eating, and weight control. "Success" is going to mean being healthy enough to earn the opportunity to continue the fight. I'm going to be working on this the rest of my life, and I need to truly accept that and get on with it.

    What a wise thing to say! You have articulated the dilemma that most of us face, and while some might be discouraged by the bare truth, I feel that you are finding hope. Life is a struggle in so many ways, and perhaps the joy comes from fighting our way through to whatever modified victory it's in our power to achieve. I love this blog and will take these words to heart, as they express exactly how you've made me realize I feel.

    Me too, that is exactly what I learned this holiday season. Between the stress, family issues and food issues that will always arise, every year, I need to accept that it will always be a challenge, I will always have to be vigilant, and I will always keep on trying. This is my life, and that's how it is. So here we go, back to the real world, thank goodness, and back to our healthy habits.

    Wow, I think you nailed it. Funny, you summarized my holiday eating experience almost exactly. For this to be our lifestyle we have to be able to live with our changes...bumps and hiccups happen. The crux of the matter all boils down to what we do next. Onward! Best of luck as you continue on, deb
