Sometimes 'good enough' is - good enough
Monday, August 01, 2011
Some years ago I heard someone say something like, "The great is the enemy of the good". I didn't quite understand it then, and even if I had I probably wouldn't have agreed.
Since starting this weight-loss journey though, I have to say I've changed my mind. Essentially what he was saying was, sometimes what you have accomplished is not perfect, but it's good enough. And that's ok, too.
I'm losing weight, but not at the rate I would have liked or wanted. Still, I'm learning new healthy habits. I'm understanding my own body and metabolism better. I'm slowly realizing that this is for real, and for life. No joking around, I'm in this for the long haul.
So in May I lost 8lbs, June 0lbs, and July about 5lbs. It's not perfect, but it's good enough. Looking forward to August!
Have a good (enough!) week.
