At least I'm not alone

One of the things I really love about blogs and the whole blogging community, and it's also what I loved about Weight Watchers, is that you learn very quickly you are not alone. When things are happening to you it is so easy to feel like you are the only person that ever felt this. Well, by reading blogs and going to meetings you learn that is sooooo not true. Not only has someone else felt or experienced this, they got through it. And that is what makes this whole blogging thing so very powerful to me.

Recently I have really been struggling and it's making me crazy. Well reading other bloggers and their struggles really, really helps me. One blogger has gained back over 50 lbs. Another is back where they started from. Another one is even higher than they started at. While I feel for these folks and hope they get back on track, it helps me keep things in perspective. When I feel that I'm the only one having these problems, I want to throw my hands in the air and say screw it all. By hearing that others are having similar problems I realize it's not just me.

So today is Vetern's Day and I have off. I'm going to use this day productively. I'm going to walk/run this morning - probably for an hour. I'm going to get my desk here cleaned up and useful. I'm going to go to Walgreen's because I need more printer ink. I actually really need a new printer. Maybe I should look into a xerox phaser 8560. But I digress. I'm going to get my attendance book completed and up to date (don't ask) and I'm going to start working on my planbook so that is up to date (again, don't ask). I would also like to come up with some nice, neat organized way to keep the mail at the kitchen table. When Hubby grabs the mail on his way down the driveway, that's where he throws it It ends up in a big messy pile all over the table. I'd like some way to at least make it look neat. Of course, that means I also have to train him to put it in a new place. Ugh..... Again, I digress. Later this afternoon we will walk the dogs and finally tonight I am working out. I have not worked out in almost 2 weeks and that is complete and utter bullshit. Part of the reason I'm struggling the way I am is due to my not working out. My tiredness is also due to that. I fell asleep on the couch twice last night. TWICE!!! WTF!!!!

So bottom line is that it is going to be a productive day. Oh yes it will be.
