Slippery Slope

This weight loss thing is a slippery slope.  Have you ever tried to climb up a hill with ice or snow or wet grass?  You get going, very carefully and very methodically and then as soon as you ever so slightly go off balance, WHOOSH!  Down the hill you go.

That’s how my weight loss has been lately.  I was going good.  Carefully.  Slowly.  Methodically.  I would slip here or there but no biggie.  Then, I ate a piece of pie (that someone told me was sugar free) and it wasn’t sugar free.  It sent me down the sugar path.  WHOOSH!  Quickly I have been slipping and sliding back down the hill.  It’s time for me to throw myself on the ground to make myself stop.  It’s the only way to stop mid-slope and not slide ALL THE WAY down to the bottom where I started.

I have goals.  Big goals.  Big why’s.  I will share them with you soon but for now, I have to throw myself to the side of this hill so I will stop sliding.

Weight loss is such a slippery slope.  A sucky, slippery slope.

Anyone out there struggling?  Anyone else need to throw themself off to the side of the slope to stop?  I am thinking of starting an accountability group on Facebook if anyone is interested, leave a comment or send me an email.  I would love some accountability to workout and eat right.

No more sliding.  Time to inch our way back up the hill!
