Back on the Change Gang
Total loss: -66.4
One of the lessons I’ve learned on this journey is that anything you do often enough becomes a habit.
Habits that remain in place get stronger and stronger.
It’s a thread that becomes a string that becomes a chain.
There was a time when my life was shackled by bad choices, bad decisions, bad habits.
I broke free and found a better way to live my life. I started eating less, eating better, exercising more.
Each day that I stayed on my path, it got a little easier, a little more ingrained.
What I was doing was becoming habit.
A thread becoming a string becoming a chain.
Lately I seem to have been struggling against the chains I’ve built up for myself. Teasing them, testing them.
Make no mistake, I don’t have any plans to undo what I have worked so hard to accomplish. I know how quickly and completely things can unravel.
So each week I will step on that scale.
Each week I will update that list on the side of this blog.
Each week is a link in a chain that connects me from the person I was to the new life I have forged for myself.
And you are all a part of my chain gang.
