Missing a day here and there

This is my 195th posting since beginning Weight Watchers. As we all know, when you are trying to lose weight, there is a tendency to quit if you “screw up” for a day or two. The thought process behind that foolish decision is something like, well, I gave it a shot, and now that I have messed it up, what's the point of continuing.

When it comes to writing a blog, especially if you try to do it daily, the same thoughts go through your mind if you forget to post. When I forgot to post yesterday, I remembered it at 3 a.m. this morning. I got mad at myself for a few minutes and then re-thought the whole thing. I am not perfect, and I will forget to write from time to time. Life gets busy and suddenly the day gets away from me.

The difference for me, because of Weight Watchers, is the fact that I can pick up where I left off and continue on my mission. I am not looking at my efforts as ruined because a day is missing here and there. I now focus on the fact that 195 days of writing live on this blog, with more to come.

So folks, if you don’t hear from me now and then, it’s not because I’ve stopped writing. I simply took the day off for whatever the reason, and you can rest easy knowing that I’ll be back. With the exception of leaving for a vacation that doesn’t offer me Wi-fi, I’m in for the long haul. No more apologies…I’m proud of my blogging accomplishments.

Talk to you soon.
