new motto

Read in The Calorie, Carb and Fat Bible of all places, but still a good theme for how I want things to go:

Never give up on a goal because of the time it will take to achieve it -
the time will pass anyway

Weight loss is proving to be a longer and more difficult process than I expected. And my efforts are kind of 'on hold' right now. But, I haven't forgotten about it, it is still important for me and I will start back at it. Keeping this blog going, even when I'm not actively dieting, is part of reminding myself to keep working at it.

I've also started down the long route to achieve two of my other ambitions - get a university degree and become a teacher. I'm start my course in February. In the past, studying has always been accompanied by cigarettes and chocolate. I'm over the cigs, but can I do it without the chocolate? Maybe it will take my mind of biscuits ...

Please keep the blog going! For selfish reason, because I like to read you, but also I think that if you (or I) at least think of yourself as being in a slimming endeavor, you have a chance of succeeding. If you officially give up, it will NOT happen.

I remember something I read in Dear Abby when I was a kid, corny but wise. Someone writes in and says "I am thinking of going to law school, but I am already 40 years old. It will take five years to get through!" And Abby writes back: "And how old will you be in five years if you DON'T go to law school?"
