PROUD MEMBER OF THE SAPPHIRE BEAUTIES!

May 2013: Every choice counts. I have learned there is no magic. We get up each day and we make the best choices we can for our lives and our bodies. We cherish our family and friends, we embrace each day as it comes to us. I wrote the rest of this back early in 2013 when I was feeling sick and tired of feeling sick and tired. Progress is a good thing.

I just get tired of trying and stopping and trying. I am tired of being 'on a diet'. I get resentful and rail against life because other people can 'eat normally' and have a life and why does mine have to be different.

Sometimes I get tired of being tired. Of feeling old. Of being limited in my body. I get tired of not 'fitting' places. I get tired of struggling to do basic daily tasks easily. I get tired of feeling deprived and out of it.

But I heard Tom Petty once say he was not going to bemoan getting old because the alternative was worse. (dying) And I have to keep thinking of this in those terms.

When I quit struggling, trying, failing, beginning again- then I won't be ABLE to do any of that. I'll either be dead or maybe I'll be in a care facility where people have to take care of me because I can't. And THAT alternative is far, far worse than being tired of trying.

Hey Di -

Hope you are doing well. I am doing fine, but always trying a new version of trying to get my act together.
