Lost in the Middle

Lately my life has been very much like this cartoon....what started out as a good thing is out of balance right now.

I started out well......

I just sort of lost it in the middle.

I really want to finish well, but in order to do that I have to be a lot better at the middle part.

I've discovered that the middle part is important.

What's an oreo without the creamy middle double stuff? (Just two hard chocolate cookies!)

What's a sandwich without the middle stuff? Just two dry pieces of bread.

What's a book without the "middle stuff? ( Just two scenes without a plot.)

So drop some bread crumbs that I can follow.....I'm lost right now looking for a path.

Awwwww Sweety... you just need to re-establish your "want to"! When I was a sheetmetal worker - ugh... I had the job of running the plasma arc cutting table - which ran off of HUMONGOUS CO2 tanks... They were as tall as me and twice as heavy! And I had to MOVE these suckers! Everytime my CO2 ran out, I'd wander over there and move the empty (the empties were easy enough) and then TRY (and I mean TRYYY) to move this stupid full tank! And the guy who ran the big shear (who was 6'4" and weighed 4 of me) would laugh and laugh and say "All ya gotta do is WANT TO girl!" Well, believe me... I WANTED to! And I wanted to and I wanted to! And finally one day -- after trying for a million times, I was finally able to TIP that dang tank and "walk it" over to where it needed to be! I was sO proud of myself! And when I looked up, there stood Buddy, just beaming at me! He said, "I told ya... all ya had to do was WANT to!" LOL!

Now... you tell ME. What can I do to help you re-establish your WANT to? I would think that impending grandbaby would be all you'd need -- but we all know reason doesn't get the job done! There has to be sOMething though... I wish we lived nearby each other. I could SO motivate you if I was right on your block!

Boy I could not leave the bread crumbs that our Miss Melli just left even if I really TRIED HARD!!! She left so much wisdom in that post that I hope that you read it and re read it a lot!! She is so full of wisdom and I bet does not even know it!!
I wish that I could help because right now I am STUCK as you know. I know that I have not lost an inch or a lb and I could get upset too but I refuse to do that. I know that Satan has been after me really bad lately and I will not let that happen. Maybe that is what is happening to you too. I don't know.
I do agree with one other thing that Melli had to say and that is about your grandbaby. Just think about her/him. The healthier that you are for her/him the longer you will live to see them grow up to be adults. I thought about that once for myself and that helped me get into the swing of losing this weight. I just mention it because it might get you going again.
I wish that I had some really great ideas. Losing weight is one of the HARDEST things in this crazy world of ours to do...

I'm right there where you are right now, and I'm doing a longer post about it over at nancysbrandt.blogspot.com. Thanks for posting this. I needed it!
