Thank you for all the love and support over the past week while I've gotten down on myself and felt like a failure (especially so soon after a triumph). I can't promise that I won't take out the tiny violin at some future point, but for now it's back in its case.
And while I hate to hear it coming from other people, there's some comfort in knowing that I'm not the only one who slips up, loses sight of the journey, or has to fight some demons.
I have read over and over again the statistic regarding weight loss, for example:
- people that lose 1-2lbs a week are most likely to keep it off
- people that food log are most likely to keep it off
You'll Never Walk Alone
(each line of title/lyric is a link to a different version of the song, but the link in the title and the video below are two of my favorites, mainly because they're so simple and straightforwardly sung)
When you walk through a stormhold your head up high
And don't be afraid of the dark.
At the end of a storm is a golden sky
And the sweet silver song of a lark.
Walk on through the wind,
Walk on through the rain,
Tho' your dreams be tossed and blown.
Walk on, walk on with hope in your heart
And you'll never walk alone,
You'll never walk alone.
