I’m Learning to Cha-Cha!

So I’m not the first person to use this quote from Robert Brault, who blogs at http://rbrault.blogspot.com/ and I know I won’t be the last. Today this showed up at work and I want to do some sharing about it.

At the beginning of 2020, I joined the Killer Bee Hive on Facebook and also started exercising moderately. I also began, slowly but steadily to lose weight. And then I hit a wall.

Since July, I have been bouncing, rollercoastering, switchbacking, stalling, resting and I don’t know what other analogies I found for being in the 250 pound range. It is now March and those are still the numbers. But the analogy has changed.

I am not a dancer. I don’t have a partner to dance with, but I am going to look at this as a dance.

I am also seeing a counsellor. The shadows beckon. I must go back to find the reason why. Those are the steps back. The steps forward will be the release of old thoughts that keep me bound to this number.

I am here for a reason, but I don’t want to go back and I want to cha-cha my way forward!

Can you dance on a rollercoaster?


About Marcia Stehouwer

I have a great life (most days) and a small budget, so being frugal is one of my favourite hobbies. I started this blog after procrastinating for 3 months, on April Fool's Day. I knit, I read, I knit, I work... I am also about a quarter of the way through my goal to lose 100 pounds. So between knitting, working, reading etc., I also do some walking! EDIT: 2021. I am not closer to my weight goal, but moving forward. The budget is still small. We are renting our homestead and progressing towards our family dream!
