I spend much of my life looking to the sky. There is nothing that means more to me than a beautiful sunrise or sunset. Cloud formations bring me to a stop. Constellations get my attention. Formations of geese, ducks or crane give me pause.
I love looking up.
But this can often result in awkward moments. Like when I fall over a crack in the sidewalk because my eyes were gazing to the sky, instead of watching the journey of my feet.
That’s really what this Journey to 50 is about, right? I can’t dream that my body will have a different shape. I have to pay attention to each step along the way. I have to concentrate on the path before me, rather than liking the idea and allowing my feet to wander where the prettiest sky might be.
While I’ve stumbled a bit…I still have maintained my weight. Over the past few months of 2012, my size slowly increased. A pound was added here, an inch there. But for the past 6 weeks, I’ve lost and maintained my weight! I am moving more and eating less and pretty soon, my Journey will be headed in the right direction!
